Non clumpy, skinnny curls, s-curls? Come on in!

Am I the only one who gets what I call "helix curls"?? My s curls turn into ringlets, and sometimes two individual curls that ended up drying in opposite directions get twisted together and look like strands of DNA!
high porosity, fine texture

Well I have extremely thick 3c hair and it's corkscrew in most places but in a few places looks like this s-wave pattern. But I would say most of it's corkscrew.. and I can get clumps but I actually like the non-clump separated curl look a better.

I don't know if I get clumps because my hair is really thick or what..but it does clump...but I separate those.
I get those double helix looking curls too, sometimes I separate the two curls if it's looking odd.

I have corkscrew curls consistently...but man are they skinny.

I have long Shirley Temple ringlets the kind little girls would die for -- that's back and sides - front and top is a little less curly so picture that. I try, I try, I try to work with gels and products, but they are still there. Oh well, on the good ship Lollipop is my them song LOL!!
Are you guys getting ones like these? I have tons of them. Skinny and not really corkscrewy. Shoot, that's most of mine. The back of head shot is all like that.

Mine look like that, only a little tighter. Mainly, those are the ones around my face. The clumps are a little bigger. From the crown back, the curls get super skinny and much tighter...3c/4a-ish.

RCC- Yes! Exactly like that. And nearly my whole head is full of curls like the one in your previous post. They're stuck in between, but I love them anyway.

Some products make my waves skinnier than others.... KBB milk/nectar/SS all made for the skinnies, as did KCKT as a leave-in. Too much BRHG will make skinnies too!

But I do have a couple of places where the S pattern reverses itself, which annoys the crud out of me, LOL! Oh well.



Hair is best when wabi-sabi.

This is an interesting thread. I also think sometimes wavy smaller S curls can be corkscrew curls that just got so long they stretched out like a slinky. A good example of this is Terri from http://tightlycurly.com

Her hair when short it's much tighter, when long it grows looser with corkscrews right at the tip that suggest her waves are from length.

Good thread. My clumps, when I can get them are always messy. And it is such a struggle to get them. I'm getting big muscles from endless scrunching. I just wasn't meant to have fat curls.
2/c and some 3A. Modified CG.
Protein sensitive
Highly porous. Color over grey.
Best 1st day method: Super Soaker

Sometimes try roller sets - classic glamor but I prefer my curls.

*raises hand* Hi, my name is Rhonda and I'm a non-clumper!

Never, ever, ever has my hair clumped. It is always in strings. I can even try to diffuse in clumps, but nope, they refuse. I've learned to just go with it, and love it the way it is.

Mine do not corkscrew, boy do I wish they would! How cool that would look! C'est la vie I guess.

I can keep a corkscrew, but only short. The best corkscrews I had was when I have a dry length of 3-6 inches. But, hearing people sing songs from Annie when I have my hair at that length is annoying.




I'm curious to see curl shape on the rest of you too! It's fantastic learning material.

I am an inconsistent clumper. Some days, I get chunky curls; other days, skinny ones; some days my hair is wavy, and just when I think "oh, I've got wavy, not curly hair," it curls.

Sign me up in the non-clumpy, skinny & s-curls club!

I have major clump envy from those whose heads are covered with them. I also have major wave envy from those who are solid wavies. I guess I feel like a curly without a country, or curl category, as it were. lol My hair actually has only 2 super clumps. They are always hidden in the undermost layer, one behind each ear. They are as fat as sausages and when properly moisturized, can increase in size and clumpiness as the day wears on. My shorter layers can corkscrew, while the back is mainly s-curls.

I did attempt the supersoaker method, but to no avail. I did also purchase a Denman brush and I do like that as it seems to encourage more curls and even distribution of product and curls. Any clumps that do form, quickly disappear as I scrunch the water out with my t-shirt towel. Oh well. I have learned to just accept and embrace. what I have and admire others from afar.

I like what was said earlier. No one thinks "Oh, she has skinny/stringy curls" when we look at another poster. But, we think it on ourselves while we admire the same type of curl on another.

Clumpy skinny curls here...

I have multi-personality hair. I have some really fat curls and then some that go off on a tangent.
