Texture: baby-fine to fine
Porosity: low to low-normal
Density: I have a LOT of hair, but medium ponytail
Characteristics: flat top/no root curl, easy to straighten, prone to frizz and lacks volume
CG/ModCG/not CG: mostly CG (occasionally use ApHogee 2-Step) and currently investigating low/no-poos due to hard water
Hair ingredient likes: protein, oils/butter (especially coconut oil and shea butter)
Hair ingredient dislikes: straight olive oil
Hard/Soft Water: hard
HG/Go-to Products: FSG, EcoStyler Krystal. Still working on a HG harder hold gel. La Bella Ultimate Hold has the best hold/root lift, but producty feeling. But your hair will stand up for days...literally.
Average climate/dew points: just moved here to the SE GA coast, but they are like N. FL (humid)
Fall/Winter combos: Still working on this. I either get great volume but more frizz than I want, or shine and no volume nor hold.
Spring/Summer combos: ?
Favorite styling techniques and why: Spritz & Condish; modified icequeen method (for LIs and styling, not in the shower); SSM for products like EcoStyler; pixiecurl diffusing for volume and curl enhancement
Techniques that didn’t work and why: Plopping. I still use it, but that's just because it gets my hair out of my face so I can do my makeup. Air drying is good for my hair's health, but not for root lift.
Hair Twins: Working on it!
