Got my Curl Genie Profile, only took 6 days!

Got an email last night with my profile, can't believe how fast it came!

Anyway, results:

Texture: Fine (no big surprise there)
Porosity: Normal
Elasticity: Normal

So I need to stay away from heavy emollients & my hair loves protein.. I'm starting to realize that; did a protein treatment last Sunday and my hair was definitely happier.

Some of the products recommended for me I already have, so that's good, but I may try some of the others just to see what I think.

Anywho, just wanted to share to see if anyone else here had the same properties as me!

    i also just got mine. i was surprised to find out my hair has low elasticity. this confuses me and that is usually caused by overprocessing and/or heat damage.
    i stopped coloring my hair in march 2008, so no part of processed hair left, and i rarely use a hair dryer and if i do, it's with a diffuser and only for about 4 minutes. never, ever used a flat iron.....
    so, where does this come from?
    i am going to try to use a tiny bit more protein, they said that might help.

    any suggestions?

    3a, some 2c & 3b, medium texture, porosity normal, low elasticity :-(

    You could try Coloresse Neutral Protein Filler from Sally's. Mix a little with your condish in your hand and see how that goes.

    :) I couldn't believe it when I got the email last night. I mailed it on the 13th, so really, it only took 3-4 days for the results if you count mailing time. The results are 14pgs. long, and I found all the reading to be pretty neat. For $20, I think it was worth it!
