Hi,

I'm super new to this forum and I'm hoping I gain new knowledge about natural hair because I am COMPLETELY LOST! Well, even that is an understatement.

Hoping to find my way naturally...... LYLAS...

Hi Crislynluv & welcome. I too am new to Natrually Curly and just joined today. I have been natural for over 20 years. Based on my experiences I felt compelled to respond to your post. You will probably be given lots of recommendations from people and will come across many different products and techniques to use. Please keep in mind that everyone's hair is different. What works for one person may not work the same for another. Our hair also changes with the seasons, it changes in different climates and it changes as we 'mature' . You will probably need to try different products and techniques at different times and under different circumstances. Most importantly, I encourage you to have patience. It took me 18 years to figure out that I should stay away from products that contain oils as they negatively effect my skin and scalp. Become familiar with your hair in its natural state and in getting the results that you want. I wish you a happy journey!! I hope this helps. Peace.

Hey Natural beauties!!! I am new to NC and I must say I just love this site! When deciding to go natural I googled different sites and blogs that had info on transitioning and this site by far was the best! After reading several threads on how to care for natural hair after the BC and just in general, I was pumped!! I BCed in July and I literally shaved it all off bald! I discovered I am a 4b and I have about 1 1/2 of new natural hair that is gorgeously curling....LOVE IT!!!

Hello, all,
Greetings from Lawrenceville, Ga.
I am newly natural and currently wearing a TWA.

My first question is what is a good leave in conditioner to use on 3c/4a hair? I LOVE how my hair looks wet...but when it dries I dont like the shrinkage and it becomes dry...

It will curl pretty much on its own but I want something that will keep my curls loose and moisturized.. I have tried Kinky Curling cream and Fantasia gel. and I have to admit I like the Fantasia gel better, although I know it may contain some ingredients that arent so good for me..But I like the curl pattern it gives better than KCCC. Yet I still want something that will keep my hair from shrinking so much..

Thanks,

My name is Nys and I just figured out how to post something lol (took me about an hr). I have been natural for 11yrs now and quite honestly there weren't forums like this or blogs to help a sista out during that time lol.

I would always have it "ovaled" in the back and angled in the front with no layers - which worked well for me. About two months ago I whacked five inches off in said cut style - and it was nice - so nice in fact that last week I got overly brave & tried layers. BIG MISTAKE. The top layers come to my shoulders which is really short for me, and the rest tapers down into a V shape.

I got at AyurNatural Beauty (Ekua is the greatest!) . Long story short, I am SO hooked! For the first time in several months, my hair is really flourishing- getting stronger, healther (and longer) with each passing day!

Default New to Naturally Curly

Hello everyone.
I am new to the site and new to this entire process. I am transitioning and it has been a month. I'm excited and scared all rolled up into one. I've seen numerous videos and products and it is all overwhelming. I wish I could tell you my hair type, but, I dont know it yet. BTW, I live in Houston, Texas, so humidity will be a problem year round....I look forward to reading and getting familiar with this site.

Hi, my name is Nikki and I am new to the forum, but have used this site for information for a few months. I have naturally curly hair and am somewhere between a 2b & 3a. I have colored my own hair for years, but had a recent color disaster. 3 days ago, I had my stylist strip the bad color and follow up with a fresh color and new highlights. She did some sort of toners in between. I left with wet hair because I had been there for almost 4 hours and was ready to go home. My hair looked kind of weird,
