Thanks for your experience! So the 'bumps' or whatever I'm feeling can possibly be kinkiness or texture rather than open cuticles? Is that what you're saying?

I do find it hard to see my hair as being fine. It looks so huge to me yet then again, it doesn't act like coarse hair at all. I'm hoping that using Aubrey Organics GPB will confirm whether it's fine or not (as in, if it REALLY likes it, I assume my hair is fine and if it's okay with it but not craving the protein, then perhaps I have medium width hair, but I suspect the first).
