Is my hair afro or curly?

MissCurlyMissCurly Posts: 133Registered Users
Sorry I'm at work so I can't post pics right now, but my hair is like a 3b/4a when wet and when I wash and put conditioner in it looks curly and feels soft. After my hair drys it literal gets and feels dry and afro looking. I tried usings gels, creams or whatever to keep it curly but after a while that makes my hair dry to the touch sometimes crispy. All I want is my hair to look and feel soft and stay curly not fro up and loose all curl after it dries.

Can anyone help me or explain this to me???

I'm posting this on different boards cause I need help bad!

    Try leaving in your conditioner...it weighs the curl down and keeps them moisturized and thus defined.

    Please look at my pics on my blog:

    I just did the big chop two months ago. The front of my hair has 1/8th of an inch of relaxer, but the picture of the back of my hair is all natural and you can see it close up.

    HELP!!!
