Curl Pattern: mostly 3a with a little 2c?
Characteristics: my hair is mostly 3a but some 2c on one side. My hair can take most heavier products without problems. I live in a very dry climate. I don't do DT/PT often because my hair is in pretty good shape. I co wash, low poo (every once ina while) and use shampoo bars with success. I need hold or my curls will be waves by the end of the day. Every rarely do I get second day hair. I wear my hair up 98% of the time. My hair is past waist length with tapered ends.
