Default How do I know what my hair likes?

I hear a lot of people say my hair hates or loves a product. How do you know?

Trial and error, mostly. Have a look around this website and find people that have similar hair properties as you and see what products they use

It can be really hard to figure out what your hair likes and what it doesn't. The best advice I can given is keep an eye on ingredients and when you change something in your hair regimen only change one thing at a time.

Hair: 2a or 3a (not sure), very porous and fine as frog hair
Day 1: Cowash and condition with AO GPB, ACV Rinse,
Co-Kra gel (this stuff is fantastic)

Day 2: KCKT, KCCC, plop, KCCC, plop again, air dry
Day 3: Curly Kinks Satin Roots, Coil Jam
Day 4: IAGirl's PT, KBB DT, FSG

Co-Kra gel is my own concoction of okra boiled in coconut milk. It is a cross between FSG and KCCC and leaves my hair very soft and shiny

I agree with one of the previous posters, I think it's a LOT of trial and error. Most people just kind of keep their eyes on ingredients in products they use and sometimes they see a pattern with a certain ingredient that seems to show up in a bunch of products their hates or loves and they make that connection.

I know my hair hates protein because everytime I use it I get terrible frizzy straw like curls. It's things like that , that lets you know.
The easiest way to find what products to use is to find the type of hair you have coarse, fine, etc and your porosity and the dew point of your area. Look it up theres tons of information here. Then use suggested products for your hair needs. Lol
