Sorry if there's already a thread on this but I've noticed that the hair on the right side of my head (specifically the top portion) is curlier than the other side. Is anyone else's hair like this?
Yep, I have a lazy side and a strong side. My left side consistently looks better and has a stronger wave/curl pattern

Mine is like that too. It's curlier on the opposite side of my part, because there is more hair on that side to form lots of thicker curls. I suppose it would even out if I did a middle part, but that usually looks silly on me. So I just accept it.
2c/3a mix and very fine, normal porosity
Shampoo: Loreal EverSleek Sulfate-free (Only 1 or 2x a week)

CoWash Suave Naturals Coconut or VO5 Kiwi Lime Squeeze

Rinse Out: Giovanni 2chic Avocado and Olive Oil or GVPCB


Leave in: More Suave Naturals Coconut or GVPCB Always diluted with water/epsom salt spray

Products: AG Re:coil with EcoStyler Olive Oil gel or HETT gel

Is weaker than the strong side. For me it doesn't matter which way I part, left/right/middle (I do all three depending on my mood), the right side is the weaker side. I figure it's more noticeable to me, as I am my own worse critic
Yep. Mine is most definitely like this. My right side is much curlier than my left.

My own hair actually does extremely well in rainy weather. The rain makes my hair look SO good.


I'm definitely a "curly" 2c. Sometimes curly and sometimes just wavy upper layer with a ringlety under layer. My hair has been thick and coarse since birth. Strawberry blonde in color that can and does change depending on the type and amount of light.


All in all, I'm happy with my hair type but almost for sure think yours is prettier.

I get definition but NO volume. Now all I do is cowash and diffuse, and once a week or so I do a dt. I get way better volume this way and still definition. But no weather protection
I had it too but now sides have changed. Now my left side sucks and my right that is my growing out bangs seem to curl way easier. The left side has started to form twisting curls that get looser at the end.

It was pouring rain yesterday and I actually went outside and stood in it for a while to make my hair look good.

My right side is curlier than my left, and both sides are actually less curly than the back. I'm 3A in the front, with some 2C mixed in (mostly on the left side) , and I'd say mostly 3B in the back. I also have a weird piece at the nape of my neck that is almost straight, and that part feels more "normal" texture than the rest of my fine hair.

3A, a mix of boticelli, corkicelli, and a few s-waves, baby fine, naturally porous, medium/high density

Pre-poo: coconut oil
Co-wash: TJ's Tea Tree Tingle, Sauve Naturals, VO5, As I Am coconut co-wash
Conditioner: TJ's Nourish, Tresseme Naturals, Sauve Naturals coconut, SM Coconut & Hibiscus
LI: KCKT
Styling: DevaCurl Light Defining Gel, HETT Mousse (HG's!)
EcoStyler Krystal (new HG!!!), BRHG
coconut oil or jojoba oil to SOTC
Color treated with demi-permanent color to cover first grays
My left side is curlier than my right. I almost always sleep on my right (I have a severely deviated septum, so it's easier to breathe in that position), so I always wonder if that's a factor.

Both sides are equally curly, but the curls on my left side are less dry, shinier, more defined and a bit longer (!!!), which is kind of frustrating. If only my entire head of curls resembled my left.

3b/c ~ fine ~ high porosity ~ low density

I do too and my right side is curlier as well. I don't think sleeping has much to do with it. In my case, I do wear my hair parted slightly to the side and my underneath layer is curlier. My right hand side might have more "underneath hairs" exposed. However, my hair is only slightly parted to the side. The part is not a "deep side part" at all.
