about 1/3 silver now, and with a frizzy canopy!

Hmm...so, the new growth is a great shade, but tends to be more wavy than curly - and frizzes. I am using Deva foam with some KCCC - and I diffuse, then clip. Any suggestions for "crown treatment"?
my hair was different also at that length, not loser curls, tho. that, plus the black and white look, got me to cut my hair shorter. not a pixie, but more like a short bob. still black and white, but more manageable then.

i find that my gray/white hair loses moisture more quickly. if you read tonya's article on gray hair, it is very informative. there is one section that is totally white and i need to put more leave in in that specific area. plus i now almost always seal. if your new hair is wavy it might be telling you it needs more moisture. if our hair is dehydrated it loses curl, moisture makes the curls pop back.

i find you need to adapt to the change in your hair and when you figure it out, it's great!

rbb, how do you use your JC product as a sealant? I have to be careful about leave ins, because even though I am not sure I have LP hair, products do tend to "sit" on my hair. I have the JC Nourish and Shine spray, the Jhrimack 5 in 1 for silver hair, and Slip detangler. Do you re-apply your JC after you shampoo and condition? or after you apply products?
myrna, if you are lp it might be better for you not to use butters/oils. just rich products i think.
i use jc n&s sometimes after my leave in and sometimes only leave in and jc, or sometimes i do gel or a curl cream. if i do a curl cream i do the jcns after. so sometimes i apply it on wet hair, other times on dry hair.

and some days i don't use the jcns but when my hair dries it looks like it needs sit so i scrunch it out with jcns. there are days i don't use any depending on the dews and how much my hair seems to need it. i also very occasionally rotate and use ss emollience butter instead.

unfortunately it's like going cg again -- you need to try to guess your properties and find ingredients it likes. maybe it's worth a hair analysis with your gray/silver coming in?
