Another satisfied curly! I tried it yesterday:
1. Co-wash w/ suave something
2. RO w/ LVPNG (first time with this, too, so that might affect the good results)
3. CJ CCCC combed in w/ Denman knock off (first time w/ a brush since I went CG)
4. pooled cool water in my hands and lovingly puddled my hair - in the shower
5. scrunched in LASG and then Aquis towel.
6. air dried to lovely soft clumps

Like I pointed out, I tried a number of "new" things yesterday, but the combo definitely worked well. Probably THE best hair day since I've gone CG.

I think the real test is, normally I wash at night and necessarily part of my drying is done while sleeping so I don't always get the best curl formation then. I'll try it out and report back. (sorry no pics this time)

I tried this upside down in the tub, and it still doesn't seem to be my thing.

But, I do remember that anything for clump promotion seems to have negligible or negative effects on me. I just don't have clumpy type hair. My curls are thin in general, and would be stringy to some, and that's just how they form. I just need to quit trying to be all clumpy and stuff, lol. The only way I would get clumps would be to cut back to grazing-shoulder level or shorter.

Lol, I should make a "stringy curls unite" club.

It is great to see this working for so many people though!

Plus, there is a "am I the only one who doesnt want clumps" somewhere on the boards as we speak!

BTW- I posted a pic of my hair done with the Super Soaker Method. Its not the greatest hair, as I was trying a new product combo

I tried again and had much better results. I was able to wear my hair down for a change. There was some definition & less puff and frizz. I also got a little lift at the crown. Its not spectacular hair; just an improvement.

This time I used lighter products and used the Denman. Also, I dried my roots with a tee shirt before soaking the ends.

I posted pictures for the curious.

Rudee you've brought me out of lurkdom!!! I love you, love you, love you. This is the first time my husband has said my hair looks good since going CG in May!! All his other comments were on the line of where is your flat iron? Did you break it, do you need money for a new one? I also used half as much kccc as usual. I don't care if some is going down the sink if I'm using half as much. ooooh I also got second day hair which has never happened. Oh no I hope I didn't just jinx myself. I've only done the super soaker method once. I'll report tomorrow if it works again

Going back to Lurkdom

Rudee, I don't know why you can't access the album. The password should be the same. I'm new at this and can't figure out how to make corrections.

I did a semi-version of this today but in the shower...but I forgot to bring in my denman..so had to use my wider toothed comb (I hate that with a passion-being in the shower-all wet and realizing you forgot something you wanted). Anywhooooo...I do see why it's a good idea to do outside the shower because I had no idea what my part was doing. But I liked being able to re-wet/add water in the shower. So I need to figure out what's more important - my part or convenience of not splashing all around the sink.

As I noted on the Struttswife plopping thread I also did a quick plop today which I have not done in AGES!! Overall so far so good. I have diffused a bit and it's now airdrying.

This is a keeper of a routine once I figure out where I want to do it and I have all my supplies/products ready.
