7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?

Like Tree493Likes

Round 2, Day 3 (part 2). Woohoo! I got to redeem myself after this morning debacle. CJ Gentle Cleansing Shampoo, SS Caitlin's Conditioner (rinsed out completely). SS Protein Treatment combed in as LI, SS CEJ mixed with SS FHG. Gently squeezed out some extra water with flour sack towel and diffused without plopping. 7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371086967.100763.jpg7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371086978.345644.jpg7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371086990.891913.jpg

Haha I had a day 2 part 2 also. My waves really fell by the time inane home for lunch. So while it was heating I spritzed down my front pieces and scrunched in a burr load of SSCEJ scrunched and blasted that part with a bowl diffuser.

So here is my Day6: of Day1 hair.
Cowashed with AO GPB, used SSCT OHRR (not sure what the abbreviation for shescentit orka hair repair reconstructor) as LI then raked in CK Coil Jam, plopped then air dried, pineappled over night. Hair was still damp this morning, let it air dry til dry. I did no scrunching or diffusing.

Let me know what you honestly think please. May give this a go every now and then.

When I saw your pics- I thought our hair looks very similar in curl pattern! Can't wait to see the haircut pics!!! I have lots of layers- on the crown, around my face and pretty much the entire back. Tell her you want an inverted layered bob.

Round 2 Day 2:

Haircut day! Went to a deva certified salon today for my first ever dry cut, and it actually went fairly well. She told me about the devacurl method and i said how I was already mostly going CG. Obviously she cut my hair dry and then styled it. I realized I'm not a huge fan of clipping (especially at this length) nor scruching at this length, it just makes it look wonky so I rewet and styled it myself at home. MUCH BETTER! The first picture is of when I get home and the next ones are all just now after work (used deva styling cream and the ultra defining gel). Now I just have to force my part on the other side because I like my "bangs" to go towards the side with more hair.

The next couple appointments are just trims so she'll just cut it dry and ill go home and style it which works for me

Day 4: I'm really not loving my hair today. Usually my day 2 is my best hair. Less volume but more definition. Today it's just wonky. Not enough to be "bad" but not what I'd expected to wake up to. Took down pineapple, smoothed over a few drops of coconut oil to smooth frizz.

Round 2, Day 4. Up late last night so I took my hair down from pineapple and gently smoothed and did some light finger combing. Might need to add some CIAB before the end of the day, but I can't complain considering this is basically straight out of the pineapple hair.

Day 3 day2 hair. Squirted down scrunched in SSCEJ & SSFHG. Kept dunking length in a glass to try and clump. Diffused the heck out of it. Included second pic just cause is made me laugh. I didn't realize how I was feeling. Saw it and thought yep. That's what I think about my hair.

Shelly, I think we seriously could be hair twins. I believe we've talked about that earlier in a hair bio thread, but apart from properties and such, it just looks alike!

Day 3: it's 3rd day hair for me. Last night I spritzed with water and YTcarrots condish to give moisture, then scrunched in a little JCNS to seal. This morning I put it in a bun and spritzed the bangs section and scrunched a bit. It's supposed to be another hot day today and I'm outside all day for my job. : )7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371138408.831024.jpg7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371138482.455954.jpg

Soo i forgot to post yesterday I was very busy.
I had a job interview, and my hair was in a tight bun on my twist out from the day before.
I didn't take a picture of the bun but this is what it looked like after I took the bun out
