I thinks it's the same basic issue. We need to adjust our product for the season.
Check out these links. Thy are product specific but information is included that I think would apply to all products.
Curl Junkie's CIAB or CQ for winter?
My hair is nicer today. I did that aloe as I mentioned above. I also did a longer steam cap in the shower and then I used a lot more LI. I did not style at all and it has more wave than it did the past couple of days with stylers so I have no doubt it would be back to how I want it had I scrunched well and gelled. Maybe even better. So, a big thank you from me to the responders.
Myrna - hopefully you will get your adjustments figured out, too, so you can your crunch back.
remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
LI: KCKT or CJSL
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)
Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
