So basically, my talk with MaryPat from livecurlylivefree -

She is my 3c/fine-haired/coily hair twin.

She said she uses Suave and combines it (half and half) with a protein-heavy LI - with a gel like LA Looks

She uses palmfuls of LI - I said I just graduated from the school of thought that we had to use nickel-and-dime sizes. My hair needs palmfuls!

We talked about "pixie knots" and hair needing more moisture (right now with coconut curlada I have virtually no pixie knots!)

With tight coils, cuticle lifts more easily, lose moisture

She uses protein every time she wets hair

Loves BRHG also loves beauticurls as a LI

She uses light oils like coconut - might put some in ends at night and pineapple

I think that was about it - but I really don't think I can use protein. I'm curious what others have to say though about coconut curlada -
3b/fine/normal porosity/normal elasticity

LOVES behentrimonium methosulfate
(don't ask me to pronounce that!)

Want to grow it long again!
And simply want to figure out this hair of mine!
