New curly finally able to post!

For a while, I couldn't post here or comment or anything because NC would log me out as soon as I left the main page, but it seems to be fixed now! :D
Anywho, I'm a CG newbie, started Oct 4th 2013, and so far I'm loving the results! I think I'm probably 3A with a little bit of 2C in the back, with high porosity hair (the strands feel kinda bumpy and my hair dries fairly quickly...), high density, and I'm going to guess medium texture 'cause my hair seems to be coarser than most people I know, but I live in Iceland, where a lot of people have baby fine hair and my strands don't seem THAT thick... Looking forward to learning more things as I go! ^_^ I may post pictures someday, when I find my camera...

    Welcome! I'm not sure we have any other posters from Iceland. How does the weather there affect your curls? Is there ever heat and humidity? What do you do during very cold, windy weather for your curls?:hello2:
    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....
    Every day is a gift :flower:

    Thank you for the welcomes!
    It doesn't get very hot here (No, seriously, the hottest ever recorded was 30.5C, that was in 1939 and wasn't even in Reykjavík)You're lucky if it gets over 20C three times in the summer :P), but it's kind-of humid, even the winters are strangely humid, 'cause island climates are weird, I guess? It can make -1C feel like -10C would in a dry climate >.< It can get pretty dry in the winter at times, though, and then I just make sure to moisturize a lot and deep condition more. It's pretty windy here, so I tend tomeither wear a hat or just let my hair blow around and go crazy :P It's fairly damp, but not mega humid most of the year, so I don't think I experience as much seasonal changes as a lot of other curlies do. I do have a problem with what to do in the mornings when I have to take the bus to school, because if I need to take a morning shower on the cold days, my hair tends to freeze while I wait Dx I should probably try to get a hairdryer+diffuser, but until then I'm just going to have to do second day hair when it's cold, or just put it in a ponytail if it's really bad, 'cause I'd rather not get pneumonia :P
    My main problem is definitely getting good products here, though, for some reason living in a country with a population of 320,000 kind-of lessens the variety of hair products you can find, and taxes+shipping would be really high if I'd order online D:

    3a, medium width?, high porosity, high density, normal elasticity.
