Hi there my name is Lana and this website is so great for curly girls..

First i need a little help determining my hairtype but i believe that it is a combination of 3c, 4a & 4b. The back of my hair is much straighter than the middle, whereas the front is very curly and i tend to get the most frizz in this area.

Secondly my hair is THINNING!..OR SHEDDING which one i'm not sure..:S..and i have this build up on my scalp in patches..I live between the Caribbean and Canada and was wondering if the climate change would cause this?

My current routine which i recently started includes:

Shampoo: Mixed Chics
Conditioner: Mixed Chics
Leave-In: Kinky Curly Knot today
Burnt Sugar Pommade by Oyin ( i kinda find this a bit too heavy)

I discovered this website and after reading about sulfates and silicones became a bit worried as to if these could also cause thinning or shedding??

At this point i'm so FRUSTRATED and i am just using conditioner(silicone free) and using jojoba oil in between my regular wash.


Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance.
