Hello everyone😊!! I need help!! I big chopped back on August 1st, cutting about 14 inches off down to 1/2 inch- I know- CRAY CRAY but I was ready to go natural and it was a BIG shocker. Well I wanted to get ya'lls help with figuring out my hair type and what are some good products to use. To me, ALL hair types are beautiful but I want to make sure I am using the right products for my hair type. Right now I co-wash with biolage rich moisture conditioner every 2-3 days and style with treseme naturals conditioner, Africa's best herbal oil and Eco styler argan oil gel. I only air dry.
I feel like I have some very dry spots as well.

Thank you and I appreciate your help with this

    Thank you & thank you for the link you provided. I will be reading up on it��. I've watched sooooooo many you tube videos and I have always thought the products are important because of what is said in alot of the videos. That's why I was asking about the hair type so i have an idea of which products would work best for my type hair. I have also found out I have low porosity hair. Thanks again!
