Hi! I'm new to this site. My curls are very dry and would love to know how to get those shiny, smooth curls. If anyone has any tips, please HELP!

    Hi, katiebug. The key to beautiful curls is MOISTURE. What form that moisture takes (oils, emollients, aloe vera) depends on what kind of hair you have. There is much emphasis here on curl type and while it's fun to figure that out, knowing your curl type will not help you know what to give your hair to make it look great.

    I strongly encourage you to read through the information that's in the Newbie section -- it will give you a good starting point to begin your journey. Although I think this link is in that thread already, do be sure to read the information on this site very thoroughly:

    Good luck and welcome!
