I feel so boring....I basically do the same thing everyday because I workout a lot...
1. Rinse or cowash with HE Dangerously Straight and rinse that out
2. Add about a heaping unmelted tablespoon of coconut oil to my soaking wet hair.
3. Mix Qhemet BRBC or ASHC with a little Devacurl Set it Free in my hands and apply to 5-10 sections.
4) In the AM, release and shake and allow it to finish air drying.
I'm planning to do some twists or straighten soon though.
Poo: CON Sulfate Free poo Rinse out: Tresemme Naturals Leave-in: CJAOO Daily Cond Styler: KCCC sparingly and Ampro Olive Oil Gel where needed DT: KBB Lucious Locks Mask + EVOO/Avocado
I'm pretty boring too, between washes. Dry styled using a smidge of this and mixed in my palms and scrunced in -- mostly Set it Free, Jessicurl WDT, KBB Hair nectar. I'm getting a trim tomorrow and want this to last another day.
-Co-wash with V05 Moisture Milks Passion Fruit Smoothie (still not convinced that I'm protein sensitive at this point)
-used GF Sleek and Shine on each section mixed with HB Tea Tree Oil
-Put hair in two large twists going back (french twist?) and wrapped with scarf
-Keep covered and oil scalp and ends when needed until Hair Day Wednesday!
Confusion in the front/4a in the back and around the sides

Keeping it krazy simple
I'm so lazy when it comes to my daily routine. I co-wash with Sunsilk Captivating curls conditioner and use a wide tooth comb to detangle. After rinsing, I get out of the shower and apply a little bit as a leave in along with Curly Hair Solutions Silk Leave-In Conditioner. Its left to air dry and do its thing.
I had my first bad hair day with my Elucence + glycerin + oil leave-in combo with KCCC a few days ago. I had very dry hair brittle hair which has never happened with KCCC as my gel.
I guess that means my Elucence days are over now that dry winter air is here. So after playing around with BWC leave-in for a few days I went back to Curl Friends (a thicker, heavier leave-in) today. Today I....
washed w/ MOP Pear
conditioned w/ All Soft
spread jojoba butter on my wet hair (I want to seal in moisture)
This thread is so helpful for a n00b like me! Thank you ladies!
I second that! Their advice really helps a new girl out. Its hard getting a routine down. I thought I may have had a good one, and then it got wicked cold up here! No more wetting in the morning. Here was me today:
Last night, I dampened my hair with a spritz (aloe vera juice, castor oil, a little conditioner). I did 6 sections, smoothed GDLI in to them, then homeade shea/coconut butter and braided the sections. Put on a satin scarf and went to bed.
Woke up, un braided, finger combed with some AOHR, put brushed some eco-styler on the front and edges, did a modified puff with a goody headband, then a regular scarf to lay down the edges. After 15minutes(enough time to give the kids breakfast), took the scarf off and done! Not my best hair, but I looked halfway decent. I almost slid down the icy stairs trying to look at it in the window reflection.
Last perm 8/07, big chop 5/08, several mini chops since
Fine, medium density, low porosity. PJ in recovery

My Niece's Wedding. It rained and rain was forecast in DC last weekend so I traveled to the East Coast with a strawset using lottobody 50-50 diluted with water. Kept the curls unseparated until the night of the wedding and then separated them. It looked cute although I looked a littled tired and had jet lag.

Reason: Left out Event
I had some straight pieces intheback that were drinving me crazy for the longest and I just could not wait until I had the money to go to the salon so I cut them my self. No more straight pieces!!!!! today I co washed with TJ Nourish then styled with my homemade moisturizing spritz, Giovanni direct leave in, Curl junkie curl creme, homemade flaxseed gel and I tried set if free. I dont think I really need it. My hair does not look any better or worse. Well I can drop that from my routine.
I used Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Nectar as a rinse out. Then I applied Aloe Vera Gel. I tied on a bandanna until I finished getting dressed. I don't think that counts as plopping my curls, but it did absorb some of the excess water on my hair. It came out pretty good today.
Last nite I oiled scalp and hair with Vatika oil. Cowashed and Conditioned with TJ Nourish (down to my last bottle I have to re up today). Use Giovanni direct leave in with a little mop top. Used SMSB leave in and some home made flax seed gel. i used a little KCCC on the front ( it is the only thing that really works for my very frizzy front) Sealed it all with a little homemade shea/cocoa aloe. I am so glad they started selling the KCCC at my whole foods I have to go hair product shopping at whole foods today
I think I might do a mayo treatment sometime this week. It's been a month. It just takes so long to do... *sigh*
-Condition with V05 Passionfruit + Aubrey Organics
-Detangle in shower (detangle three times month, usually, pretty lazy about that so it's good I did it last night)
-Spritz with H2O+tea tree+clove after drying
