Stringy curls...

Like Tree1Likes

I have no advice because I've come to the conclusion that this is just how my hair behaves.

I prefer to call them "skinny" curls.

I know this doesn't apply to everyone, but raking gives my stringy curls. I have to smooth and then scrunch in products.

Doesn't matter if I apply product to soaking wet hair, they're already formed into these skinny clumps. Obviously mine is a new thing, I don't know how to get my thicker ringlets back. In the back, I still get fairly thick clumps, but on the sides, they're more but skinnier.

I went through this about a year ago. I think I was using too many products with glycerin. Everything I used seemed to have glycerin. I did a sulfate poo wash, protein treatment, moisturizing treatment and things were much better. I cut out glycerin in my products for about 6 weeks, then slowly reintroduced them, but now mix up my products some have glycerin some don't. When I see my curls starting to get a little limp, I do a protein then moisture treatment and it helps.

Kind of a dumb question, but do skinny curls look worse than fat curls for any reason? Is it just a matter of preference? I know what looks better by feel but I'm looking for a visual reference.

They were tiny and sproingy-looking and just lovely. My hair, on the other hand, tends to look stringy, unwashed, and pretty much exactly like Hollywood-styled "bad hair" if I end up with skinnier clumps in my 2b canopy over my 3a underlayer.
