Dew point wash day:
Dew point next day:
rainy wash day
My hair seemed overmoisturized the last week or so, think the lack of protein in the daily fix plus the purported moisture in the MG gels caused it. When I scrunched my wet hair after co-washing it was mushy and barely held any wave so I used the SS PT, put it in a shower cap and left it in for rest of shower (maybe 5-10 minutes, so not really a PT), wave held way better after just that little bit. Did LI & patted water on my scalp to smooth tine lines rather then quick rinse to keep more protein in. Scrunched out excess h2o and flipped/loosened canopy, fixed part and raked thru VM gel S2S (maybe half-dollar each), scrunched in another quarter each side and squished length together to reform clumps and rescrunched. Dried with FST s2s & USD, pixie diffused as usual, got good crunch all the way to roots, good waves and clumps, left maybe 25% damp to air dry.
Next day results:
frizz and loose waves, its rainy still and the VM gel scrunched out almost as soon as I laid down last night. .???
Second day refresh:
Second day results:
New things to try:
I was doing a second application of VM gel after plopping, think I need to revisit that.
