I know this sounds stupid. But I always thought my hair was stick straight. Its actually pretty curly! I have no idea what products to use or anything! Even hairdressers don't know what to do with my hair, most tell me my hair just does its own thing! Its very dry and currently the shampoo and conditioner I'm using just dry it out and make it frizzy! Any suggestions of products and hair care are greatly appreciated!

    Welcome to CurlTalk!  I'll second the recommendation for the Curly Girl book by Lorraine Massey.  This is what started the whole CG method, so going straight to the source is good to start with.

    And just spend time here on NaturallyCurly. There's so much to read and absorb!  It'll take a while, but it's worth it!
