Default Hi, I'm new, looking for advice

Hey everyone!
I'm so excited to find this website!! Ok, from the descriptions I think I'm a 3A.

My hair is really thick, soft and shiny. The curls are loose and spiral around one another on the top layer, but the bottom layers kinda fizzle out - in fact the layer of hair closest to my neck is almost completely straight. I mean I divide my hair up for even distrib. for all the products so it's not like I'm missing areas... (Does this mean I'm really in the 2's? Or maybe I am a double type??)

I know products are kinda a hit-or-miss, but I wanted to see if anyone with similar types could give light to somethign that was good. I'm kinda on a budget crunch but I'm open. Just wanna see what y'all know is out there.

Generally my problems revolve around wanting more curl definition and frizz control, but I really hate when my hair gets stiff.

Any advice is appreciated!

Hi there!

It's normal to have different hair types on the same head. I have some 3a and 3b curls. I have some hair underneath, near my neck also, that isn't as curly. I have lots of hair so you can't really see that layer unless it gets pulled forward, so I just don't worry about it.

Some of my favorite stuff is cheap! (Actually, probably all of it, I'm a cheapo ) I love Suave and VO5 conditioners, Creme of Nature shampoo (found in walmart and drugstores in the ethnic hair section), Suave Sculpting Gel, and honey. Yes, honey! It's great when I add it into my conditoner.

This board has some really great info!! I hope you enjoy your stay here.
3a/b, fine hair... with a mind of its own!

Your hair, it's everywhere. Screaming infidelities, taking its wear.

My hair is nearly straight underneath in the back, too. I use Jessicurl Gelebration spray there to increase the amount of curl.
