Oookay. Day 3! A tough day for my hair... Not really curly, just messy and poofy. I think this has to do with my new tendency to diffuse! I'll let it air-dry tomorrow and see what happens.
Dewpoint: 10 (up to 21 today)
Weather: 12oC (up to 23oC today), 89% humidity
Pre-poo: a bit of sweet almond oil on my ends
Poo: Giovanni Blue Camomile Hydrating Shampoo mixed with local honey and Giovanni Blue Camomile Condish
Condish: Desert Essences Coconut Condish, IceQueen style
LI: KCKT (just got this yesterday, giving it a shot despite the fact that my hair usually hates leave-ins)
Style: Giovanni LA Natural Styling Gel (Strong Hold), applied in the shower in a supersoaker/scrunch-and-pump method
Drying: Microfibre dusting mitt and clipped (Deva Cross-clipping along the part; Deva Glamour-clipping throughout the rest). Air-dry for an hour, diffuse 'till 80% dry.
3A/2C | fine | high-po length, low-po roots | medium density | shoulder-length
DE Unscented Condish

After Shower: Homemade FSG with added gelatine
+ bi-weekly protein DIY treatments (gelatin and egg yolk)
