Help! I'm new

MsSauciMsSauci Posts: 8Registered Users
I hate to be the newbie, I feel that when I try something it works, then I read on and find that maybe it was all in my head. I spend tons of time researching and feel like I'm trying to decipher a foreign code!

I am now using a co-wash *found it at Sallys but fit the long list of what to have and not to have* with DevaCurl OneCondition, then add in the DevaCurl gel with smoothing cream and then plop my hair. Sometimes it's nice, other it is frizzy.

I have no idea if I am even using the co-wash correctly if I use it with the one condition. I am almost ready to give up, but really want to FINALLY get along with my hair. I did try to figure out my hair type, and maybe I got that right, but I still feel so lost!!!

    Welcome ! :) Your products are good ! .
    Thats the way to co-wash :

    1.Pick up a water-soluble products. Read the product labels here. Look for conditioners and stylers that do not contain silicones — or catch up on which silicones are water-soluble and which aren’t. If you aren’t planning to shampoo, you’ll need to use products that can be washed out easily with just water.

    2.In the shower, wet hair throughly and apply a large portion of conditioner to your hair. Your hair needs to be covered and saturated from roots to ends.

    3.Noodle your hair. This is just fancy term for finger combing and detangling. Grab sections of your hair and finger comb tangles out, running your hands through the section in a quick fashion, multiple times. This will rub the conditioner into the hair shaft, basically “washing” it the way that a shampoo would.

    4.For your scalp, use the conditioner like you would a shampoo. If you are still rubbing and tousling your scalp in the shower — like they do in the Herbal Essences commercials — stop right now! All that rubbing is bad news for your curls, and only causes more tangles and destroys the curl pattern. Instead, use the same “noodle” method on your scalp, rubbing your hands through the hair to detangle, and then gently massage the conditioner into the scalp. This will cleanse it.
