Thanks ladies!

I'm interested in trying Sweet Curls Eilxirs--that's definitely new since I was last here. And I'll have to learn more about hot curling brushes-- sounds intriguing.

I agree with others--I'd say 2c/3aish. And I think we're hair twins!

What was your routine pre-CG?

How are you applying your products now?

My guess would be that your hair is getting weighed down and/or that your styling products don't have enough hold.

I've always thought of her as a curly, but I agree her curl pattern is somewhat different from the traditional 3a. It seems like her hair spirals but forms a loose helix instead of a circular loop,...

A couple things you said make me think you may have some kind of build-up on your hair, which is causing it to feel dry.

I'd abandoned KCCC a while back because it was leaving me OC'd, but I have used it a few time lately with decent results. I think it's too heavy to use daily on my fine hair, but it's a good option...

I've come across a couple of your posts in the past few days and I would be willing to bet big bucks that your hair needs protein. Whenever my fine hair can't hold its shape, gets fuzzy, falls limp,...
