Default Hello from Potential Wavy

Hello All! I've been lurking around this forum for the past couple of days and decided to plunge in to tap into some of your expertise. A bit of background:
I'm a 2a...maybe. FIA's 1c, though, describes my current hair perfectly: straight with body wave and one or two visible s-waves (e.g. nape of neck or temples). It's these persistent s-waves (which have, on rare occasion, turned 2c) that make me wonder if there's more wave/curl potential hiding in my hair.
I've been low-poo for just over a year, but may start mixing in some co-washing.
I know I'll be posting lots of questions soon!

Welcome!

Do work out your hair properties, download the free 'Curls on the Go' app if you have a smartphone and read the stickies. Many wavies do better with low-poo than with conditioner only washing, they prefer the volume and bounce.

Welcome! I'm a big fan of lo poo and alternate that with co washing. It sounds as though you've got lots of potential there, enjoy unlocking it!

Thanks for the welcomes! I worked out my properties as follows:
2a, Low Porosity, Fine to Medium Width, Medium Density, APL.

I want to take some photos so you veterans can get a better idea of what I'm working with. Once I've got those, I'll start asking lots of questions! Right now, I'm a little bit overwhelmed with all the variables that play a part in cultivating waves. Looking forward to the options and opinions available in this group!
