Thank you so much Rainboe. This site is a bit overwhelming for newbies. I looked through some before/after pics and was blown away with the transformations. Patience is a challenge for me so I guess I wanted to see soft lucious curly hair right away... Ha ha ha

I don't have a leave in conditioner, but will try keeping TRESemme in bottom half of hair and leave root line clear. I've seen LA Looks sport gel mentioned frequently so I'll def. give it a whirl. As for diffusing, I just looked at the pixie method and it looks interesting. I don't mind leaving most wet to air dry, I just worry my roots will be flat stuck to head. I must find those alligator clips!

Thanks again for all the tips and advice :-)
