Curl Pattern: 2a/b
Characteristics: Uneven curl patterns. Overall weak curl pattern. Canopy and face framing section seem to be curlier. Terrible haircut still trying to grow out is still giving me massive frizz and some uncurling (especially bottom bits). Nickname was "fuzzy bison." Hair needs some weighing down, but not too much. Medium weigh-down. Doesn't clump very well. Takes a long time to dry since CG (5-7hrs). I have issues getting crown volume since CG and not touching while drying.
CG/ModCG/not CG: CG
Ingredients hair likes: oils and protein both in moderation, honey!, fsg, natural products
Ingredients hair dislikes: sulfates... really any surfactants, I used to be mod-CG using low-poos regularly and my hair was way too dry/fluffy/frizzy. It's so much better now that I started co-washing. Also glycerin in high dews is awful.
HG/Go-to Products: I'm just starting (and starting slowly since I live in Asia). So far my hair loves honey (gives me nice clumps!) and I'm having some good results w/ FSG. I like Nature's Gate conditioners.
Average climate/dew points: tropical, hot, humid, high dew points year round
Spring/Summer combos: All one season
Favorite styling techniques and why: plopping bc it reduces drying time. Ice queen. scrunching.
Techniques that didnít work and why: plopping sometimes gives me wonky uneven curls... i think it's a 2-thing. I tried the duckbill thing no bueno. Think my duck bills are too large.
