Callng all Naturalistas--I'm a 4a chica and I need HELP!!!
So I'm 16 and I went ahead and did the big chop last summer, which I consider pretty brave for me because I always feared cutting my hair that short. Since I've cut it I've been wearing braids, weaves, twists, all kinds of protective styles. This summer I want to finally wear my hair out. It's very thick, pretty coily/curly, low-porosity (I think), and VERY prone to frizz. A lot of products seem to either sit on my hair or my hair just soaks it up and continues to be dry. I've bought a lot a popular products like kinky curly and Shea moisture and they have pretty much no effect on my hair. Even gels don't do anything. I'm young and poor as job's turkey and it is frustrating not being sure what to buy, I don't have money just lying around to spend on expensive crap. This is where I need help. Can anyone refer me to a good leave-in (that is light and creamy as that consistency works best for my hair) for curl definition and moisture? Also, any tips on blowdrying using the tension method? I need a healthy way to blowdry my hair straight. Thank you.
