You can be an in-betweeny... I am. 2C on its own, more and more 3A the more I do CG/learn new techniques/use different products/add protein. Plus my hair has its own opinion on a day-to-day basis.

LOL Dusalocks, exactly! I compared caring for my hair to trying to feed a baby on some other thread: it can't talk, but it sure can express what it likes and dislikes.

I use waaaay too many metaphors. It comes from being a tutor and TA. People glom on to metaphors when an idea eludes them, and different people require different metaphors to have that "click" moment. Therefore, I always have two or three for any given situation. Hair is just full of metaphor material!

Highlights damage (growing it out), seems to like protein and need lots of moisture.
