Anyone like me?
I'm so glad that I found this site. I'm not sure I picked the right hair type... because nothing seems to fit. My hair is odd. It can be perfect ringlets all on it's own. That, of course, never happens when I try to get curls. It does ringlets after swimming in the ocean or lake and drying in the wind. So, that's one extreme - very curly, all uniform ringlets. The other extreme is waves with some curls. If I overcondition or overbrush my hair, it looks more wavy/less curls. What I did not see in matching hair types is that my hair is COARSE. Each strand is super thick. I'm a redhead and have heard that we have thicker/coarser hair strands. However, I know many redheads who have softer, finer hair. I'm not sure where I fit in.
Hair: tight waves to loose curls. Thick. Coarse. Dry. Natural redhead until bright white strands popped out. Color with FramColor now. Shampoo: alternate Phytojoba with Cowash: Suave coconut, Paul Brown or those that didn't work well as a conditioner. Conditioner: can't find one heavy enough. Product: Aveda Brilliant Humectant Pomade. DT: Coconut Oil
