I have 3b/3c hair myself. I have been relaxing my hair since I was 16. I'm now 34 and I always want to stop but it's like crack )
I have several low maintenance styles that I wear my hair in. Right now it's been 4 months since I last relaxed my hair. I have about 2 inches of new growth.
I wear one braid or two braids, a low bun or a higher bun. Or I comb my hair back and put it up in a clip.
I also use "it's a 10" miracle leave in. That stuff is really great and it's easy to comb my hair with it.
