#1: How to get my natural curls into an afro without gel?
OK, I have like mostly s shaped curls with some o shaped curls (I guess I'm a 4a, I don't know I don't care) but when my hair is wet my curls and kinks are very defined but as soon as my hair drys my curls gone unless I put gel in my hair. I absolutely LOVEEE AND ADORE!!!!! AFROS!!! They are beautiful to me. I also LOVE my hair texture. And i really want to do like a curly fro that defines my curls without hanging like a wash and go. Every time i try it doesn't work. When i try to do it, before my hair drys I completely coat it with Shea mositure curl in ehancing smoothie. But it leaves my hair sorta kinda defined depending on what my hair wants to do. But lately it hasn't been working at all and I'm not sure why. I can achieve the look I'm talking about when I do a braid out on a twist out but my hair looks 3a-3b ( my profile pic) but I don't want it be that curl pattern ( mostly because I HATE when ignorant kids my school tell me I never knew you had good hair) I want my natural curls to pop while rocking a fro. Can someone help please or give me some advice. ( I'm not trolling I am new here and I see people on here snap at people who ask questions about texture or whatever and sorry if its so long i just want to give as much info as possible so you guys can help me)
