My texture is half 3b and half 3c, VERY thick and some parts are coarse while others are very fine. My mom is French, and Irish and my dad is African American. So yeah I'm pretty much black and white...haha. I'm on CG method and I use Herbal Essence Hello Hydration conditioner for my co wash and L'Oreal Vive Pro Nutrigloss the one in the pink bottle for my leave in, and set me up or tottaly twisted get, i also love Fantasia but it can make white patches or flakes if i'm not careful. Whoah, is that your natural hair color its gorgeous! and your eyes look blue from one picture. I want to experiment with highlights but my mom is not for that at all and my dad thinks I'm crazy when I say I want them.

I have very light highlights in my hair but the reason its so light in those pictures is because the sun highlights my hair naturally too. I always dye it back to dark brown but the dang sun keeps highlighting it (I'm not a huge fan but whatever) Everyone always compliments me though so I would say go for it if you like it! But I'd recommend to start off very slow by adding only a few to the crown of your head and make sure they are no more than 3 shades lighter than ur natural. I have a feeling the sun may end up lightening them once u've had them for a while . As far as any reccomendations I would definitely say you should try the Suave Aloe or Coconut conditioner and see how it works for you (it's super cheap so you can use a ton at a time). And using the CK after a rinse out my conditioner in the shower while its still soaking really helps control the frizz! I'm not sure if the Elucence Elixir is really making any difference yet but I will keep you posted. Love the Elucence poo though and its very affordable!

Hair Type: 3b
Using: Elucence MBC (as leave-in now) & poo, Suave Aloe and/or Coconut CO, CK, Elucence Elixir, Ouidad Tress FX gel.
Considering: KCCC, KCKT, KBB

It has grown TREMENDOUSLY; I'm wearing it straight as of right now, and it comes right below my chin.
Hey guys! So, I just made my first purchase from curlmart and started using new product so I took some pictures to share with everyone. Pretty sure I'm a 3b as well. Everyone has such lovely curls!

Sorry, I just got my haircut, and I am so excited! I LOVE my curls!!!

I have never loved my curls like I do today. I have done everything to my curls, and I have finally figured out that it is best to go with the curl than fight it. I am so excited! Sorry y'all.

In everything give thanks, for this is the will of God concerning you.
Three months lurking here, going CG and a decent "growing it out" hair cut have left me with happy curls coming back finally! Have you ever seen thinner, finer 3B hair? But my bangs - boy do they have root curl.

I am so happy to have found this board and been inspired by all of you. Thank you.

"when I sleep, my curls crush flat, like a slinky that's slopped sideways"
Gone 'girly. Last 'poo 10/18/08
Current experiment is Co-Wash and Condition: V05 kiwi lime clarifying conditioner
Then KBB super silky, KCCC, then L'Oreal Melting Gel with a bit of GF Super Stiff mixed in.
Pre-toweling, post-toweling, pre-plop and post-plop. The jury is not out on the plopping thing. I think my hair is too fine.
fine / non-porous / thin aka 3"abba" / oh so Fine / just barely ii
Here's my pics. I actually haven't gone CG yet...but I'm getting ready!

I love seeing everyone's beautiful curls. Makes it so much easier to learn to love mine - and believe me it hasn't always been easy
