I’m going to track my progress here my aim, having just turned cg (curly girl as in no shampoos or silicones) properly 6 days ago, is to get slightly more curly curls , not much but back to my former my curly curls that i had before -while getting rid of frizz.. which i don’t mind a huge amount, but would be nice if it did go away
I’ve done some experimenting already and find I can quite easily make my hair too oily, by applying certain products too much etc.. I might go back to catalogue those days too. Yeah I think I will later on today and edit it into this post..
Yesterdays hair was ok until the end of the day where it felt nice and soft but looked oily and was def overconditioned, esp noticeable on the temples. It felt nice though, all smooth and conditioned, but just a bit too heavy or something.
DT, CO wash:
co washed hair at night having put a DT of AOHSR on for about 30 mins prior. Co-washed it out with suave ocean breeze
What I did for stylin/leavin:
I put a bit of KCKT on the ends, not too much, then loaded up my hair with lock and twist gel (too much!) and then a pea size amount of BRHG.
It was curly, and less frizzy but was too oily and heavy.. having looked at the ingredients for the lock twist gel it is no wonder if is filled with oils for the first few ingredients and i had piled it on! oops, well good to know.
I plopped and everything but took it out before sleeping on wet/damp hair.
lesson learned= dont overload on Organic lock and twist gel, it is VERY rich, or was it the DT or the KCKT? must figure out through a scientific process of elimination lol! Sleeping on damp hair gives big loopy C curls albiet a tad on the scruffy side but kinda cool. pic is the closeup showing OC’d
But here is my hair today.
What i did:
To get rid of yesterdays OC, oily feeling/looking hair, I had to do another co-wash today, so no 2nd day hair :(
I cowashed with suave ocean breeze (this bottle is nearly finished and seemed fine at its job, though smell could be nicer, it is a protein free one) a few times making sure i got my temples where the hair is fine and where it looks oily the most.
The I attempted the super soaker again, but prob did it wrong..
tipped my head upside down and rinsed out hair in shower, it got tangled when i did this, just like last time( i hate doing this and wont do it again!) so i reached for my KCKT and got them out with a comb, most of that rinsed out prob.
Got out of shower head dripping all over.. to sink where i took handfuls of water to my head and encouraged clumping via the super soaker method. it clumped fine.. but was so wet, duh.. so added some [color=green]Curl Keeper and then some LAsports gel and then plopped. Worried that my hair was soo wet that the product was diluted. Plopped again with a new towel. then short diffuse to get rid of drips.. then let air dry.
Result- hair is ok.. curls are fine.. but there is a bunch of frizz and the plopping made my cows lick worse. At least i didnt OC or OP (over product) prob should have added gel differently or more of it since it was so wet.. forgot how she did it on that super soaker vid. [/color]
