I'm kind of fed-up with the cg method also, at least for now. Don't feel badly - everyone's hair is so different, and also different at different times and seasons.
2/b maybe 2/c. Coarse hair med. density.
Protein sensitive but can use occasionally
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Smasters!
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
