50 and Finally Curly

Hi...I'm 50 and recently bc-ed after a 5 month transition.

My hair is short and my stylist did a wash and go after cutting off my relaxed ends a couple of days ago. She washed, conditioned, and added in some salon-specific curl moisturizer. I think I'm a 4a as my curls are coily and springy. So far, I have tried co-wash, leaving in some of the conditioner, seal with olive oil and finish with Jane Carter curl defining cream. I have to get it pretty wet for the products to curl up, but it sometimes feel dry by mid-day. I get considerable shrinkage too. I'm not sure what my hair is "supposed" to look like :p I've used relaxers for 42 of my 50 years! But no regrets with this change...should have done it earlier!
