I thought this serves as a pretty dramatic visual that nappyness is actually just lightweight hair, not shrinkage or curl tightness.


See how the curls in the first picture are not uniform and how they seem to go more up and out? One would assume she didn't even have curls. One would think her hair is straight, even, since there is no visible curl pattern. Each strand seems to do it's own thing.

This is exactly how everyone's hair behaves when it is frizzy, because with out moisture retention/retained in the hair cortex, the hair will not have weight, and cannot form a uniform curl.

This woman, probably has normal to high porosity hair, plus it is a loose almost straight texture. So her frizz has less bends to twist out of uniform, and does not stand up as much. She also can do less to introduce moisture to her hair than someone with type 4 hair.

 The reason why frizz is more apparent on type 4 hair is because our hair has more bends. So there are many random angles are hair can form when it is dehydrated and therefore overly lightweight. This is why our hair can stand all the way up, and usually it only somewhat hangs when wet or when you gain a lot of length.

If it was simply shrinkage that caused frizz, the woman above's hair should look closer to the second picture. Shrinkage and tightness of your curls make dehydration more apparent, but shrinkage/coil pattern itself is not actually frizz. You can have full shrinkage and still have root to tip definition on product free hair.


This below is a close up of type 4 hair "kinks", the random bends down our hair strand that cause frizz/ ununiformity of the coils/zigzags.

http://www.thenaturalhavenbloom.com/2011_10_01_archive.html




Single kink (one torsion twist)
Double kink (two torsion twists)



These twists and bends are what really cause frizzy hair, not shrinkage or curl pattern. But if the strand is filled with water, those random bends wont occur. Think of it like a hose with water in it, versus one without.

The one without water will be easy to bend out of shape, twist, and fold over, the one with water will resist bending. Curl uniformity is directly reliant on moisture retention in the cortex, to weigh the hair down from inside the coil. This is the exact reason piling of heavy butters or gel to force a curl never works on 4c hair. Because you cannot effectively make the coils uniform by weighing down the hair from the outside the cuticle. Ultimately this causes more problems, especially tighter textures.

Also, water is the only thing that will effectively weigh down the hair and create curl uniformity, since they best absorb into the hair cortex. Oil cannot do it, even if it is absorbed, because oils are lighter than water, and are not directly moisturizing.

Another visual of lightweight/nappy hair on looser textures

Thanks Pinke for the friz 101 course, I really get excited when you post in depth informative posts like this, I really look forward to the faq/ebook. I honestly believe that frizz is not a hair type thing because my two sons have a looser curl pattern. ok its not as loose as the pictures you posted but its definitely not 4c maybe looking at the picture you posted about curl patterns it could be 4a,3c Im never really sure about the typing system. 

I have never ever seen their hair when its not frizzy unless its wet. The only time it was less frizzy is when I started using the kckt & kccc daily on their hair it reduced their frizz a lot. I was going to start the regimen you suggested for children on them but Im waiting for all my products to arrive again. I will take pictures of their hair before I do this maybe a little video clip from the back of their heads, Then will do it again after I do the regimen on them. So we can also have a mini documentation of the regimen on kids hair, for mothers out there who would want to try this regimen on LO's

Pinke I actually have a question concerning the cherry lola caramel treatment. For normal and high porosity do they skip this option or do they do just a caramel treatment or is it ok for them to do the cherry lola as well because from my understanding cherry lola is for low porosity right?

High porosity can do it, since it is also a mild protein treatment. They might not feel the need to, but the treatment is totally optional. Just like anyone can benefit from deep conditioning, any one can benefit from cuticle opening techniques, but its likely they may not need to. I'd say let them experiment with it. Besides, a lot of people have their porosity confused, especially in regard to low and high porosity hair.

This is what low porosity hair looks like:




this photo is type 3 low porosity






Wet low porosity hair.


Higher/normal porosity:








I didn't go out of my way to look for shiny defined coils. These pictures chosen are all from naturals who describe their hair porosity in line with the category i put them in.

The key is low porosity hair will turn white with conditioner(since it usually isn't absorbed) and high porosity will not turn white.

Low porosity will feel rough along the strand. High porosity hair will feel almost waxy.
Normal porosity will just feel wet.

 It also takes a while for low porosity hair to dry, although this could also be effected by what products u are using, if they are drying agents or not.

Ok y'all I may have stumbled upon something new. I don't know if it's because im reaching max hydration or if this new technique i discovered really works

So for the last two steps I rinsed out my terressentials (bentonite clay) and normally I apply my leave in then gel after and finish the regimen without re-wetting my hair.

However this time I applied my leave-in to my whole head then started to apply the gel to the left side of my head. After I finished the left side, I re-wet the right side with a spray bottle and then applied the gel on top and I got my best wash and go ever. My whole hair shakes now and the curls look more uniform. You all should try this and see how it works for you. Pinke i know you said you don't re-wet your hair as you are applying the gel but you may want to possibly try and see if it yields better results. Anyways I hope this helps someone

Aharri, that's awesome! Big smileThe reason I don't find the need to rewet my hair, is because i do my hair in sections as i go along. so my hair is already wet, if that makes sense. It's like i apply my conditioner and gel (that's two steps) at once, section by section. (i make horizontal rows starting from the back of my head going up.)

I never do my whole head in conditioner and then do my whole head in gel, otherwise it would definetly dry b4 i get to seal it in. Also, my conditioner is always watered down in the application bottle before hand. This is the same technique i did on my friends' brother's hair.(the pics i posted last week) So yeah, you are on point with rewetting. You want to be sealing in wet hair, don't let the conditioner dry up b4 u apply the gel.

Oh ok so it's like steps 4 and 5 are done together then. I'll try it that way when I re-do my hair in 2-3 days

Yup, doing it like that is also less time consuming(at least for me anyway)
