Red face Anyone have 2c-3c hair textures??

Anyone else have multiple hair textures and porosities? My hair ranges from 2c in the back of my hair which is also the coarse part of my hair a mixture of 3a & 3b in the front and sides. And 3c in a small section on the right side of my head close to crown area. I have low to medium porosity and high in the back. Please help thank you

It's common to have multiple textures with curly hair. The porosity can be; however, it can be dependent on how you've treated it in the past--color, highlights, heat damage, etc.

Other then that, I'm not sure what you are asking.

Default products?

I'm just trying to find out what kind of products can be helpful w/o having to buy different things for my different textures. I could put a deep conditioner in, a leave in and a gel the way my hair reacts to that is backwards to my coarse 2c hair in the back.

Oh, I'm right there with you! I have 3A in the front but then toward the back I'm more 3B. Products in my signature all work great for me, even with my different hair textures

I have a range of 3a to 3c curls which follow a general pattern of getting curlier the closer to the centre of my crown they are, but also have a few isolated, extremely small sections which are barely wavy. While I understand and agree that hair characteristics (texture, i.e., fine to coarse, porosity, elasticity, and density) and dew point are more important than curl pattern, I did find, when we had different forum sections for the varieties of type 3 curls, that the information in the 3b section seemed most helpful to me. I suspect that's largely because it covered average curls (vs. wavy or kinky/fractal hair).
