Hi, My name's Kadeem. I'm a frequent visitor of NaturallyCurly.com and just decided, what the heck, why not make an account? So, I did that a few months ago (mostly to ask about my hairtype). Since then I haven't been active until now. But, I plan on frequenting the forums more regularly.

I decided to grow out my hair in September of last year from almost shaven. So, it's been 8 months so far and my hair is about 4 inches (stretched) now. My goal is to have Mid-Back Length however many years it takes.

I'm still not 100% sure about my hairtype. I think I'm actually 3c on the sides of my heads, 4a on the crown, and just 3c, 4a, and 4b randomly distributed throughout the back of my head. My hair seems to always be dry and tangly.

So far, the products I've used (and currently use) in my hair are:
- Aussie Moist 3-minute Miracle Conditioner
- Cantu Argan Oil Leave-in Conditioner
- Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Curl Defining Pudding
- Ecostyler Styling Gel (Pink)
- Coconut Oil

I look forward to learning more about how to care for my hair properly, and some good new products and techniques to use with my hair. Hope to get to know some of you curlies! :happy2:
3c/4a/4b: Thick, Fine, High Porosity, Normal Elasticity, TWA
