I have been going natural since June of 2010, but I been wearing a sew-in since then so I havent had to deal with my hair in its natural state. I decied this year (2012) that I was gonna start taking better care of my hair, so I took out the sew-in over the weekend and I discovered that after 19 months i still had perm in my hair and ALOT of split ends. My goal for my hair is GROWTH. I am at a crossroads and not sure which way to go.....

Ive deceided that I want to try the Curly Girl method but not sure where to start. Can someone please help me.
