Default 3rd and 4th Day Refreshers

I finally got my scalp calmed down by using tea tree oil (just apply a little to my fingertips and work into scalp.

Then I ran into the problem that although my hair looked pretty good 3rd and 4th day with no wash it would feel gunky (too producty). I then started adding about 1 T of ACV to my spray bottle, lightly misting it on, and it's eliminating that yucky feeling and adding some nice shine to my hair. The smell goes away very quickly.

I'm sure there are others who do this but since it's hard for us newbies to go through all of the posts I thought it might be nice to mention this quick fix again!

Do you find this works well to get rid of the gunky feeling that comes from hard-hold gel?

I've been used EcoStyler Krystal gel, which is great for curl pattern and hold, but leaves a thick residue that feels gunky on 2nd and 3rd day hair. I'd love to keep the curl pattern, but overcome that gunky feeling.

Curl Style: 3b/3c
Texture: Fine
Porosity: Normal

Co-wash: Giovanni TTTT (my hair loves this)
RO: GVP CB or DevaCurl One Condition, occasionally with honey
Gel: Biotera Styling Gel, BioSilk RHG
Styling: AG Re:coil, CJ Beauticurls, Lube

Hair hates Aloe Vera & Avocado

Yes it did seem to cut through some of the product! On the weekends I tend to experiment a bit. On Friday I ended the week with Curl Keeper in my hair and Pantene Mousse (by Friday I was on 3 day no wash only adding a bit more product each day to encourage the curl back). Friday morning I did change it up a bit and add Kinky-Curly Curling Custard to my hair dry and went to work like that. I was a bit heavy handed and left with nice but limp producty feeling curls. That evening I went home, decided to try a little ACV in my spray bottle, and spritz my hair. Now it wasn't like a miracle or anything but it significantly improved the feeling of my hair. I only did a light mist (not sopping wet) and did an almost dry plop afterwards. Honestly my hair came out so light and bouncy! I want to try this method again to see if the results are good. I do find with my hair that a technique may work once and not the next time. LOL, lots of trial and error!
