Default Got my analysis results

I got my Komaza analysis results.

Normal porosity
Thick hair (ranging from .092 to .109 mm)
Elasticity - very strong
Curl pattern - ranging from 2B to 3A (although I really think it's 2A-3A)

She kept repeating that my hair was very healthy and very strong. She had to work hard to find breakage or lifted cuticles.

She doesn't really like cowashing and suggested I alternate water rinses with low poo. She said I should continue with my pre-poos of conditioner/coconut oil/honey. She suggested a mild protein treatment once a month to retain the strength and use a leave-in with a little protein. She uses their protein treatment and it looks great to me.

I told her what I like to use and she suggested applying my leave-in first, alone, and then topping with my combo FSG/BRHG.

She also said my hair is healthy enough that silicone wouldn't be drying to it and that I could use a finishing serum (cones+oil) as a final layer to help with the frizz since I low-poo regularly.

We talked for 45 minutes and she gave me a lot of information. All in all I'm very satisfied with their service.

I thought thick referred to density? And F/M/C was individual strand thickness? Urgh, I'm confused (again)!

I would love to have a Komaza analysis. I wish they would open it up again. I guess they have quite a backlog to get through. Sounds like you got some great information--and congrats on having such healthy hair!

Yeah, she called the width fine, medium, thick. She said she thought of coarseness as the feel of the hair, not the measured width. I think my hair is coarse as well. It feels coarse (not soft and smooth) to me.

Very cool! I need to do this although I think my main properties are pretty straightforward. I'm definitely high porosity (highlights, coloring) and fine-medium (different areas of my head vary). Not 100% sure about curl pattern just because it fluctuates with the weather so much.

OK, gotcha. I think that's really more descriptive anyway, and agree that coarseness isn't really applicable to strand thickness.
