Default CJ DailyFix, SS protein spray, MGSG, DO SSG

Dew point wash day: 59
Dew point next day: 45
Interesting weather?: yeah, I'm trying to figure out a summer/high dew routine so now the dews are low again, yippee!

Cowash/Lowpoo: Curl Junkie DailyFix, thinish consistency, easily spread, didn't need a ton, seems to clean well, left hair feeling moisturized and smooth but not heavy or coated, very impressed!
RO:
Leave-in: SS protein spray, 4 squirts worked into length and finger combed thru.
Styler(s): MGSG + DO SSG

Styling Technique: MGSG, 2 pumps worked into length and smoothed/raked thru, combed thru and did part. Scrunched in 3 squirts DO SSG to each side and mod-supersoaked, smoothed final squirt over canopy. MFT dried and plopped 30+ mins w/ one heat blast, pixie diffused to maybe 75% dry.

First Impressions: good wave/spirals at ends, better then CIAB, feels smooth/soft so far, some crunchy bits, not bad, happy so far.

Next day results: looked good last night but fell fast this morning as it always has in low dews, felt sticky/rough too, MGSG seems to be doing that, sigh, it feels good as long as I don't try to get my fingers through it. Will try a variation of this once dews are higher.

New things to try: combing hair straight back during styling, no part, not sure how I'll get clumping towards front? Protein leave-in + Boots cream or ??? I'm tired of the rough, sticky hair I can't get my fingers thru, gonna leave out all stylers and air dry next wash.
