Beware of the metal flip-snap shut comb clips on them as they tend to cut/break hair. And the damage is near the roots where you clip them. Nice as a change but I'd not use them often (or at all if...

I picked the name because my hair does a lot of zigazaging rather than coiling! "Noodles" also came to mind but it isn't terribly appealing as a name!

How gorgeous! I would not chop off those curls if I were you, maybe just trim it to a U shape rather than the V. I get a W shape that is horrid so I do have to trim sometimes! Very beautiful.

I too am thinking about the big chop though I'd go for half way between nape and bra strap length when dry. That is me though, I am so chicken! Seriously long hair is a lot of work but it has...

What I do is wet my hair with tap water first, then apply a bit of oil or conditioner especially on the ends. Not too much though as you can get a oil slick forming around you that does not look...

Very true, many products don't work together for sure. Don't know why it would dry hair out though. Could it be the stiffer feeling gel gives might be what you are feeling in your hair?

Thanks again!

I'm back. Sorry for the wait.

I get so many people saying to me "Don't you dare ever cut your hair". So I am still up on the chop off idea but it certainly has become a lot of work time-wise. ...

Maybe a trim, some layers and lots of DT's and PT's to care for your hair (especially the canopy) would help. It does take patience and if you are not following the Curly Girl method, that is...
