Reading the CG handbook opened my eyes to the "straightening" effect of the shower head. Generally my underlayers are curlier, but when I tried doing everything in the shower upside down, it became inverse and my canopy became the curliest and my underlayers became straighter. I think washing your hair in still water could prevent some of the "shower head straightening" effect. It makes total sense why a shower head, especially a stronger one, down on your locks would make a difference, especially if you're using hot water.... don't know why I never thought about that before reading the book.
fine - low/normal porosity - medium density - normal elasticity.
