Dew point wash day: 65, 50% chance rain
Dew point next day:
Interesting weather?:

Cowash/Lowpoo: scalp itchy from previous wash, rewashed at 11am. Burt's Bees volumizing condish; good slip and thin enough to spread easily, smells kind of candy-sweet but not obnoxious, rinsed out fairly easily, left hair light and a little less slippy then the VO5 yest.
Leave-in: SS PT about nickel dollop
Styler(s): SS CEJ quarter-size, MGSG 4-5 pumps

Styling Technique: scrunched SS CEJ into length only, one pump MGSG over top and fingercombed through, made part and added water using mod supersoak, scrunched in one oump MGSG per side & one add'l pump to length. plopped about 45 mins with one blast of heat, pixie diffused upside down and side to side until maybe 50% dry, did extra upside down to encourage volume, is pretty crunchy, let air dry since its still midday.

First Impressions: held up well thru to bedtime, still crunchy in spots, right front is getting straight at bottom as usual.

Next day results: held up fairly well overnight, definitely pleased. I was gonna take a morning after pic haha but we had a SNAFU at work and I had to go in early, ended up staying late too barely thought about my hair, had gone pretty limp by the time I got home but I'm definitely trying this again. Oh, and no more itchy scalp.

New things to try: would like to try condish only (leave-in), I like the way my hair looks but I miss being able to run my fingers through it. Will probably go productless next time. Need to try the vo5 and protein spray again but separately so I can tell which caused the itch.
