Hi for anyone who knows curly hair I NEED YOUR HELP ASAP. I live in NYC where it is pretty humid, but I am moving to Seattle, Washington where not only is it extremely humid but it rains all of the time. As it is I have learned and have been taught to hate my hair. I hate taking pictures with my curly hair because I feel ugly. My hair is between 3a and 3b. Everyone else around me seems to think that pin straight his is beautiful and curly hair just looks disgusting and unwanted. For a while i used flat iron after flat iron and would blow dry my hair straight everyday but I became very upset that my hair was becoming damaged and dry. When I have kept my hair curly, I have LITERALLY USED every mousse and gel from the drug store to help control my frizz and ugliness, but none of it works. I am truly desperate to find products to help tame my frizz and calm down my hair. ANY SUGGESTIONS would be greatly appreciated
Also if anyone could give their opinion about Ouidad CLimate Control Gel that would be great
