Welcome back, curls! I've missed you!
So lately my curls had been less than spectacular. They were droopy - sometimes just very loose waves. I didn't feel overly dry/proteined. I didn't feel mooshy and over-conditioned. I had just recently clarified. They felt a little dry, so I did a DT. But still... ugh. I know I am in need of a cut, but it shouldn't be affecting me THAT much.
So what was up?
Well, I still don't know. LOL! But today I clarified again, did a gelatin PT that I added 2 other protein conditioners to, as well as a little CNPF. (I don't mess around when it comes to my proteins! HA!)
I followed up with some GFTN and SM Masque, and then my usual RO - GVP CB, which I only rinsed half-way out.
Then my usual LI, followed by a fresh batch of FSG with some new additives.
VOILA! My curls are back! Not sure what did it, really, but the FSG (which I'd been out of for a while) clumped and enhanced my curls beautifully, and now I'm almost fully air-dried, and will SOTC.
Of course they still have to survive the night - lol! But At least I know they still exist! I was starting to wonder...
So I guess the next time my hair is "acting up", I'll just do everything possible! HAHA! Clarify, super PT, and DT it up! And be sure I have my FSG handy! (This new recipe ROCKS!!)
