So I've been hearing a lot about "plopping" hair after a shower...what the heck is that? Also, what is porosity and how do I find out what mine is? How can I be 100% sure that I have the right type? I took the quiz and think I'm a 3A, but I'm not sure. And what does it mean to have "Botticelli" hair? Help!

When you first start, it's really helpful to read the stickies at the top of the forums. There's A LOT of information that will "translate" the terms, acronyms, etc. While the search function isn't the best, it's a good way to look up information.

Here's the link to the sticky about techniques TECHNIQUES LINKS: SuperSoaker,Spritz&Condish,Plopping,Frizz,Clipping IceQueen, etc

Type is less important because it's transient--depends on weather, products, technique, etc. Hair properties are the more important aspect for choosing ingredients/products--rather then hair type. Here's a ling to help you with yours: Curly Hair Basics | Live Curly Live Free

Botticelli was a famous Italian painter. He painted a lot of woman with a certain type of curl--loose corkscrews (somewhere around 3a/b)--that are called Botticelli curls.
