Default Newbie here and a little confused. Pictures attached.

Hello everyone. Found this website over the weekend and have been obsessively reading it.

I was born with straight hair but my hair started changing texture around 11 years old. It turned wavy with slight curls & very frizzy. As I got older, the waves started turning to curls. Several years ago I was diagnosed with pcos and my hair started becoming dry & frizzy. So as of today I am looking for ways to improve my hair. My hair is thick, course, very frizzy, dry and has no shine. I believe I am considered 3b?

Thanks for any advise anyone can give.

Great curls!!! The one thing that has helped me the most with frizz and dryness has been the CG program!! Look at all the sticky's at the top of the forums for more info. Good luck and welcome

Wow. You have lovely hair. I can't wait to see it after you've been following a routine for a while. You are going to be like the princess in Brave!!

Lots of moisture. A good condish and a good leave in do wonders. Also read up on oils. You have to find which one you like best for your hair but there are tons of choices....jojoba, coconut, grapeseed, sweet almond, even castor oil. Its all a matter of finding the right products to add moisture. That helps with dryness. I struggle with it myself due to thyroid issues.

Wow thanks for the kind comments and advise. Now i'm just trying to decide what to go with. I've heard great things about the devacurl trial pack & kcnt & kccc. So not sure yet.
