my hole life i have had curly curly CURLY hair! i tryed everything until i learned to DO NOT brush my hair. It frizzis and destroys curls along with splitting ends. I also thought if i just kept my hair short it would go away but instead with no weight of curls on my head, my hair would just poof! So when it got longer, it weighed down. well when im in the shower i use my fingers and stream it through my hair WITHOUT useing shampoo, most shampoos strip and dry hair. But only most. Try to use naturaul products like mousse anything light and even what works to is braiding your hair at night and sleeping with it in! Any other tips post!
