Thanks, I think it doesn't help that I was finally comfortable with my stylist back home, then she quit and I had to flounder around again, never really finding one. Then I moved here and I have tried two since being here and the second was better, but she's the reason I have so many tiny layers because she cut my hair as if it were straight lol.
Fine, low porosity, med/high density
BSL - going for mid back to waist
HG: currently just washing with a low poo that contains protein (Alba Naturals Coconut) and using Suave Naturals Coconut as both a RO and LI. No stylers right now, but this gives me pretty good curl, definition, low-ish frizz, and it feels and looks good. Also an occasional PT (liking the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula which has cones) seems to be key for me.
