see, I'm not even picky enough to just want corkscrews. DEL's hair would be MORE than perfect, but in reality just as unobtainable for me heh. My hair is fine-med and med texture. My hair will never wave up like hers.

So whatever, my new goal is consistency! lol.

Not a bad goal.

I think one of the hard parts, aside from finding what ingredients and combos work best, is learning what our genetic curl set-point is. I mean, curls can be enhanced or lengthened out with various products and methods and such. But, learning what our curl pattern really is, especially if one has to transition or come off lots of time of chronic sub optimal hair health, can be a challenge and can really take some time to see.
