Dew point wash day: 73
Dew point next day: 73
Interesting weather?: rainy wash day
Cowash/Lowpoo: CJ DF
RO: SS PT
Leave-in: SSI okra
Styler(s): VM gel
Styling Technique: 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.
