My name is Ericka. i recently registered to naturally curly and i'm lobing the site already!
If anything i would just really like some tips! I stopped getting relaxers close to the end of December of 2011. A few weeks ago i finally got ALL of my relaxed ends cut !! I was soo happy haha
& now comes the real test, i have noo idea what im doing. lol, i just jumped into being natural because its better for our type hair. and i think my hair type is 4A or 4B ... i can't tell? I KNOW for sure it isnt 4c. i shall put up pictures, but theyre probably not that good, i couldnt get my full head well :/
Well as most of you know! type 4 hair is very dry, which comes to my next question. how the freakity freak do i keep it moisturizeD? hahaha. i don't really have a regimen as of yet, im firguring that out right now. my hair stylist told me i should wash my hair every 2 weeks though, but how do i keep it moist in between? i use coconut oil, water, and sometimes cantu oil. i co-wash maybe every 3-4 days? but when i do i usually just seal it with the coconut oil, i guess it does something? i cant tell since my hair is like a vaacum -_-
When i first started, i washed my hair every other day, and conditioned it. then i started lessening the shampooing to just once a week. The products i use are, Mixed chicks shampoo and the ocnditioner, coconut oil, cantu hair and scalp oil, taliah waajid curl cream (WORKS wonders!!), and water. Should i try different products? If so pleaseee suggest some really good ones in your opinion. Oh and for the curls, i wanna try kinky curly (heard it was one of the best) but its so darned expensive, i just wanna know is it really GOOD before i spend money on it?
