I am new to this site... been checkin it out for about a week. I am excited about embracing my curls!! I've been fighting them for about 13 years, trying to be "straight". I've gone through phases of curly, and straight, short and long, and I've decided on long curls!!! YAY!! I've read the Curly Girl book and have decided to go no-poo...I've been in about a week now, and my curls are starting to reform (as the blow drying and ironing has taken some of the curl away
... I haven't figured out what type I am yet though?? I think a 2c maybe 3a...I'm black, both of my parents are black, my mom has "kinky" hair, and my fathers is more wavy and fine, I have a mix of the two...It is wavy when wet, definite "s" pattern, lays flat to my scalp (until it dries then... watch out!)when dry its a mix of waves and curls and some straight pieces (ugh), it used to be curly all over but I'm working back up to it I guess. I don't get relaxers, I have relaxed in the past from time to time.. last time over a year ago.. to "tame" my hair some..if that makes sense- I can blow dry and flat iron my hair straight without chemicals (if that helps in understanding texture and things).... any suggestions on my hair type? I've looked at photos on here and with the photos, and descriptions I figured 2c-3aish... PLEASE HELP
My boyfriend isn't too sure about it, I think he likes it straight,he compliments the curls from time to time but he rubbed them and asked when I was going to straighten it this morning..lol I haven't broken the curly news to him yet! I'm going full speed with it and I LOVE THIS SITE!!! Thinking about visiting one of the curlysalons listed in my area for a trim soon my ends are THREW!!! I had it colored about a year ago and I think it's worn out it's welcome, not to mention that technically I'm transitioning...so I'm thinkin I'll need a BC, cause some of my ends, and the very front of my hair WON'T curl
I'll be around checking out the site out regularly, any comments/ feedback..are welcome... I'll try to put some pictures of it up soon.
