So I am officially one month natural and I am a little overwhelmed with all the info out there. I watched Anthony dickeys video and he basically said that tightly coiled 4 type hair is like a Jhericurl in that it needs daily moisture which is why he recommended daily cowashes. I think my hair type is 4a. The issue is have is waking up daily to shrunken dry hair even when I band it . I have to spritz water on it daily. Is this because my hair is shorter like an Afro. It shrinks if I don’t braid or twist it after washing but I have a spiral curl pattern. I have also become a product junkie trying to figure out what is working. . I want to work smarter not harder as of now it’s time consuming daily to get my hair presentable .Here’s some pics of my trials and errors. But I must say my hair loves the extra moisture it’s been getting and is growing Since I cut it in January 2021. The last pic I blew it out and lightly flat ironed to trim my ends and was shocked that my hair had some length while it it is straight. I had transitioed my hair for 14 months from relaxers before my big chop.
