Medium texture, normal porosity and elasticity...let's share!

Like Tree22Likes

Hey everyone! I wanted to update what I've been using, because I've actually fallen into a routine of consistently good looking hair. Big thanks to Curlsnswirls for the suggestion about lots of moisture in conjunction with glycerin, because that TOTALLY helped me.

The only thing I'm still "playing" with is cleansing. I switch between co-washing with VO5, using AIA's Coconut Cowash, or SheaMoisture's Moisture Retention shampoo. It depends on how gross my head feels.

I still use GVPCB as my RO--I love this stuff. If they ever get rid of it, I will be the saddest panda in history.

After my RO, I put in a little bit of Yes To Carrots Pampering Conditioner, concentrating on my ends, and then gently comb it through with a Denman brush.

Then I supersoak, and apply FSG (which is plain save for 1/2 a tsp of coconut oil) to my soaking wet hair, get out of the shower and plop immediately, but only long enough to get dressed.

After I take out the plop, I've been scrunching in a bunch of LALSG. I like it to get nice and crunchy. When its dry, I SOTC (though it often gets un-crunchy on its own), and I have been a happy camper.

I even get decent 2nd day hair, by just scrunching in water and a little more gel (and sometimes the Organix curl cream, if I'm bored).

The product junkie in me still wants to play with other stuff, but its nice to have a default routine that works!

Ok, I'll jump in here! I am new to CG and this site but wow have they helped me alot.

I am medium/fine texture , medium porosity, medium elasticity.

I still haven't figured out how to do a signature though....

I have been having great results with the following:
Cleanse: SM Coconut and Hibiscus (clarify every 10 days or so)
RO: Aussie moist, Deva OneC, SM Curling milk
LI: SM Restorative (just a tiny bit to bottom third of hair)
Supersoak at this point
Styler: Re:coil or CK or SM Souffle & then LALSG over(HG)
Scrunch out water with old Tshirt
Pixie diffuse

I can't get over how much I love LALSG!!!!! Never cared for a gel before and I have tried MANY!!!

Also, the supersoak, Tshirt scrunch, pixie diffuse has made all the difference in the world for frizz control, curl definition and hold.

So happy I found this site, thanks everyone!!!!
This thread has been dead for a while, but I was hoping others with similar properties might be interested in reviving it? I'm especially curious about your hair's preferences as far as the moisture protein balance is concerned.

my hair seems happy as far as moisture/protein balance goes since i've been using cj deep fix most days -- just enough protein for my hair.
when i was using cj curl rehab and ss deeply decadent, i'd use repair me maybe once a month, less often in winter,and that kept my hair happy.
