Try deva curl...look up a good hairdresser near you(look the review up here I found my much adored hairdresser from reviewers here) and make them your BFF lol. I would give deva curl a try cuz I was transitioning and I have 3bish mostly 3c hair and my hair LOVES it. It even adds some curl to your relaxed ends if you really scrunch it in. Good luck...you have the whole nc community behind you!!
