Okay so I'm a freshly turned 16 year old and my dad is West Indian and my mother is Black. I'm learning how to manage my own hair and I would realllyyy appreciate it if you could help me. I don't know what hair type I I'm sorry that I can't provide that. I'll try to describe it..its wavy/curly and thick but not thick enough for an afro. But after always either straightening or twsting two days ago for the first time everrr I tried the Curly Girl method..and I LOVE IT! Minus the frizz that is...I know it takes time for hair to adjust and what not..oh btw..I don't get relaxers or perms and my hair has NEVER been colored. I would just like to know what do you guys use as moisturizers overnight because my hair is dry. And also can you pleasseee recommend overnight moisturizers that smell great. I tried Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum and fell in love with the scent. I'll post my soon to be new regiment...its completely flexible according to your recommendations and I'll attempt to post a picture :] Someone please help with my frizz and keeping my hair moisturized AFTER I wash it??
Thanks soooo much Curly Girls<3

And another question...while I never used it I didnt know Pink Lotion was bad for your hair...does this mean all hair lotions are bad? If not please suggest some great ones to use :] and please make sure they can be used on damp and dry hair...I know its alot but whoever answers thank you soooooo much.

    Hello Lala and welcome. Your hair is beautiful. I'm so impressed that you've never chemically treated it before. Congratulations. As for keeping my hair moisturized after I cowash, I like to use creams with coconut oil, olive oil or plain shea butter. I usually apply the creams at night and cover my hair with a satin scarf when I sleep. In the morning I'll apply a little bit more moisturizer and fluff/style my hair.

    At the moment, I'm using a shea butter concoction I created with almond oil, glycerin, and mango butter. I also like the Earthly Delight Hair Growth Pomade as a moisturizer, my hair reacts well to it and it contains coconut and olive oils.

    I hope others jump in make more product recommendations.
