Wow I cannot imagine layering that many products on my LP hair! I am always amazed by the volume you get. Do you use a specific technique for that?

Lol yea I barely ever do all of that. And I just added in the Shea moisture styling milk today and it worked great! I usually just leave tresseme naturals in and that's it lol but that is my routine when I'm going somewhere special usually. Lol

Hmm well for volume I think I get it from plopping and pineappling my hair over night 😊 my best hair is usually second and third day because of the volume!

I plop after I style in the day and every night I pineapple with a satin scrunchie wrapped around only once. 😊 I think pineappling is what gives my my best hair days!

I really should look into pineappling. When I still had braces I used to sleep with my hair in a pony tail or a bun, but it gave me breakage (or well… as far as I can remember because this was ten years ago!) I should go find scrunchies and just try it.

I wish I could do that little by my curls need more than that. It's worth it though because I still don't spend too much time on my routine.

I hope it works for you 😊 I swear by it! Just bend over and wrap it around with a scrunchie in the highest ponytail you can. Then in the morning just release it, shake your curls gently, and apply product if needed. 💕

Day 6: Friday
Re-wet in the shower. Detangled with KCKT. Did not rinse out entirely, so it's also a mild LI. Scrunched out as much water as possible before using KCCC. Plopped for 30 min. I did all this before 10:00 in the morning.

The first two pictures are taken around 19:30 in the evening. The third picture is 02:00 and the last one is the next morning. I don't do anything to my hair while sleeping. I don't have a satin pillowcase. I'm a very active sleeper so I twist and turn all the time. This is as frizzy as my hair gets.

Grade for day 6: 7,8.



Day 7: Saturday
Washing day! Used De Tuinen low poo to cleanse, AO GPB as RO and KCKT as detangler and LI. Squeezed out as much water as possible. Then applied KCCC in three separate sections. For each section, I dipped in two fingers vertically until I hit the bottom, and then took them out again, working with whatever stuck to my fingers. I did not scoop or anything. Then I dipped one last time to scrunch in some when my hair was upside down. Plopped for 30 minutes.

I did all that before 09:30 in the morning. Pictures are taken around 00:30 in the evening and I had been touching my hair quite a lot because my curls were so pretty and I couldn't keep my hands off.

Grade: 8,5.

Ugh today is going to be terrible. It's 9 in the morning here and I have to go to dance practice in a bit. I picked up my mum's diffuser yesterday so I figured this would be a good moment to try that. Now I know why I haven't used one for years. It has ruined my hair completely. It's frizzy, fuzzy, undefined, stringy. I don't have time to hop into the shower again and fix it because I have to leave in fifteen minutes so I know I'll have to deal with this for the rest of the day. My scalp is itchy again. I hope it doesn't influence the upcoming days like it used to in the past.

I'm really disappointed because I had hoped this would help me reduce my 6-8 hours drying time (which, luckily, hasn't increased with KCCC). It doesn't matter whether I use warm or cold air.

When I said in my last post that it couldn't get frizzier than right after waking up… Well, it can: when I diffuse or worse, when I went to my hairdresser (who ruins my hair completely for a longer period of time. It seriously needs to recover after the heat she uses).

For my second day I did nothing but pineapple overnight, remove in the morning, and shuffle lightly at the scalp. 😊

By the way - and this is off-topic - I was so surprised to discover that you have children already. For some reason I assumed you would still be a student like me (I hope this doesn't offend you - it is not intended that way!). Do they have the same gorgeous curls as you do?

Thank you 😊 I am a student in college but missed a couple semesters because I am a stay at home mom right now. It's ok it doesn't offend me I know I'm young but I wouldn't change anything even if I could! Being a mother is amazing 💕 I have a 3 year old son and a 4 month old daughter. My son Isaac has wavy hair when it grows out completely but my husband likes to keep it short usually. My daughter Sophia has straight hair with a little bit of wave but I think it might be wavy or curly as she gets older. I'm hoping lol so she can be a curly girl too! Haha but if not it's ok 😊

I detangled some parts so my curls look a bit looser...and I am way too tangled to go another day. Lol but I can't believe I have made it to fourth day hair! And it's still a pretty good hair day 😊 I just Pineappled overnight and have not use any products but a spray of water on my hands after detangling.
