: UR curly poo, Bunch of co's, volumax mega gel
Okay so I was discussing my loose wave issue (complaining really) on the woes of a wavy thread and it was recommended that I try a hard hold gel so I picked up Volumax Mega, Tres gel (Tressemme), and Giovanni LA gel. When I wet my hair it felt odd so I had one of those lets-add-this-no-maybe-that-instead showers.
Dew point wash day:
Dew point next day:
UR Curly poo, made hair too oily so ...
nickel of DO condish then lots of AO GPB
more DO condish
volumax mega gel
put about dollar puddle of gel right on top of leave-in and combed all thru, did quick-rinse, squeezed out some. Flipped over to loosen canopy, scrunched and mod-soaked side-to-side. Plopped with heat blast, pixie diffused mostly dry, added one squirt DO SG over canopy with wet hands to smooth.
probably should have rinsed before gel, ended up with combo of fluffy/soft and hard crunchy, maybe need more gel or better distribution too. Wave formation and volume are good though, also very shiny. Will see.
Next day results:
pic below is from morning, less volume and wave but still presentable, didn't hold up though. Need to work on gel application.
