Default Hi everyone !!!

Hi , Well I am new to having my hair natural and I recently did my big chop just a few days ago and I have to say that I love it !!! Only problem is ;that I find my hair to be really dry I dont know if I'm not using the right products or what! I think my hair type is a mixed of 4A and 4B I dont really know, so If you guys had any suggestions on products I shoud try, I would sure apperciate it. Thanx

Welcome and congratulations on your big chop! If you were using products with silicones, maybe a clarifying shampoo followed by a deep treat. Condition as much as you can and leave some in. Deep condition too. It's amazing to me how much moisture curly/coily/kinky hair needs.

Castor oil and aloe vera gel are good
Flaxseed gel
butter products (on wet and dry hair)
A good moisturizing co-wash Generic Matrix Conditoning balm (at Sally's)
Good deep treatment (and dry hair moisturizer): Jessicurl Weekly Deep treatment. Just use a dollop on dry hair.

Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.
Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
