I kinda pixie when I use Meza's method, too, holding each section for a count of 10. It worked well.
Here are a couple of shots from this morning. It's frizzier now; hasn't held up as well as I'd like, but I think that's due to the crazy weather we're having: 60 one day, 82 the next.
I wish I had been smart enough to take a pic yesterday, so you could see the difference. What I learned from seeing these pics - one, I am WAY overdue for a cut. Hello, triangle head! And two, my grays are more unruly than I thought. Sheesh.
This experiment has been so fun, I may do it again tomorrow with different products again. Three times in one week would be a record for me!
