Like Tree1287Likes

I finally figured it out.

I have to touch every curl to really get the definition I want. I have been using SM raw shea restorative conditioner as an LI and using the "leave no curl unturned" technique with great success. I finally can do a wash n go that works.
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
*sigh* my hair is usually really soft after rinsing out the dc(olive oil & honey) but not today...I should have just used shampoo instead of the "cleansing" cream.
-rinse out
gvp conditioning balm
-moisturizer/leave in
CJ SL & QB BRBC
hair still not soft
hair was already in twists so...the end.lol
4c wiry thick nappy low porosity hair
Poo: SM black soap
Rise out/Detangler:
DC/: Avocado+ oil + Honey
Spritz: Oyin J&B
Moisturizer: OH Dew
Sealant:BSP/Bask tapioca cream
*Washed with NBD Black Soap
*Conditioned with Mop Top Daily conditioner


Styling:
*AOMM for curl boosting
*Knot Today with oil all over/ CJ Beauticurls mixed with AV Totally Twisted on my ends

Dyed my hair black.
Back in August I tried to dye my hair red. The color I chose was cool for about a week, but I ended up hating it. It was more of a brassy-brown than red. And then when my much darker roots began to show...

I just couldn't stand the thought of letting my natural color grow back with that horrid dye job still visible. So I just dyed my hair a color closer to my natural color. The dye is a bit darker, but that's okay. I am back to loving my hair again!
Excuse my face.
I've gotten lazy in my old age.
This is an ancient wash and go using the Kinky-Curly products. I think I washed my hair on Wed or Thursday. I've been wearing it up since yesterday.

And, yeah, I'll go to class like this.

Washed my hair with Phytospecific deep restructuring shampoo. Love this stuff. Very moisturizing.

Deep conditioned with MJ RR. Twisted with MJ daily conditioner and BBC.

I am loving the MJ BBC
Oooooh WEE! SO glad to get rid of this blow dried bun.

Shampooed with Queen Helene's Smoothing Shampoo, Y.A.M.ed my hair in sections, applied a plastic cap, a hat and wrapped my head in a scarf (I don't feel like whippin' out the heat cap). I'll let my hair marinate for a few hours.

I'll rinse and twist it up....not sure with what.

*UPDATE*
Used B.A.S.K. Silk Latte Hair Milk as a leave-in, and twisted with the Sevenfold Butter Blend, and Claudie's Hair Gel.

But as a moisturizing hair lotion? I love it.

Big Chopped last week so I'm still experimenting with my hair products to see which ones work best together.

Today I Co-washed with Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture. I towel blot my hair and added some Giovanni Direct Leave in, then some Ecostyler gel (argan oil). At first my hair was white. I guess the GDLI had not been absorbed by my hair yet. So I put my steaming cap on for a couple of minutes and bam! My TWA was transformed. #washandgo
