Hi everyone! I'm new here, but not to natural hair. I've been natural for close to 10 years, and still learning about it!
Hi everyone!! I am a new transitioner from MS! My last relaxer was July 10th and I have been transitioning for 5mths so far!I plan to transition for a year to a year & 1/2 and cut off the relaxed ends a little at a time. I am very excited about this journey and can't wait until I have a head full of natural hair! I enjoy talking about the process, styles, products and all things natural with others and look forward to sharing my journey with you all and watching the journey of others!
Hi All. I just signed up a minute ago. This is how new I am... my next relaxer appointment should be next Thursday, but I canceled it yesterday. I'm going for it. Yikes.

So I've been reading all the post and doing my homework, and I know the first thing I need to do walking away from the heat tools. We'll see.

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

Hi all! I am new to the forum, but I have been coming to the site for some time now.

I'm natural, I have been for 1 year and 2 months. I am type 4a, with 3c in the back. I transitioned for 8 months. I have a pretty set regimen, but I have yarn braids in now as my protective style. I'll be doing protective styles throughout the winter. I have a (natural) hair blog, it's mostly documenting my growth, styles, and products I have tried, you can check out if you want. Beautiful Kinks

Anyway, I just wanted to say hello!
Hi, I am a lurker turned out a member now
2c / 3a type midback length, layered. Hope to learn how to deal with this!
I am writting to ask what products I should start with to help my hair I use to perm it but I have stopped because of the chemicals, I would like to just go natural now I am 56yrs what is your recommendations for this process, according to the
hair type I am a 3-a? But it could be because of the chemicals I have been without a perm now for about 2 months.

Any suggestions would be greatly apprecieated.
Hi All!

I'm a new member although I've visited the site numerous times. I was given a few referrals to join and thought I had joined. But I guess not. Well, I'm a 2 year (Sophomore) natural. I love it. By far one the 10 best things ever. I'm learning all the time and enjoying getting to know my hair again and again. I'd say my hair falls in a wide range of curl patterns, primarily it's softest texture is from ears to the nape of my neck. I'd classify it primarily as 3.

My favorite time is wash time. I love water now, as it was the frenemy during my creamy crack days. I like to keep it simple. The less I touch my hair the happier it is. I've tried and tested many products from high end to low. I prefer the cheaper as better instead of giving huge markets my endorsement for free. I can style my hair for under $5 so I know that if I'm going to invest $100 it better not require anything more than what the package promises.

I'm going to take some time and tread the space here, getting more familiar. But in the meantime and in between time, thanks for the place and I'll catch in coils!

Hello everyone,
I am new to curltalk but have been really interested in joining in on the various conversations. I have also been busy coming up with my own line of products and would like to start introducing them out to more people. The product line is called The Love of People, which are all natural based hair products. You can view our site at theloveofpeople.com. I have taken alot of the various comments from people who have used our products and that I have viewed on various videos and blogs into consideration when coming up with this line and I hope you all will try and enjoy.
Hi, I'm K. Kurl, aka Kelly from Yreka, CA. I've been a member here when I was in high school. Then I tried to join again later and it wouldn't let me. Finally I'm back and my hair and I are glad!
Hi, I'm Lindsay from Oklahoma. I have been living the curly-girl life since my hair turned curly 10 years ago, but I'm ready to take the next step and enhance my curls. I think I'm a 3b, but I'm not positive. I do not cut or trim my hair. I'm looking to make my curls more healthy and uniform.
Hi all! I'm Anne, my hair is 3b. I'm not no-poo, but I'm no silicones and I love very very much coco oil
Only one quarter of my post was posted, how come?!
Anyway, I've known naturallycurly for more than a year, I tried no poo for 1,5 a year and 8 months ago resigned from no-poo. No-cones+coco oil works much better for me!
hi im new to nc i have been natural for about 4 years and each day im learning more and more about natural hair...
Hi all,

I've been transitioning now unofficially for 10 months and officially for 5mos. I am planning on BC'ing on my 1yr anni post relaxer towards the end of Feb or beginning of March. I'm very excited and since getting started on this journey, I've become completely obsessed with hair and a total PJ

Type: 4a Fine Texture
CG since 2008 - Life long natural
Holy Grails
Co-wash: v05 Moisture Milks

Hi! I'm Ana and I'm Portuguese. Been a lurker for some time and finally decided to become a member.

I think my hair might be 2c/3a (most likely 2c), it has normal porosity and normal elasticity. I don't know whether my hair is thick, or it's fine and i just have a lot of it ahah.

I've been using a lot of silicones on my hair, with poor results, so I am more than willing to go CG. Actually, I'm going for a haircut today, have some layers done and get rid of split ends to start the process.
Happy New Year all,

My name's Wunmi and I just turned a year natural - love it!

this is my first time actually posting to a 'hair board' but was encouraged by the thought of the sea of information that is available on such sites.

I live in England, UK and have got my 4b? hair down to a T during the summer months (feels and looks great), but can not seem to keep my hair moisturized in the Winter. During the summer I add a tiny about of glycerin under my styling products, but find in winter this technique seems to give me alot more shrinkage and my hair feels dryer.

HELPPP!!!

Hi all i have a been to this site off and on for awhile but recently started lurking on these boards. Im pretty sure i have 4b hair..even though i just noticed 4c hair..so maybe im some of that too..its kinky thats all i know lol
Anyway, I cut my hair short last year after years of braids, relaxers, and weaves which resulted in major damage so i chopped it off...but I didnt really know how to take care of it properly, so i steady relied on products packed with mineral oil and cones to make my hair "behave" which didnt turn out too good, As a result i hated my hair so much i gave up and went to wigs and then weaves to cover up the damage.. but recently i have seen youtube videos and blogs of women just like me growing healthy beautiful kinky hair and if they can do it..SO CAN I! So im on a mission to take care of my hair the right way. I already have learned so much from this site and the ladies here there is so much to learn.
I can honestly say that i am SO EXCITED to start my hair care journey this year
.... its great to meet you all
