Default Products and styling

this is me about 2 months ago, the front of my hair reaches a little below my chin now and touches my shoulders (which is annoying because it makes it shrink even more)
Lately it just hasn't been looking good, i don't know how to style it, i wear it parted like this http://0.tqn.com/d/beauty/1/G/e/M/1/...rt-in-hair.jpg but like i said, it hasn't been looking good recently.

I use the cg method and i co-wash my hair once or twice a week with suave naturals conditioner and use that same conditioner as a leave in every day

I can relate because as my hair grows longer it just appears to be getting shorter because of the curls.

I can stretch my hair down to touch the belly button on my stomach but when it dries with curls it shrinks back up to my shoulders.

I guess it's a good sign of healthy curls but it does seem awkward that it does that LOLx

Correct. If you keep growing your hair out, the curl will eventually elongate. It will just take some patience if that's the look you want. I'm tempted to ask: Pinoy? (LOL, not looking for an answer to that, just wondering out loud.)

I was actually addressing the OP because he looks like some Filipino people I've seen Princeton, I couldn't really tell with you, perhaps because your icon pic is so small.

Default my hubby!!!

This man here is my husband. I would say that he has like a 3c 4a texture. I know it doesn't look that way cuz he likes to wear his hair out and fro-like rather than curly. Any tips on how he should put his hair up @ night? He usually just puts it up in a high ponytail/ bun and just go to sleep. When he wakes in the AM he combs out his hair mainly in the front and back and totally forgets about the middle and now the middle has broken off a good deal. Any suggestions on hair care products HE should use cuz he's been at the mercy of my curly hair products?

He's at that awkward length where you can't really style it at this length so you can braid it down for a couple months so it grows out longer or cut it a little just to style it.

He needs to keep his scalp moisturized near the crown area. Not sure what's causing his breakage but it could be thinning on the scalp due to genetics not necessary breaking mid shaft.

There are some hair styling products are available in the market among those Instyler rotating iron was considered as best. It gives you 3 functionality in a single product. Using that single tool you can do some latest style on your hair.


For more details on Instyler

LOL sorry but that thing you're trying to sell isn't very curl-friendly. Also, my confidence falls when reading an ad with lazy spelling.
