Adjusted my routine today...
Results are... Inconclusive, I guess.
I combed it differently in the shower. A few days ago I tried the "upside down" combing/rinse thing. Yeah, no. Lol! Not only was my neck screaming, but it broke up some clumps, and made the back... Odd.
Today I went back to tipping forward and then lifting the roots, except I combed from the crown to bangs forward. Then I did the normal LI/seal/stylers bit, tipping my head upside down and side to side to scrunch.
I had forgotten SM smoothie, so I put a dab of that with a dab of BRHG in my ends and plopped.
Curls spiraled up before my eyes!!
Then I plopped - for too long!! And between that and my messing with it too much while diffusing, it turned out just so-so. :/ (I may be due for clarifying, too.)
But I think if I hadn't "mishandled" it after styling, it would have turned out better! May try this again next time and report back!
