Hello everybody
I am Jaenelle of 15 years. After visiting blogs like curlynikky, tightlycurly, DPrincess28, etc., I have been inspired to stop relaxing my hair once and for all. I've always loved the curls in my regrowth, but it was hard to comb! Then I realised from said blogs that it was normal, and that I should stop trying to comb it - lol
I am 4 months in now, and I hope to have long curly hair like all of you beauties on here
Thank you and good luck <3

I have 3a hair, sometimes 2b hair, and I straighten it pretty often, but I've started to embrace my curls. Still in the learning process

Default brand new here

new to curly girl...

i've fought my curls my whole life, and have chemically relaxed and/or blown out my hair for over a decade - I'm a new mom and decided i don't have time/energy to fuss with my hair like that anymore.

So I'm going curly... little did I know that was more high maintenance than the blowing out every few days! I used lots of heat tools on my hair so it's damaged - badly... though I've always been good at using conditioner to 'wash' my hair, as a little girl i never liked how shampoo made my hair feel. my curls have loosened a lot, and range from 3a to 3c and are mid-back length. they are in desperate need of conditioning - spent last week with loads of coconut oil, hair milk, and ouidad deep treatment (all at different times not together!) in my hair. not liking the giant red poof ball, and hoping things settle down sooner than later!

that's me... bonzo the clown for now... hoping to turn the clown-do into cascading curls.

seriously considering henna/alma/cassia products to weigh my hair down a bit and smooth things out.

Good evening (or good morning/good afternoon, depending on when you read this).

My name is Emma. I am 23 and live in Liverpool, England. I have type 3a.3b hair, which is just above shoulder length. I have posted a separate thread with a full intro and photos of my hair growing out from pixie-cut length, I tend to ramble.

I hope to have a chance to interact with you lovely, friendly people soon enough. Best wishes.

How do I delete a thread?

I recently posted a thread that is not that much of a major contribution to a discussion.

No one has responded yet

Default No one seems to know

I have not had a relaxer since Sept. 2006 and now I would like to wear my hair in its natural texture(4a). The problem is I don't know what I'm doing and when I visit different salons they don't know what to do either. Then after a few minutes of going round and round I end up with a press and curl due to the fact that I don't trust them to do anything else . Please I need help! What should my next move be?

Still trying to figure out the site, although I have been reading up a lot on people's tips for hair care. I've been CG for about 3 years now, with some occasional lapses but I have embraced my curls after years of bad hair cuts and wind blown looks (not in a good way. lol). I think I'm a 3b, it's the closest I can see to my hair type. But I don't have much of it. Hoping to get some tips on how to have great curls WITH volume. Glad to be here.

Default Still confused

I've read so much and can't seem to keep track so I was hoping someone could clarify for me.
Are all clarifying shampoos ok to use (or do some have/need surfactants)? How often do do I use a clarifying shampoo?
If I co-wash, does the conditioner have surfactants? what kind of conditioner should I be using?
Can I use a sulfate free shampoo everytime I wash?
What about the styling products? What should they or shouldn't they have?
Is there such a thing as a curl enhancer for a wavy?
Thanks to any advice you can offer.
I'm desperate to get started.

I was born in NY but now live in Florida? I know.) and it feels so bulky when it is down and I always wind up putting it in a pony tail by the end of the day. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I hate it short so I have been growing it out for the past year. My hair gets so frizzy (did I mention I was born in NY but now live in Florida? I know.) and it feels so bulky when it is down and I always wind up putting it in a pony tail by the end of the day.
