Hi! I'm new here and could use some help. My hair is probably a 3A and I'm finally learning how to style it properly. Some days it seems I should be twisting (or skip curl) or not sure the term away from my face, and other days towards. Problem is that I feel like it should be obvious, but it isn't. Also, some days the curl holds really well while other days it doesn't, and I don't do anything different.
Do you curl is towards your face on both sides? Then what about the back? Which direction do you do it in?

I have young kids and not too much time to play around with it. Any help would be great!
