Well hunny, im not very good at doin this hair thing, but i know it depends on the climate u live in. i was born and raised in South carolina where its hot and humid, could never really keep it straight with out loading it down with olive oil, but then it look very greasy. When i moved to nevada where there is no humidity i didnt have to use anything at all. so climate and humidity matter, also i wld recomend u try a relaxer in you hair, thts what i would have to do when i was younger. And for me the longer my hair got the straighter is started becoming when it was shorter is was super thick and curly like yours. I hope this helps u put some sweetie.
Straightened my hair and now its puffy again???
I washed my hair with Matrix Biolage Hydratherapie shampoo, and conditioned my hair with Garnier Frutics Hydra recharge and let it sit in my hair with coconut oil for about a hour then washed it out. I sprayed my hair with Its A 10 leave in conditioner and Matrix Biolage Smoothing Milk then blow dryed and flat ironed my hair. About 10 minutes later my hair doubled it got puffy. At first it was really nice and straight now its puffy and I have it in a pony tail because of the poof. What products do u recommend to use so when Im done flat ironing it would stay straight and not get puffy?I have 3b/3c hair type, very curly thick/alot of hair.
