Texture: fine/medium
Porosity: medium;high where highlighted
Density: medium
Elasticity: normal;low where highlighted
Characteristics: curlier on the canopy than underneath, gets curlier as it gets longer, forms long stretched out spirals, loves humidity

CG/ModCG/not CG: CG

Hair ingredient likes: aloe vera, panthenol, protein, shea butter, jojoba oil, avocado oil, coconut oil
Hair ingredient dislikes: mineral oil, I think

Hard/Soft Water: soft (I think), it's mountain water

HG/Go-to Products: FSG (my own recipe), Aloe/water spritz, KBB Luscious Locks, the rest is a work in progress

Average climate/dew points: dry, dews in winter: teens to low 20's, practically zero at times, dews in summer: ~20-30

Fall/Winter combos: Suave Naturals/Ion Moisturizing Masque/KBB Hair Milk/FSG (for now)
Spring/Summer combos: work in progress

Favorite styling techniques and why: Smooth conditioner over dry hair, then get in shower and co-wash; rake a ton of gel through when wet; gently scrunch by pressing hair to scalp with microfiber towel (like a mini-plop to absorb excess water and encourage curl); Spritz with aloe/water when hair needs a pick-me-up; pineapple at night; Flexi-8's for any up-do's including ponytails (doesn't break my hair)
Techniques that didnít work and why: Full on plop: I think my hair is too short to plop right now, and my curls look all weird. Clipping my roots: because I'm "clip challenged" and cannot manage to do this without getting all tangled up in the clips. Rinsing upside down: water gets in my nose, and I don't see a difference from when I rinse standing straight up.

see highlighted.
I am much curlier underneath than on top.
