When I say I REFRESH with CJ Smoothing Lotion, I mean I use it to moisturize and smooth down 2nd, 3rd, 4th day hair.
When I say I alternate, I mean on days I do NOT use Recoil. I use SS CEJ more often (less drying). But for days I absolutely, positively must have nice curls and clumps and need it to hold up (like parties), I do Re:coil and Curl Queen, a combo that really works, even in Miami humidity for me.
I know I did a thread here (earlier this year or late last year, I forget) with pics of me after doing my Pilates session with like fifth day hair and it looked great. hahah. I do believe it was CEJ and Smoothing that got that for me. I get a lot of hair days from Re:coil and from SS CEJ...both....pretty reliable for me.
I routinely get second day hair (like today, with SS CEJ and I slept on it without a scrunchie). I guess that's why I keep using these.
Holy cow, just realized I missed my 2 year natural curly anniversary....November 25. Black Friday. HAH.
