I'm with you. A guy with curls + beard = KeLynn in a puddle on the floor
2b (with some straight under-layer, grrrrr)
Normal porosity, low elasticity, medium texture
(according to CurlGenie - HUGE surprise, I always thought I had fine hair and my stylists always agreed)
Tried CG for a summer, but it wasn't for me. I don't load up on sulfates and silicones, but I have no shame in using them when I want/need to! Currently loving LOOB.
