Yay!! My first post here

I'm Cris, I'm from Spain and I've been reading this forum silently for a year. So I have decided to do this big step at last
I have 3b/3c hair but I think when I was younger my hair was wilder than now. I've spent my entire adolescence wishing my hair weren't so big... and now that I'm finally proud of my hair it doesn't gets big xD

I'm so glad to be here and I'm so excited to share tips and techniques.
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

For example If you try to wash your hair every day and it freaks out -- STOP! and then try every 3 days or every week, tweaking everything until you can tell your hair feels great. Also, AUSSIE MOIST is my favorite conditioner. Saved my life lol

Good luck!

Hello everyone! I've been coming to this site for a while but just now found the forums. My hair has done a weird transition throughout my life. I had curls as a baby and toddler. Then my hair seemed to straighten out. However. after puberty it was curly from there on out, like it is today. However, since then I have learned to tame it most of the time. My major problem is just frizz and finding a product I like. It is hard because I don't want to spend so much money on something and have it not work. Anyways, I think I am a 3B on the chart. I am sure I will have many questions.

You're actually supposed to comb all of your hair during your transition. If you don't, the new growth will just get tangled, making the process a whole lot harder. Get in the habit of combing your hair only when it's wet and has a lot of slipper conditioner in it. Divide into several sections, and comb through each section: starting with the TIPS of your hair working your way up to the roots.

Hope that helps!

Am I in the right thread? Lol

Im new to this site! Well not new new, been browsing around for a while now but decided to join recently =]

I started the Curly Girl Method today and can't wait to see my hair transformation!
Hi everyone! I've been reading here for a few months now and after seeing amazing photos and good advice all over the boards, I finally decided to register. You all are so fantastic and supportive!

I have 3b curls, I'm 42 years old and I've loved my curls since I figured out how to take care of them when I was in college. I just recently started the CG method after chopping off most of my just below shoulder length hair. I thought it needed a drastic cut to bring back my coils, when it just needed no more silicone/sulfates and lots more moisture! Ah well, lesson learned. I'm growing it out again and loving how healthy it looks.

BTW, my 15 year old daughter is a curly girl, too. She's 2c/3a with gorgeous MBL locks.
3a, low to medium porosity,
CG since Dec 2012

Massive chop Nov 2012 and I'm missing my long curls! Wish I'd found the CG method before I cut it all off. Growing it out again .

Cleanser: Trader Joe's Refresh, Shea Moisture CoconutCurl & Shine
Cond.: Trader Joe's Refresh or Shea Moisture Shea Butter Restorative Cond.
Stylers: Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie + Shea Moisture Style Milk
Gel: Giovanni LA Natural, want to try Alba Botanica Strong Hold

Hair goal: MBL by Dec 2014
Hi everyone,I am unsure how to navigate this site, but have found some interesting information from what I could see. I started out today googling split ends and found you.
I am in Australia and am struggling with my hair. I think it is 3b from the description but still not certain.
I will keep on reading the previous posts
Thanks

Here are the articles we have on split ends >> Search Results
and here's a thread we have in the CurlTalk forum about split ends >> http://www.naturallycurly.com/curlta...iry-knots.html

If you can't figure out your curl pattern according to our Curl Pattern page, don't worry! It may take a while for you to get a feel for what your hair is capable of once it's healthy again.

Let me know how else I can help!

Thanks, my hubby prefers straight hair. I said I can't help what I was born with but it will take a while to get over 10 yrs of blow drying it straight out of my hair. When I do occasionally wear my hair natural work colleagues tell me I have let myself go
Hi!
I'm new here.

I've always had wavy/straight hair but unfortunately had to have chemo in 2011 so my hair has turned into.. I think it's 2C hair.

Anyway. I have absolutely nothing bad to say about curly hair except that my hair has only grown 5 inches since 2011 and I look like I have an afro of sorts.

I've been desperate to have keratin done on my hair or have it relaxed and I'm wondering if there are any girls that are either post chemo or had short curly hair that could show me some pictures of their relaxed or treated hair?

I cannot find anything that will show what my hair may look like if I were to get it relaxed and when it started to grow back curly.

Any help would be great, thanks!

Hello Everyone.
I just registered today. I've been looking into the curly girl method now for over a few years. But I've been really nervous about changing my hair care habits. I have finally reached my wits end and I am surrendering to the curly girl gods.

I'm having a hard time deciding which type my hair falls into. I'm anywhere between a 2c and a 3a. my hair is fine and long and it doesn't soak in water. my hair dries really fast as a matter of fact. i do not dye it or use products. i hardly brush it unless it's wet and even then i try not to because it dries so fast. And my hair is REALLY affected by the weather. it falls flat and sometimes even goes straight underneath my crown. i really hate when that happens.

I'm going to start the curly girl method this weekend. and i'm really looking forward to it. if you have any advice or think i should look at a specific forum please let me know. all help is greatly appreciated!
After lurking for a few months, decided to finally register. I've been using the CG method for about 3 months and have had some 'good' hair days and 'bad' hair days. Trying to figure out what my hair needs and the 'right' products. I have to say after giving up sulfates, my hair detangles so much easier and is not nearly as frizzy and poofy. My head has everything from 2b - 3a curls and hoping that I can coax my S waves to spiral more.

So glad I found this great resource!
2b,2c and 3a (coils at the ends and underlayer), fine, low porosity, dense, highlighted.

Still trying to find a hair routine that works
