routines

okay, i'm truly CGing, but as soon as i wash my hair tonight, i'll try and stick with it [i haven't been washing it since i wanted to keep it straight]. well, no matter WHAT i do, it seems to always end up a poofy, dry, frizzy mess at the end of the day. here's my routine;;

-condish in shower and detangle
-comb hair back so i have no part
-wash face
-work aussie frizz tamer + leave in conditioner
-part hair with wide tooth comb
-work herbal esscences volumizing gel in
-scrunch it
-blow dry it
-let the rest air dry

i'd like to hear your routines and look for improvments in my own. thanks!

politics is like me and my buddy going hippo hunting. we shoot a hippo and it falls on us. now, instead of using our joint effort of pushing the hippo off of us, we arue for 5 1/2 years on who's idea it was in the first place to go hippo hunting.

    I'm not really CG...I tried it and it didn't work for me....but I still only shampoo about once every three days or so.

    -wet in shower, (use baby shampoo on the roots only every three days), smooth conditioner on canopy, underneath, and on ends
    -comb hair with fingers (or a comb if it's really tangled)
    -leave ALL the conditioner in my hair
    -scrunch a lot of the water out with towel
    -apply light layers of gel to the canopy and underside of my hair, scrunch more gel on the ends
    -scrunch more with towel (not with fingers; it causes frizz)
    -let air dry (or diffuse if I'm going somewhere where I can't have wet hair soon

    I typically use any random V05 conditioner and LA looks blue gel, but my products change a lot...my hair adapts to almost anything...oh, and if I decide to change things up and use mousse instead, I use the Tresemme Curl mousse...it's the only one that has enough hold for me.
