Default my hair is officially a sponge.

i did a moisture retention experiment today:

I used Spiral Solutions Protein Treatment on for about 10 minutes, rinsed and put in a good amount of Spiral Solutions Deeply Decadent Conditioner for like an hour. Rinsed out and massaged well in the shower and considered this my cowash. Followed with a palmful of HEHH (literally gushing out of my hair) and did not rinse out! (keep in mind my hair is chin length... this is a LOT of conditioner.)

The only other thing I put in my hair was some HETT gel and a little re:Coil. My hair is quite literally perfect. Not greasy, or oily or frizzy or anything. Curly and splendid. To think all these years of washing conditioner down the drain????

The Results:

I leave in a lot of conditioner as well. My hair is basically a sponge, just like yours. I honestly don't think it can ever get enough moisture.

medium texture, high porosity
