Had to revisit this - I was having a blah day 2 hair day today (limp and droopy) so I did a couple braids and pulled it into a side pony. I hate the way hair bands look, so I took a section of hair, wrapped it around the hair band, and secured it with a bobby pin. I just took the section out (getting ready to do a DT) and it is this big, shiny, bouncy curl that looks like I used a hot roller or large barrel curling iron. I love that about curly hair - no heat necessary, and such versatility.
2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
