Mixed signals from hair today!

So first off, my hair is SUPER CURLY right now.

Today I was all excited to try Giovanni SaS low poo and condish. (The new formula, with no sulfates or cones).

The poo was a little more "stripping" than I had expected or wanted, but didn't feel like it was causing any major problems.

The condish was REALLY thick, which gave me high hopes, but it didn't feel so great in my hair. :/ It had virtually no slip, and my hair needs LOTS of slip!!

I added in some Ion Effective Care and combed both through. Then I rinsed and did LI, stylers, plopped, etc all as normal.

Took down the plop and HOLY CLUMPED UP SPIRALS!!

I diffused about 75%, and am waiting to see how they hold up after SOTC when it's totally dry. Probably could have used a little more of my hard hold gel.

Really confused by the mixed messages from my hair today, but happy I had good curls! Here's hoping they last!

As for the Giovanni - the verdict is still out. May try mixing some oil with the poo next time. The condish was nice mixed with the IEC!

Well, mini-update here...

Curls are ok now, but not great. HOWEVER, I had to run some errands and I was outside where it was hot and humid, dews of 79%, and breezy. I think if I'd stayed in they would be better.

I (finally!!!) get a haircut tomorrow, so I'm hoping between that the sign of good hair today means my hair will cooperate more now!

I wonder if you need more protein.

I always need more protein. Lol!

But there is protein in the GSaS, and in the IEF. I'll be doing a PT/DT this weekend!
