Hair Biography

Curl Pattern: 2c
Texture: fine-medium
Porosity: high (due to previous years of heat damage)
Density: medium
Elasticity: normal
Characteristics: no root curl (but I'm ok with it, my hair has such loose waves that it actually looks "right" this way)

CG/ModCG/not CG: CG recently discovering I need shampoo once-in-a-while (grocery store run needed for a silicone-free poo)

Hair ingredient likes: honey, ACV, coconut oil on ends only
Hair ingredient dislikes: coconut oil on scalp (I have to use really harsh shampoo to get it out otherwise)

Hard/Soft Water: I don't know! I'm sure I have awful hard water at my dorm.

HG/Go-to Products: Suave Naturals Refreshing Tangerine, GFTN, homemade FSG, HEBE, LA Looks Sport Gel

Average climate/dew points: Cincinnati weather, frequently humid (current March dew point is 31 F)

Fall/Winter combos: Suave on dry hair (soaks right in!)
Spring/Summer combos: only been CG for three months, so we will see once it gets warmer what I end up doing!

Favorite styling techniques and why: super-soaker method to air-dry, straightening my bangs to match the rest of my roots and to get the "side-swept" look
Techniques that didnít work and why: plopping gives me smaller clumps that don't work with my looser S curl pattern, diffusing frizzes me up

Hair Twins: would love to find one yet!!
