Hullo, I have 3c type curly kinky hair and honestly it makes me so self conscious. Ever since I was little I've worn my hair in a ponytail. I hate it so much. I see other girls at my school and I wish I could style my hair another way. I've searched online for years but all I ever see is either afros or straightened hair. I also hate wearing my hair down because after it dries, it gets very very poofy and tangled and i hate the feeling of it on my neck and and head in general. I have also gotten my hair straightened before but my father won't let me straighten it any longer because he doesn't want my hair being damaged. Honestly any kind of tips for preventing poofing or any type of hair styles would be so nice! I'm tired of my hair making me feel uncomfortable and ugly.
