Hair Biography

Curl Pattern: 2b
Texture: very fine
Porosity: high
Density: thin

Characteristics: Never grown past shoulders,hard to weigh down,very easy to straighten, hard to encourage curls, dry

CG/ModCG/not CG:Mod CG, I low poo 2-3 times per month in winter, weekly in summer.

Hair ingredient likes: Behentrimonium Methosulfate,
Hair ingredient dislikes: Had straw like reaction to several conditioners, many conditioners cause producty frizz, hates epsom salt (adds curl, but drying). jojoba,shea butter, PEG castor oil
Hard/Soft Water:
Hard

HG/Go-to Products: IAgirl's gelatin PT completely changed my hair for the better, Honey (mixed into rinse out), BRHG, Ecostyler Krystal in summer, and coconut oil

Average climate/dew points: North Dakota. Cold to extremely cold and dry in winter, normal to slightly humid in summer

Fall/Winter combos: Humidifier, especially in the bedroom where your hair spends 1/3 of its life. No gylcerin in styling products or leave in. FSG+BRHG
Spring/Summer combos: FSG+ecostyler+BRHG, loves humectants in normal dews

Favorite styling techniques and why: Coconut oil prewash (prevent hygral fatigue, adds moisture when I need a hit) . Modified super soaker method (clumps),Plopping (promotes curls). Pixie curl diffusing (enhances curls) Smasters method. (enhances curls some more, cuts drying time)

Techniques that didn't work and why: Overnight plop (short hair), raking (pull out curls with weak curl patterns), skip curl (one side started unwinding before I was done with the other side. Epic failure.) scrunching with a towel (causes frizz, breaks up clumps)

Hair Twins: Nah, my hair is too weird.
