Default WHY!?

So I decided to do my hair tonight and pineapple overnight just to see if this technique will work for the winter... So I did my usual the "Glisten to me" spray, followed by KCKT, brushed some KCCC and WSP through with my Denman, scrunched the bejesus out of it and plopped in my MF towel for about 5 minutes. Took the MF off scrunched in a little more KCCC and plopped in a flour sack towel for 20 minutes or so. Then I scrunched in some Aussie Tizz no frizz and just a dab of Alagio CC balm just to see what it did and pixie curled until more than 90% dry. My normally 3A curls are almost 3B!! plenty of volume and root curl and softness no frizz... figures its 7:00 on a Sunday and I am watching TV on my couch alone, well me and my head of gorgeous curls!! Bah! Hopefully it still looks good in the AM!
I'm glad that there are people out there that understand why this is frustrating! haha

I can't tell you how many times while I'm doing my hair to get out or just because it's WASH DAY my hubby says to me. "Oh you have to do your hair because you're going to a photo shoot right" Even if I have NO place to go I still HAVE to do my hair! I'll venture out sometimes without makeup (in the Summer only I have more color then) But the HAIR has to be in place!!!!!

And the second day hair left much to be desired of course. I should have just pineappled instead of using a sleep cap. I guess it's all about trial and error :/
