And get out of the shower and use a tshirt to scrunch it occasionally until it's dry. And that's it. :/ sorry i don't do much. But i also baggy with conditioner and honey and jojoba oil twice a week and sometimes Nubian Heritage Evoo and Moringa deep conditioner or Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie for a little protein. But that's all i do hair wise. Maybe it'll help you, idk. I just try to stay veryyyy moisturized.

Wow! You really do take good care of your hair! I will have to look into some of the products you mentioned. Last night, I washed my scalp and hair with Deva Curl One C, added a tiny bit of Angel, scrunched and diffused. My hair is very soft and the curls came out pretty good. I am going to try this for a awhile and see how it goes. Thank you so much for anwering my question, DepressedCurls. I live near quite a few stores where I believe I can get the products you listed. Believe me, I will write them down and take a list to the store with me.
Oooh, maybe a new HG routine?!
But yes thank you and no problem at all. I answer all questions and help the best i can. Definitely look into them. They're not very expensive at all and they work like a charm. Goodluck love!

I can't seal with EVOO or EVCO - too heavy for me. I can use them in TINY amounts for moisture, (or in a DT or RO), but for sealing I have to go light. The BEST I've found is mineral oil, tbh. I think that works really well for us porous gals, not well for low porous. But I've also used jojoba and SM elixir, which is mainly Shea and argan oil.

Still working like a charm. Using Tresemme Naturals Moisturizing conditioner still. And sealing slightly with jojoba oil. Or adding a little evoo in my conditioner while styling. I notice a little more moisture.

Pics are after a 14 hr shift, I was tired. But this is my hair with just conditioner. Loveee.

I think I'd only wash my hair twice that week, lol. But yeah, cheap conditioner+oils+honey works well for me. The trick is to leave it in for at least 15 mins.

I just tried this, my hair is still soaking wet so I have no idea what the outcome will be, but I have to say I love how simple this is. This morning I wayy overdid the product, and my hair was icky all day, I couldn't wait to get home, wash it all out, and not touch another styler. I'll update when my hair dries.

So my hair is mostly dry. First off, my hair dries SO much faster with conditioner only styling. Normally it takes half a day, but it hasn't been a full hour and my hair is almost completely dry. Also, my hair is SO soft, almost too soft, this reminded me how much I need a protein treatment, Overall, the results are very different. My hair is so soft that it's wispy and fly away, but I love how it feels. I'll have to play around with this a little more, and do a protein treatment. My hair isn't frizzy, it's just so wispy, if that makes sense. It's definitely different, but I do think there's a lot of potential.

Tried Oyin Handmade Hair Dew leave-in conditioner today as my only styler. WHOA. I think I'm in love.

You just have to play around a little. I personally have to add small amounts of condish while its drying to tame the curls. My ends get a little whispy so that's the area I concentrate on. Usually I finger curl the ends for great results.

Thanks, I'll try that. I like how my hair looks today, very full and voluminous, which I love, and not much frizz going on at all. My ends feel a little dry though, I'll definitely try using more conditioner next time, and maybe sealing with some argan oil.
