Hi Girls!
As you can see, i'm new here and hope to make good friends and improve my hair as well.
I've been searching a lot, about my hair and products and got some doubts.

My hair is high porous. Its 2c and coarse. I was transitioning from shampoos with sulfates and parabens for no sulfates in about 3 months.

So now, I want to really use the right product.
I've been thinking of starting with deva curls products. Is it a good option?

I would REALLY apreciate any tips of products and hair care routine ^^

PS: what is really strange is that on top of my head the hair is coarse and high frizzy, On the bottom is smooth and fine. I tried the rinse with BS and ACV for 2 weeks but it doesn't seem as build up case. any suggestions?

Thanks Everyone =*
Hmm, If you have different textures from root to tip I would wonder about a few things...

...Product application: are you applying enough moisturizing and holding products to the roots as well as the ends.

...hair texture: as hair ages it may change in texture due to wear and tear. The strands may actually become finer. Also roots can be a bit unruly if constantly pulled into ponytails and such.

...breakage: roots may seem course simple because there is more hair there than the ends due to breakage.

Generic Hair Routine for Curlies:
Wash hair, focus on scalp. (I like to use KC Come Clean conditioning shampoo)
Condition hair, focus on ends but if roots are very course then give them some conditioner love too (I use KC Knot Today) oh, yeah, now is GREAT time to detangle.
Seal hair. Very important to seal in moisture esp if you have high porosity hair. (I use KC Curling Custard but they have a Spiraling Spritz that is a little lighter)
I wouldn't assume your hair is coarse, just because it's rough - it's probably just really damaged as it's high in porosity. Getting a hair analysis would be super helpful. Live Curly Live Free website has one or $20 which would be a good starting point.

DevaCurl products were great for me to start with, but I've tossed them to the side as I learned more about my hair along the way. Seems a lot of people tend to do this. Definitely a great place to start though.

Thanks girls!
I do put my hair a lot into ponytails, so it can be really damaged by now.
I want to start cowash my hair after I detox, but where I live is hard to see light conditioners as vo5 and suave naturals. There are some recipes of homemade conditioners for cowash?

You can do a search in the Recipes section to see if you can find any recipes. I'm not sure what you would use. You can cowash with pretty much any conditioner that's not heavy on emollients and oils.
