The same thing I've been doing for the last week or so....I co-washed with Wen Cleansing Conditioner, rinsed it all out, added a dab of Re:Coil, scrunched it in, plopped for 10 or 15 minutes, added a dab of Aubrey Mandarin Magic Gel, clipped the front, diffused for a couple of minutes and let if finish air drying.

I've been doing this everyday but switching off gels and I've been having pretty good hair days....of course, it could be the cooler weather!

I tried the Wen on a whim as I didn't think it would be anything special but I'm liking it. I'm planning on shampooing once a week though as they do contain a version of amodimethicone. I tried using it as a leave in but that seemed a bit much right now...maybe in the winter.

Take care,

Michelle

Loved my hair today! I detangled and put it in two buns saturday, with jojoba oil, elucence MBC,avocado butter and Giovanni 50/50 as a leave in . Just took out the buns today(still damp after 5 days!?) got in the shower to add some volume, and thats it! My curls are soft, and hang all the way past my shoulders because the buns stretched out the curls a little bit, so it was nice to change up my look a little bit. So low maintence and easy!

I saw that product package yesterday at the store and was tempted to get just the finish creme mentioned -I thought it may help with da frizz but alas I opted not to get it; have to see the Hair Doc in the morning so I shouldnt be experimenting quite yet.

Hmm today was just about the same for me since I am detoxing:
Wet hair (in shower) spray detangler (J&J No Tears), comb through, give light rinse and pulled back in a loose band - Doc orders.

I may tyr the KYJ thingy
I need products - CANNOT WAIT TO GET CLEARANCE to use again - I miss my hair !!!

I think I'm overconditioned so today I just water washed, detangled with my fingers every so gently since I used no condish, put in some HE SMU gel and mousse and airdried. Best hair day and ages! But we also had nice cool dry weather so that could be it.

Today, I accidently washed my hair with shampoo. I had no intentions to do so, but since I cannot see in the shower (I'm near blind without my glasses). I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh well. I dt'd and then conditioned again and put no products in my hair. It actually feels pretty good today, comparatively to how it has been lately. Maybe that's because I've been smearing on EVOO every night for the past few days and will continue to do so for at least another week. I'm at the point where I'll do almost anything, even if I hate the smell of olive oil.

I shampooed with TJ Nourish poo then applied TJ Nourish condish. Rinsed then applied leave-in. After shower, I applied re:coil then Abba Weightless Gel. Partially diffused, then air dry 1 hour. Scrunched the crunch with SIF. My curls turned out great. I don't normally use the TJ products but I think I'll start.

Well not really anything, except at lunch I had a little frizziness so I rewet some of it and put a tad bit of gel in, but I pretty much slept on it last night and it still looks good!

I showered, applied recoil and joiwhip, then after halfway through diffusing I decided my hair wasn't going to look good and blewdry it straight!

Today I used Jessicurl HCC, conditioned with Aloeba, used Re:Coil w/Fuzzy Duck gel on top. I think I used just a wee bit too much re:coil and not quite enough gel. I've got a lot of curl, but not as much volume as I like, but it's so soft. Maybe I'm just not used to it because I didn't have tons of crunch today. I don't feel like I'm having a good hair day unless I'm crunchy -- is that weird?
