Greetings

So I have finally decided to come out and share some pics of my hair and to hear what you think what kind of wavy, curly I am and how I could possible take care of it.

My hair was up all day.

And this what happens when all my hair is up and these shorter hairs come down and when they get wet they become curly.

    I'm still a little confused about the whole hair type thing myself to say with any certainly, but I just thought I'd say hi and glad you posted and I'm sure someone here will have some great input!
    Type: Course & thick. According to everyone's input, 2c w/ 3a potential.
    Color: Brown w/ highlights & annoying grays which I color.
    Length: Past shoulders w/ layers.
    Issues: Dryness, knots & more dryness!
    Poo: Deva Lo-Poo 1 x week, Clarify 1-2 x month
    CO Wash: Suave Tropical Coconut (but looking for something else b/c I suspect protein issues)
    Condish: GVPCB, LVPNG
    Leave-Ins: Was loving KBB Milk & Nectar, but overused them. Usually just leave-in some of what I CO with.
    Styling: Biolage Gelee

    welcome to nc.com!!!!

    I would say you are a 2-something, maybe 2B or 2C with possible 3A potential if you get your routine down.

    your hair is gorgeous!

    Beautiful waves! :happy2: I'd say you have 2b hair.

    It seems like you're taking good care of it already, but here's what I find to be helpful:

    1. Avoid water-insoluble silicones and clarify out ones you've already used.

    2. Moisturize well with a good conditioner.

    3. Find out whether or not you're protein sensitive.

    4. Styler = trial and error or optional. I personally like gels.

    5. Comb only conditioner-soaked hair.

    6. No brushes! The can give terrible breakage.

    HTH!
    2a/M-C/ii hair. Super long.
