hi, my hair is 3c and I just went natural from box braids I am only 13 and I just found this website. I use deva curl stuff my mom brought and I braid my hair like my mom says to do. My hair is super frizzy and I want to start a curly hair journey and I don't know what to do please help.
Hey, your a year older than me! Well, anyways, you said you wanted to start a hair journey and a big part of a hair journey is your hair regimen or in other words, routine. Your hair routine must consist of a shampoo, deep conditioner, moisturizer, and a sealer for a smooth finish. Most people do these things in the order as I wrote them. I have answered 2 questions about how a hair routine should look like prior to this. Therefore, due to my natural occurring laziness, I would have done thee ever so famous "Copy & Paste" but my (well it's not mine, my dad and brother use it too) computer won't let me so I have to log in on a different tab and copy my answer from the previous question asked about starting a hair routine, WORD BY WORD!

They're just ingredients that I know are UBER moisturizing and high in vitamins and good... um..like...hair things so I put them together. You can make the measurements up by yourself and tweak them after continued use. But don't worry, I know my hair schtuff, for I am a HAIR-SCIENTIST! The sealer though is actually a recipe I put together (using other people's tested measurements. But I did not copy the idea of the ingredients put together. I actually made those up myself. Props, though to the YouTubers I got the measurements from.) The recipe is obviously in the RECIPES section of this website; Check it out!Your Welcome!- Rahmat The Hair Obsessed 12 Year Oldp.s. i'm sorry it took me a day to answer but the internet explorer was being slow and the words showed up like 5 minutes after I had already typed them. So I'd had to type then wait for them to show up then type then wait for them to show up! Plus it was getting late and I had to got to bed. Luckily today I copied what I wrote in Internet Explorer and pasted it to Google Chrome which is way faster!
