Curl pattern: 3a with some 3b and 2c to make it interesting
Texture: baby fine
Porosity: low to medium
Density: thin side of normal
Characteristics: currently just past shoulder length (when dry) and reaches just past my shoulder blades (when wet). Light brown with red Demi-permanent color, gradually getting control of my frizz. My curl pattern is much stronger and tighter since going sulfate free.
Mod CG: still use some products with a-cone....lo poo usually 2-3x week.
Hair likes: Moisture! Coconut, shea, and more natural products. Keratin protein only regularly, but some protein is ok if it is at the bottom of ingredient list.
Hair dislikes: products with heavy proteins, ANYTHING wheat-based; glycerin.
Climate: Seattle marine climate, rainy and cool with moderate dews year-round.
likes: Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat(HG), Beautiful Textures moisturizing poo, SM MR poo, DB Pumpkin cond (HG), JC Too Shea (HG), One & Only Argan Oil hydrating Masque, Camille Rose Moisture Milk, JCCC, MGA Sculpting gel, Curls Goddess gel, Uncle Funky' s daughter Curly Magic
Techniques I like: scrunching in product upside down, applying stylers to soaking wet hair and then scrunching out some of the moisture with flour sack towel.
Didn't like: satin pillowcase (get too hot at night), finger shaping my curls (just doesn't seem to help at all), diffusing (too much frizz)
Possible hair twins: jsuzkelley (different climate), Cuban curl-e (different curl pattern but many of the same issues with products), dresdendoll
3a, baby fine i/ii, low to normal porosity, protein sensitive
