I think to some degree it really depends on how curly/loopy and consistent your curl pattern is. For example, last night on the train, I saw a woman with absolutely gorgeous 3c/4a skinny curls. They...

I'm looking for a new CG-friendly styler, probably a gel or lotion. Despite being low-porosity and on the fine side, my hair hates all proteins except silk and loves humectants. Products with aloe...

Back in my day, when you could only find black lipstick the month before Halloween and we walked our pointy boots to school uphill both ways... Wait, no, wrong anecdote.

Lime juice worked really well for me as an ACV substitute. Eventually, though, I found a poo bar that worked for me with just conditioner and no need for a rinse.

My hair retains water like nothing else (when it was long, it literally took days to dry fully), so I feel your pain. This is my current styling/drying routine, which is the best I've found so far:

This is really interesting. I agree wholeheartedly about razoring, but I actually really like what thinning shears just on the last 3"-4" do for my curls.

How do you deal with long drying times?

My hair takes forever to dry. When it's cold and humid like it is right now, it can take a full 24 hours before it's completely dry, and even when it's warm and dry out, it takes a good 6-8 hours,...

Hmm. I'm unsure where I fit into her new curl classification. I generally consider my hair to be wavy, but my hair was seriously not straight as a child. In fact, I had cherub curls as a child, and...

In my experience, the clarifying ones (I've used both Vanilla Mint and Kiwi Lime) are lighter than the other ones and the Moisture Milks line is heavier than the Naturals or Tea Therapy lines.

Too long to pineapple
