TY! I'm going to try scrunch and pump.. I was reading some threads about it but one thing is unclear. Do you quickly scrunch the product in all over then scrunch and pump section by section? Or is it adding the product section by section scrunching and pumping?
As far as co washing... my scalp feels clean but the lengths don't. I kind of add a lot of conditioner, massage a lot with the pads of my fingers, let it sit.. Then add some water, massage some more so it turns "milky", then massage as I rinse. My scalp feels really clean but the lengths feel weighed down (even if I don't follow up with a RO).
I think I'm just going to give up on a neat part. I'd rather have root curl and a messy part than a flat top. I also noticed that my waves were better when my hair was BSL (it's shoulder length now)... In pics with long hair I look to be about 2C and now I'm 2A/B.
