Your natural curl pattern is what you are born with, what you appear at any given moment with different products or techniques is not your natural curl pattern. Otherwise everyone who flat irons or BKTs successfully is a 1a which is nonsense.
You aren't reading my posts properly, they would make more sense if you did so before disagreeing. I didn't claim ALL silicones weigh down ALL wavies nor did I say anything about damage!! I said silicone conditioners CAN weigh down loose wavies particularly
and that typing is intended to level the playing field
. Again as I have said people often acknowledge that in typing threads hair can be between a couple of curl patterns depending how it is treated.
I don't need you to give me the idiot's guide to the silicone family, thank you, I have done my own research.
