I usually use and mix two puddes of RR and CC and then rake.... that is it.... Perhaps cut down the plopping for fifteen minutes.....maybe ten.... I just started using jessicurl last week... and it's worked wonders for my hair....
I have always been a curly girl who always wanted straight hair till my old hairdresser convinced me to go curly. I have been styling my hair for about three years and my hair keeps getting better and better. I have a variety of routines but have cut down on experimenting products and found a good stylist who cuts my hair (although he cuts it wet, its hard to find one where I live, but I am happy with him).
