Exclamation 3b/3c hair problems

So my hair is a mix between the two textures and for me my hair in basically unmanageable I would appreciate any tips, hair products, or whatever you offer.

Learn your hair properties: www.livecurlylivefree.com. this will help with products and hair styling techniques. As far as general tips, don't comb or brush hair while dry or drying. Apply styling products to sipping wet hair, use a gel and some leave in conditioner.

I'm also (mostly) a combo 3b/c. Feel free to peruse my posts at this site in case it might help. I also have a blog (Ringlet Fandango) and the link to it is in my signature below. More than anything, try and be patient. There's a good chance you'll come to love your hair by talking w/other curlies and continuing to read/learn about curly hair

Yeah, I have the same hair type. I'm half black and half Asian, so it's hard to figure out my hair. But, yesterday I read Curly Girl and it said that you should trim your hair. So I trimmed it, and the front goes to my collar bones and the back goes a little under the nape of my head. It looks horrible!!! When I put all my hair to my back... It just looks horrible...

I have the same hair type! I recommend lots of conditioner treseme naturals to detangle and smooth. I then put all my hair up while in the shower to do the rest of my routine. Then I let my hair down wash out all the conditioner and use SM restorative conditioner as a leave in(don't use too much or your hair won't have as much volume!). I use two styling products while I'm in the shower: SM coconut and hibiscus milk and garnier fructis pure clean gel. I split my hair in two and use a nickel size amount of each product in each half of my hair. I finger twist which only takes like 5 min( doesn't have to be perfect!) and then I diffuse when I get out of the shower. I have super soft and defined curls when I'm done! Hope this helps!

I find the tighter the curl pattern, the less it tolerates brushes and combs. I would comb through and detangle while conditioning hair, rinse, add moisturizer, and sealant with holding power. Notice I didn't mention combing or brushing after rinsing? That is because the extra combing and brushing can contribute to uncooperative hair. Good luck

I'm 3c-4a, just a little curlier that yours with a few kinks in there, but I can understand the 3c part. For 3c, what I do is while I'm washing/co-washing/just conditioning I detangle my hair then, rather than dry. I also rinse my hair with cold water to make it shiny. I also apply a hair moisturizer called 'Pink'. It leaves the hair super soft and keeps it moisturized all day. Plus it smells really good. It also lasts for a super long time, and only costs around $5 or less depending on where you get it. I highly recommend it for your hair type.

Wow I've never used Pink but I see it all the time, but I feel like it has mineral oil so i havent bought it.

Most hair moisturizers in a bottle form have and I cant use too much, but a little is enough.

If Pink is the samething I'm thinking about then my mom used to put it in my hair when I was younger. I never considered going back to it....I might have to give it a try!
