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).

2c/3a, fine, low porosity.

Poo: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean (yes, it has a mild sulfate, but I have Teflon hair)
Co-wash: VO5 Kiwi Lime Clarifying Conditioner
LI: GVPCB or
Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioner (nothing to do with keratin straightening, just a nice conditioner)
Style: KCCC + Pantene Curl Shaping Gel (winter) or LALSG (summer)
Dry: Diffuse or air dry, depends on my mood

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 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.

the first one is a few months ago, my first really good hair day. I used a ton of gel, la looks nutra curl. The second is last week. No stylers, which is what I prefer
2B, Coarse, Low-Medium Porosity, Dense.
-Cowash - Kiss My Face Whenever.
-Rinse Out/Leave in - Nature's Gate Biotin.
-No stylers.
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!

My Hair:
2c
Fine, low porosity, med/high density
BSL - going for mid back to waist

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.

Modified CG since February 2013

I don't know what I did that day but my waves were so soft and shiny! Right now it's been raining where I am and I look like a tumbleweed !
