Hair ingredient likes: Moisture, Botanicals, Light Proteins
Hair ingredient dislikes: Coconut Oil,Polyquats, Aloe, Heavy Proteins. Pretty much every cleansing agent; harsh or mild my hair hates them all.
Hard/Soft Water: slightly hard
HG/Go-to Products: Renpure Body & Shine Conditioner, Kenra Moisturizing Conditioner, AG Mousse Gel (rarely used but does work for me), SS Emollience (only in summer)
Average climate/dew points: Dry, typical dews 15-45°F in spring/summer sub-zero to mid 30s in fall/winter
Fall/Winter combos: Pretty much use the same products year round
Favorite styling techniques and why: Doing all cleansing and rinsing upside down, plopping- speeds dry time and enhances curl, cold water rinse- reduces frizz and adds shine, sleep on a high quality silk pillowcase- reduces tangles and retains moisture.
Techniques that didn’t work and why: Pineappling-gives me a headache, Duckbill clips-
just can't seem to get them to work no matter how much I try.
