I wet my hair and put GF Antihumidity Cream in it. I had the best hair day since the weather turned hot and humid. I had forgotten about the cream and was able to squeeze out enough. Tomorrow I'm going to use some FrizzEase! Yeah for high humidity and heavy cones! Today was my first frizzfree day and I had some great ringlets!
Um, nothing, lol.

It did just fine.
Kiva! Microfinance works.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
Condished with MyHoneyChild HoneyNutt
Raked then denman MyHoneyChild pomade
Scrunched in BRHG

It looked great wet and awful dry. I couldn't SOTC some of it and the back just poofed up with little wave. NOT a good combo for me Can't wait to re-do my hair tomorrow.

I'm on day 3, but I washed with Loreal pro vive and used kbb mill as a li. Then I mixed a little bit of kbb nectar with kccc to style. I refreshed this morning with a little nectar and was off.

I'm pretty happy with the way this method has been working.

Mix of 3s, thick, coarse, medium porosity

Current hair styling technique: rake with a scrunch at the end. (works with my coarse hair)

I co-washed with Suave Aloe & Waterlily. Used Sally's GVP conditioning balm as a rinseout. Scrunched in a little CJ CCCC and scrunched in some LA looks sport gel on top. Scrunched with micro fiber towel and clipped the roots near my sidepart and let airdry. Once dry, I took out the clips and gently scrunched out the tiny bit of crunch

I have nice soft ringlets with a just a little frizz. But I did get a nice compliment on how soft and curly and frizz free it looks-even though I think its a bit frizzy. I think I needed to apply a bit more gel on top.
Co-wash: Giovanni TTT
Rinse-out: Biolage Conditioning Balm

Then I styled with CK, Re:Coil, BRHG and a touch of honey, plopped for 20 minutes, air-dried and then SOTC with Innersense finishing polish.

I'm liking my hair but I'm not loving it as it's lacking volume up top. Part of that is the plopping as I got more volume last time not plopping. The rest is that I'm growing out a cut that's not looking too hot right now. I've got an appointment in a couple of weeks to get some shape cut in so until then I have to find ways to compensate. Crossing my fingers that clipping will work. My hair is not long enough to pineapple yet or I'd give that a shot.

Also, I'm not sold on the Innersense finishing polish yet and this is my first time using CK. I'll have to play with the amounts on both and see how that goes.

I'm using the same combo I did yesterday (didn't co-wash today though) and it's too early to tell, since I still have crunchy hair. But so far, so good. Nice curl formation and zero frizz.

conditioned: AOWC
leave in: KBB Hair nectar
styler: AOMM + HEBE

Result is average as well, I blame it on sleeping 10 minutes longer than usually, I had to hurry to get to work this morning. Normally I use KBB milk with AOMM, but forgot to place a new bottle in the shower after I used up the other one a few days ago.
I then didn't have enough time to diffuse, and started to mess with my hair when it wasn't fully dry. I decided to put it up in a bun once it was 90% dry. It looked okay.

i washed and conditioned with my shakii hair products.....i get it from the whole foods store.when i got out the shower,i added a lil bit more conditioner to my hair add a lil hair oil to lock in the moisture and go!!!!!!this works for me every time.
2c3ab waist length when stretched or flat ironed or wet.
I had some awesome second-day hair goin' on this morning, then I went to work and got radiator fluid in it...

This afternoon:
Natural soap bar wash
Suave Apple condition/detangle
ACV Rinse
Smooth/rake three 2-finger blobs of CJ Aloe Fix into soaking wet hair, then scrunch for curl formation
Currently plopping

Empressri suggested in the Curl Junkie threads that using the Aloe Fix gel on it's own with no other products in the hair works best to keep from getting overconditioned. Yay for experiments! I've been at my wit's end with my hair lately.

Update: Volume and soft clumpy curls that lasted all day!!! Some surface frizz after about 5 hours but it still looked good enough to wear down. Usually I have to bun my hair by this time of day to look decent.

My Day 2 was perfectly fine until I wet it....ICK couldn't stand it!! Dews are a whopping 63!

Low Pooed with EO Honey Cham/EO honey Cham Condish rinse out. No LI today I don't like how it mixes with CK and frankly it just weighs me down when dews are this high!!

CK 4 puddles
FX Fixative Gel 2 Qtrs
BRHG 1 Qtr size

Winning combo for these high dew points :thumbsup:

Glycerin-free astroglide (this stuff is awesome)
BRHG

It's pretty good, some surface frizz I'm blaming on the wishy-washy weather
So..um...I kinda fell off the CG wagon. I got sick of long curly hair about 6 months ago. I currently have a short a-line, which I flat iron, although I also wear it wavy sometimes. I still use sulfate-free poos (I'm madly in love with the Bodyshop's rainforest moisture) and silicone free conditioners.

v05 strawberry condish for rinse out, than applied it as a leave-in. some la bella gel and french braided it. My hair is off my neck and probably won't be too pretty when it dries.

John Masters Organics Citrus & Neroli Detangler as leave-in

I had smaller, tighter but nice curls all day. More frizz though than I get with KCCC, so not sure if Gel-les'c will work well in the summer for me.

Well, this morning I spritzed my hair with some water and scrunched in a little bit of gel (the one in my signature). As of right now I have my protein pack treatment (the one egg, one tbsp. mayonnaise and 2 tsp. olive oil from Live Curly Live free) in my hair still and in 20-30 minutes I will be rinsing it out using some Burt's Bees More Moisture Conditioner to detangle, then an ACV rinse. Scrunch in some gel do a plopped pineapple and an hour later go to bed.

I did my protein treatment earlier this evening than I normally do because I was sick of seeing my hair so limp.
