Different curl/texture on one side

undineundine Posts: 2Registered Users
Hi all,

I'm on my 5th day of CG, and have definitely noticed a difference in my hair. Right now I'm using DevaCurl (figured I'd start slow at first).

What I've found is that my hair seems to have a lot of different textures going on. When I plop and then scrunch it with gel when it's wet, my hair is 2c.

When I plop and let it air dry without product/scrunching, I've noticed that the left side of my hair is curlier than the right--more of a 2b/2c on top with 2a underneath, whereas the right has 2a on top and 2b underneath.

Does anyone else have this? Is it just a beginning CG thing, or is this type of variation normal for 2s?

I don't really like it--my 2a side is frizzing a lot more than the 2b side.

    Since you mention frizz it could be more damaged than the other side or you could lay on that side.more than the other or simply it's a looser curl patern.
    Unfortunately curly hair is not even and you will find that even that each wash day could vary from the next or the previous.
    I would say that is too soon to determine your curl patern. I started as a 2b myself and my hair is close to 3a on some parts.
