Soo I suppose since it's the summer and I have more time to experiment with my hair, I want to try some new stuff with my hair. My hair has been okay lately, but it definitely could be better.
It hit me recently that my hair is, in fact, fine
and not thick and coarse like I've thought it was for a while. And I finally understood how products can "weigh hair down", cuz I've experienced it. :P
I also realized (I think) that my hair reacts better to gels than it does to creams. Still don't really know about cone/protein sensitivity, but I tend to avoid both just to be careful (I should probably figure that out, though).
My current routine: I condition with Suave Strawberry, then leave a little of it in and and use Fantasia IC Gel and a little Biotera (too much and my hair gets crunchy). And plop and airdry. Aaaand that's basically it. I used to use KCCC
which worked well for me, but it's a bit too expensive for me. I recently bought some coconut oil and almond oil on a whim, but I'm not qute sure how to use them, yet. And the coconut oil reacts badly with the Fantasia IC, unfortunatley.
My hair tends to get a fair amount of surface frizz, and while the curls themselves are pretty decent, they could stand to be a little less frizzy. I have a few random undefined curls, as well. And my hair tends to be pretty flat on top, but the only way I can to combat that is to clip it, which I dunno if I have the energy for, lol.
Basically, I'm looking for new product/technique suggstions! In general, I'm looking for more bounce and curl definition. I'd appreciate input, especially from curlies that have similar hair to me!
Hmm I'll try to update my album tomorrow, since all my pics are pretty old.
