thin to medium
S-curvy mostly. Gets weighed down easily. (Gets curly and frizzy when the humidity is high). My hair dries very quickly and is easy to straighten.
CG/Mod CG/not CG:
Mod CG. I am okay with sulfates and cones occasionally. I blow-dry sometimes.
Hair ingredient likes:
Silk Amino Acids, lavender oil
Hair ingredient dislikes:
too much glycerin, castor oil, or polymers (polyquats) weigh my hair down
Suave Tropical Coconut Conditioner, GFTN,
Curl Junkie Smoothing Gellie
DevaCurl Set It Free
Spray, Garnier Fructis Wonder Waves Spray, homemade lavender mist, Hand Dry Hair Gloves
Average climate/dew points:
Humid in the late spring/summer, dry in the fall/winter (four seasons)
usually low-poo, conditioner, leave-in, gel
usually low-poo, conditioner, leave-in, spray gel. Sometimes I just spray in GF Wonder Waves spray and scrunch. I like to refresh with lavender mist during the day.
Favorite styling techniques and why:
One of these 3 methods:
1. scrunch using Hand Dry Hair Gloves (similar to a microfiber towel) until about 75% dry, then air-dry.
2. scrunch a few times with my hands, then Pixie Curl Diffuse until about 75% dry, then air-dry.
3. scrunch a few times with my hands, then air-dry.
I always blow-dry my bangs out.
Techniques that didn’t work and why:
Regular diffusing tends to make my hair frizz. Plopping gives me less-defined curls. Super soaker method gives me tighter curls, which I don't like on me.
Anyone with similar hair?
Hair Type - wavy/curly, fine texture, thin/medium density
