Curl Pattern: 3a
Characteristics: decent root curl, very agreeable to most ingredients/products, tendency to clump into rope/sausage curls as the day goes on
CG/ModCG/not CG: modified CG. When I'm not in stash kill mode I would say I follow CG about 80% of the time.
Ingredients hair likes: My hair cannot get enough protein. I also do well with glycerin in a very wide range of dew points (from 0 up to low 70s)
Ingredients hair dislikes: I haven't had any ingredients that my hair dislikes, although I have found that my hair does not care for non-water-soluble silicones in cleansers or conditioners (I have no issue with them in styling products)
HG/Go-to Products: only 5? CHS Treatment Shampoo (not CG), Regis Olive Oil Conditioner, Curl Keeper, Re:Coil, Deva Ultra Defining Gel. This is my guaranteed awesome hair combo.
Average climate/dew points: low dews in winter (-5 to about 15), warm an humid summers (dews around 60-70)
Fall/Winter combos: I don't add anything different for fall/winter
Spring/Summer combos: only product that I have that I only use in spring/summer is Ouidad Climate Control Gel (not CG)
Favorite styling techniques and why: I don't really do any complicated techniques- I do plop my hair for about 10 minutes, but that's just to keep it out of my way as I get dressed
Techniques that didnt work and why: I used to be able to squeeze out extra water with a microfiber towel, but since I cut my hair the towel gives me extra frizz. I also do not do second day hair.
