In Need of a Hair Twin and More...

TheLostCurlyTheLostCurly Posts: 4Registered Users
So, first off, I'm new to the forums and I've learned a few facts about my hair. My hair is/has:
  • 2b-2c
  • fine texture
  • low porosity
So, I was hoping on finding a hair twin here so I can try their used products and see if it works well on my hair.

Also, I was hoping to learn about hair elasticity and density. How do you figure out both of those?

That's all I've got at the moment, and I hope that I'm not being too much of a bother to anyone, haha. I really want this to work! :)

    That site should help you determine elasticity and density. I don't think I'm your hair twin, and I'm new too, so I can't help you there!
    2C, thick, coarse/medium-high porosity?/ normal elasticity.

    i have 2b 2c hair and i have tried so many products i would be rich if i sold back all the ones that didnt work. currently here are all the ones i use in routine order.
    -head and shoulders shampoo and conditioner (dont always need a curly shampoo this brand works FANTASTICALLY)
    -garnier deep conditioner (comes in a jar leaves hair strong and soft)
    -hair insurance leave in conditioner spray by aussi ( leave smooth and smells like coconuts!)
    -john frieda spray gel, any spray gel works ok i dont really see a difference garnier is supposed to be good to i used to use that a while ago and it worked pretty well
    - and this pomade, i havent tried it yet it was recommended to me by curly suzy for my hair type (2b 2c) im waiting for it to be in stock again http://www.curlmart.com/MOP-Glisten-High-Shine-Pomade-p-930.html
    - also aussi catch the wave hairspray
    -and garnier shine serum, it comes in a little bottle, i only use this sometimes because my hair never dries in time for me to put it in, its great for those humid days when you need to tame flyaways. but make sure your hair is completely dry because you need to get your hands all in your hair and it may mess up damp curls.
    hope this helps any more questions just ask ;)

    my hair sounds like yours, fine textured and wavy. how long is it? mine's about 2 inches above my belly button.

    i use suave green apple conditioner for co wash and LA looks sport gel to scrunch, then after it's completly dry, i SOTC.

    Yeah, I have like one picture, but I'm not sure if you can really see my curls in it.

    Obviously my hair isn't really all that long. :/

    (I've taken out my picture because I haven't felt comfortable with it just sitting here...) :)
