I like the idea of keeping a hair care journal but paper is cumbersome and although there is an app for darn near everything I have yet to find a free journal type one that will let you prepopulate pages with specific items like I want to.

I plan to make my next post a template for keeping track of what I use on my hair each time I wash, refresh, DT/PT, whatever. I wash at night so it will take two days for each post to be 'complete'. This is mostly for my future reference to keep track of how products work for me. I chose this forum because its both appropriate for me and will keep me out of most people's way. Pic below is the best I've managed so far, though I don't remember what I did that night and the wave didn't last very long, hence the journal.
Feel free to ignore me, or to steal my template or info if it will help you.
