Hi. So here's my short story.. :)
I'm not new to all of these co washing things.. I did give it a try last year I think and i gave up because i couldnt find the right things for my hair, I had product limitations (i live in the philippines so there are very few CG friendly products) and i cant find the book here so i lost hope and pulled out my straightener and curling iron.. :(
but i'm willing to give it another try.. so uhm can anybody please help me ? Maybe you can suggest products, Methods and what not ?

My hair type is anywhere between 2a and 2b with a little bit of 2c maybe.
Porosity is over porous i think.
texture is normal to coarse but i think i have fine straight hair at the very bottom at the nape.
and im protein confused. lol
Plus im avoiding clumpy-curls.
i really hope you could help me :) i want to hug my natural curls.. oh and also what i've been doing lately is letting my hair airdry then setting flexi rods or curlers and sleep with it over night. haha that's all. Thank you :)

    The way we define terms on this site:
    coarse- large diameter of an individual hair
    fine- small diameter of an individual hair
    thin- few hairs per square inch, ponytail measures less then 2 inches around
    thick large number of hairs per square inch, ponytail measures more then 4 inches around

    Let us know which of these terms defined this way describe your hair and we will recommend products. I've heard that Australia has few CG products, so it doesn't surprise me that the Philippines doesn't have may either. Hopefully we will be able to help you figure something out. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)
