Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

... or you can ...

I'm not black or mixed. I'm white (or latina), but my hair is really curly. Will this work for me?
So long as you have very curly hair, yes, absolutely these techniques will work for you.

A longer answer than you probably wanted: I tend to show more pictures of people who are mixed or black because, well, I'm mixed, and this is what I learned to make my hair happy, and often black people have the kind of tight curls this technique is for. And I've noticed that for many people not of color, when they say "super curly, kinky, frizzy hair", it tend to be slightly curly, or wavy. And that kind of hair would be totally flattened by these techniques. So if you have really curly hair like my kind of curly, or the pictures of the lovely women you see on the site, then these techniques will work on your curls too. For proof, here are two pictures of my dad's wife Meredith (who is white), showing her hair after using these techniques for several years:
