Hair Biography

Curl Pattern: 2c/3a/3b (mainly 3a)
Texture: fine/med
Porosity: high
Density: dense (and long)
Elasticity: normal to low
Characteristics: layered, side bangs. Canopy tends to be weak. Nape mats. Can get flat top. Frizz if I touch it too much or try to refresh with water.

CG/ModCG (cone free, rare sulfates, low-poo and co-wash.)

Ingredients hair likes: LOVES protein, needs lots of moisture, has to be sealed (preferably with MO).

Ingredients hair dislikes:
Not many. AVG on its own is a problem, but in things or combined with things is fine. Hair does not seem to like cones much.


HG/Go-to Products:
GVPCB
gelatin PT
MO
FSG
AIF


Average climate/dew points:
Humid summers, dry winters. (Not sure about the dews - high in summer, low in winter!)


Fall/Winter combos:
More co-washing, sealing with MO and Vo5 hairdressing, less glycerin.
Spring/Summer combos:
Low poo a little more often, seal with MO and/or jojoba oil.

Year round: Low poo, co-wash, clarify as needed, PT/DT, seal, gel.

Favorite styling techniques and why:
Must detangle in shower, with wide then fine tooth comb. Must seal! Must form curls on very wet hair, apply gel, then scrunch with towel to remove excess water. A little gel then a plop for as long as possible, then clip roots and diffuse 50-75%. SOTC when ready.

Techniques that didn’t work and why:
Refreshing with water. I just frizz and droop.
