I’m wanting to go more natural with my hair. It’s pretty wavy/curly and I’m thinking it’s 2B. I’ve always straightened it and occasionally curled it with a wand, but I’m wanting to bring out the natural curl. Where do I start? I’ve heard the curly girl method isn’t the best way to do it, but that’s just what I’ve heard. I don’t know what products to buy, or if there are good sources on YouTube or wherever that I can watch videos. TIA!

The biggest thing I'd avoid is a curly girl haircut unless you plan to only ever wear your hair curly. My hair is curly but I also like to wear it straight sometimes. A curly girl cut does not look good straight in my experience.
I don't shampoo very often and usually just get my hair wet again to reset my curls. With the cream above.
Also when I'm about to get out of the shower i flipp my head and let the water run down with it upside down. Putin the cream and scrunch product in while scrunching some water out. Then I grab my towel and scrunch a bit more. Style into place and then air dry.

I recently wanted to do the same after getting a cut since I have thick, heavy hair that curls well after a shower. I went to a hair stylist and she recommended using a leave-in conditioner after showering. I also live in a really humid area so I put in a hair elixer too. I switched shampoo and conditioner to a silicone free type and this has helped a lot more. So my routine and products are:
Pantene deep detox & renew with charcoal silicone free shampoo and conditioner
After shower I mix together Ouidad moisture lock leave-in conditioner and use Garnier Fructus Triple Marvelous Oil hair elixer (mix the conditioner with a little bit of the oil, put in damp hair, and brush through, then scrunch).
Hope this helps! I suck at doing my hair so this is a huge learning curve for me.
