    LOL Dusalocks, exactly! I compared caring for my hair to trying to feed a baby on some other thread: it can't talk, but it sure can express what it likes and dislikes.

    I use waaaay too many metaphors. It comes from being a tutor and TA. People glom on to metaphors when an idea eludes them, and different people require different metaphors to have that "click" moment. Therefore, I always have two or three for any given situation. Hair is just full of metaphor material!

    haha, this is so right! I've sometimes thought of it as a very temperamental pet, but the baby comparison is much better! And just when you think you've set it up to manage without attention for a short while, it can't cope! Mine is like a child that won't sleep through, even though it should be doing by now.
    UK based wavy :hello2:

    Mostly waves, but curls and straight bits too!
    Fine to medium, high porosity, medium density, very low elasticity
    Highlights damage (growing it out), seems to like protein and need lots of moisture.

    Cleanse - CJDF, trying out low poos ; Co wash- Uk chemist brands, Urtekram Rose or Aloe, Hairveda Amala Cream Rinse; RO - varies, Tigi Moisture Maniac, Desert Essence Coconut ; Leave in - Keracare natural textures; Sealant - argan oil
    Trying out new things, still looking.
