and did I mention CONDITIONER?
Only wash your hair with shampoo when you feel it need it. (gets itchy, build up, ect.)
and use lots of conditioner. use it in the shower, leave some in your hair, don't be afraid to get it wet either. Water is very good for your hair. Try different conditioners too. Some thick, some leave in, to find the one's that work for you, but it will take a bit of time. I sort of neglected my hair and it became dry and frizzy. I used lots of conditioner and made sure to keep it hydrated and detangled. it's not as nice as it used to be, but it's a lot better. Not as frizzy....cutting it probably helped XD
Anyway, it's your hair, not there's so it's not there decition. if you like it then nothing else matters. they don't have to deal with the stupid relaxers and breakage and crud.
good luck XD
