Default Medium Texture, High Porosity

Just wondering what works for other medium textured, high porosity curlies...products, combinations, techniques, anything else you want to share.

I currently co-wash with VO5 Strawberries & Cream or low poo with Giovanni Triple Treat Tea Tree every 3-5 days. I use Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose as a rinse out conditioner every day (although I'm looking for something a little less rich to rotate).

To style I gently squeeze the water out of my hair and then use 4 quarter-size puddles of Biotera gel (underneath back, left side, right side and rightside-up back). I let it air dry which usually takes about 2-3 hours and then I SOTC with my hands.

I do this every day as I have yet to get 2nd day hair.

So what are you doing? Curious minds want to know.

This may be me...I used to think I was fine, but I don't think I am. And right now, I'd have to say I am highly porous. What I do is in my signature, but you can always PM me with questions.

I do leave-in (most days), curl creme, then gel.

Thanks for responding. I don't really have any questions...just curious about others' hair routines and products. Maybe I'll be able to pick up a tip or two .
