Sure, it is possible.
Around my face, I've got waves and loose curls. In the back, there is a mad mixture of waves, loose curls, tight curls, and hair that won't curl. Not sure if you can tell by the pictures, but what would you say my curl types are?
Porosity? It seems to vary depending on the weather.......
And, what I eat (-__-)
I'd say I've got anywhere from fine to medium hair.
Dryness? A little.
No problems with breakage.
Dandruff? It starts to plague me after 3 days of no washing.
If it weren't for this Mid-Atlantic humidity, I wouldn't have to fight any frizz battles.
Sue me: I flat iron my hair. Moderately, FYI.
When I first went natural, I used Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine
Shampoo and Conditioner. Also tried Garnier Fructis Length & Strength
, Triple Nutrition
, Pure Clean
, and Daily Care
. My favorites out of the lot are Length & Strength
and Pure Clean
Wanting to try out other shampoos and conditioners, I bounced back and forth between Aussie and Herbal Essences. Aussie Moist
worked OK for me, but I really liked how Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship
treated my hair. Other likes were Herbal Essences None of Your Frizzness
, and Totally Twisted
When Herbal Essences went through their revamp, I stopped using their products because they seemed to be damaging. I also stopped using Aussie products. Around this time I was introduced to the CG method. Instead of following the method to point, I threw in my own little twist which seems to work just fine for me:
Day 1: Shampoo, Co-Wash, use LI
Day 2: Co-Wash, use LI (if needed)
Day 3: Co-Wash, use LI (if needed)
Day 4: Shampoo, Co-Wash, use LI
Shampoo: Aveeno Pure Renewal 2-in-1
or Organix Nourishing Coconut Milk
Co-Wash: Suave Naturals Juicy Green Apple
or Tropical Coconut
Leave-In: Aveeno Nourish+ Moisture
The only downside is that I go through the LI like it's nothing, and Aveeno is no penny pinching product! I have tried using Shea Moisture Organic Curl Enhancing Smoothie
, Curl & Style Milk
, and Curling Souffle
each as individual LIs, or combined. Unfortunately, my hair does not like Shea Moisture. I have also tried Organix Moroccan Argan Oil Blow Out Cream
and Defining Cream
separately and/or combined as LIs. I liked the results from the two, but the bottles only last me but so long.
Any suggestions on what Leave-Ins I could try? Preferably, I would like something fruity (citrus, berries). My hair seems to like fruity products best.
