7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?

Like Tree493Likes

Day 5. I did a DT with coconut oil this morning - probably 90 min- 2 hours..I just slathered it on dry hair - made sure to really soak it in on the worst spots. (I also rubbed it on myface, elbows, knees, heels! ). I Washed twice with Texture My Way Hydrate shampoo. I was a little worried because my hair felt a bit greasy in spots yet, but I went on anyay.. Conditioned and leave in with Elucence Moisture Balance. Added a lot of Curl Keeper and then topped that with L.A. Looks Mega Gel. I diffused a bit to get the drying started.. I dont know if it was the gel or what but it did dry way faster today than other days. I diffused and sotc - I added some more curl keeper and sprayed my roots a bit with lavender water.. hoping to add some volume. Those hairs in the front always dry wonky - so I rewet and worked them - then were better before I messed with them!

Overall very happy but still considering more layers in the back- she said if i wanted more to let her know and she'd fix it .. or i can wait since it isnt bad. There is a spot where it is noticeably longer on the left than the right but I can fix that myself. My hair was cuter than it looks in pics - got lots of compliments today!
^^^^^. Yep, we're hair twins! I think our hair looks exactly the same!!!! . Corrina is my other, but she has more spirals- but she and I like almost all the same products. What are your properties? Climate?

Day 4

Second day hair today and I think it looks pretty good. I smoothed a tiny bit of Watered down Nexxus Hydralight conditioner to hydrate and refresh a bit. I really do LOVE BRHG, I get great multi-day hair whenever I use it.

I tried figuring it out myself "last time" but I had no idea what I was doing. I have very different hair all over my head. some of them are course.. others - especially right on top (that "extra" hair that ends up on the heavy side from parting) is very thin and fragile. My hair underneath doesnt curl as much as the hair on top. I notice in one of your pics you have some pieces in bottom front that arent as curly - I have those same spots!

Climate - I live in Iowa and it does get quite humid in the summer. We've been getting tons of rain, but not much heat yet this summer. Unseasonably wet and cool here lately. Winter is very dry.

I usually tuck that bit behind my ear, lol. Trust me, my hair wasn't this cute when I first started!!!!! I think yours will look even more like mine as you get your properties straightened out and experiment with more products. Good luck!

I just have to say that I love your hair Chloe! Anyway, love looking through this thread each day and maybe I will do a second round when I get some time too.

My Hair:
2c
Fine, low porosity, med/high density
BSL - going for mid back to waist

HG: currently
just washing with a low poo that contains protein (Alba Naturals Coconut) and using Suave Naturals Coconut as both a RO and LI. No stylers right now, but this gives me pretty good curl, definition, low-ish frizz, and it feels and looks good. Also an occasional PT (liking the Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula which has cones) seems to be key for me.

Modified CG since February 2013

Round 2 day 5; having some build up issues, I think from polyquats poo last night and a deep treat this morning, used a new cream gel looking nice, 8 today I think 7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?-imageuploadedbycurltalk1371322162.438879.jpg

Day 2- here is my day 4 hair- super frizzy! all I did was add a small dollop of knot today and a little GSO. it was ok for a few hours but then the frizz was annoying me and its too hot so I pulled it back with a clip.

I refreshed last night with some LOOB (went out for dinner with friends), so this morning when I refreshed it felt really dry, but I think it was just producty. Regardless, I used water to spritz and then a little ouidad botanical spray and scrunched in SM milk. Not the best hair day, probably a 4. Lol. It's 2nd day hair.

Then today I went to the mall and got a few new products! I got redken body full light conditioner, redken body full volume amplifier, and redken soft spin 05 gel (used and liked in the past. She also have me a sample of diamond oil (cone free!). So of course I had to wash my hair! Lol. My hair is drying now, will post a pic later.

My hair loves protein, plopping, and diffusing! Trying to find a way to style and air dry.
Day 6 - Day 2 hair! My first successful curly day 2! Others have ended up being pulled back. I went to bed with a satin bonnet but it was gone when I woke up and my hair was CRAZY. I spritzed well with lavender water and once my curls were reformed I diffused. These were taken before it was fully dry. It had more volume when i sotc but i got drenched by rain after that. ha! Now that it is dry again it still looks ok - had to rescrunch.. Here's hoping for day 3!

Really bad hair day!
Cowash suave everlasting shine condish.
RO Bioinfusion hydrating condish.
LI KCKT
Seal grapeseed oil
KCCC gel.

Giving up on oils other than doing Hot oil treatments once in a while. Just makes my hair look and feel dirty. My bioinfusion has grapeseed and avocado oil in it. Tomorrow will use a but as LI and see how that goes.

Has anyone tried Punto 1 of 6 from Rudy Profumi? Found it at Ross super cheap so thought would give it a try. Seems CG friendly...

You will definitely get there, I also think my regimen is helping me. A lot of gel, and I am experimenting with minimal to no protein and I started seeing lasting results with my curls. But thank you so much this really made my day!
