So 2's what did you do to your hair today?

Like Tree296Likes

I love this thread on the 4A forum and on LHCF. So I thought we should do it too!

Basically it's the place for you to indicate what you did to your hair that day--products, successes, failures, etc.

Post away!

Done experimenting! Loving Spiral Solutions products!

Weeeelll, the waves have been looking a little blah since the cooler weather arrived. It always takes me a while to find my fall/winter routine since the previous year's never works (or maybe I just can't remember it, lol). So, since changing up the products hasn't been doing wonders, I decided to arrange it a little differently when I was using my Denman. I usually brush it back and away from my face, but today I brushed it sort of down and across my forehead a bit. Jury is still out since it isn't completely dry yet, but so far I'm liking's kind of like having bangs without really having to have them. Just a softer look. How about you?
Nothing yet.

I am going to use my AOMM and layer over it Goddess Glaze!

And it is a success!! Yay for Goddess Glaze!!

I'll play!

I'm recovering from a protein disaster, so today I focused on moisture. Just did my normal wet scalp scrub, then a good dose of GFTN rinse-out. I just got a protein-free condish for leave-in (Suave Aloe & Waterlily), so I scrunched in a good handful of that, then a bit of gel (currently using a GF one, can't remember the name). It's air drying now, and hopefully it will have more life and shine and health back once it's dry!
CG since Jan 2008!

Co-Wash: Suave Natural Coconut
Rinse-out: SN Coconut or GFTN
Leave-in: SN Coconut
Styling: BRHG, Set It Free, HETT
Dislikes: glycerin, mineral oil
Loves: Protein!

Current Products in Trial: Renpure Organics condish (red), LAL Sports Gel, LOOB
Just a co-wash with Tea Tree Triple Treat, rinse out with GFTN (and a pea sized leave-in of GFTN), and some HESMU mousse. I tried the Pixie diffusing method, and it looks better than it has in a while. I think I need more hold than the mousse alone, so I'll probably add some gel tomorrow.

I can't wait for my hair to adjust to CG. I've only been doing it for a few days, so my hair is still being kind of stubborn, and I'm still figuring out what products it likes.
I am going to un-pineapple and use a refresher to hopefully get 2nd day hair. I *was* thinking about trying a protein DT but I think I'm too lazy today.

Hair bio:

I used my extra virgin coconut oil and mixed it with a little argan oil (for giggles) as a pre-poo. Left it on for 30 some odd mins and then CJ loo-poo'd it out. I think I'm really starting to dig the CJ loo-poo. Anyway, went back to the mastey since I haven't used it in-for-evah (and I know how my hair reacts with it), and then used CJ CA LI. Pulled the old jessicurl samples back out and..... its a bust. The of my hair back is nearly flat. Why is something that is marketed as a curl enhancer not enhancing on me?? I mean, LOOC is more curl enhancing when used alone under gel! lol.

Anyway, I'm gonna go with the fact that Jessicurl is loaded with oils, and I should just stay away from them in anything but my pre-poo's.

Nothing. I woke up and it looked fine. And I didn't even wash it or wet it last night. Went to bed with it dry. Woke up and it still looked fine.

I used conditioner only last night. I cowashed and used rinse-out conditioner. Then, I did a modified version of super-soaker. I raked in a ton of leave-in. I brushed with a denman brush. Scrunched in some water, and scrunched in more leave in. I slept with a really wet pineapple. I love how soft it is. It's not as curly as usual, but I think it's worth it because I like having no crunch.

What a strange day for this thread. Did a PT, blew it strait for the first time in months and cut it myself. Hope it don't have triangle head when I wash it and fix curly again. (a blog to help new wavies, go to the how do I get started page)

For the second day in a row, I added Artec Textureline Gel (after my usual JCRR & JCCC) to soaking wet hair, plopped, and diffused. Turned out well, but I still don't like this haircut.
I pampered my waves today. Washed with Aveda black malva shampoo (on scalp only), used Hi-pro pac protein treatment in my hair for a few minutes, rinsed that out, and then conditioned with Aura cherry almond bark.

Dew points are high here today, so I chose Eco Styler gel to combat poofiness/frizz. I combed this through soaking wet hair, scrunched with a microfiber towel, and let it air dry.
Type 2b. Wash: WEN pomegranate or fig. Leave-in conditioner: Alaffia beautiful curls for wavy hair, Spiral Solutions Protein spray. Style: Curls In A Bottle, Ecostyler, or KCCC.
I low pooed with Abba Aloe Vera and Watercress, rinsed with Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut. Then I put in GVP Conditioning Balm, put in Proclaim Curl Activator Gel, and Salon Care Aloe Vera Gel. Blow dried upside down, and it woooorked!

Current routine:

low poo: GTTTT
rinse out: Suave Naturals Aloe and Waterlily
leave-in: GVP Conditioning Balm or Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition
stylers: Proclaim Curl Activator Gel, Proclaim Crystal Ice Protein Gel or Ecostyler Krystal Gel
I misted with water to reactivate the Dep texture sport Gel already in it from yesterday..Smoothed in a pea size of LOOC, Finger styled, scrunched as needed, clipped the top and sat under the dryer 10 minutes. Not super curly or clumpy, but perfectly presentable.
I was excited today because I bought a new shampoo and conditioner--excited to see how my hair turns out! I washed it and am currently plopping it right now and plan on keeping it plopped until morning!
Nothing yet.

I am going to use my AOMM and layer over it Goddess Glaze!

And it is a success!! Yay for Goddess Glaze!!

Today was a low-poo day. So I low-poo'd and CO'd with Giovanni 50/50. Put in some GVP CB and left it on for the rest of my shower and rinsed with cold water (which sucks in the fall/winter BTW...). Then I raked in AOMM and scrunched in HETT. It was an "eh" hair day. Very shiny and soft, but my hair can dry in weird patterns if the scrunching isn't perfect.

I low poo'd and conditioned with GF nutri-repair (the same as tripple something for US curlies??) I gave it a quick blow dry as I was catching a lift with my brother and it was raining outside, to cold for airdrying. Hair is soft but feels a little dry in spots. I'm over due for a protein treatment but it's at my uni house
