Hey, so I was looking for some product for my hair (totally ignorant to what's going on up there), and came across this board and figured I would seek advice.

A little background, I'm mixed, Black dad, white mom. As a child I had curly hair, then started wearing it buzzed around middle school.

In 2007 on a dare I grew it out, and kinda liked it. The first pic below has been lightened to show the hair, sorry I don't have any better pics of it, but it's almost to the below stage currently.




but it got out of control so I chopped it off.





I'm in the process of growing it out again and I wanna have it as nice as possible but I don't know what to do with it. The fro got lots of attention, but I don't want it that big again, and braids don't tend to stay in my hair (I don't know why).

It mats to my head at night, and I don't know what kind of shampoo or conditioner I should be using. Also not sure of what type of hair I'm working with.

HELP!!

You could do the same thing you did in the second picture but when it grows out just don't comb it and don't pick it.
In the second picture your hair is amazing. I wish mine looked like that. Welcome to the site!
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Conditioners: Curl Junkie Beauticurls Strengthening Conditioner,
Deep condish: Curl Junkie Curl Rehab
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.
Every day is a gift
Your hair is AWESOME!!

Hey man! Your hair looks great. As far as types go, I would probably say maybe like 3c/4a ish? Obviously, it's not an exact science lol. When I started growing out my hair I found TRESemme Natural to be god send. Also, Aussie Moist, particularly if your hair is both thick and curly.

Your hair might not hold styles because despite the amount of hair you have it may be relatively fine. Mine is similar. Good luck!

I use the Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner as a leave in:-) It works great for me, as a leave in, or a normal conditioner, I even use it to detangle in the shower. Good luck with your hair journey!:-)
Agreed. The Nourishing Moisture is a staple product for me!
