So if those that tangle a lot prefer slip and those that don't prefer grab, what characteristic(s) makes one tangle more? Maybe that's common denominator.

I think RCC's hair and mine are pretty much opposite in texture and porosity yet we both tangle and get fairy knots.

I don't care about slip or "grab," it makes no difference in how my hair looks or feels.

I often thought it was because my hair was fine and long but rcc is coarse and long and hers also tangles.

Sorry for all my guano, goob
