: 1st use BB Volume, SS CEJ, MGSG
Dew point wash day:
65, 50% chance rain
Dew point next day:
scalp itchy from previous wash, rewashed at 11am. Burt's Bees volumizing condish; good slip and thin enough to spread easily, smells kind of candy-sweet but not obnoxious, rinsed out fairly easily, left hair light and a little less slippy then the VO5 yest.
SS PT about nickel dollop
SS CEJ quarter-size, MGSG 4-5 pumps
scrunched SS CEJ into length only, one pump MGSG over top and fingercombed through, made part and added water using mod supersoak, scrunched in one oump MGSG per side & one add'l pump to length. plopped about 45 mins with one blast of heat, pixie diffused upside down and side to side until maybe 50% dry, did extra upside down to encourage volume, is pretty crunchy, let air dry since its still midday.
held up well thru to bedtime, still crunchy in spots, right front is getting straight at bottom as usual.
Next day results:
held up fairly well overnight, definitely pleased. I was gonna take a morning after pic
haha but we had a SNAFU at work and I had to go in early, ended up staying late too
barely thought about my hair, had gone pretty limp by the time I got home but I'm definitely trying this again. Oh, and no more itchy scalp.
New things to try:
would like to try condish only (leave-in), I like the way my hair looks but I miss being able to run my fingers through it. Will probably go productless next time. Need to try the vo5 and protein spray again but separately so I can tell which caused the itch.
