Dew point wash day:
Dew point next day:
MGSG, VM gel
One pump MGSG in length after (pink) combing & quick-rinsing LI, 2nd finger combed throughout. Flipped/shook to loosen canopy, mod-SS before adding two nickels VM S2S (side-to-side), MF dried s2s & upside down, plopped w/ heat. Added dime more VM, pixie diffused to crispy-crunchy.
starting to like having crispy hair, it means I can't really mess it up..... If its not crispy I can accidentally pull out the wave or touch it too much and cause frizz, the crunch feels safe.
Next day results:
most of crunch came out overnight since I used the MGSG, SOTC'd what was left, hair really soft and shiny. No frizz most of day, got more loose/stray hair as day went on but not sure I'd call it frizz, wave definitely loosens faster than when i use VM gel by itself. Pic below is from this morning.
Second day refresh:
I hesitate to call it a refresh because I wasn't going anywhere and didn't really care but I had some escaped hair type frizz this am so I wet my hands and smoothed over the canopy. It dried with a bit of crunch but that came out on its own throughout the day.
Second day results:
looser wave, minimal frizz after smooth down above.
New things to try:
I guess I should try the other two gels I bought but I'm really not wanting to, may just return them. I ordered the Max Green Sculpting Gel (have the Styling gel), should be hard hold and more natural then VM gel, should be here next week.
