Finally starting to figure this out... maybe...
Curl Pattern: 2b/3a
Porosity: low (I think...)
Density: med-thick, especially at the crown and just below it on the back of my head
Elasticity: normal (??)
Characteristics: not terribly flat but more root curl if diffused, easy easy easy to style - holds without product when heat-styled or just if pinned up for more than 5 minutes, permanent color for the last 6-7 years (premature grey :-P)
CG/ModCG/not CG: modified CG (flaky scalp cannot handle no-poo)
Hair ingredient likes: moisture moisture moisture, keratin, aloe, oils as long as rinsed out (like with a DT) or applied to dry hair only
Hair ingredient dislikes: glycerin, polyquats, wheat/oat protein, soy protein, ??silk protein
Hard/Soft Water: soft
HG/Go-to Products: Giovanni Tea Tree poo, Suave naturals conditioners (except coconut), KCKT and KCCC (new loves), GVP K-pak for protein
Average climate/dew points: as low as 20s in the winter and 70s in the summer, average probably 40-50
Fall/Winter combos: still working...
Spring/Summer combos: still working...
Favorite styling techniques and why: air drying, scrunching with just hands or a t-shirt, smasters as long as I SOTC with a few drops of oil (otherwise diffusion = frizz, even pixicurls style), plopping? (need a different towel I think)
Techniques that didnít work and why: pineappleing (stylable hair = ponytail lines), overaggressive diffusing (frizz frizz frizz), any kind of clipping (it all makes lines in my hair)
Hair Twins: ?? (would love to find one!)
Mod CG since 5/10, 2b/3a, medium width, med density, low/med porosity, greying since 18, color over grey since 21
Hair hates: non-keratin protein, glycerin, sorbitol, sulfates, polyquats, co-washing (flaky scalp)
Hair loves: fewer/more natural ingredients, moisture
Low poo: Giovanni TTTT
RO: SN - Strawberry, ES
Product: KCCC, HETT, FSG (?)
