This confused me because at first I thought people weren't replying but then I realized the issue is that bold doesn't show up on my phone. Better to use asterick like Depressed Curls.

Actually the headline had me thinking you'd help me find a man. LOl

I try to balance lower priced and higher priced items so my hair budget doesn't get completely out of control.

Great idea to start this on the general hair board!

Actually, I think finding a true match has a lot to do with ethnicity.

That's the biggest myth in hair care. It has nothing to do with what you need.

What makes you think that?

redcelticcurls 09-30-2012 07:35 PM

Hair care is done by things like coarse vs fine and porosity. To a lesser extent, numerical type plays a role. I use 'black' products. Are they not supposed to work on me because I'm White with type 3 hair? There are Black type 4s who use 'white' products. Being shunted into product based on race or ethnicity isn't going to necessarily give you the best hair care options.

ITA, your hair properties are what determines what is best for hair, not ethnicity. Which is why there is no such thing as "bi-racial hair".
