Thank you Firefox7275 and chloe92us! There is so much information out there. I think I need to stick it out a bit longer to see results!
My hair is indeed very dry but I also tend to run my hands through it a lot to give it volume (flat on top). However, going to see a curly hair specialist this week so I'm excited.

Oh and I love the idea of coconut oil and honey in hair...will give the treatment a try!

Thank you again!!
