CG Experiment Questions (see notes below)
1) Is my current method good for my hair type? Def. did not like the "wet" root line.
2) When (how often) to deep condition (have and will try biolage conditioning balm)
3) Since diffusing seemed to deplete the gel hold, can you suggest a stronger (non flake forming) curl enhancing gel?

Thanks in advance!


Day one of CG experiment (12/22/12)

Products:
Shea Moisture Organic Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo
TRESemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner With Aloe Vera & Avocado
Herbal Essence Totally Twisted gel

Method:
Massage scalp and run through rest with poo, rinse out
Flip head and apply condish, rinse out
While dripping wet, apply two palms of gel
Scrunch with microfiber towel
Plop into micro towel and leave 20 min {beautiful curls after release towel}
Diffuse to dry (short on time for in-laws Xmas) {may have caused clumps to release and frizz to start}

Results:
Flat and wet/greasy look at root line {either condish or gel was too much for roots}
Very ends look fried {def need hair cut}
Lots of clump curls - easy and pretty
When pinning front into bobby pins, canopy developed frizz
Hair is overall dry from years of round brush drying and flat ironing.
**Have looked at target, Walgreens and three dollar stores with no luck in finding small clips to lift root line while drying. Guess I will hit Sally's next week.
