Hey there,

First I want to apologize for my bad English.
So i have these curls, I think it is 3B. But I hated my curls cause they used to bully me with it when I was little and so I always staightened it, like 3 times in the week for 3 years long. I'm 18 now and I love my curls but from all the straighting it's all damaged now. It's not like it used to be, now I have all kinds of different curls and its soooo dry and like 2/3 of my hair has fallen out. I allready bought vitamins with all the good ingredient in it, and every week I put olive oil in my hair, sleep with it and wash it out the next day. I'm also going to cut it next week, so I dont have these unhealthy ends.
But my curls are still really ugly, even my friends told me it is not like it used to be, if I style it like I usally do, it wont do anythink and it is so thin, you can see right thrue my hair if you know what I meann. So I need to buy new products like shampoo, conditioner, stylers and more. I dont know wich products I should buy, any tips? Cause I'm really desperate!

    Well having a similar issue with my curls but its due to over bleaching. One thing I would like to recommend is a deep conditioning treatment or you can even make a hair mask with at home products, such as mayo,honey, and olive oil. You will see your curls may come back slowly but surely. Also the aussie moist conditioner and their 3 minute deep condioner works miracles!!! I hope this was able to help you :) and im new to the site as well so welcome.

    Don't freak out! When I stopped flat ironing my hair I noticed a lot more shedding. Mostly because the damaged ends were breaking off and I had to find products that worked for the different textures. I suggest deep conditioning every time you wash your hair to keep your strands soft and pliable.

    I hope these tips will help your tresses.
