    I've just been styling my hair with Nutiva coconut oil and it works to fight the frizz and dryness.
    My hair is bordering on type 3A, if you can get the reference.

    I'll find warmth in the steel of her glare
    I'll hear music in the darkness of her silence
    Don't leave me there.

    @fidelia

    I tried the shampoo and conditioner and it has been the best so far for my thick, coarse curly mane:


    The conditioner literally already defines my curls in the shower and when it dries, I don't even need a styling product to make it look good.
    So worth it~

    I have probably the straightest of curly hair on the spectrum.

    I've been using this girl's advise lately..

    Stop Using Coconut Oil and Shea Butter On Your Hair Now! | BlackDoctor

    Moooostly. I still use coconut oil/shea butter at times, mixed in with other ingredients, but rarely now.

    Products I'm currently using:
    - Herbal Essences naked dry shampoo after working out.


    - On my tips/ends, mostly for a good smell or to make my hair 'stickier' for up-doing, orr if I can't wash my hair that day and it's been nearly a week, I use soultanicals fluff-a-licious.. the one on the left.


    Before showering: the night before I use straight-up apple cider vinegar directly on my scalp. It helps a lot with scalp itch. I have dandruff pretty badly.. not from a fungus of any sorts, but because my combination skin that plagues my face is also on my scalp, causing a mix of oily scalp + dry scalp that flakes off. Apple cider vinegar gives a lot of relief, and pre-treating my scalp with it really helps cut right through for the dandruff shampoo the next day.

    - During my shower:
    I wash my scalp with a dandruff shampoo.


    I wash the rest of my hair with whatever cheap shampoo is available.. but my best friend sends me this shampoo from france, so I've been using it. it's the white/silvery bottle in the line up, an almond extract one. It's the french version of suave basically.


    Then I use a cleansing conditioner all over from my scalp to my ends, and wash it entirely out. This guy doesn't have any of the heavy oils from that article.


    After that, naked Conditioner just on my ends--probably from my shoulders down.


    ... Occasionally, when my hair gets really knotted up, I'll use a lemon head knot spread from soultanicals before I start my washing up.

    ... Other than that, I use Suave kids detangling spray when I brush my hair...


    I occasionally (once a year or so) put henna in my hair because my hair has been dulling with age. (not my pics.)


    But henna smells very very bad in my hair for a while after using it... like a month. So, whenever my hair gets wet, I also have to buy this stuff to help balance out that smell. Soultanicals Kink Drink, a spray for your hair that lightly moisturizes and the lavender smell neutralizes the henna smell.


    Aaand that's about it. I really don't think I ever stick anything else in my hair...

    Currently in love with jojoba oil for my curly hair, tbh.

    My hair is naturally curly with lose curls, like Shakira's hair before she straightened it out. My favorite shampoo is Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil. It's around $10, so it's not dirt cheap, but it's sulfate free, not tested on animals, and lasts a pretty good amount of time in general. Makes my hair nice and shiny too. I used to cowash with a conditioner, but it would always weigh down my hair. So now I only shampoo it every other day and find that it works best for me.

    I have 3b curls and am considering going super short. I've had long hair for decades now. Something like this: http://i0.wp.com/therighthairstyles....aggy.jpg?w=500

    yay or nay? You can see my pic on my profile if you need to imagine/compare.

    I love your hair long but I think you would look really cute with it short like that.

    Do you use headbands and barrettes and stuff like that @iwakar?

    I had my hair like in the pic and found accessories helped to 'play' with the style but my SIL feels stuff like that is juvenile so I know it depends on the person...

    Bobby pins and hair combs are what I typically use.

    Yes yes yes. Totally.

    Or maybe one of those where it's longer in the front than the back, and longer on one side than the other -- so the curls cascade across your face.
