I'll play. =) I only use LALSG as a styler, and I think I used AO GPB as my rinse out (if it wasn't that it was GVPCB, those are my two and gosh that's a lot of letters lol).

Wow trick, your hair is so uniform and shiny, it looks like you used a curling iron. I think I have a new hair idol.

Thank you Yoshimi! When I saw your newest picture I thought your hair looked a whole lot like mine before I cut it It was right around that length before.

I really need to go update my sig...

I love this thread. and I finally had a good hair day today. I have been having the worst luck since spring started. I even got a hair complement today which just makes me feel like something is finally working for me.

Thank you KatMack! Your hair looks great too!
I see in you signature that you use the SM Smoothie. How do you like that? I have picked it up and put it down a few times because I wonder if it would be too heavy for my hair.
I have been reading FSG posts all morning and am considering trying my hand at that later today. This curly journey is an adventure of ups and downs!

I really like the soufflé, even more so than kccc but if i use more than a tiny bit it makes my hair all oily and gross so a little goes a long way. I've heard good things about fsg too but I'm just entirely too lazy to do that lol.

Oh just reread that, the smoothie I love. I use it as a sealer/curl enhancer and it works great. I can use it to calm frizzies on 2nd day hair too, and that's a nice plus.

I love the encouragement and support that's on this thread! We all need a place where we are allowed to flourish, this is great! Here are some of my best hair day pics. My hair varies from 2B-3A, so only some of them would be considered "2" pics, but hopefully you'll still accept me I never really look back at the good days, so this is really helpful for my spirit!

Loving all these great hair days for 2's! I wish I could throw one up there of my own... maybe soon lol. First it has to stop raining!

My Hair:

HG: currently
just washing with a low poo that contains protein (Alba Naturals Coconut) and using Suave Naturals Coconut as both a RO and LI. No stylers right now, but this gives me pretty good curl, definition, low-ish frizz, and it feels and looks good. Also an occasional PT (liking the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula which has cones) seems to be key for me.
