: VO5 body co, overnight PT
Dew point wash day:
Dew point next day:
50% chance of rain, none yet
vo5 body building cond. (orange); great slip, fairly thin, easy to distribute, took a bit to rinse out but hair felt light, silky smooth and clean
nickel size blob SS CC for slip 'brushed' thru with denman type comb, many squirts of SS protein spray, double usual leave-in amount of SS PT all distributed with wide toothed comb. intend to use as overnight PT.
none, spray has some hold
skipped post leave-in quick rinse, MF dried & plopped w/flour sack, diffused through plop, diffused moderately dry, no intention of styling
smaller clumps due to (lack of) technique, straighter side is wavier, wavier side has a few of those weird straight clumps at front. Maybe they are caused during plopping? Or from long plops? Lots of crunch from spray or extra co? Left it minimally damp but is impressively wavy.
Next day results:
scalp is a little itchy, crunch mostly came out overnight, can feel the condish residue in my hair (expected this), usually straighter side held wave fairly well, usually really wavy side (left) is mostly straight. Very confusing! As of 10:30 am scalp is very itchy, started after applying SS protein spray to frizz.
New things to try:
less protein spray, mix with leave-in.
