I have type 4a natural hair. It's high density, normal porosity but can't hold a curl for it's life. I like to stay away from gels, (including flaxseed gel), but would love it if my styles - especially twistouts and the like - would last more than a couple of hours. This is a quick and simple answer to this problem... I think?
A lot of people use the first of the month as an opportunity to turn a new leaf from the bad habits of the previous month. I find it to be the best time to start new projects, set new goals, and most importantly, start new beauty regimens!
