Thanks for chiming in, CurlyMJ. I appreciate your input. I want to be like you actually, and wear my hair curly all the time, but I'm so frustrated now.

I did a roller set, so it will look fairly neat but crappy and old fashioned for several days. if I let it curl it looks great on day 1 and a disaster afterward.

I think I need a new head. That would solve a lot of my problems.
2/c and some 3A.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker
Stylers: Mix Curls in a Bottle into everything for shine. Terrible pj
Sometimes try roller sets or use a curling brush - classic glamor.
Every day is a gift
