Have I told you all how much I love all of your help? Well, I do and thank you.

I can not believe how much better my hair is looking; and, how much better I feel about myself now. That is a priceless gift, and, I am so grateful. :kisses:kisses.gif

Someone recommended that I try re:coil with Angell. I tried it over the weekend; and, my hair looked really good. To better apply re:coil I mixed it with LLL coco light and scrunched into my hair. I then plopped for 20 minutes and then scrunched in Angell. (sometimes diffuse sometimes no) My hair really seems to like a little product when it is dry so I scrunched in a little bit of ORS Lock & Twist mixed with a little LLL coco light again. My hair loved this product combonation. Pics are in my album if you would like to see the results.

With these products, I have acheived second day hair. I just sprayed a little Mister Right on and scrunched in a little ORS Lock & Twist. Can you believe that!? Pics are in my album on the second page. Also, please notice the corkscrew in the back. Those are starting to pop up in my previously not that wavy spots. I am so excited :hyper:hyper.gif

Now, I have put myself in PJ jail since I have found some wonderful products. But, I still have a few on the way; and, I do not consider swapping to be off limits I still have Ava's combo on the way. I couldn't find it anywhere and decided to use my drugstore.com credit to order that; and, I just got a curlmart order yesterday so I will have to try that stuff out too :P

YAY! :dance:dance.gif I found out that I can pineapple! Kim, you were such a help to me when I came onto this site.

I'm still trying to figure out what my hair actually needs.
My hair is a mix of 2b/3a and even a bit of 3b thrown in! I would call my hair wavycelli. It curls most when I leave it alone after wet scrunching. My hair has a spring factor of about 2 or 3 inches and has a very silky, medium texture.
WOW kimberly! You hair is really changing! Amazing! Has it been about a month? Good job--a ringlet-- :hyper:hyper.gif
Modified CG since 9/03. 2B/3A. JESSICURL!!! Gentle Poo, Aloeba, Gelebration, Awe; or Mop Top Poo & Condish; Curlisto Mousse & Gel I. Winter: Elucence MB Clarify, Shampoo & Conditioner. ACV & honey rinses. Plop & Pixiecurl diffuse. Password: curls
Your hair is looking awesome! Talk to me about LLL Coco light....is this a leave-in? That's what I'm guessing from the description. It sounds pretty nice.
2b/3a, primarily use Jessicurl and DevaCurl products, Curls Hair Tea conditioner and various gels. I'm modified CG-ish since 5/04.
I'm soooooooooo happy that the Re:coil and Angel worked for you! I'm not sure if I told you about it, but I love that combo too!
Starting my curly resolution! 3a/3b with some waves thrown in. Haven't been CG in a while. Need product suggestions.

Thank you all for your kind replies.

lcaste1 - Now, that you mention it, it was your recommendation that led me to my new combo. Thank you :Kissing2:kissing2smilie.php

kimmyc - I use it as an additional leave-in; I also leave a little EMB in when I rinse with this new combo. My hair absolutely loves LLL Coco Light. It is also the perfect consistency for thinning re:coil to make it easy to distribute.

cunninghamair - It has been almost two months. Wow, time flies when you are having fun (And buying products )


Dancingbadger - I am so happy that you can pineapple now. We will help you figure out what your hair needs, it just takes time. And, I am glad that I was help to somebody

skywatcher - As always thank you :kisses:kisses.gif


kjwavy - Welcome to PJ jail; you can join skywatcher and I there. We do have one rule: Swaps are okay


I was able to shower last night and my hair looks good today too :dance:dance.gif And, once again, thank you for all of your help and support. I am so glad that I have found you all :grouphug:grouphug.gif
Kimberly, your hair looks awesome :dance:dance.gif ! Love the second day hair pics. Your hair has become amazing since before finding nc.com.

I almost could have had second day hair today if I'd played around with it. But, being Saturday, it was experiment day . I wanted to try plopping again and I SO want to like Aura Hypo-allergenic gel. I still can't get the root lift on the top of my head like most people can from plopping. I did upload some new pics of various products from experiments during the week.

Again, you're hair looks wonderful!

Have you tried that? Sorry, if I should know this answer, but, I am forgetful
Why, why yes, Kimberly you should know the answer to the ABBA question .. I mean, there's only 50 other people for you to keep up with ... sheesh (I put two laughing emoticons just in case you can't see them!!)

I have used ABBA and love the lift. I think I've discovered part of the problem at my crown area .. I think my hair tends to dry forward as I'm diffusing upside down. Does that make sense? I'm thinking I should diffuse just a minute or two upside down, then right side up and tilt my head back. I've also used my other hair dryer with the sock diffuser over it and aimed it at the roots. Alot of time I get great lift, it's just my hair is still thin enough to see right through to my scalp. You can't see it as much in the pics as in real life.

Oh, and the reason I don't think I can get lift with plopping is with my hair being layered, the hair in back isn't long enough to create a kind of "cushion" for the hair on top of my head. Does that make any sense ?

Thanks for the ABBA rec, though .

I wish our avatars would come back!!

Completely makes sense about diffusing. My hair dries kind of weird when I diffuse too; so, I have to make sure I only do the roots. I use the cool setting upside down for about 2-5 minutes. Then I tip my head to each side and back and do the same thing. Try that and it might work for you too. When I use the hot sox I get major frizz.

I had serious problems with plopping for awhile too; and, then I created my own version. I follow the twisting instructions but then I cross in front and wrap around and that has helped with the smooshed crown. I never have quite understood the great lift from plopping. It really only helps my curl formation and keeps it out of my way for a little while. I now diffuse as I described above after plopping. Maybe you could try this method of plopping and have better results; but, if it doesn't work for you don't try to make it work

Looks like we have this forum all to ourselves

Yep, I agree with not understanding lift from plopping. I tried it this morning just for 15 minutes or so. Like you, I get good curl formation, but the front and top of my hair is just too smooshed. I bought me a little round brush today and figure I might do what some people call the 80's look .. kinda straight on top w/bangs and curly everywhere else.

Sounds like we diffuse the same way, too. I do the upside down thing, then side to side only I diffuse to about 80% or so. Then I try not to touch until I'm done putting on my makeup .

Sorry to invade your board but I wanted to mention the combo I used last night. I have the most amazing 2nd day hair today! I was lazy last night and didn't feel like condishing or rewetting my entire head so I sprayed lavendar mist on my hair until it was pretty damp then scrunched in a quarter size amount of CK while my head was flipped over. My hair today is incredible. I got a compliment as soon as I stepped in the door at work and its 95 degrees out! I think the combo seemed to reactivate my curls because my hair is curlier today than it was yesterday! Just thought I'd post this incase anyone is looking for a good second day hair routine.
Starting my curly resolution! 3a/3b with some waves thrown in. Haven't been CG in a while. Need product suggestions.

Speaking of beautiful hair....I know I have told you this somewhere else before, but, yours is absolutely gorgeous.
Munequita,
Your hair is soooooooooooooooooooo shiny and beautiful!!!!! I wish mine looked like that! What is your routine? Do you leave a ton of Elucence in after you condish?
