PT on Unwashed Hair--Still Working Well

Been doing this for a while, and I've noticed that my hair benefits more using this method than doing a PT after shampooing. After the treatment, I rinse with cool or tepid water, and cowash or low poo. A DC is done afterward, if necessary.

I've also noticed that the definition lasts longer and my hair does not need as much of a styling product.

Have you tried the method? If so, what were your results?

Shampoo:

Cowash:HE The Sleeker The Butter

Stylers: AH Radiant Curl Enhancing Gel'ee

*experimenting and loving it!

I found that when i used to do deep treatments that it was only effective if I used a low poo prior. I generally follow the same protocol for protein treatments. However, I saw your post and it intrigued me so I am going to try it on unwashed hair (well I'm trying it right now as I'm typing). It seems counter intuitive though. Isn't this providing a barrier making it harder for our hair to get the protein it needs. I guess I'll see in 20 mins.

Just wondering did you use the PT on dry hair or do it as a spritz (with water) and condition?

I saw you use Euclence PT - is that creamy? I use Sally's Colorful so it's very watery - just wondering if I should mix it with a base conditioner.

And what type of hair do you have? don't think I saw it in your siggy.
3B curls
Medium texture
Normal elasticity
High porosity

I use the PT (actual conditioner) on dry hair. I've tried using a PT spritz as a PT treatment, but it wasn't as effective as the conditioner.

Elucence has a jelly-like consistency. It foams up on your hair, but the foam dissipates. The slip (ironic for a PT) of the Elucence Repair Treatment is wonderful. You won't need a base conditioner unless you just want to use one.

My hair type is 4a/3c, but I have found that my hair's porosity determines what products I use versus my hair type.

Thanks GreatCurls!

I am not planning on buying Eulence - just wanted to see how it compares to Colorful Neutral Filler. Colorful PT is watery so I can just spray it directly onto dry hair and see how it goes.

Think I'll try it next time I want to do a PT during a busy weekend. I agree - porosity matters more than type. Just curious because of the products in your siggy
