Ideal Hair

Like Tree132Likes

With so many people posting and commenting on how they are frustrated with their hair, I thought it would be interesting to see pictures of what you consider your ideal hair? What are you working towards and hoping to get when you style your hair?

It doesn't have to be you, it can be someone else's hair you like and makes you aspire to achieve the same look.

Mine is attached. This is the day after my Deva cut and I loved it! I've been trying to recreate it since.

Allie's hair is my ideal!!! But since I will never have that.... the picture attached is pretty darn close. I just want defined, clumped curls.

This.. but not so blonde. I used to have this volume, but I don't anymore. Hoping to reverse that! I'll take her torso too!

3A/2C fine, normal porosity & elasticity, medium high density

Current products:
YTCucs Color Protection Low poo
GVP Conditioning Balm
Random gels - not sure which ones I like, if any at this point!


HG Summer Routine:
poo - TMW Hydrate
RO & LI - Darcy's Pumpkin Seed
Leave in Products: CHSCK & LALMG
PT - CJ RM
DT - EVCO

Currently trying to figure out a winter routine and transition to a less harsh "poo" for summer.

2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Ok here is my "ideal" hair. I also like to say hair crush in general. Unfortunately, she is not famous nor do I know her. She is on instagram lol. I feel bad using her pic, but it's for positivity!

I love how big her hair is and how spirally her curls are. I WANTTT!

When asked what she uses in her hair, apparently all she uses is Mixed Chicks Leave in. And sometimes on 4th day hair, she uses the SM Coconut and Hibiscus line mousse. Talk about keeping it simple!

Ever since I saw this on pinterest, I've been longing for this style and for those curls.


I wish I had tighter curls, it seems like things come easier to those with 3c-ish. Mine pull out so easily
