Default New here, new to curly hair

Hi, everyone!

I'm Oats. I'm a 23-year-old, African American girl, transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. Before I started my transition, I had no idea what my hair was like. I've always admired and wanted curly hair--my best friend used to say "I bet your hair is curly." I didn't assume so. Lo and behold, I stop getting a relaxer, and these cute little ringlets are growing out of my head!

I think I'm a 3c/4a mix, but don't really know the difference. (I don't really like Andre's typing, but...) A small wavy section in the back (I think).

I'm excited to meet and talk with all you different types of curlies, and to get to know my hair for the first time! I recently joined another forum, so if you saw someone named Oats there too...chances are, it's me

Take care,

Oats
