Default Needing some help (3C/3B)

Hello. I am new here and this is my first post so yay! But I am in need of serious advice. I don't have a hair regimen that I do. I kind of just wash here, condition there when I feel like my hair needs it. I wear my hair in buns a lot because I have to for my job, so it gets dry really fast. I now try and put in some leave in conditioner before I put my hair in a bun so it's not so dry and hard. I have two different kinds of conditioner (a regular and a deep conditioner) and then I mix some conditioner and some water for a leave in. But this is besides the point. I'm pretty sure I am a 3C with some 3B mixed up in there but my hair is psycho and it's not even. Like the top layer is longer than the rest of my hair and it looks weird when I try to wear it down so I don't wear it down almost ever (so 99.9% of the time my hair is up in a bun or something). The top layer has like the 3B curls and then the rest is like 3C so it curls up more but it makes my hair look so uneven (but it is even when I straighten it so I don't know) and I don't know how to fix it! I want to wear my hair down so bad but it just looks horrible. So I guess I'm asking on advice on what products I can try so I can get into a regimen and what maybe I can do to make my hair more even looking so I can wear it down. Oh and frizz! WTF! Frizz is my enemy. No matter what I do, what product I use, the frizz doesn't go away! Okay, I'm done with my rant. I think. Any help is appreciated!

I have the same type of hair. I relaxed mine for a while, straightening it daily. I then chose to return natural. My go to products are "motions hair oil moisturizer", "lusters s curl", "beautiful textures"(I use the deep conditioner along with leave-in from this line) I deep condition usually once a week. Also to maintain moisture I'll do twist outs, and braid outs. I hope it helped! If you want any other info you can message me!! The second photo is a twist out!

I have 3b/c and this is what I do & use: I shampoo with 'nice & curly' 3-in-1 shampoo/conditioner/detangle. I deep condition twice a month with Eden body works jojoba deep condition. I use the Jane Carter leave in conditioner spray. The stylers maybe different for you because I deal with a lot of humidity. But I love curling pudding & curl creams this is what I do to combat frizz. After I either cowash or shampoo & put in my leave in, I put the Shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie on my ends then use the curling pudding or curling cream. All of the products I use will wash or cowash right out. The curl cream & smoothie will rinse right out. Hope this helps.

I have the nice & curly curling pudding & Jane Carter curling cream. The curling cream I only use on the weekends when I go to church because it keeps my hair from looking wild. The curling pudding is more like my daily styler along with the SM curl smoothie or milk.

Welcome! Choose your products based on your hair properties and humidity/ dew points. Does it have to be tight buns or can you do other types of up dos? You might consider having a curly specialist haircut to work with the two different curl patterns.

Where do you get nice and curly? Do you wet your hair daily,?, or how do you reserve your wash and go's?

They have to be buns where no hair is sticking out, so yeah, kind of tight. Curly specialist haircut? What's that? I had to chop like 5 inches off because I had to have short hair so I don't have layers like I has before. Before, my curls were a lot more loose and easier to manage and since I cut it over a year ago, my curls have bunched up and become uneven and whatnot and won't even pass my shoulders (my hair straight before I cut it and my hair straight now is the same length but curly it's a lot shorter now than before)
