2c/3a wurly with some 2b thrown in
very patchy wurl/wave/curl pattern, both medium and coarse strands.
Hard water or soft water:
Hard, with very high Ph, about the same as baking soda
Average climate/dew points:
all over the map, very high in summer, pretty low in winter, and then suddenly really high
Do you PT? If so how often?
PT about twice a week, on average 20 minutes
PT with heat or steam?
Recently started using heat (shower)
Favorite products that contain protein?
No CG products with protein available here, which is why I PT twice a week
Proteins your hair likes?
Proteins your hair dislikes?
Do you DT? If so, how often?
About once a week, about an hour.
DT with heat or steam?
EVOO with conditioner
Favorite products to moisturize your hair:
behentrimonium methosulfate, avocado oil
Do you seal? If so, what do you use to seal?
Sometimes, usually with sesame oil
Do you avoid humectants? If so, which humectants do you avoid? Do you avoid them at all dew points or only certain dew points?
Pretty much all of them, they give me frizz. With higher dew points I sometimes can handle them, but dew points here can change from high to low and vice versa in the course of a day
Low dew point combos:
Put some LI over gel
Normal dew point combos:
High dew point combos:
FSG, Inecto coconut conditioner, LALSG, ACV
Name the methods, techniques, and tricks that work for your porous hair?
Supersoak in the shower, never ever ever scrunch (use flat palm to press up hair to scalp). PT regularly, use ACV every other day.
Wurly 2b/2c/3a Miii - high porosity
