Default I need someone to come teach me how to style my hair!

It looks awful. I've been CG for a few years and it was ok for awhile but it has gotten bad. The curls are stringy and undefined, and there is mucho frizz. Has anyone gotten a professional to come to their house to teach them how to deal with their hair? I try diffusing the curls and they look terrible so would love to have someone show me how to do it right. I really can't go to work with wet hair so letting it air dry is not really an option. And I would love to be able to blow-dry it straight every once in awhile but have never done it and have no clue how to. I'm in DC btw!

I don't know about anyone coming to your home, but most Deva certified stylists are knowledgable about CG-styling routines. While they will likely promote Deva products, you may pick up some styling method tips.

Even though ur protein sensitive you may need protein. It doesn't have to be heavy protein.
I would wash my hair with shampoo, add a mild protein snd top it off with a moisturizing conditioner. Even cg wash their hair sometime. U can se a no sulfate. Your hair is over conditioned. Hath.

Yup. Also, check youtube for blow drying/diffusing/styling tips.
