Ok so the ever elusive 2nd day hair...:director:I got it!

after doing some research and the pj in me wanting to get my hands on some honey to put in my styling products :|..... I read all about honey giving other curlies definition, some hold and other good things, so i decided to give it a go in my styling products. I keep stressing that out because I HAVE used honey as a DT... I usually mix same parts conditioner and raw honey, with some oov.....heavenly hair. Its also supposed to lighten my hair in the long run, but i've only done it about 3 times so idk about that :P

The Experiment:
made my own spritz and leave in :P:

Spritz:
In a spray bottle, i added some Giovanni tea tree condish, some honey (about two-three tablespoons), a bit of sweet almond oil, and water (more than all these ingredients) shook it all up real good, and voila! a refresher, redefiner, or even leave in....

Leave in:
Not much as my OWN leave in, just took the rest of my karen's body beautiful leave in and added some honey, sweet almond oil in and shook it good, and voila....

Gel:
I added some Honey to my BHRG...

The Results:
after my usual Honey DT, on tuesday night, I added some of my honey boosted leave in, and topped it off with my honey boosted BHRG... and went to sleep, without putting it up, or protecting it at all...in the morning: BEAUTIFUL CURLS. Just to let you know, I AM NOT A PERFECTIONIST when it comes to my hair...I'm happy if i get well defined BIG hair... not too much frizz but i don't freak out when i get some....the only thing i had to touch up was the lower part of my hair, my ends, because i guess i slept on them. but on that wed morning, and the whole day, i rocked my curls... they looked hydrated and silky...just beautiful i couldn't believe it!

so today thursday: i sprayed some of my own spritz, and i still have good hair! FIRST TIME EVER

so, thats what 3rd day hair? I'm saying 2nd day cuz i only spent two days with it....so lets see if i can stretch it out for tomorrow...and if i'll be able to repeat this miracle!

    How much conditioner did you use in the spritz?

    I usually make my own spritz with conditioner and water. I may try this with the honey added xx
