Transitioning and needs help?

So I've been straightening my hair with a flat iron for over 5 years and I'm ready to go back natural and I have not been able to find ANYTHING for my hair. So basically I'm at square one. I'm pretty sure my type is 3b but I'm not sure what the density and porosity is. Maybe i can get some help? My hair gets very dry and frizzy so Ive tried alot of things on my hair like the curls line (target brand) but that wasnt enough moisture. I've tried the suave naturals but that dries out my hair BADLY. ive also tried the beyond the zone noodle head which left my hair hard and crunchy, and ive tried the tresseme moisture line which left scabs in my scalp .. I have pictures that can show you how bad my hair looks when curly ... Lol help?

Have you considered your hair is heat damaged? because it looks very much so to me. If you have been flat ironing frequently for five years I don't think a pt is going to bring back the curl. Your ends look stringy almost straight. I say start transitioning and lay off the heat.

What products would you suggest? Trying to avoid the big chop.

Now I am very hesitant to say much about how to deal with two textures. As the hair grows you will find your "natural" hair's needs will be different from the heat damaged hair. My transition was four years ago and very short so I don't have much expertise. Sorry

When I had to go through a transitioning period after I chemically straightened my hair, I just cut the straight parts off bit by bit, took quite a few months. Since you probably only have heat damage, a really good conditioner and deep treatments will go a long way. One I really like is mixing olive oil and honey with conditioner, maybe an egg or a banana for protein. I usually DT after I've straightened with a flat iron to counteract the heat damage. Hope this helps!

What does DT mean? And I'll keep that in mind. I might end up getting alittle boy of a hair cut. Maybe that'll do something.
Ah, deep treatment.
