It's me and my curls ;)

Hi everyone!


I joined this site a while ago and forgot about it. I have never really known how to make my hair happy, and although I tried to care for it as gently as possible with wonderful information from hair communities and websites, it wasn't until recently that is realized what my hair actually needs! It is amazing how differently optimal care for each different hair type can be!


I think I am mostly somewhere around 3a curls in my longest locks (curls up to classic when I let it, stretched it is thigh), though in my shorter locks I find 3b curls. I recently learned by this site that my hair is high porosity
, which explains all of my hair problems and why oils like coconut don't work for me! I already sort of figured out that my hair absorbs super easy and dries and frizzes easily, but I think I now can better figure out what products to use that I know its porosity! It's also mostly medium and fine strands I think. :)


Anyway, so excited to have found this site again and the wealth of information it provides! I hope to find the perfect natural conditioner for my hair that is silicone, sulfate and protein free. :)


Thanks for reading!! :D


ETA: It looks like I already introduced myself a few years ago, I forgot that I had posted some before! Hope this post is okay.
