My hair has two, if not three different textures. What do I use to develop some consistency?
Different curl patterns and textures are completely normal to have – it’s a common characteristic of curly/kinky hair. I have sections at my nape that are extremely fine, while the rest of my hair is mainly medium/coarse. I have long given up trying to make them uniform, because that’s just the nature of my hair. Learn to work with what you have, rather than change it to what you want it to be.
However, frizz can be an issue due to several reasons. Moisture/protein balance and climate are two of my key culprits. While I don’t think you need to make a product use matrix, it may be helpful to monitor how much moisture vs. protein you are using – especially protein because it can build up over time with various products and contribute to protein overload. Sometimes I don’t think I’m using a lot of protein on a daily basis, but if it’s in my conditioner, leave-in, and styler, it’s adding up and I should probably start to focus on moisture.
If you live in a humid climate (high dew point), monitor your use of humectants. You may also need to use heavier products to keep frizz at bay. My product use is based on the brattiest parts of my hair, so if I need a heavier product for a specific section, that is what I use on my entire head.
