Thank you everyone for sharing! I've found your stories touching and many made me giggle as well.

I was always very conservative about my hair so I never did anything dramatic to it. I would just look in the mirror at my frizzy triangle and think well..... that's just how my hair was. It was terrible for whatever reason, but looks were never my forte so terrible hair was just another checkmark in "falling off the ugly tree and hitting every branch on the way down." My frizzball hair was just another branch LOL!!!! Lucky me!
fine - normal porosity*?- medium density - normal elasticity. Hard water. SoCal.
*Used to be low-porosity, but I lightened my hair 1-2 shades, so I may be normal-porosity now.
