Hey nadalno1, I have a drastically different hair texture (Type 4ish) BUT I think the basics still apply. I would recommend air drying your hair and using a conditioner like Tresemme Naturals or Aussie's Moist conditioner. They're pretty available at most drug stores and pharmacies. Good luck and welcome!
