Have you tried just cutting out a couple steps and see how your hair turns out? Maybe skip the plop and one of the product steps? If you want looser curls, I see no need to plop or add the curl crème.
I watched the Veronica Meza youtube video with her using Curl Keeper and kept wondering if she just threw the Curl Keeper in her hair,srunched and diffused (without the sectioning), if her hair would end uplooking pretty much the same. I suspect many of the differences we notice when we do A versus B are probably pretty minor and most other people aren’t noticing the difference in our hair. Having healthy hair, a good cut, and a good leave-in (to eliminate frizz) are probably the main things. Everything else is maybe just gravy.
