Hi! I'm new too. 31 and also having trouble with type. I am, I think, a 23-3a...my (very fine and soft) hair goes from tight waves to loose curls. I recently quit using my flatiron and am learning to take care of my hair. I want to bounce up the curls, and minimize frizz and crunch. I hope we learn some great tops for rocking our waves and curls!
