Wink What's your Curl pattern and how do you manage it?

I'm transitioning and I've been getting relaxers for a very LONG time, so I don't know what to expect. I just want to know what you curl pattern is and how do you make it VERY CURLY and GORGEOUS...

thanks my fellow curlies, XOXOXOXOXO

Pattern really doesn't matter, overall. Your hair's properties (ie. thickness, porosity, elasticity, and possibly density) are really the key to unlocking your curls. Once you know your properties, it's easier to find the products that work best for your hair. I fumbled around for a month or two before I found out my hair properties (using the Live Curly Live Free Curl Wizard). Once I had that, everything changed and I started going in the right direction for me. There really is no one answer to everyone's hair issues. We're all on different paths to the perfect curls. LOL! Good luck!!

Thank you so much for the compliment. I've only been at it since last fall - around the end of September / early October!
