Unfortunately, I don't have curly friends to turn to. One of my good friends used to have 3b/3c curls like me but she traded that in for a straightener and now her natural hair is a 2 when she's too lazy to straighten her hair.
Of course there's my family. My mom has 3b curls and my brother and I have the same type of hair.
I'm okay with that though. The internet has been the biggest help in my hair journey and I get complimented a lot for my curls.
