Hi all!

This chatty newbie has been stalking natural sites for quite a while and finally decided to join a couple today. I already love posts by EmpressRi and mariag002 and others here and on youtube, fotki, etc. I have no idea how to style my hair just yet so I actively seek reviews of products and styling suggestions from others. My picture (3/09) is in a pulled back ponytail, but does show my wave pattern. I am a product junkie of all things that might achieve great hair and skin (still searching) and look to others' opinions to narrow down which new things to try. I haven't relaxed my hair to my best memory, since before January 2008. I never did a big chop.
2/3 of my hair back from hairline is extremely porous and a different curl pattern from the back, so I tend to wear it pulled back and let the back hang out. My hair easily forms ringlets around my finger. It seems to have a more S curl on its own.
I am pretty sure that I am a 3b in the back and possibly 3c-4a in the front. I am not sure if this classification should be determined without any product or with product, individual strands or clumped…so confusing. I have several inches of relaxed ends at the top of my head, slow growth there. Just tried an ACV rinse yesterday for the first time. I have tried Amla and Shikakai powders mixed with conditioner once and thinking about trying some type of porosity balancing product.
I just bought the Boots Curl Crème after reading many positive reviews. It is quite an investment considering the shipping, but I am hopeful! There are so many products to try and of course I want fast results but realize that this is a process and takes trial and error and effort. For the past few months, I have been using some of Teri’s (tightlycurly.com) methods; co-washing and using just a combing conditioner for styling my hair.
Simply seeking knowledge!
Still contemplating the big chop, but I’m a big chicken!
Welcome! We are so happy you are here.....
