GoosefootPrints Analysis

sixelamysixelamy Posts: 4,156Registered Users Curl Neophyte
I know there are a few of us getting this analysis done, and figured we could all post our results here!

I originally did the LCLF analysis that told me I had medium width, low porosity hair. I just got my GoosefootPrints analysis back today and it came back totally different!

Hair strand thickness: Coarse ...what??
89% were coarse and 11% medium.
Porosity: Low at roots, porous/normal at mid-shaft, porous at ends. (I knew it!!)
Slight kinking
Normal elasticity dry, low elasticity wet

Apparently my hair is extremely sensitive to baking soda and more to shampoo bars, but showed no reaction to vinegar and little reaction to citric acid.

I am impressed how detailed this analysis is. I still have yet to read through everything and all the links she gave me.

If anybody has any advice on how the heck to take care of my hair now, it's welcome! I knew I was doing something wrong after my hair came back LP. I knew it wasn't!!

    Really pleased you found it useful. Do you know why your ends are high porosity, are you growing out old damage?

    Yes, I had some hi/low lights on my ends still, and I used to straighten my hair all the time. The middle has no color... possible heat damage from the flat iron that I had stopped using 7 months prior. The very ends of my hair basically had no cuticle, which is really sad. I did get a hair cut since that chopped that part off, so I don't think I have any bleach damage left. Definitely going to try the pre-poo coconut oil.

    Now I am interested in trying this. I did the LCLF analysis, which I felt was accurate for the most part, however I don't think I have low elasticity and my hair is more coarse than medium coarse.

    Collect them from the shower drain, separate and sort so they line up neatly bulbs all at the same end. Slosh around in soapy water if they need cleaning.

    I just cut all mine near the root so I could distinguish what was the root and what was the end. If you do this, I suggest you go very slow and be careful. I had a spot where I accidentally cut off like 10 hairs lol Luckily it wasn't from the top of my head.

    40-50 hairs???? GEEZ! that seems like a lot! However, sounds like it would allow for a more thorough analysis. I just sent off my hair samples for LCLF and if I recall it was only like 16-20 hairs (I probably could've done more). I simply just pulled mine out one by one.

    Are yo sure you can do it that way? It looks like she needs them from the top, sides and back of head. Does it matter if they're marked or is it just a way to get them from all areas of head?

    No, I was not satisfied at all. She didn't give any ingredient recommendations, she only has groupings of products on her pinterest, which some I didn't agree with. I didn't feel like I had low porosity hair at all, and turns out I don't - only at the roots. She doesn't use a microscope or measuring tools like Wendy does at GoosefootPrints, she only eyeballs it. IMO, the LCLF analysis was a waste of my money. My hair has been way off since treating it like it was low porosity, nothing was working at all.

    Oh and Wendy at Goosefootprints recommends you do NOT pull hairs out as the over stretching looks like damage under the microscope.

    I loved my hair analysis it was so worth it! I'm a student on a tight budget but the $25 I spent on the analysis is just $25+ I'm saving on experimentation with products that won't even work.

    My analysis:
    I have medium-coarse hair, some kinking. Normal elasticity dry and wet. Low porosity at roots, normal and low mid-shaft and porous ends (ombre bleach damage). Slightly acid sensitive and somewhat sensitive to baking soda. (I avoid ACV and baking soda rinses anyways)

    My hair has never been better!
    Mostly 3B curl with some 3A and 3C mixed around. Super long, few inches away from the waist.

    Some kinking
    Normal elasticity (dry & wet)
    Low porosity at roots, normal/low mid-shaft, porous ends

    Hi! I received my hair analysis from Goosefootprints last week. Lots of valuable information that I'm reading slowly and trying to assimilate. My results were:


    Hair strand thickness: 3b - Coarse
    Hair elasticity dry and wet: Normal
    Porosity: Low at roots, normal to porous mid-shaft, mostly porous at ends


    My hair is coarse but at the same time porous. She recommended using protein in certain cases, such as before coloring my hair. She recommended hydrolyzed keratin and hydrolyzed collagen or amino acids. Have any of you used (with good results) a product containing these ingredients?


    She also recommended heavy creams instead of gel, as I'm trying to elongate my curls and avoid shrinkage. Any recommendations on a good curl cream, preferably protein/silicone free?


    Also, to avoid frizz, she recommended "film forming humectants" such as flaxseed and aloe vera gel. I've tried to make my own FSG with not very good results. Any recommendations on where to buy already made FSG? Have any of you tried the Aveda Flax Seed gel? I'm experimenting with FOTE as well.


    Wendy also emphasized that my hair would benefit from heavy pre-poo coconut oil treatments.


    Thanks in advance for your answers. I really recommend the Goosefootprints analysis. As other poster said before, you'll save a lot of money when you start buying only those products that are good for your hair.

    I loved CJ Repair Me - it has keratin amino acids. Your hair sounds similar to mine, and mine absolutely loves keratin!

    Sweet Curls Elixirs on Etsy makes FSG that you can add your own ingredients, if you wish.

    Thanks sixelamy! I'll definitely order Repair me soon. And I'll take a look at FSG at Etsy and order some as well!

    I actually had my hair cut by Tiffany (LCLF) about three years ago and she also said my hair was coarse. She recommended avoiding proteins and use some of the CJ products (CIAB was one of them) which I liked.

    She cut my hair nicely but I just don't think the Deva cut technique is right for my hair...and Wendy confirmed that. She said that Deva cuts tend to remove the "bulk" of the hair and leave you with un-filled ends, which is not good if your hair is not dense. That's why my hair looks very short and "stringy" after a Deva cut. My hair needs to keep the "weight" and even though I love lots of layers, they do not look good on my hair. So I think I'll stick with regular end trims every four months or so as I would like my hair to grow healthy.

    Yeah I mean, gathering the loose hairs when detangling doesn't sound too scary, but how do I know which is what end?

    Also, I'm not entirely confident that my collection of hair would manage to go all over the world (okay, from Europe to the US, but still. It's a different continent).

    I just cut a few from different areas: crown, back, sides. No big deal, you cannot notice it. Cut them very close to the scalp so you know in which sides are the roots and the ends.

    Just wanted to add my two cents in that I had the LCLF done a couple years ago and then had it done by Komaza Care. If I had known the goosefootprints analysis would be offered soon I would have waited.

    Anyway, LCLF said I had medium texture, normal elasticity, and normal porosity. Komaza Care said I had coarse texture (and coarse to the touch), normal to high porosity and normal elasticity. So, two very different results. I tend to trust KC more than LCLF because they look at my hair under the microscope, sent me pics of my hair with some captions, general recommendations and also a phone call to discuss my hair. But they are very pricey!
