Embracing my curl, Please advise me!!
Ok So I just started reading and learning all about everything and I know its all gonna take trial and error and will always variate but since everything in my shower has to go before I buy new I wanted some advice.
My hair naturally curls itself in beginning of winter regardless of what I am trying to get it to do, then goes crazy come spring! I always tells stylist that my hair changes its mind and does whatever it wants. If I try to embrace the curl it just goes limp, if I spend painstakingly long amounts of time on trying to straighten it, it waves and frizzes endlessly.
From everything I've read I have no idea what kind of hair I have because the top is flat and straighter while everything from top of my ears and back are curly ringlets when they feel like it. So sorta wavy, curly.
I definitely have overly porous hair from reading and testing from some of the blogs. I thought I had fine hair but the hair poofing east to west is a very apt description of my hair, so I'm leaning towards coarse.
Since the solution for coarse vs fine is basically opposite, I am at a loss of what to try first.
My hair is only shoulder length has taken years to get this long, it always requires more color or conditioner or any other product stylist use on it, so I assume moisture is my biggest problem. Now I just need help on how to get the moisture in!!
I'm really excited to have found this site and all assoiciated blogs. I don't think anyone can understand the support you need when you have curly hair like others who have it!!!
Thank you so much!
