Hi,

At FB Hair Salon we pride ourselves on offering the highest level of hairdressing.

This can be challenging when you have clients that use rubbish shampoos and the can't quiet get the desired style because their hair is either lifeless or dull.

We found your article on silicons really useful as a resource for our customers.

It helps them understand why it's not only important to get their hair cut regularly but to also look after it at home with the appropriate shampoo and conditioner range.

Hi, textured-hair friends, and welcome to NaturallyCurly.com!

I've compiled a list of articles I think you'll find helpful! NaturallyCurly can be overwhelming, as we have 11 years of fabulous content to share with you.

Hopefully these links will help you on your journey to wavy-, curly- or kinky-haired nirvana!

[QUOTE=4c_ash;2067111]Hey All,

I'm a newbie. I've read through forum discussions for months now on the droid app and I've just gotten around to registering so that I can participate! I am doing the natural hair challenge of 2014 and I can't wait to see everyone's progress. My hair grow unevenly, but it grows so I'm not complaining.

In joining this online community, I hope to fine-tune my hair care regimen with the all of your help in addition to sharing my triumphs and struggles to assist whomever. I have kinky 4c hair, hardly ever know what to do with it. I big chopped down to half an inch in September 2011 and have been back and forth using countless products. I was a bit of a product junkie but it's $$ to keep up so I'm simple nowadays with a mist spray bottle of water, Glover's growth blends herbal, unrefined Shea Butter, Optimum Oil moisturizer,


Hi Ash,

At FB Hair Salon we have a lot of customers with hair similar to yours.

Can you tell me how you're going with Pantene Pro-V Relaxed and Natural Deep Conditioner?

We find Pantene to be the devils sporn when it comes to hair care. It gives you a soft hair feel after using but it's full of harsh chemicals that strip all the goodness out. Try something natural with aloe vera and coconut oil.

We're based in NZ so not sure about the brands you would see in your store. If you want to throw some names past us we'll have a look at their ingredients and let you know the pro's/ con's.
Cheers!
Hi,

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,

Hi,

Wishing you a big FB Hair Salon welcome.

Hi all. I am new to this site and found it quite informational. Where I live, there aren't many people with hair like mine, except for my sisters. I'm half caucasian and african american. I would say that my hair type falls under the 3c. I have a love/hate relationship with it. Some days it behaves, while other days I want to rip it out!! Now I don't use any expensive products and it seems to work ok. I *chuckles* use LA Looks gel and it has worked for me for a couple of years. I only brush my hair in the shower and I style it upside down and let it air dry. The thing that I hate the most is the shrinkage. It always looks like I have an A-line haircut because it is so curly in the back. Now do I just get it layered and have it really short in the front, so the back appears longer, or do I just really get an A-line cut??? So frustrated. I like it short....sometimes, but really prefer it longer, but it just seems to not grow. My hubby loves it short and poofy. Sorry for such a long post, but I know you girls know what I'm going through abd thought I can get some much needed advice. Thanks.

Hi everyone,

My name is Felicia, and I'm new to the site! I've come a few times for information, but I thought I'd actually register this time and start talking to people.

I received a flat-iron for my 13th birthday and straightened my hair every single morning for 7 years, until I lived in Wisconsin for the summer and it was too hot to bear. So for the last 3 years I have been au natural, and I love it. I am not completely sure what type of hair I have (but my guess is 3b), and I love my curls when my hair is short. But I'm trying to grow it out, and now may hair is giving me all sorts of trouble.

Just wanted to shout out and introduce myself. I'm sure you'll hear from me in some of the other forums. Thanks for putting together such a great site! It's such a relief to get curly help.

Felicia

I'm finally looking into what I need to keep up my curly crown. A friend of mine suggested this site about 6 months ago. Who knew there was so much info for the curly q's.

I believe I'm a 3b, but I'm sure I'll find out for sure...

Although Ive been natural a good two years, I need help taming my 4a, 4b, and 4c hair! I wore my hair in locs for a year and a few months so I'm still trying to find a routine for my loose natural hair. I need help!

Hello,

I'm new to this website and I don't know how to post a seperate forum. I was wondering if someone can help me. Growing up I had perfect curly hair, and for the past year or so my hair started thinning out and losing its curl. I'm not sure if it's because I have to keep my hair up in a bun all day since I'm in the military but I want to know what I can do to get my hair back to being curly? If anyone can help it'd greatly be appreciated.
Thank you !
Welcome everyone! I'm not new. Just wanted to reach out to greet you

Karen, first, to navigate the forums around here, go to the top of this (or any) thread page ... In the upper left hand corner, see the words, "CurlTalk". If you click on that link, you will be on a page that lists all the forums. Click on a forum you're interested in. For example, you might click on the forum we are in now ("Newbies info/introductions"). Click further to the right, on "Start Here" and you will end up right here on this thread again. ... So let's say you want to respond to this post I'm writing you. Then scroll to the bottom of this page and on your left, see the tab called "post reply" and click on it. After you type your message in the blank field, you can click on "Preview" or "Submit Reply" (both on the lower right). You don't necessarily have to fill in the "Title" field above the main field. You only have to do that if you're starting an actual thread. Note: if you want to quote someone, and then reply to their quote, just go to the post you want to respond to click on the pink "quote" button at the bottom/left side of their post. If you want to edit your own post (or God forbid, quote yourself), those commands are in pink on the bottom of the post you want to change.

You can find a lot of wonderful info about tending to your curls in this forum ... Just go to top of the page and click on "Newbues Info ... " and there are four threads at the top of the list ("stickies") to read. Good luck and enjoy!

Hey Everyone!,
I recently decided to switch from relaxers to au naturel, and I'm about 4 months into it. Although, I will admit I'm still pretty confused about what to do and how style my hair, (it's been getting harder recently since I'm easing myself into it by transitioning and whew.. the relaxed part and the natural part..) Anyway I'm not really sure what my hair type is but it does have different textures in different places. If anything I'm probably like a 3c/4a mix. Just general advice on what to do with this would help...

Other than that, I'd say go over to the Transitioners thread here on CurlTalk! Lots of good information! Keep your hair moisturized and detangled. It's better to do your hair care routine early (BEFORE a hairstyle starts looking busted) instead of doing DAMAGE CONTROL when you realize your hair may be breaking off or tangling. I know from experience *___*

Hope that helped!

Hi everyone!
I have recently decided to go on a natural hair journey. I have also decided to stop using direct heat on my hair. I have been transitioning for about 2 months now. I chose to join this website because I have questions about transitioning and I need advice from others that are transitioning or have transitioned to their natural hair. S
