I can't believe how much better my hair seems to look over the last few weeks. The first pic is a new one (last week), the second one is from early summer, before I "officially" went CG (I would have had my hair styled with all Deva product and diffused).

Wavywoods and Mec1976- you both have gorgeous hair!

I'm finding very little variation in my hair as long as I use LI, curl cream and gel. I co-wash when I can and low-poo about twice a week. Loving Re:coil and Curl Keeper right now. I was doing really well with CJPP mixed with a drop of BRHG, but I found that I can do SMasters technique when I use Biotera gel instead. I apply everything to nearly sopping wet hair and use my hands to scrunch/squeeze out extra water, then plop for 10-15 minutes. If I have time I diffuse, otherwise I air dry. And I do a PT and DT once a week. I found that the moment my hair started cooperating was when I started using IAgirl's PT recipe.

Have you tried the Biotera curl Creme? I'm using that right now bit wondered how it compared to AG Recoil.

I just picked up the Biotera Curl cream last week after reading all the rave reviews. I like it, and would use it, but I do like the Re:coil better.

Well my latest experiment has been taking 1 pump of the biotera curl Creme and mixing it in my hand with a quarter size blob of ky jelly. I basically scrunch it in upside down right after I turn off the shower - so my hair is pretty much dripping wet. Once I think it is pretty well distributed I do a few more scrunches to wring out the extra water.

While I'm still upside down I get my gel mix together. I start with a small 2 finger scoop of KCCC (maybe a dime or nickel size?) in my hand I then squeeze a pea size blob of BRHG and about a quarter size blob of pure clean gel. Sounds weird but the KCCC & pure clean gels really get my waves going - but i need the hard hold of the BRHG.

I rub my hands together to mix and emulsify the products. Starting with my right hand I start scrunching the product into my hair upside down. Once I feel like all the product is off my hand and in my hair, I flip upright. I rub my hands together again to distribute the gel from my left hand into both hands. I lean to the right and repeat scrunching process with my right hand. Then I lean to the left and repeat scrunching process with my left hand. If any product is left I put it through my crown.

Next I use a microfiber towel to scrunch out any excess moisture and really push the product into my hair. If I have time I will plop for a few minutes. Then using a bowl diffuser to diffuse dry & SOTC.

For 2nd day hair I spray with water and usually scrunch a little more of the gels in (just depends on how well my waves look) and diffuse.

Sounds complicated, but it's really not to bad. Much easier than when I used to blow dry, flat iron, & use the hot rollers!!

I even managed to get 3rd day hair today Seems like my waves are getting better & better since going CG!!

Would love to see some pics of your hair
