wavy, with some loose wavy spirals on top and "curlier" spirals in back/underneath
fine with some medium hairs (the reddish and brownish ones on my blonde head are more "medium")
low to normal
thin on sides, denser in back
Tends to lie close to my head. Grows in all sorts of crazy directions. Lots of sensitivities/allergy to ingredients in products. Silky feel, easily weighed down by conditioners.
CG - I use mild shampoos every other day and whatever else works and doesn't itch, I don't play by any rules.
Hair ingredient likes:
Protein! (gelatin protein treatment, Neutral Protein Filler, most proteins), aloe, grapeseed oil, FSG, certain herbal rinses (nettle, hops&horsetail)
Hair ingredient dislikes:
heavy oils (i.e. coconut, mineral oil), standard (cationic) conditioners too often, polyquats - anything that doesn't rinse clean.
Hard water, the hardness varies throughout the year.
Unscented products preferred with no itchy ingredients. Flaxseed gel with additives such as xanthan gum, aloe, protein, oil, panthenol, maybe agave nectar. Kiss My Face Upper Management Gel (sometimes with a stronger-hold gel on top) - this one can itch by the end of the day. If not using shampoo, then baking soda washes followed by citric acid rinse.
I use the same products year-round.
Favorite styling techniques and why:
Scrunching in generous amounts of gel, trying to preserve clumps. Diffusing to set in the waves and curls, then air-drying the rest of the way. Clipping the top of my hair and the sides (where scalp starts to curve).
