My hair didn't feel good. Limp scalp looks gross. I used about tsp of vo5 moisture milk with a handful of tress naturals. I coated my ends before I used shampoo. Used my lalooks plopped for 20 min (I don't really see chg when I do that tho) once dry it was very very crunchy so I scorched it out with coconut oil. Its no where , where I want it to be but it looked better. I was losing my little banana curls underneath and now they are back.
This is so more stressful than I ever thought it would be.
Curl Pattern- 2a/2b few 2c underneath I think
Porosity-after 4 min floated- low porosity (
colored treated hair-damage from color and heat products
Haven't colored since Nov 2017

    I had to use my V05 shampoo last week. My curls were dull and actually trying to go straight. I didn't lose moisture and my curls returned. I may have to do this once or twice a month. Been CG just over a month now. :-)
