Hi Everyone! I'm Lorre. I've been on NaturallyCurly since last year but I never understood how to use it, so I never did. Now I want to know more. Can people point me in the right direction? Thanks a mil!

    To start, you want to know your hair properties. There is good info on that at the top of the page under "Hair Types". There is also good info about it at: Live Curly Live Free - Home where you can opt to get a hair analysis, if you like, and they make recommendations on ingredients for different properties. Then you can look for others with your properties (listed in signatures) and see what products they like. And, of course, you can ask any specific questions on the different boards and we will try to help.
    Be Happy!


    Experimenting with too many products to name here. All this great info keeps my head spinning. :happy6:
