Yet another update! (I hope I'm not getting annoying lol )
Last night I washed with L'Oreal EverCreme Co-Wash and followed up with a gob of GVPCB.
Just let partly air dry/went to bed without doing anything special with my hair.
Woke up, stuck my head in the shower and rinsed my hair with cold water until it was damp but not fully wet/soaking.
Applied a gob of Tresemme Naturals, finger-detangled.
Applied LA Looks Sport to each section of my hair (used a LOT more than I had previously used with KCCC).
Spritzed the canopy with a bit of SM Curl + Shine mist.
Let air dry.
My hair is mostly dry now, and I have great curl definition and minimal frizz. A bit of crunchiness that I didn't have with KCCC, but nothing a bit of scrunching can't handle!
Tentative conclusion: I CAN have a simple, nearly wash-n-go routine that works with a variety of products (HE or LE!) and gives me consistently good results!
(If it's alright, I'll come back with quick reports if I get similar/different results with different products).
EDIT: My hair is fully dry now and looking awesome! SO happy! *sigh* I wish I had reason to want clumps, though...my hair is thin and sparse, so if I had clumps, even lovely ones, I'd look like I had so little hair....x___x;
