The times I most felt like a wavy imposter is the two times I had the audacity to go for a "curly do". I once went for just a curly style (wash and diffuse with product) at a curly salon in Toronto (forget the name). While there I bought a bunch of Deva products. I just wanted to know if my frizz could translate to curl. Not very well.
The second time I went was for a trim at Johnathan Torch (also in Toronto). He's the Curl Keeper guy. My hair looked FABULOUS when done...but I was just so uncomfortable with my weak wave pattern in the middle of all these women with like type 4 curls. Such a poseur! I haven't gone back.
That, and I used to regularly see someone in Toronto for my hair and I really didn't want to go down that road again. It's a 4hour train ride to go to the salon.
My siggie says I don't care if my hair is straight or curly...but that's not REALLY true. I'd like it if I didn't feel like such an imposter pretending to have curly hair when I shop for products or join a discussion (or even wear it wavy). Truly straight or, definitely curly would be preferable from that standpoint.
New to having waves. Don't care if it's curly or not but this surface frizz drives me NUTS.
Baby Fine. On the thin side of average. Low porosity.
Atopic dermatitis/eczema. Too many allergies and sensitivities to count.
