No Idea what to do

I've been on the website here for around 2 weeks and I have read the starting off forums but my hair still lacks in definition is dry and dead, I have straight ends and a "inverted bob" I believe as you can see in my picture. I really need help I want to cut my straighter ends off. my twin sister and I got a haircut around the same time(we have straightened our hair both once a year since we were 11 or 12, we are 15 now) and her curls are way nicer than mine. I have no idea what to do or what products to do. I just want to cut all of it off! its so frustrating!!
help me please!

I think it'll look fine if you just cut off the straight parts. I'm just imagining it in my head as drawing a line right across the area you want to cut. Shoot you could probably do it yourself .

p.s your english is really good.

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494

Yeah give sealing a try! And for now, ignore what your mother is saying about your hair...lol! Once you lose the straight ends, your hair will look, feel and be healthier!

Good luck!

It's up to you do decide how often you need to wet and when. Just make sure that you moisturize and/or seal after you wet your hair.
