I'm based in London and I have kinky/curly hair. After reading (and rereading) all the threads on hair type I am still confused lol! But from looking at foktis I would say I am a 3c/4a with porous hair that is now almost apl stretched.
I've been natural off and on for 15 years but have been lured by texturizers in the past (lies, don't do it!). This time its been 3 years since gave up on the hype and I am better informed and determined to stick natural!
V. interesting about shedding after preg. I have a 6month son and my hair didn't shed noticably more during or after birth. But my skin, oh no! I was a scaly lizard woman after he was born.
Happy to connect to other Euro 4a's. We can't get the same products as in the US and the weather is a whole different story! I have some henna to trade which I will describe in a separate post.
