I have a black father and a white mother, but most people assume I'm Hispanic before they hear me talk. (Some speak Spanish to me) My hair was always a problem until my mother gave me the Curly Girl handbook. I've made my own variations since reading it and people love it.
I use the Totally Twisted line from Herbal Essences: Conditioner/gel daily; shampoo and Wella In-Depth treatment once a week.
