Obsessed...

You're definitely not alone!! I'm constantly talking about my hair, thinking about my hair, trying new things... even though I have a fallback routine that produces fairly good results fairly consistently. I hated my hair today and it bugged me all day!

Yeah from your avatar our curl patterns look similar! I can't decide my properties but I'm pretty convinced it's fine, or fine-medium, not very dense, and porous. Mine's just so inconsistent, and it drives me crazy that I can do the exact same routine 2 days in a row and end up with totally different hair! Saturday my hair was wild and riotous and curlier than I've seen in a long time. Nice clumpy bouncy spirals. Today? Same products, limp tangly waves. Whatevs

I completely understand that! Some days my hair is curly, sometimes gentle waves, and sometimes it evn gts straight! With the right products, though, the curly is getting more consistent. I have spirals in th front that turn into wisps as you get to th back. My hair is pretty thick, though, and I don't evn know how to determine porosity or density hahaha. I'll post a pic soon

I bet your hair is very prettiful! I'd love to see pics

Now today I have a mix of tangly waves and sharpie spirals. Go figure. I've gone back and forth on wondering if it's truly dry and been afraid to OC but last night I said eff it and slathered my hair in CJCR, pinned it all up, and sat in a humid bathroom & hot bathtub for 45 mins. Took it down to rinse, and it was the first time in my life I haven't seen wet frizz. I get wet frizz even when it's covered in condish in the shower. I swear I piled this stuff on and I figure one of two things happened - it either soaked up the moisture and needed it, or the condish was so heavy those hairs couldn't have strayed if they wanted to

It's always a guessing game with me and the results are unpredictable and it drives me nuts!
