Hi, fellow curlies!
I am looking to learn more about how to care for my porous (from coloring/blowing out my hair to straighten it almost daily, yikes!) soft, ringlets. I am done beating my hair into straight submission, fighting the Southern humidity and summer rainy season! I'm Caucasian and have a family full of straight heads, so I've always wanted straight hair and have had plenty of help trying to get it that way--chemical relaxing and expensive blow flat irons have tried and failed to destroy my curl. Since my curls won't go away, I figure it's best to just go with 'em and learn to love them.
My main hair "issues" I've learned about after reading these boards are...
~porosity, from processing
~breakage of hair, at temples and all over (=halo of frizz!),
~flatness at my roots created by my long, heavy hair
~straight in the back/ringlets in front texture that never seems look consistently curly!
Hoping to find some answers without spending too much time on these boards, just because I have a lot of stuff going on IRL right now. Want to figure out these hair issues with the help of you ladies. Hoping to find a hair buddy to get product recs from.
Thank you for reading!
