: PT, AIA clarfying poo, SS PT, CIAB, DO sculpting spray
Dew point wash day:
Dew point next day:
still raining most of wash day
AIA clarifying poo, used this before makes hair feel stuck together, couldn't comb thru condish till I'd added a lot, and even then it was pulling some.
PT with SS PT & SS Caitlin's condish, left on about 3 hours
small amount SS PT
CIAB, 3 sprays DO sculpting spray gel to combat minimal frizz and add smoothness & shine, really liking this stuff!
combed thru leavein, rewet, combed part, scrunched and raked thru CIAB, scrunched w/ MFT, plopped 30 mins, pixie diffused a little more then halfway. Was drying a little rough and unruly, smoothed/scrunched in two squirts of DO SSG, didn't work well-too sticky, wet hands and added third squirt, definitely needs water.
holding well, soft hold, minimal crunch from gel, will wear out overnight, well defined but not super wavy, definitely respectable though.
Next day results:
woke up with rough, producty feeling hair, blaming it on the CIAB for now, wave didn't hold very well either but that's what's happens when my hair feels icky and I keep trying to smooth/fix it.
New things to try:
boots cream, MGSG + DO SSG, SS protein spray as LI instead of PT, CJ DailyFix (cowash), DO poo & co or masque, suave coconut, vo5 kiwi, ...
*** the CIAB was probably NOT the cause of the rough, icky hair this day, it was most likely the SS PT, there's something in it my hair doesn't like, can only use as a PT mixed with something else.
