Post Hair Analysis

risosrisos Posts: 218Registered Users
After discovering my hair's true properties per the hair analysis I went and purchased new products to better suit my hair's needs. I def noticed less frizz and more moisture right under the faucet when wetting my hair and adding the conditioner post the shampoo. Previously even after wetting and conditioning my hair, even after a deep treatment there were always dry frizzy strands sticking out. Other than that my hair looks pretty much the same. I still haven't mastered the perfect style. I try the pixie curl diffusing method, and the pineapple, but these always induce major shrinkage and pouff. I do not like big hair and unfortunately it seems that no matter which products I use if my hair is second day or diffused it's huge. Therefore I keep reverting back to daily wash and gos. I do not like sopping wet hair in the cold but it seems to be the only way my hair doesn't get huge. Has anyone mastered dry non big hair? If so, how?

    Have you tried putting it in a loose braid before going to bed? You can always restyle messy spots and then tie back into the loose braid.

    Wouldn't that disrupt the curl pattern?

    No. If you braid your hair when it's wet, then the pattern will be a little looser if you do one large braid. If you put dry or damp hair into one loose braid it should maintain the existing curl pattern.
