Does anyone else have a favorite curl?

Or am I just weird?

There's one particular curl right by the side of my face that I think is so pretty and lovely and I wish the rest of my hair looked like that at all times ... Anybody else?
2a/b (really thick but sort of fine with pretty weak waves), medium-to-fine texture, normal porosity (I think). Doesn't seem to like protein.

Favorite products: Kinky-Curly Knot Today, Kinky-Curly Curling Custard, Curl Junkie Curls in a Bottle, Curl Junkie Curl Rehab, Curl Junkie Curl Assurance Smoothing Lotion, Shea Moisture Curl and Style Milk, homemade flaxseed gel.

Still looking for a cleanser I like. :dontknow:

    HAHA yes!!!!!one particular curl in front of my ear is this perfect ringlet every time! It frustrates me that only a few curls are really that perfect though!

    All the time! There's a really thick one underneath near my ear that always dries perfectly wavy.
    The curls near my face are the best because all of the hair there is fine. They're always so soft.

    Lol! This is too funny! I too have a favorite curl; the right side above my ear - always forms a beatiful 3a/3b ringlet no matter what. If only the rest of my hair would follow suit :)
    2c/3a, botticelli/wavy/'swavy (huh?)
    fine, dense, normal porosity/elasticity, dry climate
    My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

    My favorite perfect ringlet - right in front of my left ear. I actually get my hair cut in such a manner that it shows off that particular ringlet.


    Though my favorite ringlet does not appear in the same area as my favorite group of curls on my head (top of my head). I always found that odd.

    Very interesting about these curls around the ears! I don't have 1 favorite curl, but I have a favorite part of my curls-- the ends, many of them are perfect, thick corkscrews. I don't know why they can't be that way all the way from my roots, I love how 3-D they are!

    i, too, love the way some of my ends spiral. makes me wonder if i'm paying too much attention to the ends when applying product and my roots are all "hey! what about me!"...

    my right side top seems to curl better than the rest of my hair. i love them. may also be product application issues. if i had the money, i'd be at the salon every week so they could style for me.

    I knew I could count on y'all to make me feel less weird, haha. In "real life" if I went around going, "Look at this curl! Isn't it so pretty?" everyone would think I was craaaazy.
