pictures--how to get clumpy curls?

ColochaColocha Registered Users Posts: 344
Here are some recent pictures (first 11 pictures). I like how my hair looks, though I´m curious how to get thicker curls (clumps).

Posting it on the 3c hair.

TIA!

    you're definatly more 3c than I am, but this is what I do:

    I apply my gel when my hair is sopping wet.

    I plop. I haven't done it long, but I get nice curls.

    I really like your hair! It's so fun looking! I prefer it curly (not that I'm bias...;) ), but you looked pretty with it straight as well. Isn't amazing how long your hair gets? lol

    Colocha-

    Your hair looks good. I love the length and back shots, and your color is so rich! Your son is really cute too :)

    Cehua has a thread on the 3c board with Techniques for Chunky Curls. Check it out and see if it helps. I posted on that thread some with thoughts. If you have any questions, post again here or bump up Cehua's thread and post there - either way I will try to respond and others may respond too!

    I agree, your hair looks very pretty and healthy, clumpy or not!

    I'm not experienced with the natural ingredients you use so I don't have any suggestions as to how to get chunkier curls with those. But I admire your use of home made products!

    I have a couple posts in the thread Curltopia mentioned as well.

    It looks like your son was in the hospital? I hope he is ok!

    Thanks! I´ve tried plopping in the past but it doesn´t work for me or probably I´m not doing it properly.

    Thanks Urbancurl! :oops: :D

    Yes, my son was in the hospital. A few weeks after hurricane Wilma, my son contracted pneumonia. He spent 4 days at the hospital and was treated like a king. :lol: The nurses liked him because he was the only blonde boy on the floor! :lol:

    On what not to wear there was a woman that hair like yours and Nick use leave in conditioner and gel plus moose but then he took the hair in pieces and twirled it then let it go. There were clumpier curls and it wasnt that bulky. Just a thought. I think it would take awhile to do that though.
    I've tried it on a few pieces of hair and it does work and makes the hair look longer.
    Hair type 3A/B,
    texture- fine
    porosity- low.....except end but think thats from the damage.
