1. What works for your hair type? I can pretty much do anything with my hair...as long as I use the right products.

2. What does not work for your hair type? Going to bed with wet hair and waking up expecting it to look good.

3. What do you love about your hair type? It's long enough that I can do a lot to it. Wear it down, style it, braid it, make an updo....

4. What don't you like about your hair type? It tends to get frizzy and I have cowlicks.

5. Which hair type do you wish you had? I just wish my hair was thicker.

straight and fine hair

1. What works for your hair type? long layers gives me a little bounce

2. What does not work for your hair type? Updos are the pits

3. What do you love about your hair type? Easy to manage, no frizzies

4. What don't you like about your hair type? back to the updo thing again. It won't hold. Even when my hair was a lot shorter so it's not just the weight of the length

5. Which hair type do you wish you had? I like my hair, but I would like it just a little thicker.......

My hair is in between straight and wavy, and in between fine and medium lol.

1. What works for your hair type? blowdrying it straight. I can´t get it pin straight, but rather straight with a little movement.

2. What does not work for your hair type? Letting it air dry completely on it´s own. Well sometimes that works and gives me slightly wavy hair, but there´s always a big of frizz then. And no shine

3. What do you love about your hair type? That I can wear it straight (flat iron) or make it a little wavy (put it in a bun when damp)

4. What don't you like about your hair type? a lot of times I wished my hair was naturally wavy, in a PRETTY way. A way that doesn´t require styling.

5. Which hair type do you wish you had? thicker, shinier, longer, naturally wavy and bouncy. Like the girls in the hair commercials lol

1. What works for your hair type?

Long layers, razored at the end.

2. What does not work for your hair type?

Short hair or long hair with no layers.

3. What do you love about your hair type?

I love how thick my hair is. I am complimented all the time, and even stylists call other stylists to feel my "perfect" hair. I also like how it is wavy, so I can go straight or curled, and it looks good.

4. What don't you like about your hair type?

I hate how it's thick. Yes, a blessing and a curse. It sucks when brushes can't get through your hair.

5. Which hair type do you wish you had?

I wish I had thinner hair, not fine, but medium, so I wouldn't have limited options.

Kinky & Fine/Curly & Fine

1. What works for your hair type? Henna & Indigo-ing. It really helps to thicken my fine/medium hair strands and loosens my natural kinks and curls to larger curls and waves. I also like how it makes my hair nearly 'indestructible'! Now, all I have to do is roller set it, and it is relatively straight.

2. What does not work for your hair type? Any kind of heat and too much manipulation, and wearing it down alot is not good for me...the length is starting to get caught in things.

3. What do you love about your hair type? It's got great texture and body on it own, but with the added henna treatment, this is even more amplified.

4. What don't you like about your hair type? Even though it's not a living thing, it does go through bad mood spells, LOL. Part of the problem is that I have a couple different hair types all on one head.

5. Which hair type do you wish you had? The type I was born with is good enough for me. Just like all other hair types, it looks beautiful when taken care of.
