Do you feel the hair type forum should be consolidated and do away with the sub-categories?
I'm cool with having 2,3,and 4, but without the subtypes the way the 2 board is right now.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.

Yes, there are too many forums. The search function works. We don't need a forum for every tiny detail. Do the work and search.

I wish we had a sticky thread in the general hair forum - "what's my hair type." Like in the 4a forum. You go in, post a pic, get an answer, & be done with it. I totally get curl type is a fun tidbit to know but I'm tired of the 15 new "what's my type???" threads per day.
fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

I rarely, if ever, answer the "what's my type questions." Maybe to say that hair properties are more important and give them a link for that. If people would stop answering, maybe folks would stop asking. As a behaviorist, it's always taught that you don't reward "inappropriate" behavior, LOL!

I also wish people would use the search function. For a while, we'd tell posters that there was a current thread on the subject and give the link. I digress from the topic--sorry.
