What I've learned

Being on this board has taught me so many things.

- To love my curls as they are, and to enhance them, rather than trying to get a tighter curl pattern. I have learned to embrace my chunky curls, and whereas I hoped to get more curly hair when I came here, I know simply want to make the curls I have look better, shinier, healthier instead of changing them.
- What my hair likes and dislikes. I already knew it disliked sulphates and silicones, but I had no idea about polyquats and heavy ingredients. It likes water and protein.
- How my hair behaves. It gets weighed down extremely easily.
- My hair loved FSG, but its crunchiness and loooong drying time were negatives for me, as was the fact that I had to make a new batch every single week and the difficult application (in the sense that it all fell on the floor).
- My hair loves KCCC and it does enhance my curls in every way I want it to. People compliment me more than ever, because my hair looks so healthy. People even ask me what I use. I like the consistency, the smell, and just in general what it does. I still have not nailed the perfect amount and I also need some more hold, because some days it becomes less defined and slightly elongated after a few hours. With regards to elongation, I discovered that my curls are more elongated when I smooth on KCCC, then scrunch it in, compared to when I skip the smoothing step. My hair prefers the latter.
- KCKT works great as a detangler and reduces the amount of hair I shed. It's light enough for me to use as a LI, which leads to me not having any crunchiness from KCCC.

Accepting and embracing my curls as they are is the best lesson so far.

I have learnt so much that my mind still boggles!

I've also learnt to embrace the curl, instead of fighting them with hot torture devices and rough handling, accept that they will do what they want anyway.

I've also learnt to persist with different methods etc because sometimes you win

But most of all - it's not a curse - and there is nothing prettier than a head full of curls - and it's possible after being here to actually know what it's like to be jealous of curls!

I know what you mean! There are so many gorgeous curls here. Especially considering that I still do not get consistent results, I know what it's like to be jealous, even though I want everyone to have gorgeous curls. Everyone includes me
