  1. Thanks for the info; I have now determined my hair type. My hair is medium-thick, curly and quite dry. Sometimes I love my hair to be looking sleek and straight after using my hair straightening brush, but other times I like to embrace my natural thick curls. I want a product which will enhance them, any suggestions on how and what to do?

      Apply a leave-in conditioner or moisturizer with your fingers by scrunching the tips of your hair with the product. Using a leave-in product will greatly help with the dryness of your hair. You probably already know this, but don’t brush or comb your hair because it will make it frizzy. I hope this helps you.
