You know...I did that in the shower a couple of times and it worked well. Today my curls fell (and I don't want to lose any!) and I was wracking my brain trying to figure out what I had done differently. I did rewet it today but in the sink - and doing the ss method like that has never worked well. Hmm. I bet it was that...

I used to keep a journal of products when I was trying to figure out what worked/didn't work. Maybe I need to do that again now that I am concentrating more on styling products and techniques.

remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!!
My hair:
2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
My routine:
Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.
