3a, high porosity

jamielynn18jamielynn18 Posts: 8Registered Users
I have 3a high porosity hair and I have noticed that one side of my hair curls into loose spirals of all sizes and the other side is wavy like type 2 hair. Is there anything I can do to help the other side curl? I have tried plopping, pixie drying, more product/less product etc. The only thing I can think of is I side part my hair and the side it's parted on is more curly. Maybe the thinner side is weighted down by product?

Any advice would be much appreciated curly girls!

    I have the same issue. Waterlily on Youtube has some excellent videos with ways to encourage curl uniformity. She is a member here also, but I'm not sure she uses the same name here.

    Good luck with this! Please post back if you come up with any suggestions.
    2/c Coarse hair med. density.
    Highly porous. Color over grey.
    I love all the Curl Junkie products. Still experimenting with gels and curl creams. Still hoping for 2nd day hair....

    So I dropped every product I was using and only use cantu Shea butter leave in conditioning repair cream. I am white but it is in the ethnic hair section. I apply it by scrunching it in and I apply it generously.

    My hair is not weighed down, or oily looking but it is however mega curly with absolutely zero frizz. I will attach a picture of my day two hair using just this product which was 6.49 at walgreens.

    Funny story, I actually bought this for my horse and it smelled amazing and worked so well I took it home! I'm attaching a before and after of her hair too lol. Second pic of me you can see even the back curled better... Pic of day one hair to come probably Saturday :p

    And I no longer brush dry, only wet. I also dry with a tshirt and only use a boars hair brush when I do brush my hair

    Mine does that too. It's getting a little better with some help from alternating protein treatment and deep conditioner.
