I hope im posting in the right place! I'm new to this site but i have found it AMAZING so far, as it encourages me to have fun with my curly, 3b hair when im feeling discouraged! I'm fourteen and found out i have very curly hair when i chopped off my butt-length almost straight hair to my shoulders, and i've been curly for about 4 years now! I wouldn't say my hair is that damaged, because i really just let it air-dry and i dont straighten, but i am a swimmer and i've found the no-poo idea has worked GREAT for me! Just thought i'd introduce myself!
