First, I suggest you get on YouTube and watch a lot of videos.

Second, I suggest you figure out a wash 'n go method that works best for you.  That's the easiest style for short hair.  I do the LOC method (leave-in conditioner, oil, cream), but some naturals use gel or conditioner only.

Third, read thru a lot of the "101" posts in this forum.  They have a lot of basic information.

Finally, feel free to post questions about specific products, techniques or whatever you need.

  Keep your hair moisturized as best as you can. I wore a wig for months after I bc'd because I couldn't do anything with it, wasn't used to it and I was still missing my longer hair. Now, I havn't wore a wig in a long time. When you're ready to go out with your own hair you'll know.  :)

Yes - please read through alot of info - but weaves are ok for now as you educate yourself.  Also - don't be afraid to experiment with your hair - try products - there's reviews everywhere - take time to learn what works for you.  And finally ... get a love thing going with your hair.  Look at you in the mirror ... and "recognize" yourself and how much you "love her".  Give yourself a <BIG HUG> and let go and let God.

I would suggest that you be care about using too many products on your hair, and just keep your moisturized everyday.
