Hello! I'm new, and I'm about 3a to 3c.. with alittle wavy hair in the back.
.. I really need some advice; I'm just offically gone curly girl
When I used to straighten my hair, I promised myself that when my flat iorn broke, I wouldn't straighten my hair anymore.
well, It broke... so I've been curly since This last April/May .
I've been following the curly hair guidelines, and don't shampoo anymore... and just deep condition my hair every week, at least twice.

yet, I know it's not enough. I've made my own products, but it doesn't seem to be enough.

so, I'd just like to hear and try some of other's recipes to get a feel on what I should improve on...

and are there any products I should try? I heard deva curl is excelent for my hair type...

I accidentally got sunsilk for my first product. big mistake XD

    well i personally love suave and V05 cheapie conditioners. they "cleanse" my hair daily while leaving it very moisturized. instead of using a real leave-in conditioner, i just...leave in conditioner. it makes my hair super soft.
    if i want to refresh my hair or add moisture, i put some conditioner, water, and olive oil in a spray bottle, shake, and spray. it makes my curls wake up and doesn't weigh them down. plus its basically free.
    leaving conditioner in my hair has a lot to do with my great definition, but i also use fantasia IC gel with sparklites. warning: it might be a bit heavy for your hair-type :dontknow:
    also! a great trick for supple, shiny hair...put some honey in with your conditioner. it makes my hair smell awesome, and leaves it shiny and soft.
    just some suggestions...hope i helped!

    hair type: 3c/4a, naturally super soft, and really prone to frizz.

    :love7:i heart naturally curly hair!

    agreed! V05 is great and it's 99 cents or something like that at the drugstore, so i always buy more than one. :)

    as for make-your-own products, flaxseed gel is pretty good. i cannot for the life of me find the thread all about the main recipe but there is one further down in this one:

    aloe vera gel (the pure stuff, not with the alcohol) has done wonders for my hair's texture, and shea butter, which i put on my ends only to keep them soft

    deva curl is supposed to be really good. i've always wanted to try it but since V05 is so cheap, i just stick with that

    in love with:
    vo5 vanilla mint tea
    suave naturals lavender
    la bella lots of curls
    shea butter
    herbal essences set me up
