Default So confusedd..

Hi everyone! I have been following this board for a while but haven't posted anything recently.. however I find this site has been very helpful!
Well I have 3B curly hair and recently I've been so confused about what my hair needs! I have kind of ethnic hair- it's not too coarse and at the same time it is more fine than my other middle eastern friends with curly hair.. still gets frizzy but not coarse to the touch.

I don't know if my hair gets weighed down or what, but lately I put products in my hair and it instead of getting defined it just turns into a big poof when it's drying. It's like the products don't hold/work anymore and they used to before..I live in a area that is very cold/lots of snow so maybe it is the weather? I usually leave a leave-in with a gel, and low sulfate/non-sulfate shampoos and conditioners.
more recently I have been using the product combo in my description with the CK etc.

Any suggestions or help from you lovely curlies is much appreciated!

3A/3B curly , partially CG

Things that have worked:
Garnier Fructis Fortifying conditioner (leave in) +CK + Batia/Aleeza Gel Combo
-Raw African Shea Butter (a lifesaver!)

- Ouidad Curl Quencher Conditioner + Curl Quencher Gel

Still working to find a consistent routine though!

I'm having a similar problem. I think it is the weather for me. Every time it gets really cold, my hair doesn't want to cooperate. I need sulfates during that time (I've found it helps). Today my hair seems lifeless and frizzy. I wish I could recommend something, but I'm still trying to figure it out. My products are listed in my signature and those are my go to. As for routine, I still don't have any luck with that.

Some people use the LOC method (Leave In, Oil, Cream), maybe that might help? I would suggest an oil as a sealant, but my hair really doesn't like oil and is fine, so I'm not sure if that would be a helpful suggestion. Ahh, I'm really no help.

3B, fine, normal porosity, high density, medium width and length
Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals
Co-Wash: As I Am Coconut Co-Wash
Leave in Products: As I Am Leave-In, SM Smoothie/Milk
Air Dry

Looking for new products and methods to try!

I can't use low poos they dry out my hair dry hair will not form defined curls. You may need hydrating conditioners. Hydration helps me get defined curls no matter what i use.

I think your hair is very pretty! I second Curlicious's post. Perhaps you need a more moisturizing leave in? Is it possible you have build up? If you use products with silicone or heavy butters they can build up over time and will make your hair frizzy.
Mixture of fine and coarse, medium density, high porosity, and protein lovin' wavy. Very easily weighed down and over-conditioned.

Low poo: TJTTT, YTCucs, Suave Clarifying
Condish: GSAS, Tresemme Naturals, Jessicurl Aloeba
LI: KCKT, Tresemme Naturals
PT: IAgirl's PT
Styler: Experimenting with JCS WR and homemade FSG

Go Red WIngs!
