Hello all! I'm kinda new to this site and just wanted some general advice. I've got a combination of 2c and 3a hair. The under layer has been bleached so I've got more waves there than actual curls. Does anyone have any advice for general care that isn't too expensive? I'm tight on money and can't spend much at a time. I'm just looking for some general products to look in to and styling techniques that'll help my hair look it's best with minimal work(: If needed, I can post a picture of what it looks like with gel and scrunching. Thanks in advance:3
Welcome. If you do a forum search for drug store products, you'll find a number of inexpensive products loved by curlies. You might also read up on the curly girl cg method, which generally involves using sulfate and silicone free products and using gentle care methods. Also, figuring out your hair's porosity and how fine or coarse your strands are, will help you choose products that are most likely to work on your hair.
2c/3a, dense, fairly coarse, normal porosity and elasticity, bsl curly, WL wet
Low poo: Giovanni 50 50
Co-wash: down under naturals, tresume naturals
RO: AOHR
LI: Giovanni Direct, Desert Essence curl cream
Stylers: kccc, HE smu, brhg
Oils: coconut, argan or evoo
I'm 2c\3a too. Dunno if we have similar hair properties or not, but I can tell you what works for me. I co-wash...I only shampoo about once a week? or whenever I feel like I need to. Instead of a leave in conditioner, I just put the conditioner that I co-wash with in. It works just as well, and it's one more product to cut off the list=) Then I scrunch in some type of oil. When my hair dries I scrunch in some gel. If I feel like my hair is getting dry I just do a mayonnaise hair mask. So yeah, that's pretty much all I do. I know it seems like you can only get good hair if you use the more expensive products, but I'm guessing I only spend 10$ a month on hair product and my hair isn't bad at all. Good luck!!

Check out this CG "starter kit" video. Its very helpful. Also I always reccommend natural products.

Hey I'm 2c/3a too! I actually make the majority of my beauty products! Its really cost effective and its safer for me because I have so many allergies. I use a super gentle cleanser for shampoo, its similar to Dr. Bronner's castile soap. I condition with Tressemme Naturals Radiant Volume conditioner, and then i style with homemade flax gel and fruit of the earth aloe vera. You can order everything you need on amazon for about $20 and it lasts quite a few months! Let me know if you have any questions.
