Strutt'sWife, thank you so much for this thread. I think many curlies will pay attention to it because you are a professional.
I'm am so in agreement with this. I have similar looking hair to some curlies who have great success with Twist & Curls using similar products, yet 4 times out of 5, I cannot get a smooth one. I don't know why and it's frustrating, because our hair LOOKS alike. My porous, fine-medium textured, cottony hair becomes frizzy and flyaway when the natural texture is changed via twists and probably roller setting too. I need to learn more about this.
I also roll my eyes whenever I see another thread on "what hair type am I?"
I've seen a major increase in more "3's" using traditionally "4"-type products like buttery stuff, moisturizing creams, etc. And it's not because of curl type.
