Hi, I'm from California - I'll be a college freshman this fall. I've always hated my hair, but maybe someday I'll love it.

I have 3B curls but years of straightening and dying it has severly damaged it. It used to be nice and long, down past my shoulders but it has all broken off to about shoulder-length. I've really like to grow it super long but it grows annoyingly slow. I tried no-poo in the past and hated it, it made my hair flat and tangly. I have intensely frizzy hair and I basically wash it every day just to reset it. But every morning I wake up to a beast that cannot be tamed!

I'm currently using all the Sunsilk De Frizz products, but I mix in Jojoba oil. My hair just can never seem to get enough moisture into it! Right now it's still not normal because it hasn't been curly all day in a while, my ringlets are pretty dead.

I'm moving this summer for college and unfortunately I'm used to almost no humidity and I'm moving closer to the ocean so I'm concerned about what is going to happen with my hair.
So this is my mission, to get healthy natural hair by summer, and keep it up so it can grow long. Any help and suggestions are certainly welcome!
