How to manage my weird curly hair?!
Hi! I'm new to this site but I needed someone to talk to about my weird hair. Anywhoo, I'm 14 and I have crazy thick curly hair that I have absolutely no idea how to take care of. My dad is black and native american and my mom is black, white, and puerto rican. So I'm not exactly "mixed" but I'm exactly 100% kinky black either (does that make sense?). My mom started relaxing my hair when I was 4 and it was relaxed until about a year ago when I was 13. My hair is certainly thicker, curlier, and tangle filled but I still have relaxed hair on top. I think I'm a 3b but I have many different textures. I keep my hair in tight pony tails and buns but I know that can't be healthy. I can't wear my hair down because it's frizzy and in this weird in-between straight and curly stage so pony tails are the only thing I can wear. I wish my hair were healthy and completely curly so I can wear it down or at least stop wearing it in pony tails. Does anyone have any tips on how to manage this crazy mane of mine? And any products you can recommend? Hopefully you can understand this and thank you so much.
