Thank you so much you guys! I'm shocked that this is day 3 as well. I think the curl definition is even better than day 1, with more of my whirls looking like curls. I'm thinking this might be because instead of actually washing my hair I just wet it, so I was able to avoid pulling out my curls. Also because I started out with good hair days 1 and 2, I had a good base to start with, and maybe adding a little product to what was already in my hair encouraged more curl. Whatever the reason, after struggling for a couple months to get a good routine going, I'm so ecstatic to have good hair three days in a row!

Today I decided that I've had enough of this shag business for a good long while, and my only course of action is to grow this weirdly motionless-on-the-sides business for as long as I can stand it.

This morning I just used KCKT as my LI & let it air dry. Not much for frizz control, especially since I took these about 5 mins ago so it's been all day, but its nice to see the unmanipulated curl pattern. Plus it's super soft.

fine, thin, normal/(low?) porosity. Mod-CG. Usually I can't co-wash more than 1x a week, & sometimes I have to use T-Gel in rotation due to scalp issues.

Co-wash: VO5 Volumizing
Poo: Giovanni 50:50
RO:TN, Nexxus Youth Renewal, Alba Coconut
LI: KCKT
PT: gelatin PT, ION EC
Stylers: Giovanni mousse, TIGI Curls Rock amplifier (a-cone), Curls Rock Strong Hold Mousse
Gels: SCC spray gel

I don't understand how KCKT dries for some type 2s. It took hours and hours to dry in my hair.

I dont know but it doesnt affect my drying time. My hair is fine, thin & on the porous side though. It dries quickly even when its healthy. I dont use much of it either, I've used anywhere from a dime to a glob & it dries just fine.

I thought I give my Jessicurl stuff a try, since dews are up now and I overdid it with protein products lately. This time I used much more than usual, cause I followed the instructions on the Jessicurl website. When I was diffusing I already noticed my hair was going poof, so I immediately rewet my hair and put a couple of blobs of hard hold gel in it. My hair still felt hard/dry when I scrunched (just like with the GS and CCSS only).

When dry my hair was extremely frizzy, limp and much less defined than when I used less Jessicurl GS + CCSS.

Do others have the same problem with the Jessicurl line when they use as much as they show on the Jessicurl videos?

I haven't had problems with JC. It makes my hair extremely wavy, if not downright curly.

Last night I did a PT (I posted details here: PT recipe - as promised) and woke up with the first photo below.

Being greedy, I decided to try for better clumps. So I dampened with a spray bottle and smoothed in some KCKT. Then I flipped my head over the sink and scrunched in lots of water (modified super soaker). Then I scrunched in KCCC into dripping wet hair (made squishy noises when scrunching), followed by FSG. Then I used a microfiber towel to scrunch out the drips. Then I pixie difused upside down until about 90% dry and airdried the rest of the way. SOTC with a tiny bit of KCKT and finished with a tiny bit of coconut oil.

I am officially declaring this a good hair day. It's windy outside so it's slightly more frizzy now but has held up suprisingly well. It feels soft (not hard or crunchy). The last pic looks like I have a weird bump on the back of my head, but in 3-D it's like a cascade of lazy spirals LOL.

Looks great RainyDayWaves!

Today I co-washed with TN (moisture) then RO with GVP CB. Used my samples of DM hair whip and miracurl jelly, then sealed the ends with a little DB curl styling cream. My hair dried with some crunch, but it was easily scrunched out. My hair feels great (moisturized, silky, soft), but not as good clumping as I would like - I think my hair is slightly over-moisturized (getting some limp, stringy curls). I'm pretty sure this is due to my application, and not due to anything wrong with the prodcuts, so I will try using less product next time, or maybe not doing the extra RO if I'm co-washing. I think once I figure out the right amount/application, I'll really like the DM products.

Just uploaded a bunch of photos to my fokti (link: Public Home | Kdawn12 | Fotki.com, photo and video sharing made easy. ) of what I've done over the last few days, but here's a basic list:

6/9 - CHS Treatment Shampoo (non-CG), Ion + AOGPB rinse out, KCKT as leave in rinsed through, UFD Curly Magic scrunched, AIF + BRHG (50:50 mix) scrunched, diffused
Overall result - very nice, UFD CM always reminds me how much my hair likes grabby products

6/11 - Giovanni Smooth As Silk low poo, Ion Effective Care + Tresemme Naturals rinse out, KCKT leave in rinsed through, clipped, KMF UM scrunched, scrunched in CJ Curl Queen, AIF + BRHG scrunched, diffused
Overall result - not too bad, KMF UM definitely caused some flash drying and wasn't curl enhancing enough for my taste, but Curl Queen saved the day

6/12 - Deva No Poo, Ion Effective Care rinse out, KCKT leave rinsed through, clipped, Ecostyler w/ protein scrunched, AIF + BRHG (50:50 mix) scrunched, diffused
Overall result - Ecostyler also caused some flash drying, but not too much, more wave enhancing - will try sealing with grapeseed oil for both this and KMF UM to see if it helps with flash drying

Up next - comparing As I Am Curling Jelly with KCCC (had a few wavies with similar hair properties express curiosity in how these products compare, and since I've been meaning to give these both a try now that it's summer and I've gotten my Devacut, I figure why not)

Sorry if I do any mistakes, english isn't my native language :P

I tried to sleep with an "pineapple" but it didn't went out well at all (frizzy, non-defined waves and curls) sĺ i did the same as jsuzkelley (your hair is amazing, btw ^^) - scrunched in water and some leave-in. But it just got sticky, rough and stringy when it dried, so I just put it in a ponytail, and when I came home from school (summer vacations now, yaay ) i conditioned, plopped it for about an hour and then let it airdry.
Low poo, RO, KCKT, HETT mousse. Pardon my shiny forehead lol

Well today, like almost every day, I washed my hair with my favorite shampoo and conditioner and put in my pro naturals argan oil to get the frizzes down and the shine up! I waited for a while and then blow dried with my Karmin G3 ceramic dryer using a diffuser and voilá! Perfect curls
