I have 4a/3c and pretty good amount of length. I envy people who can shampoo and condition once a week and be done. I can't do that because of how dry my hair will get. Spritzing helps but three days is max without cowashing or rinsing. I can maybe pull off four if I leave my hair in twists but that's a maybe.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
