Beautiful. Can't get my hair to clump that well without a ridiculous amount of tangles.

My first post in a while:

My hair has actually been behaving about 90% of the time, which is a major miracle.

Haha, I don't think it's really biting the bullet. Most curlies here, no matter their regimen, don't use all products of all one brand.

In other words, if the conditioner works, it doesn't...

Not to disenchant you or anything, but I would like to mention that you're unlikely to go from "tight ringlets" (as you have described) to waves, unless you're talking about the crimpy s ones (don't...

Totally with you on the more humid weather. My hair does great in the after-rain weather (though, as dusalocks mentions, the fact that I'm in California might make a difference).

However, my hair...

Is your hair also dry?

Assuming the hair isn't irreparably damaged, try a protein treatment (will help with droopy curls) followed by an intensive deep treatment.

Do you know any of your hair...

So, half a good hair day.

I tried a new mixture today for my DT, which got cut short (but that's an entirely different story).

It was basically TNNM + EVOO + a few drops of jojoba + Honey.

I must have, however, either...

Yes. I love my hair about 99% of the time, and have learned to appreciate it during my teenage years, thanks to my mother (a wavy-haired Asian).

Preferably neither. When you cut your hair wet, unless you know your drying pattern really well, you risk screwing up length estimates and shaping.

When you cut it straight, a similar thing...

I don't know if you were aware of this, but Tresemme Climate Control conditioner is not CG (and therefore, you can't really co-wash with it). In other words, you're not following strict CG. If this...

I consider 2nd day hair basically get up and go hair, with less than 5 minutes of work on it.

I have medium to coarse hair (definitely leaning toward coarse) that is low porosity (for the most...

You probably won't know your true pattern until new hair grows in, if it's truly that damaged. Patience is required.

I have to get clump action before scrunching/plopping/drying, and I imagine that's how most do it. It's really difficult to make your hair clump nicely after it's already mostly dry.
