I've been using the MopTop and Fuzzy Duck lines since the beginning of the year - I love them. Maybe not quite as unusual as some of the more 'popular' brands (like Curl Junkie or Spiral Solutions),...

I have used a few of the Jessicurl products in the unscented versions and to me they just smell slightly herby (open your herb and spice cabinet and give it a sniff - they smell a bit like that). ...

Same as the OP here - my hair's nearly straight on most occasions when wet - and it get curlier and curlier as the day goes on.

I'm normal allergic (you'll see why I say that in the next paragraph) to grass pollen, dust, mold (especially on bread, but any mold will do), penicillin, and sulfa antibiotics. If it's an inhalant,...

I'm very much considering going to something as I should still be here then and it'd make sense to use the opportunity - I may never be this close to an Olympic games again. It'd be kind of silly...

Try a Steamboat (I've heard it called something else as well - can't remember the name):

1 shot Southern Comfort
1 shot lime juice (or lime cordial if you have it)

Top up with ginger ale.

They're both good lines; however, if I had to choose one, I think Curl Junkie would win every time. I've used the majority of both lines, and if my reordering statistics are anything to go by, I...

I think it generally depends on what's in the gel. And even then, even if something doesn't get absorbed, while it's on the hair surface it can do things.

If it were me, I would apply the...

I let my hair go naked pretty often. I don't normally go out with it like that unless I put it up, but I think it's good to go naked once in a while in order to see the 'true' condition of your hair.

+1

I'm a registered democrat. I'm fiscally moderate, but I lean pretty far to the left on social issues. Living in a country that is quite socially liberal has only enforced this.

I love your hair! I'd only get a couple inches off if it were me - just to even things up a little and get rid of any dead ends.

Do you have hard water? Sounds to me like hard-water build up. OC'd hair is usually super soft so I wouldn't expect that.

Holy moly the shrinkage on that one clump! Curious, is it even when it's wet, or is this a case of a random bit of hair growing slower than everything else?

Hmm - have you thought of talking up the idea of cutting curly hair dry and by curl to your current hairdresser? A lot of them are quite amenable to it, particularly if they know you well.

I know doing the technique I've bolded can cause curls to 'split' - so if you're still growing any of that out, it could certainly cause problems (it seems to stop curls from clumping properly). ...
