Default New here! Kind of intimidated! :D

Hello all! I am new here. My name is Sara.
I have struggled with my hair for most of my life. I used to just keep it short so I didn't have to deal with the curls, and then when I did grow it out long, I just straightened it. My hair has gone through a lot. I used to shampoo daily until awhile ago when I started cowashing, but I never stuck with it long. I was cowashing every day though and it made my hair feel icky.

Between straightening, shampooing, products and blowdrying, my hair has a lot of damaged parts. I'm hoping I can restore my hair to it's natural curliness.

I'm excited to find you guys! My hair type is a 2b/2c, it's very thin and fine. I have read a little bit on this site about some techniques and I have decided to go no-poo! I cowashed my hair yesterday and just rinsed it today, and I am currently plopping as I type! I was shocked at how many harmful chemicals are in the shampoo and conditioner brands that I use, so I am looking for some new ones. I've heard Shea Moisture is pretty good, and there is a coconut conditioner I am looking into getting.

I'm ready to finally embrace my curls and learn the proper way to take care of them! I am Polynesian, but I was adopted, so I have Poly hair and have NO idea how to take care of it. I'm hoping that changes here soon and I am hope you ladies can help me along my journey!

Here is a pic of my hair on a "good" hair day.

I hope I did that right, I'm not used to these forums!
If any of you are Polynesian and know what type of hair I am dealing with, I would LOVE to hear from you and get some tips!

Thanks ladies! I look forward to learning more from you !
