Very helpful, thanks! I'm finally accepting that I have hard water, and the build-up weighs my fine hair down too much. Thanks to this thread, I bought some Burt's Bees baby shampoo and plan to try...

I second the coconut oil! It's the only oil I've tried so far my low porosity hair actually absorbs, and my hair doesn't get weighed down if I only use a couple drops (very fine hair). My hair is so...

This method worked really well for me too! I used a bandanna, then plopped about 15 minutes after scrunching, and my hair was frizz free and shiny. Didn't even need to apply extra product. Thanks for...

I really like Argan oil, but I only use a few drops at a time. I mix 4 or 5 drops with a little water and protein spray in my palm and scrunch it on dry hair, just the ends. I use it sometimes to...

I don't focus on clumping either. I don't mind having less curly hair if I get bigger volume! Plus, now that I've been CG for serial months, my hair is in such good shape that OCing is too easy, and...

Yeah, that thread gave me the idea to try it on slightly damp hair. Seemed like it was only about plopping with fully dry hair.

Plopping almost dry hair

Does anybody else do this? Lately I've diffused almost dry, about 80% or so, then I plop again using the Live Curly Live Free method. Seems to give me extra root volume.

2b or 2c?

I'm pretty sure I've figured out my hair properties, so I thought it would be fun to know my hair type. I think I'm a 2b, but I'm not positive. What do you guys think?
