I need someone to come teach me how to style my hair!

It looks awful. I've been CG for a few years and it was ok for awhile but it has gotten bad. The curls are stringy and undefined, and there is mucho frizz. Has anyone gotten a professional to come to their house to teach them how to deal with their hair? I try diffusing the curls and they look terrible so would love to have someone show me how to do it right. I really can't go to work with wet hair so letting it air dry is not really an option. And I would love to be able to blow-dry it straight every once in awhile but have never done it and have no clue how to. I'm in DC btw!

    I don't know about anyone coming to your home, but most Deva certified stylists are knowledgable about CG-styling routines. While they will likely promote Deva products, you may pick up some styling method tips.
    My hair: 3b, corkicelli, medium porosity, medium texture, medium/thick density

    Co-wash: DevaCurl NoPoo
    Rinse-out: GVP Conditioning Balm
    Leave-in: KCKT, Suave Naturals Coconut, or my rinse-out!
    Gel: SS FHG (my new HG!!)... I also like HESMU, AIF, CJ CQ, BRHG, CJ PP and the occasional LALSG

    Even though ur protein sensitive you may need protein. It doesn't have to be heavy protein.
    I would wash my hair with shampoo, add a mild protein snd top it off with a moisturizing conditioner. Even cg wash their hair sometime. U can se a no sulfate. Your hair is over conditioned. Hath.
