I posted this photo online, hoping that someone would give me some guidance. I did not wear it this way, but I didn't really know how to transition. When you do decide to "rock those curls", hop on the web and see what other people are doing. You can find youtube videos, facebook pages and twitter accounts all about wearing your hair curly. Then you will be able to figure out where you may want to start. You can also get ideas of how you can style your hair.

If so, you will need to look and find out which one you would like to go to. What kinds of hair creams would you be interested in trying? This may be more difficult if you are trying to transition. I tried about 4 hair creams, prior to deciding on one I liked for shampoo and then I began creating my own styling cream. Here are the natural hair lines that I recommend:
