Yes, this is the case for me too. My ringlets are more define with length, and no matter how long ( or short) my hair is, I don't get a lot of root curl. I've also noticed that I don't get a lot of shrinkage either - even my curliest ringlets are sort of naturally elongated. I think this may be because I'm more a mix of 2c and 3a curls.

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!
