Post pics of you best day 3 or later hair!

Hey guys, I just joined today after lurking here for a few months. I thought it would be nice to see how everyone's hair looks a few days post wash. Here's my current day 3 hair.

(both sides & the back are shaved because I can only handle so much hair)

I thought I was following the Curly Girl method since June, but recently realized a good chunk of the products I'd been using contained tons of cones, drying alcohols & sulfates (they were gifted to me by my mom, so I didn't look at them too closely/felt obligated to use them). So really I've only been CG for a few weeks now. My current method involves using a clarifying shampoo once every two weeks and co washing with Suave Naturals Coconut Conditioner once a week in between. Afterwards, I use Giovanni' Weightless Leave-In, followed by Shea Moisture's Curl Smoothie. After that I use Jessicurl's Oil Blend, and follow that up with Eco styler argan oil gel. I finish up with lots of prays to the hair gods that all my bleaching and dying doesn't lead to any breakage/knots. On the days after cleansing, I refresh my curls with a home-brewed mixture of Suave Naturals Coconut, Proclaim Natural 7 Olive Oil, and water shook up in a spray bottle.

    This is another thread who knows when I can participate. The only styler from my staple that gives me 3-days hair is only the okra jelly and it's been a hit or miss with the latest concotion. But even then, I'm stretching it and itching to wash my scalp.....
