Probably 2b (maybe 2c on good "curl" days?)
Medium/Coarse, though my hair is not wiry -- just thick!
Flat top/no root curl, straight underneath, doesn't have a particularly strong wave pattern on no-product days, very frizzy, but especially so in humid weather
I'm not CG yet...waiting until I finish all my shampoo! I'll probably go ModCG then.
Hair ingredient likes:
In the way of non-ingredient-related things, it likes moisturizing COs (not overly hydrating, though) and gel (preferably the squeeze-out kind, not the spray-on)
Hair ingredient dislikes:
These are not ingredients, either, but for the most part, my hair doesn't like mousse, a blowdryer without a diffuser, or brushes (combs are OK when hair is CO-coated)
A little more on the hard side
GF curl shaping spray gel, HETT gel, Aussie Cleanse & Mend 'poo and CO
Average climate/dew points:
I think I'm going to pretty much use the same combo as I did for summer, unless my hair reacts in a bad way (it's my first winter really getting to know how to care for my wavy hair). I shower, do the SS method minus the leave-in, apply my gel, plop, and air dry or diffuse.
Same as above.
Favorite styling techniques and why:
Plopping (it's like scrunching your hair AND drying it at the same time!), SS method (it just enhances my waves, period!), and I think I like Pixiecurling (it doesn't disturb my wave pattern and reduces frizz a little).
Techniques that didnt work and why:
I didn't like Skipcurling too much if you do it with tiny pieces of hair. It looked like just a twist, no curl, if you KWIM. But with larger sections, it works OK.
I have yet to find one!
