Yup, that's my hair! If I don't put any product in (and scrunch) my hair is super poufy and barely wavy. Looks like our hair could be similar!
I squeeze out some of the water from my hair first. Rake/comb in leave-in, then scrunch in my curl enhancer. Plop for 10-15 mins then scrunch in my hard hold gel. Plop again for 10 more mins then airdry. I SOTC with a butter.
Medium texture, normal porosity, normal elasticity, very weak waves.
