Default A lonely soldier

Look what my friend found on the back of my head. If only even half my hair would do this.

Wow! That shows your hair has the potential for curling more. Are you on CG? And if so, how long has it been? My own hair was wavy, perhaps just a little more than yours, but when I moved to S. FL from DE (a good while ago) it got a little curlier and after I started CG it curled some more. I still have to encourage my curls to form in the back as they tend to relax when I apply product(s), so I usually have to use my "bowl" diffuser to push the hair up.

Your pic reminded me of a post many years ago of a lady that clarified using grapefruit juice instead of a lemon because that's what she had at home and her hair formed one perfect spiral either on the back or to one side.

How funny about the grapefruit. Yes I'm cg. Just over a year. I keep hoping it'll continue to improve but I think there's only so much I can get.

We'll see what it does this summer. *usually* we have quite a bit of humidity and high dews. It's been soooooooooo dry this winter. Along about January it was like I had completely different hair. I was so upset until I realized my hair needed more mega moisturizing because of months of continuous negative dews.

Moisture definitely has a lot to do with the hair's ability to curl or not, and with each change of season most of us need to adjust our routine, we may either need to change or add products or apply less or more of some.
