I have hard, dry, tight curls. What can I use to style my hair?

Hi Brian, I am 19 and am I very active in sports. I have hard, dry, tight curls. I have tried everything to try get nice straight hair but it only ever happened once when I was 14 my mom found a lady she was colored and just knew how to help me. I can't do anything with my hair. I am white but the hairdresser Carmel said my hair is the same as colored people. Please tell me what products to use to maybe one day be able to actually have a hair style. I can not get a straightening iron in the hair so I'm trapped.


My suggestion would be that she get the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme pre-shampoo treatment along with the Moisture Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner. She should sit under a steamer with the treatment for about 15-20 minutes and then shampoo and condition. Some clients use the treatment as a leave-in to get added moisture so as to soften the hair more.

That’s my advice as far as products are concerned. I would have to know more about her length or maybe see a picture to recommend more. Is she based in Cape Town?
