Well I am mixed with a whole lot of stuff and my hair type is 3b/3c and my hair is poofy and frizzy so what I do is in the shower detangle you hair while it is wet and when doing this use COLD WATER because it helps with the poofiness and the frizz alittle and use a wide-tooth comb to detangle you hair and then when you are finish DON'T DRY YOUR HAIR YET put in some leave-in conditioner or something will moisturize your hair and then you put in your styling products. What I use is gel from the new Pantene Pro-V Solutions the Curly series and the gel helps to defines your curls and to keep your hair not to poof and frizz. When your finish with your styling products you can dry your hair but DON'T USE A TOWEL use a old t-shirt, paper towel, or a microfiber towel when you drying your hair scrunch it and when you are finish with that you could either using a diffuser or what I like to do is let it air dry and then my hair is nice but this is what I do to my hair it may work for you but it may not but you could try it out. I hope I helped you with your problem bye!!!!!

My grandma would always tell me "you act like you have white girl hair. You don't. You have black hair, so you better start acting like it. She would do my hair everyday when I was younger. Gosh I was mad. Hated her saying that.
I guess we both struggle with our hair ):

I'm mixed too! Black and White = Nigerian (African) and English (British). I have 3c/4a/4b/4c hair. I consider that so unique. However, my brother, pretty much has just 4a. My brother can pass for a full white sometimes or a sorta, mixed guy, while I can pass for a full black most of the time, but Nigerians tell me that I have the hair of a white person. I laugh at that because my hair's like no one else's in my family and I've never seen a full white with hair like mine.

I had my hair relaxed during most of my life (wasn't born with a hair manual). I've been natural for about a year now

My hair gets dry and unruly from time to time, but I've learned how to work with my hair and I've been able to achieve great "naked" hair for some time now. (check out post on 'Naked Hair (G-rated)' on ♥ ❤ ❥ ❣ ❦ ❧SammyWithTheBigHair♥ ❤ ❥ ❣ ❦ ❧
I use only natural things on my hair.
Things I use: Olive Oil, Canola oil, rosemary oil, aloe vera gel, shea butter, mayonnaise, eggs, milk, bananas

Everything I use is 100% natural. I make most of them myself because then I'm sure what's in it and I'm sure nothing's added, it's pure, it's natural.

Things I avoid: Mineral oil (codename: Baby oil), heat (I'm a total, no hair driers, no straighteners, no curling irons, no flat irons, no hot combs...nada), sodium chloride

Growing plan: At least 6 inches longer in a year.
I know exactly how you feel
I'm mixed (mom is black dad is white both are German) and NO ONE knows my hair I've been straightening my hair almost twice a year since I was 12 (I'm fifteen now) and I've tried so many different products it's insane I can't use black hair care because it's too heavy and I can't use white hair care because it's not moisturizing enough I hope some can help because I need it

Oh, snap. I don't see no kind of 4-type lovin' here (unless it's in the form of 4A). But, that's OK. We've all got gorgeous hair.

I'm mixed (African American, Native American, French, Hispanic & "White American"/European), and, I've had the same problem.

My Mama (and her 3C/4A curls) always used to try and treat my hair like she did hers, only over exaggerated. I've been relaxed since I was 2 (15 now), so, since then, she's piled the grease into my hair.

But, my situation was switched from most of y'alls. Mixed as I am, I ended up with the kinky, 4B/4C, possibly a little 4A, hair (not that I'm complaining, love my kinks to death, though I'm just discovering them all over again) while my Mama (and Granny and Grandnana) all have more of the 3C, 4A hair.

So, it was interesting growing up. I've never really had a problem finding the right products until I decided to start transitioning, but, it was always like she was using too much grease and Pink Lotion on my hair - not because she was trying to treat it like she did her hair, but, because she didn't understand my hair (or how I ended up with it).
December 21, 2011 - Last Relaxer
April 1, 2012 - Transitioning Began
March 30, 2013 - Big Chopped

High Density. Medium-Low Porosity. Kinky. Shoulder Length.

*Excuse my Texas.

yes I am mixed as well, but race has nothing to do with people not knowing what to do with your hair. People just don't know what to do with curly hair period. Doesn't matter what your race is. But you've found the right place to be!
