My stepdaughter went through this about a year ago. It was a little embarrassing for her too, but she felt better after we talked. I agree a mother-daughter meeting is a good idea. Remember, your mom went through this too, and she understands what you're going through and can be a good source of information and support. I don't think its necessary to tell both parents if you're not comfortable - just your mom is fine, and probably more helpful anyway. It might be a little uncomfortable at first, but worth it. Your mom probably already suspects anyway, so don't worry about shocking her

My favorite brands are Curl Junkie, Darcy's Botanicals, As I Am, Curly Kinks and Shea Moisture. Also love sealing with oil and styling with jelly products.
