Well...I'm a bit older than u...I think they know better now that to just touch my hair..lol

When I was ur age my family (mostly white) always loved my hair and wanted me to leave it curly. It was such a hassle to deal with cause is so super-duper curly it tangles so easy. I also didnt know how to deal with it then. I relaxed and straightened. I didn't leave it curly till like 27. Maybe pull away some when people go to touch ur hair...or say no..u'll mess it up.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.
