Hi ladies & gents!

My name is Ty and i have been natural since Oct of 2010 (doing my BC) but i am very new to the site. I just heard of it yesterday and INSTANTLY found a bunch of natural hair salons in my area, that i had been searching for since i went natural.

Im a college undergrad student in Ohio but live in Arizona when school is out. Being natural has been a rollercoaster for me because like stated above, i didnt know of any salons & im very cautious about my hair being done by strangers because i know that not everyone knows how to do kinky 3c/4a hair. I decided to go natural after transitioning and looking at youtube videos since may 2010.

About my hair:
I have very THICK, frizzy and tangld hair. When its wet you can see the curls defined but it quickly will frizz up into an afro like state if i dont put any curl holder/definer on it or do a twist/braid out. What i've been struggling with for the past year is my hair being dry, dandruff (even before i was natural), SSK's, and i have yet to find a staple poo/conditioner.
I've used everything from shea moistures, selsun blue, KCCC, organics, Giovanni leave in, carols daughters, aussie moist, cantu shea, yes to products and pantene naturals.

Before going natural (transitioning)

My first twist out (still not natural yet)

My BC oct, 9th 2010

I had it cut into the rihanna shaved off sides & this was how it was growing out after a few months (march 2011)

My current normal afro (a little stretched), blow out, straightened

You are beautiful!
So in order to reverse some of the damage my hair has endured from SSK's to heat/sun damage i did a Aphogee Protein two step treatment on my hair.
Have you heard of the curly girl method? I think you really should try it. Its designed to recovery curls and eliminating dry-ness. This method was founded by Lorraine Massey and she also has a book about it called 'Curly Girl : The Handbook Extended Edition'.
