Hi everyone,

Lately I have preferred having fluffy curls/hair rather than having perfect curl definition and and no frizz. I still get quite a lot of definition and ringlets, but I prefer to fluff them out and enjoy the volume and embrace the frizz.

So I was interested in seeing who enjoys fluffier hair and who can't stand it and prefers perfect definition and no frizz.
3A/3B - Fine - Medium Density
Porosity ~ Medium/High
LOC: KCKT-Almond Oil-Devacurl Styling Cream
Hair length - APL
Short term goal: BSL
Long term goal:Waist Length
I prefer the middle ground. I have only 2a/2b hair, so if it gets too fluffy, there is hardly any curl. But when I have really good curl definition, boy, is my hair flat! I do like that occasionally, if I'm going for a very elegant look or something, but I aim for the middle: some undefined fluff with some definition.

I would prefer curl definition, but usually end up with fluff 😞 At the moment I leave it like that because it disguises my loads of 2 inch long baby hairs 😮

I have to have some fluff in my waves because I'm kind of lower density. The fluffier the waves, the more hair it appears that i have. I'm trying to figure out how to get fluffy waves with more volume but less frizz. It seems impossible to achieve all of those at the same time without a curling iron.

I like both. It will be nice to be able to have both. Right now because of my density and length I usually go for fluffy hair. I remember when I first became natural I used to hate frizz. It was all about definition. Lol glad I'm no longer that way.

I don't seem to have a choice in the matter - I've never been able to get perfectly defined curls, I always have some frizz/fluff. It's taken me a long time to give up the goal of frizz free curls but I've learnt a level of acceptance now and, like ttoosday, because my hair is low density some fluffiness works well.

I go both ways. Probably more defined in the winter bc I'm trying to keep the moisture in. In the summer I use lighter products with less hold and just let it do it's thing. I'm really trying to embrace my frizz and just love my hair whatever it does, which is a bit of a struggle, bc I'm kind of a perfectionist.

As of late, I have been embracing the frizz for the volumes sake. My hair can become very flat and body-less if I aim for definition, so currently I'm seeking volume - but not too much or I'll disappear in a giant puff of wavy hair! Sort of in between is right for me.

Yeah, with fine, thin hair, no fluff at all just looks stringy and flat. I need *some* fluff, not a ton, but some.
CG since May 1, 2016
3a (at the moment), fine, thin, highly porous, no elasticity (bleach and heat damage)
most luck so far with KCKT and KCCC with a little jojoba oil to SOTC *tried diffusing! wow!*
added CK for high humidity
SM Weightless Texture Spray for refreshing
gelatin PT 2x per week, DT 3x per week
I prefer big and fluffy; I embrace the frizz.

I love the big fluff look. I can still have some great definition with it and I feel that it makes my hair look at its best.i get the most compliments too when it's like that :-D

I would like the best of both worlds and have the volume with no frizz but I think that's just gonna be a dream lol.

Ahh yes took me so long to figure it out actually but I much prefer using no product and rocking the fluff. I let it air dry with nothing in it and then rub in just some coconut oil or serum for moisture/scent and to get rid of a little of the frizz. But I hate the way my hair feels with product in it. I hate anything sticky or hard. And I hated spending so much money on products that let me down!
