If you look at the pictures above with the hair strands in the water, then you will be able to see that the diameter of my curl revolutions are two different sizes. Also, the looser curl pattern remained floating at the top of the water, but my tighter curl pattern sunk to the bottom of the glass. I had an "aw-haw" moment. Two different curl patterns that were behaving differently in water. This was surreal. I now realized that my hair on my head has always had two different needs as far as regimens.
If you are interested in checking out your own head for curl pattern variations, then try this texture test:
1) Get a clear tumbler of water and sit it on paper that is the opposite color of your hair.
2) Make sure there is at least 3 inches of water in the glass. You want to see if your hair sunks to the bottom of the glass or not
3) Harvest strands from various areas of your head by running your fingers through your natural hair or your locks.
4) Put the strands into the glass of water and see if they float or sunk . Look at the curl diameters to compare if they are all consistent or not.
