Yesterday I made some minor adjustment in my routine. I left a little leave in in my hair - just a tad - and sprayed my hands with the SM Coconut hibiscus moisture mist, ran my hands over my hair before applying a bit more Biotera Gel than I usually use. Then the Deva foam. Yesterday it worked well. That was yesterday. Ill have to see if it works today. Isnt it aggravating that some combo will work great one day and the next, its toast?
