I have 3B hair. and I've been chemically relaxing it since the 7th grade. It's been 15 months and a half since the last time i straightend my hair. thanks to my friend, she convinced me to let the relaxer grow out and keep my curlies. but im in the transition stage and it suxs!! i dont know what to do to it. should i keep blow-dryin until the relaxer comes out or should i start curling it now? what products work best on my hair?? btw, its half and half so if i leave it curly it'll look weird. HELP!!!!! i'm so confused and frustrated. i'm thinking of goin back to my straightner!!! its too much of a hassle!

p.s. I have "big hair" so i dno..

    Curl it! i know that pure, unrefined shea butter helps to curl hair, besides leaving it moisturized and shiny.

    im anti-direct heat, so i say no to blowdrying.
    all natural.

    my head is full of naps, coils, kinks and thickness. :)

    You could always do straw sets, curly rod sets, or roller sets at this stage if there is a drastic difference in the two textures. YOu could also get your hair braided. When I was transitioning my relaxed hair curled very easily so whatever I added it would dry up curly. I used leave in conditioners, setting lotion, and curl activator gels mainly.

    Do you plan to BC?
