The College Curly
<--- that website is a great place to get started; it gives a very basic overview of CG (curly girl). It's basically treating your hair very gentle and trying to encourage it's natural wave or curls. I would also suggest reading the links listed in Useful Curly Links
and here Start Here!
Those will answer more of your questions, HTH.
