Question So 2's what did you do to your hair today?

I love this thread on the 4A forum and on LHCF. So I thought we should do it too!

Basically it's the place for you to indicate what you did to your hair that day--products, successes, failures, etc.

Post away!

Weeeelll, the waves have been looking a little blah since the cooler weather arrived. It always takes me a while to find my fall/winter routine since the previous year's never works (or maybe I just can't remember it, lol). So, since changing up the products hasn't been doing wonders, I decided to arrange it a little differently when I was using my Denman. I usually brush it back and away from my face, but today I brushed it sort of down and across my forehead a bit. Jury is still out since it isn't completely dry yet, but so far I'm liking it...it's kind of like having bangs without really having to have them. Just a softer look. How about you?

I'll play!

I'm recovering from a protein disaster, so today I focused on moisture. Just did my normal wet scalp scrub, then a good dose of GFTN rinse-out. I just got a protein-free condish for leave-in (Suave Aloe & Waterlily), so I scrunched in a good handful of that, then a bit of gel (currently using a GF one, can't remember the name). It's air drying now, and hopefully it will have more life and shine and health back once it's dry!

Just a co-wash with Tea Tree Triple Treat, rinse out with GFTN (and a pea sized leave-in of GFTN), and some HESMU mousse. I tried the Pixie diffusing method, and it looks better than it has in a while. I think I need more hold than the mousse alone, so I'll probably add some gel tomorrow.

I can't wait for my hair to adjust to CG. I've only been doing it for a few days, so my hair is still being kind of stubborn, and I'm still figuring out what products it likes.

I am going to un-pineapple and use a refresher to hopefully get 2nd day hair. I *was* thinking about trying a protein DT but I think I'm too lazy today.

I used my extra virgin coconut oil and mixed it with a little argan oil (for giggles) as a pre-poo. Left it on for 30 some odd mins and then CJ loo-poo'd it out. I think I'm really starting to dig the CJ loo-poo. Anyway, went back to the mastey since I haven't used it in-for-evah (and I know how my hair reacts with it), and then used CJ CA LI. Pulled the old jessicurl samples back out and..... its a bust. The of my hair back is nearly flat. Why is something that is marketed as a curl enhancer not enhancing on me?? I mean, LOOC is more curl enhancing when used alone under gel! lol.

Anyway, I'm gonna go with the fact that Jessicurl is loaded with oils, and I should just stay away from them in anything but my pre-poo's.

Nothing. I woke up and it looked fine. And I didn't even wash it or wet it last night. Went to bed with it dry. Woke up and it still looked fine.

I used conditioner only last night. I cowashed and used rinse-out conditioner. Then, I did a modified version of super-soaker. I raked in a ton of leave-in. I brushed with a denman brush. Scrunched in some water, and scrunched in more leave in. I slept with a really wet pineapple. I love how soft it is. It's not as curly as usual, but I think it's worth it because I like having no crunch.

Nothing and I look a hot mess. BUT Sundays I spend on the couch watching football in my jammies. It's my "give your hair a break" day. I was gonna try out Boots today but decided to wait until tomorrow.

What a strange day for this thread. Did a PT, blew it strait for the first time in months and cut it myself. Hope it don't have triangle head when I wash it and fix curly again.

For the second day in a row, I added Artec Textureline Gel (after my usual JCRR & JCCC) to soaking wet hair, plopped, and diffused. Turned out well, but I still don't like this haircut.

I pampered my waves today. Washed with Aveda black malva shampoo (on scalp only), used Hi-pro pac protein treatment in my hair for a few minutes, rinsed that out, and then conditioned with Aura cherry almond bark.

Dew points are high here today, so I chose Eco Styler gel to combat poofiness/frizz. I combed this through soaking wet hair, scrunched with a microfiber towel, and let it air dry.

I low pooed with Abba Aloe Vera and Watercress, rinsed with Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut. Then I put in GVP Conditioning Balm, put in Proclaim Curl Activator Gel, and Salon Care Aloe Vera Gel. Blow dried upside down, and it woooorked!

I misted with water to reactivate the Dep texture sport Gel already in it from yesterday..Smoothed in a pea size of LOOC, Finger styled, scrunched as needed, clipped the top and sat under the dryer 10 minutes. Not super curly or clumpy, but perfectly presentable.

I was excited today because I bought a new shampoo and conditioner--excited to see how my hair turns out! I washed it and am currently plopping it right now and plan on keeping it plopped until morning!

Today was a low-poo day. So I low-poo'd and CO'd with Giovanni 50/50. Put in some GVP CB and left it on for the rest of my shower and rinsed with cold water (which sucks in the fall/winter BTW...). Then I raked in AOMM and scrunched in HETT. It was an "eh" hair day. Very shiny and soft, but my hair can dry in weird patterns if the scrunching isn't perfect.

The GG gives a little hold. I like it under Gelles'c. I also use the GG over other enhancers with slight hold.

I low poo'd and conditioned with GF nutri-repair (the same as tripple something for US curlies??) I gave it a quick blow dry as I was catching a lift with my brother and it was raining outside, to cold for airdrying. Hair is soft but feels a little dry in spots. I'm over due for a protein treatment but it's at my uni house
