Hi lovelies! My name is Marion, and I'm brand new here and just wanted to say hello <3. I am VERY new to curly/wavy haircare, as I have been rocking the pixie cut or the bob most of my life and only in the last two years have started growing it out and learning more about it!

I have very big, loose waves that start at about my ears (hence how I never knew it was curly until now fff), and my hair type is very fine, extremely dense, and high porosity. Hair dressers always comment on how much hair I have, it's a little insane! The strands themselves are fine and soft there's just a metric ton of them on my head.

I seem to have a fairly unusual combination of factors in my hair, so have had a hard time finding the right haircare system for myself. My hair is very dry, but also prone to be weighed down since it's so fine, and I admit to being a fan of big hair. So I am trying to find the perfect balance of treating my parched locks while not weighing them down. I've been doing hot oil treatments and deep conditioning at least once a week under a softhood dryer, and hope this will help start to build up more moisture over time.

Anyway, just wanted to say hi and that I'm excited to be here learning from all you fabulous people!
