    Talking Curly-haired newbie. [:

    Hello, my name is Tiffany. I have curly, jet black hair that is 27.5" long (stretched/straight ; bra strap length for me). I started out growing at 23".

    My hair type is so mixed up, there wasn't a correct option for it! It is a combination of 3A and 3B, with 3C underneath and 4A along my edges.

    Right now I am co-washing daily, drinking lots of water, taking a multivitamin and EPO, deep conditioning weekly, and going without trims for as long as possible.

    I have a problem with split ends, and sometimes dryness. My curls need a lot of moisture!

    My goal is to be tailbone length stretched/straightened. [:

    Welcome to LHC! Definitely check out the threads on oiling, if your curls need moisture oil might help retain the moisture you put into them.
