thin to medium
S-curvy mostly. Gets weighed down easily. (Gets curly and frizzy when the humidity is high). My hair dries very quickly and is easy to straighten.
CG/Mod CG/not CG:
Mod CG. I am okay with sulfates and cones occasionally. I blow-dry sometimes.

Silk Amino Acids, lavender oil
Hair ingredient dislikes:
too much glycerin, castor oil, or polymers (polyquats) weigh my hair down

Average climate/dew points:
Humid in the late spring/summer, dry in the fall/winter (four seasons)
usually low-poo, conditioner, leave-in, gel
usually low-poo, conditioner, leave-in, spray gel. Sometimes I just spray in GF Wonder Waves spray and scrunch. I like to refresh with lavender mist during the day.
Favorite styling techniques and why:
One of these 3 methods:
1. scrunch using Hand Dry Hair Gloves (similar to a microfiber towel) until about 75% dry, then air-dry.
2. scrunch a few times with my hands, then Pixie Curl Diffuse until about 75% dry, then air-dry.
3. scrunch a few times with my hands, then air-dry.
I always blow-dry my bangs out.
Techniques that didn’t work and why:
Regular diffusing tends to make my hair frizz. Plopping gives me less-defined curls. Super soaker method gives me tighter curls, which I don't like on me.
Anyone with similar hair?
