7 Day Challenge - who's up for it?

@lauraimes this is natural. I had a good bangs day today but it's a lucky occasion!

After styling. I use my bangs rather long because my left eye is blind and I feel safer with it covered! Like a pirate LOL.

Ps @sixelamy this is my back. see how the hair looks separated in smaller strands? That's what the coconut oil pre poo did to me! I couldn't rinse it completely no matter what. It feels oily. Unfaaair! :'(

A 2C, hopefully something more as my hair gets redefined. Lots of chemical/heat damage to get rid of! Currently at shoulder length, aiming for mid-back.

(Any HtBlack you find anywhere on the internet is most likely always moi! :3)
Aw thank you, sixelamy! I probably am being way too hard for myself. That's why I created this thread: What do you like about your hair today?

HtBlack, your natural bangs are fun and playful! I wish I had a curl like that. I mean, I like my own bangs, but I think a curl like that just looks fun. And that's some clever use of your bangs. I'm sorry to hear that your left eye is blind though

Beautiful hair HtBlack! I still think it looks good, but the oily feeling is no good! I find it interesting you keep your eye covered like that, that's a creative way to not wear a patch or sunglasses.

Laura, I just wish they'd always behave like that! Sadly they rarely do. And aw it's okay, it's been like that since birth. ^.^ no biggie.

And thanks sixelamy. (: I keep it covered mostly because it's slightly strabic so I find it a bit embarrassing... but a patch would totally draw attention. XD I hate stares!

I'm joining this because I'm still learning how to do this shorter hair and maybe it will help me keep track of what works and what doesn't!

Day 1 (yesterday)
I washed with Garnier Come Clean (yes it has a mild sulfate, but my hair appreciates a sulfate wash here and there because it's fine and it never really dries me out anyway), then put in GVPCB and left that in while I did my "shower things", then I decided maybe I would just leave the conditioner in so I flipped my head upside down and finger combed my hair so it was all going that direction. Then I decided to rake in my KCCC AND my LA Looks gel which I've never done before (usually just the KCCC and then scrunch in the LA Looks later when I'm upright). Then I got out of the shower and put my hair straight into a plop without flipping back up and finding my part or anything. Then I diffused, also without ever flipping back up to find my part (I usually like to go find my part!). Then of course I SOTC.

I kind of like it! I'm about to go shower and do my hair for today, I'll be back...

Style: EcoStyler Olive Oil <3
Dry: Diffuse or air dry, or both...depends on my mood

Day 6: 7/10

This is the whole reason I got this hair cut! I'm finally able to get decent 2nd day waves. I've been wearing my hair straight a lot, and I really hate straightening it. I can tell it's healthy, because it's straightens sooo easily compared to what it used to do.

It's not the best hair... I like my left side better where it flips out.. but it's not bad. Sporting the messy wavy beach-like hair today.

Washed with Kiss My Face Whenever Conditioner last night,used Komaza Care Coconut Hair Milk as a leave in, then KCCC on top. Diffused to 80%. Got up this morning and put some CJ Smoothing Lotion in and some GF Pure Clean pomade on top.

Day 7: 6/10

I was so exhausted from working both jobs yesterday that I got up late and didn't do a darn thing to my hair this morning. I finger combed a little and put clips in, that's it.

Sixelamy that right there is why I'm jealous of all you waives! I can hardly pull off decent 2nd day hair, much less 3rd day. If I tried, my curls would be frizzy and almost matted together! It would make detangling a nightmare.
3a-3b, medium texture, medium porosity, color treated. 5 years CG

CO-wash: Suave Naturals, Tresemme Naturals
Rinse Out:GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave in: KCKT
Styler: CHS Curl Keeper, KCCC, SM Coconut Hibiscus Gel Souffle
I wanted to end my 7 days with good hair.. lol

I washed when I got home from work, and was excited I received my CJ conditioner yesterday so had to use it! I think my hair is finally settling into this new hair cut and I have a much better technique.

Low Poo: Sevi Seabuckthorn Berry - I really love this low poo, I was on the fence about it, but have decided I love it, and it smells amazing.
RO: CJ Argan & Olive Oil
LI: CJ Beauticurls Leave In - finally tried my sample of it. It made me a bit itchy, but seems to have subsided.
+ KCCC and diffused to about 80%
