Curl Pattern: 2b
Texture: Mostly medium with some fine and coarse
Characteristics: Loves aloe and protein. Gets frizzy and BIG in higher dews/humidity unless I use the right products.
CG/ModCG/not CG: CG
Hair ingredient likes: Aloe, protein
Hair ingredient dislikes: Oils, panthenol
Hard/Soft Water: I think I have hard water... not sure
HG/Go-to Products: The products in my signature are my HGs! Took me a year to figure it out.
Average climate/dew points: Detroit: hot and humid in the summer (or construction season, as we call it around here), cold and dry in the winter.
Fall/Winter combos: Now that I know my HGs, I can go back and perfect the seasonal combos.
Spring/Summer combos: Ditto--still working on the perfect combos.
Favorite styling techniques and why: Scrunching, plopping, diffusing: gets the curl going.
Techniques that didnít work and why: Raking pulls out the curl. Maybe I'll try Spritz and Condish again sometime to see if it works.
Hair Twins: finaleofseem and gekko. Maybe dark_waves, wavy wonder, pedaheh, rymorg2?
