Hi! I think your hair has the potential! It just needs more moisture! Try using conditioner to detangle and moisturize your hair, and then rake in a styler (gel or a curl cream, but I think gel would be better!) As for products, I use Tresemme Naturals Conditioner, and any silicone free, alcohol free gel that I may have on hand. But what works for me may not work for you. I hope I helped some. If you have any other questions, just post here!

Youssef, moisture is definately the thing. For styling you might want to try Shea Moisture's Curling Soufflé. Rake a small amount of it to soaking wet hair after washing and run a wide tooth comb, Denman or Tangle Tweezer through. This would clump your curls. Then scrunch the excess water out with a t-shirt. CJ's CC cream and Aloe Fix gel might also work.

You have awesome hair!! From here, I'd say 3c. And these ladies are absolutely correct! Moisture is a MUST for curly hair- no matter the "type".

You've been given some great advice! Also, maybe try a shampoo that's not so harsh? A sulfate free shampoo isn't as drying on your curls. Some people even wash their hair with conditioner, but it isn't for everyone.

Also, after you wash/condition and add product to your hair, it's a good idea not to touch it until fully dry. That'll keep it from getting frizzy.
