I used LA Looks Gel (Hold 9)+V05 Strawberries and Cream Conditioner on wet hair and air dry. I am not sure if I used too much because it looks wet still, almost stringy? I'm going to have to experiment with the amount I use.

I have tried LOOB + TW but it didn't work that great on me. I might try LOOB under the Gel, see what happens.






weird lighting.




Oh and it's just recently cut, it used to be BSL.

It does look wet, but the I think the style and the curls are fabulous!

Thank you! (=

I need to try something to make it not look so wet, even though it really isn't that wet.

Might be an obvious question but did you scrunch out the "crunch" from you gel? I really like the length! I can't see your face but it looks flattering on you!

I did scrunch out the crunch when it was completely dry, like 4.5 hours after I washed it.

And this is a picture of how it looks, overall.

Here it is, dry.




Sorry for the weird faces and Spongebob.

Hmm, I like the curls but I'm not sure about the length.

Thank you! (=

I am not sure about the length yet. I think I should let it grow out about an inch or two.

I love it that length. That is the length I am contemplating. I wish I had your thickness

Thank you all for the compliments.

My hair has always been thick, you can take some of it!! Even though I am unsure about the length it's nice is that it doesn't touch my back so I don't have to move it around when putting jackets on and taking them off or when sitting in the car it doesn't rub the chair, which always used to bother me. The little things.

The process - I condition with V05 Strawberries and Cream, I don't bend over since my hair is short and it usually frizzes up my hair. I leave wash out all of the conditioner. When I am out of the shower, before I get dressed I put a dime size of gel mixed with a dime size of conditioner. After I get dressed and everything I finish doing my hair which is really just adding a bit more gel (maybe two more dimes). I do it all with my hair sleeked back, parts, I think aren't too flattering, plus it puts my hair in my face and which leads me to touching it.
