Hi, all! I've given in to my hair so I'm transitioning to its natural state. It is so hard! I've been reading sites like this religiously for a few months and started wearing the curls a few weeks ago. I haven't had a relaxer in at least three years, but I've definitely used the hot iron and I'm super guilty of pulling it back too much so now some of the hair on my left side is thinning. Finding the DevaCurl products and using a t-shirt to dry my hair has really helped limit the frizz and form some curls so I got a DevaCut on Tuesday. Now I'm trying to figure out my hair type so I get the "right" products. I think I'm a mix of 2C and 3A, but I'd love to hear your thoughts! The front photo is post-DevaCut; the back is pre-cut and from a few weeks ago.

Thanks!!!

    Hello!

    Generally, it is more useful to know your hair properties rather than your curl pattern when picking products. It is helpful to know the porosity (low, normal, high) and the hair thickness (fine, medium, coarse).
