I am trying to embrace my natural curls/waves (I don't really know which) after a lifetime of buns and flat irons. Growing up, my mother would always tell me that my hair looked awful naturally and that I should "do something about it"
Needless to say, I had low self esteem, most especially in regards to my hair, but now that I'm going to college, I decided I need to embrace my natural beauty
The problem is, I am not sure what my hair type is and what products to use. Here is a picture of my hair
I think it might be 2a or 2b... If you can't tell in the picture, my hair is very fine and I have a modest amount of it, no lion's mane or anything. When I air dry without scrunching it a bit with my hands, it looks sort of crazy with some straight pieces and some majorly curly bits if that helps!
I am currently using the following products: L'Oreal Ever Curl Shampoo + Conditioner, Ever Curl Silk and Gloss Dual Oil (as a leave in/shine enchancer), and Organix Moroccan Oil Curling Perfection Cream. My waves turn out like the picture shows.
What curl type do you think I am? Also, do you have any tips on styling (I prefer air drying) and how to get a bit more volume?
