First Week Wurly (pics)

I've been more or less CG (aside from the brushing part) for a year, but this week was the first week I've tried to actually wear it wurly, w/styling products. (I also started CO washing instead of my TJ's shampoos--and I should've done this a long time ago! My hair is so soft and shiny.)

Here are the various forms of my hair.

Brushed:

Deva styled. Explanation: I was looking at some Deva products in a salon when a stylist appeared and offered to wash & style my hair with them for free. Not terribly impressed w/these results....

This week! FSG w/spritzer of coconut oil & water (I combed the bangs to keep them from fluffing up):

Later this week: KCCC & JCCC. Apologies for the huge uncurly swaths in the back.



I like the results visually a lot. But I have a lot of reservations (viz. the "Woes of a Wavie" thread) about how it feels.... I don't like having stiff hair that I have to try really hard to avoid smooshing. And it is a lot of work, compared to just brushing. But it's fun, so I'm not stopping yet

FIA 2a-c, ii.
Combo. fine/low porosity & coarse/porous.
Stylers: All-in-one spray, FSG, KCCC
Also using: Inecto condish, WW Tiare Pomade
Dislikes: soap bars, glycerin, protein.
Yawns at: all gels (even LALSG), Seamollient.

You do have nice hair. I really like it curly, but I also really like it brushed. It is nice to have options.

Thank you! I think it clumped better because I put the FSG in earlier. (Which left a yucky white coating. I may have to brush my stylers in to prevent this.)

Very pretty hair and the color is nice too! The last curly pic is my favorite
beauty-licous
Love the color!
Revelation: my homemade FSG promotes clumps because it itself is clumpy (sticky, goopy, whatever the right word is)!

My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.

Yes, I'm SOTC'ing, but it's still a bit dry--not soft. This may be a product issue, as it's less of a prob. w/FSG than it is with KCCC or AnGell.
