Someone i know started a conversation with me she told me that'' my hair is like yours ,hard!''and she suggested me to get a relaxer she even wanted to bring one for me she said that it's easier to comb her hair now that she got one,i was trying to give lots of excuses so that she wouldn't bring it she finally gave up.That day and generally 99.9% of that days i was having a bad hair day.Today I'll try an overnight DT to see if it will make my hair more moist and softer.
I'm so glad I'm still marching on :toothy7:

    Good for you! Hold strong and you'll make it. Learning to say no to people is very, very hard but you'll be much happier in the end!

    You mean your hair feels hard? Are you transitioning or all natural? If it feels hard, could be silicone or protein buidup, in which case stop using protducts containing them and shampoo with a gentle clarifying shampoo. Good work on the DT. Keep your dry hair hydrated and soft too, by using a creamy butter or pomade ([buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/DevaCurl-Set-it-Free-p-259.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=devacurl-set-it-free]Devacurl Set It Free[/buylink] Qhemet Amla & Olive heavy cream, Jane Carter nourish & shine, Curls euphoria elixir).

    Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
    Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.

    I have to admit that most of the times it feels hare maybe that's why i got that comment.I'm in the 9th month of transitioning i've been trying to avoid the cones but natural hair products are to expensive for my pocket (i'm a teen).I just bought a bio-conditioner for 16 dollars but it doesn't give enough slip and i don't see much deference.
    SBB I'll love to try some of this products but i don't live in the us and it's so hard for me to find any of 'em :cry:That's why i can only find the a few commercial one's any suggestion from there?

    Just look at what's available in your area and online that is reasonably priced, and read the labels carefully.

    Since I have no idea what country you live in, I have no clue what is available to you, but as a college student w/ real bills, I can relate to your lack of money. :iconbiggrin:

    What helped me through the difficult times of dealing w/ damaged hair was to use affordable and accessible products like olive oil. I even added it to my conditioner. I bought a styling product from Blended Beauty online which lasts me at least 6 months. Just think wisely about your hair's needs and what is available to you.
    3b/c, medium-coarse, low porosity, high density
    HG: Jessicurl Too Shea and Kinky Curly Curling Custard
    Shampoo: nonsulfate shampoo and Suave Naturals sulfate shampoo when needed

    I've been using olive oil too.I mix it with my conditioners and DT.Thanks for the advice(i use to have money before but since i started my hair journey I've been buying so many products and the worst of all is that most of them didn't work about 99%,so now I've been trying to limit my shopping and try other products once i finish using the one i have coz i don't have money for wasting) i don't wanna be a PJ:toothy7:

    I just finished my transition in January. The olive oil was great. I would put it in the night before i was going to wash my hair and then i would shampoo my hair with conditioner or Cream of nature conditioing shampoo. It left my hair soft but not to greasy because when i was transitioning i was getting a press.:laughing7:

    Flower Princess, don't be afraid of silicones. They can be beneficial and they make your hair look and feel soft. They get a very bad rap here that is undeserved, and hair care is not one-size-fits-all because if it were, we would all follow the same routine. My hair looks and feels silky and shiny ONLY when it has 'cones in it, and right now my hair is very healthy. So if they work for you, use them.
    Modified CG. You'll pry my 'cones from my cold dead fingers! Mixed waves, coarse, below shoulder length, dark brown. I hate my hair :evil: but I'm trying to learn to accept it.

    Gels: LA Looks Wet Look Styling Gel, Garnier Fructis Wet Shine Gel. Condish: Alberto V05 Free Me Fresia, Tresemme' Flawless Curls, LVPNG, Neutrogena Triple Moisture. Shampoo: Tresemme' Flawless Curls. Silicone Serum: Whatever is on sale, but I don't leave home without it.
