7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?

Like Tree493Likes

Round 2 day3: woke up late this morning and almost bunned it but because It still felt yucky from the okra I did a last minute wash over the tub. Co wash and RO With Giovanni TTTT leave in Giovanni direct. Forgot to bring my new batch of okra in with me so I just used GVPLSG. No time to diffuse much so it is still damp at the roots 5 hours later. Still turned out pretty good. Not my worst day for sure, would have been if I hadn't moved my butt I say a 7. 7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371146105.857231.jpg

I didn't take a picture of the bun but this is what it looked like after I took the bun out

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. : )Attachment 36320Attachment 36321

Day 4. I got a cut this morning and i left without her styling it. I was worried that she didnt give me enough layers and I'm still not sure since I didnt style it at all. It is crazy nasty but I agreed to the challenge! lol. Fortunately i have been home all day - not going out looking like this. I am going to coconut oil up here in a few and head to bed. Hopefully tomorrow's hair will be awesome!

Round 2 Day 3:

Good hair day today. Had a couple of realizations...prefer the ultra defining gel compared to the light gel (or AnGel) so will be adding that on top of the AnGel to give more hold because my hair just grew as the day went on. Also, I really prefer a side part and kind of wish I had done that when I was styling my hair. Hair wasn't frizzy as the day went on but it was just bigger, although I prefer the feel of the AnGel compared to the Ultra Defining Gel, hopefully mixing it will work. I'm going to my cottage for the next 4 days so hopefully I'll be able to post a picture a day but I may have to "restart" when I get back.

Washed last night with SM thickening shampoo on my roots (ends coated with condish), then added Ion Effective care with a couple drops of NPF and left in for an hour. Rinsed and used some SNTC condish and finger combed. Rinsed with cold water upside down while scrunching. I was trying to promote clumps so did my hair upside down (always have to finger comb out a bit because I'll get weird clumps otherwise maybe from my length?). Used cure care as leave in, sealed with GSO and then used beach spray, scrunched in LOOB, morrocanoil curl mousse and topped with BSHG. Scrunched out water. Plopped for 5 minutes, clipped and let air dry. Left it crunchy for overnight pineapple. Took out the pineapple this morning spritzed with just a bit of water and then used ouidad botanical boost on top. SOTC with GSO. I like how my hair has NO frizz. 7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371225030.278692.jpg7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371225168.005080.jpg

My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.
Love how it turned out from just air drying! Don't know if it's the BSHG or the protein treatment that did it, but my hair has a lot more volume and curl today. : )

Round 2 day 4: looks pretty good. Tried a new batch of okra gel. Not too sure about it. Doesn't seem to kill the frizz as well as other stuff but I'm not ready to give up yet
Co wash this morning with As I Am coconut co wash
RO with tresseme tn
Leave in As I Am leave in.
Styled with home made okra gel topped with hesmu.
The frizz is still there but you can't see it much in the pic so maybe I am just being hard on myself added Epsom to my okra this time and curls are a bit springier so that is good!
