I've been growing out my hair for a while, maybe 1 year and a half or even two years. My hair is naturally curly and one of the reasons I started growing it out is because people kept telling me I could never get to go down (They thought it would just go up). Anyways, moving on...
It's not exactly to shoulder length yet, but close. I have a few problems with it. It's extremely thick and I can't control it at all so it does what it pleases.
You can see in the pictures that where it meets my face it starts making separate clumps as if I had dreads.
My hair is also extremely straw like and I don't know what to do. I only comb it when it's wet and keep it in a pony tail/bun until it dries so it doesn't explode and shit. Any options?
I hate the shape as well since it's a bit poofier at the bottom (That'll leave as it grows even longer).
And one of the BIGGEST problems is in the back, how when I lower my head, it shows like a big bump in the back.
CAN SOMEONE HELP WITH THESE PROBLEMS?
Now that I look at the pictures, my hair looks like a god damn squid

Since you say it feels like straw and its clumpy and poofy, here is what i suggest. Wash your hair 2-3 times a week. This will prevent your hair from drying out. When you DO wash, make sure you condition after you shampoo. This will help silken your curls. When you're done conditioning and out of the shower, moisturize your hair in sections and then detangle with a brush from tip to root. You can do this with coconut oil or argan oil or whatever you choose. Moisturizing before detangling will make it easier to manage and will remove any excess dead built up hair or knots. Lastly, i would advise you to deep condition at least once a week on a day where you don't shampoo. Deep conditioner are also called masks and can be found at most stores where regular shampoo and conditioner are available. This will refresh your curls and keep the moisture locked in. I'm sorry this is a bit long, but hair is no joke and i know a thing or 2 about curls. ;-P0
