Tight Curly and Wavy Hair
What can I do to loosen the curl? The curls are so tight and it always looks like it has no shape. Right now I am wearing a salt and pepper "Afro". I am trying to let it grow but it is driving me crazy!!!!!!

Umm.. I think you should appreciate your hair and work with it not against it, but that's probably not what you want to hear since you posted this.

Anyways, here's what I heard works for some:

-MSM can help hair growth and for some, loosen curls.

-Coconut milk/cream + lime

-Coconut milk + lemon

-Baking soda rinse/paste

-Brushing can disrupt curl pattern..

Anyways, I don't know if any of those work.. Cuz I'm trying to avoid loosening mine..

I know how you feel. My curls aren't EXTREMELY tight, I mean I do have "Afro" hair, but it's curly.

No nice way to put that so I'll put it down.. :p

Anyway, I'm a big fan of curl activators. Long Aid is my gel of choice. They keep your hair super moist, so it's softened and defined, but it also makes your hair wet and sticky. I'm still looking for a product that gives me those results with a cleaner feel, but it's a quick fix. :)

Also, hang in there. We all, no matter how "evolved" we claim to be, that feeling of "mine is not as good as hers" or at best "mine is not what I want it to be." It passes. I am going through it too. My hair is growing, I guess thriving.. But it just doesn't look/feel/BE how I want. But this will pass.

Love your hair. Make peace with it. It takes time. But it happens. And from there it's smooth sailing. :)
