For those 2as looking in who are so jealous everyone's hair is so curly and beauteous even on what are considered off days. I present my pretty "eh" hair.

Day 4. After the late night yesterday, I overslept a bit and was rushing evening than normal. Eden Works Coconut and Shea Co-Wash, Mop Top Daily Conditioner (note to my hair twin, Chloe- I really like this conditioner- not thrilled with the gel, but planning to try medium hold next time). Rinsed out all conditioner. Darcy's Botanicals Cream Gel (on the fence about this one- might like it more in lower dews), Mop Top Light Hold Gel (see earlier note). Scrunched, plopped, air dried.

And this is what this challenge is all about. Heh.

I showered this morning, conditioned, and didn't put any stylers in. This is my hair plain naked. It's not quite all the way dry here...

Day 5: Tropical storm is bearing down on us, dew point is 76 today- all my windows are fogged up and it was really hard to get good pics!

Used Uncle Funky's Curly Magic topped with LAL Mega gel for hold. This is a new product for me today, and so far I think it's a contender with okra! I love the pump, the globbiness of it, and the instant clumping effects as I was applying it. My hair is sooooo soft, no crunch to scrunch, and feels amazing. We'll see how it holds up through the day. I will probably be pinning my wonky front curls back- they always tend to just hang in my face.

Day 4:

Dewpoint: 9

DIY Gelatin/Egg Yolk protein treatment (left on for about 5 minutes)
Poo: Mixture of honey, Aubrey Organics Blue Camomile Hydrating Shampoo, and Aubrey Organics Blue Camomile Hydrating Conditioner
Condish: Desert Essences Coconut Condish, rinsed out IceQueen style
Post-Condish: KCKT (which was mostly rinsed out, IceQueen style)
Style: Giovanni LA Natural Styling Gel (Strong Hold), applied in the shower in a supersoaker/scrunch-and-pump method
Drying: Microfibre mitt and clipped (trying for a less voluminous cross-clipping method today). Committed to air-drying and I'm so glad I did. Curls are more defined, and I have a feeling they'll last all day (instead of getting poofy by 3pm!)

So many gorgeous curlies here! I'm impressed by how few bad hair days we have. I mean, we're so hard on ourselves, claiming we have a bad hair day (at least, this goes for me) whereas no one really notices.

Day 4
Routine: Washed my hair with a sulfate poo to remove the polyquat from CJ CQ. Used Aubrey Organics as RO. Smoothed in a pea-sized amount of CJ Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil condish as LI. Applied FSG without having squeezed out any water. Then started squishing, plopped for an hour, then let it air dry.

Time of picture: 14:45.
Weather: temp 57 - humidity 83% - dew 52.
Hair grade: 6/10.



Wow, I just compared today's and yesterday's picture, what a difference make-up makes! Never noticed it.

Okay edit: I'm surprised that my hair turned out this nicely. It used to look terrible on washing days, but GPB and FSG have changed that massively, and even with my LI experiment it isn't too bad. Hold wasn't as good as usual though, so I'm going to skip CJ Beauticurls Argan & Olive Oil all together and keep it in case I need a moisture shot. I think I can use it occasionally, but not more than once in a long time.
