Default Ladies, I need some help (pics in the post)

Well, I just don't know what hair type I have

I know it is low porosity and normal width, but that's all

I'm really motivated to have healthy curls, but I guess I need help

Thanks in advance!

Welcome, Joronoko! It's impossible to tell hair type from a picture - so many factors come into play. If it's dry and damaged, it will look very different than if it's moisturized and healthy. My hair looks very different now than it did when I first came to this site. Once I learned the right products for my hair, the right styling techniques and the best drying methods, my curls became more defined, the frizz is minimal and it has bounce and spring to it that I never had earlier.

You will find tons of great tips and help on these boards. It can all be overwhelming at first but I promise that it will all fall into place if you stick with it. Here are some links that will help get you started:

Thank you girls
I've been reading a lot, but there's so much that I don't even know what to do.
Like, everytime I check products, I find some awesome and some ugly reviews, which just confuses me even more :/

I hear you! It can really be overwhelming at first. We've all been there. This link helped me a lot when I started: Live Curly Live Free - Curly Hair Basics and Curly Hair Tips, Styles & Products - NaturallyCurly
From there it's really trial and error. One of the mistakes I made when I first started was to try too much at once. I was using way too much of way too many products. Keep it simple and the pieces will fall into place.
