In the teal line just above the pink "Post Reply" balloon, click on "User CP". On the new page, go down the left side of the page til you see the item (Edit Profile Picture, etc) you want to create/change. If you need more info, just ask.

Hiiiii there. obviously new here

I've always had big curly hair since I was a toddler, feels like its been a constant battle getting it to behave or be tame... =\

I also feel like its changed a bit since having two children? the curl doesn't have the same "perk" it used to.

Anyhow, found this site after googling out of desperation to find something to do with this mess! (aside from chopping it all off)

Hoping to find some useful info on here

Default new to the site

Hi everyone,
I just joined this site. I have been wearing my hair curly a lot these days which I never use to do. 8 months ago I got tired of the heat damage and decided not to flat iron my hair for a while. My hair is waist length now.

When I did decide to flat iron after a long time without using heat I realized just how beneficial wearing my hair curly was to the health of my hair. Now I wear my hair curly most of the time and I have learned so much about how to take care of curly hair and what products to use.

I hope to get to hip length and then just maintain that length.

Default Hi Friends!

I'm Alison, brand new to the site and pretty new to having curly hair. I got my last relaxer 11 months ago. I wound up transitioning without realizing I was. I just knew that I was tired of being on the crack and what it was doing to my hair. I did a chop of sorts in April of this year. I had planned to just keep transitioning for a year but I got annoyed with my straight ends and decided to get rid of most of it in the back and keep my length on top. It's been slowly getting cut away since then.

I think I'm a 4a with some serious 3c tendencies. I have crazy 3b pieces in there too which makes no sense to me, I think you can kind of see it in my picture.

I'm excited to keep on this natural hair journey, I love being able to have curly, straight, wavy!

Later gators!

Hi everyone!
I'm new here and ready to share and learn. I've been relaxed most of my life. I decided to go natural about three years ago. I lasted about ten months, got frustrated and went back to relaxing. Now that I see where I went wrong I'm ready to try again. 4c hair is some delicate stuff!

Welcome Unicurl! 4c hair most certainly is quite delicate, and for all of us on here, no matter the hair type, it's all trial and error. However I am glad that you are planning to give it another go. Just test products and find out what makes your hair feel and look good! Some products work wonderful for others while for you it may be crap and vice versa. Ask questions, read info found on here/Naturallycurly.com, and check out videos on YouTube. Happy "naptural" hair journey!

Hey everyone, I'm new here as well (just discovered this site while googling natural hair care communities) and I love it already. I've been naturally since the beginning of 2011 and have fully transitioned from having relaxed hair for four years without doing a bc. I just started my healthy hair journey this month and feel there is so much for me to learn. I just figured out an effective way for me to detangle my hair a week ago, and I've been blogging about my progress so far.

Default New Too

Hello,
I have a TWA. My hair became badly heat damaged from flat ironing so I decided no more heat. I cut the heat damaged hair and I have been a no heat natural for 4 months now.
I'm not exactly sure what hair type I am but I would say something close to 4c Iím not so sure, the top front of my hair didn't get the memo and is a totally different texture maybe 4a or 3c Iím not sure. None-the-less Happy to be here, have already gotten so much info from the site.

Hello Everyone!

My name is Courtney and I'm a college freshman who cut her hair off a week before school started. It's been almost three months since I big chopped.

I have no idea what my curl type is. My hair has loose, very defined curls that have some shrinkage to them. Also my scalp is very dry due to the eczema I have. I'm hoping to learn about products I can use to keep reduce shrinkage and to keep my scalp from having eczema flare ups.

Default Hulloh Everyone!

Hi everyone.

You know, I've actually created this account about a year or two ago for some guidance with my newly big chopped hair. Sadly I never had the chance to. Now, I'm almost three years perm-free!(And still have no real idea what 4Type I am.) It's been an awesome journey full of ups and downs, and now I'm back!

And my hair is as weird as ever.

Wish you all the best with your hair journeys!

Unhappy First Post

I'm new here and I am wondering about transitioning back to natural. This has helped me a lot, Thank you! If I continue this journey, it will be a very interesting and challenging one. So I am asking for all the advice and encouragement I can get.

Default New here

I'm Rachel, and I'm new! Been reading the website and information for about a month. I just started CG method in October and I'm trying to figure this all out.
My hair is 2c, I think...high porosity, medium thickness, highlighted a few weeks ago. It's curly/wavy on the very top layer, and loose big ringlets on the lower layers. Very frustrating. My husband is also curly, and we have a son who is as well (one who is not!). I'm looking to find the best routine and product to make this work! I would love any help!

Just wanted to stop in and say Hi. This is my first time posting at all since joining. I was mainly a lurker, but decided to make the leap to posting. I just went fully natural a few months ago, and I'm still learning.
