Okay, I just took a peek at the pic of yourself on your profile page and noticed two things: First, you are very pretty

Second, your dry hair in that pic looks A LOT different than the pics of your wet hair pics above. Looks to me like you may have mostly type 4 hair that just looks somewhat more 3-ish when wet (most hair looks less curly when wet). Either way, maybe NCC's product change suggestions can help improve the condition of your hair if it turns out glycerin is somewhat of a problem for you.
3b/c?
