If you do decide to try it, I've heard coarse haired curlies have the best luck with very occasional doses of keratin proteins or silk proteins. Start light and go heavier if you need to, or repeat the light dose for additional protein if the first dose goes well. Good luck.
^this.

My hair:

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
