Feeling a bit fed up/overwhelmed with my curly hair! Been trying to do the CG methode for about two months I’d say, and I feel like my hair was a bit better when I wasn’t doing it!
So I believe I have type 2b/c fine hair with normal/high porosity. And it’s fairly thick. Still struggling with frizz and curl definition.
So I am currently using the Tresemme Naturals conditioner as a co-wash, but if I feel I need a shampoo, (I’d say I shampoo it one in three washes) I use the Body Shop Rainforest Shine shampoo. I was also using their conditioner before the Tresemme.
As a leave in conditiner I’ve been using Naked’s Little Miracle which I put on my wet hair after I have patted it dry with a cotton t-shirt. Sometimes I’ll also use a bit of the Naked gorgeous curls curl taming creme (not sure if I need/should be using this in addition to the leave in?!) And lastly I’ve been trying the Boots Essential Styling Gel which I scrunch into my hair.
Ok, so I try to wash my hair twice a week but sometimes it falls to once a week. This could be the problem some of the time?! To refresh my hair daily I’ve been mixing the naked little miracle leave in conditioner in a spray bottle with water, spraying my hair so it’‘s all wet, and then scrunching more gel in.
I just feel like my curls could look better -less frizzy, more shiny etc, and I think my hair is a bit dry…but not sure if I’m just not used to the feeling of my curly hair having had silky straight smooth hair for YEARS!!
I think my hair looked better when I was using Lovea Bio Moroccan Argan Oil Brilliance Shine Shampoo and conditioner and a bit of Argan oil which I was given as a sample -not sure if it was 100% argan oil, but it was quite a thick oil.
I’ve also tried this Taliah Wajid Kinky, Wavy, Natural Herbal style and shine creme which I think was too heavy for my hair, and tried a second day referesher spray by Curls called quenched curls moisturiser -which was quite good as a second day referesher but I got through the bottle in about a week and a half and it cost £9! I don’t want to spend £18 a month on that alone and then have to buy other hair products on top! At the moment trying to try the high street CG products as its cheaper, but might have to move on to the emporium stuff if i can’t find anything that works.
So I’m feeling a bit despondant, wondering if i’m trying too many products in a short space of time, wondering what on earth to try next?! Also I’m going for a cut with Thomas McMillan on Thursday and I don’t think he uses CG products -should I just let him use his products on my hair and then re-start the CG regime after, or take my own CG friendly products which I don’t even think are working that well?!
Also can someone tell me the difference between a co-wash and a rinse out conditioner? Do you need to use two different types?
...sorry this is a bit of a moan! I want a curl miracle!
