i had another account on here but I forgot the cesifebtals. I've posted a few times on here seeking help about this concern but haven't seemed to have much luck. my biggest issue with my hair is the stop. The bottom layers of my hair I would say are 3b meanwhile the top sections of my hair confuse me A LOT. The roots are wavy/ frizzy all the way down untill midway near the end where the strands curl and are 3b. I've heard of having different curl patterns but this is weird because in one strand it's like there is two. I will insert pictures and if you guys need anything questions I'll be glad to answer. I also believe I have 3b/3c hair. I don't straighten my hair and I'd say it's pretty healthy.

    Gorgeous hair!  The top canopy looks a lot dryer than the rest.  It could be just environmental damage - sun and wind and such.  So concentrate getting more of your conditioner and leave in up in the top.  If you do everything upside down you may be missing that area.

    To add on to @Guide 65 's advice.

    I've had a lot of issues with my canopy being a lot drier than the bottom layers.  When this was a big issue, I would add an extra oil to just the canopy when I deep conditioned.   I also spend a lot more time on that area when in the shower.  When it was really bad, I would even use my deep conditioner as a rinse out on top! When I style, I make sure to use extra gel on top to control the frizz.   Good luck!  You have gorgeous curls!

    Agree with the previous comments. Making sure your canopy is moisturized will be a game changer. If you're still having problems with the curl type matching, I have the same issue in the back and very front parts of my hair and I usually have to finger coil a little bit in these areas to get it match the rest of my head.

    Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil Masque is my go to. It does have protein though. True by Made Beautiful Intensive Moisture Treatment Masque is another good one.

    my two favorite deep conditioners that have helped with my canopy frizz are NYMN Green Butter Masque and DevaCurls Heaven in Hair.  

    If you are able to splurge, I suggest getting a hot head or similar heated cap to kick up your treatment up a notch.  The heat will really help the deep conditioner penetrate
