So... 4a/b's What did you do to your hair today?

Like Tree1287Likes

Last night I washed my hair in 6 sections using the Creme of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo, conditioned with the Shea Moisture Purification Masque (was tempted to leave it in but it has clay in it), and applied the SM Yucca Milk in the shower. After that absorbed a bit, I sectioned and applied blue Eco Styler. It was still damp when I went to bed but I put it in a ponytail with my satin scarf.

This morning I took my ponytail down and spritzed with water. Once it's dry I'll moisturize and fluff. I am thinking that applying product in smaller sections (sigh) and getting my roots is the key to decreasing tangles and matting, but my goodness it's killing my beloved volume.

My hair is still looking nice from my DT I did on Saturday. But it needed freshening up.

I co rinsed with Giovanni 50:50 Moisturizing Calming condish and JASON Apricot super shine. I gently finger detangled.

After towel drying my hair, I applied shea butter, olive oil, and coconut oil to my hair. Yum!
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!



3rd day WnG: this morning oiled w/ grapeseed oil then later sprayed with water & Oyin Frank Juice.

Hair was puffy and I looked like a soccer player.

put on one of my bootleg hooded bands...yay AE!!

It's sorta sticky, IMO. The water first helps though. I do the same on my daughters hair now (water first), Once I used all FJ and her hair was sticky and lint magnet-y.

I bought a pack of bands that were truly seamless but I can't remember who made them.

One plus of the DIY version is that you get a gradation of sizes ~ from the foot sections to thigh. I cut 1.5 inch(foot to knee) pieces increasing to 2 inch(up to thigh) pieces and rolled/cuffed them to make the bands

Next I need to find some fun colors to make a set for my daughter.

Wash-n-Go Day IV

Hair is in a pineapple from the night before - I was getting ready to go to the gym. I might just leave it up today.

This is the last day of this WnG. I'm going to wash, DC and do a twist-out and possibly dry bun for the week since the weather is back to being cold.

Presto! - I figure I avoided excercise for years because of my hair, I may as well take advantage of having a much easier time now that I'm natural

I ain't thirsty. There's plenty of fish in the sea, but I don't want all of them, can I have some standards? Or do we just have to settle, for someone's who meh and will do.

^ I checked on the ingredients list after reading your post. It seems that the Frank Juice has rosemary whereas the J&B doesn't (as per Curl Mart's list). Oyin states that Frank Juice has Frank. and Myrrh.

Second day hair with my new baby daddy, Blue Ecostyler. Fluffed with Oyin Whipped Pudding (fail, way too thick), then added Smoothing Lotion (win) and a bit more gel on top to try to get rid of whiteness (didn't work). Diffused hair for a few minutes, whiteness gone!
