Experiments with new products, and haircuts

Hi all! So I got my hair trimmed for the first time in 6 months. :o It was a curl-friendly dry cut (first one I ever had!), and although it ended up a little shorter than I wanted, it was probably good to trim off the dry ends. They used a few new products that I hadn't tried before: a bunch of Jessicurl products (HCC, [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Aloeba-Daily-Conditioner-p-104.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-aloeba-daily-conditioner]Aloeba[/buylink], Too Shea), and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Mixed-Chicks-Leave-in-Conditioner-p-279.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=mixed-chicks-leavein-conditioner]Mixed Chicks leave-in[/buylink] and another curl creme (can't remember which one) as stylers. I needed a new conditioner and styler, so I bought the [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Mixed-Chicks-Leave-in-Conditioner-p-279.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=mixed-chicks-leavein-conditioner]Mixed Chicks leave-in[/buylink] and [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Too-Shea-Extra-Moisturizing-Conditioner-p-105.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-too-shea-extra-moisturizing-conditioner]Too Shea[/buylink], as well as [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Jessicurl-Confident-Coils-Styling-Solution-p-116.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=jessicurl-confident-coils-styling-solution]CCSS[/buylink]. On a Jessicurl high, I also bought the light trial pack a few weeks later so I could try the other products.

Well. I don't know if it's the haircut, the products, my technique, or some combination of all three, but my hair has not been as wavy/curly in the last few weeks since the haircut! :( I've tried different combinations of the products (products, but each time my waves were flat and limp, even when I diffused. Today, in frustration, I went back to my old pre-haircut routine: co-washed with Suave lavender and lilac, rinsed it out completely, then srunched in [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Mixed-Chicks-Leave-in-Conditioner-p-279.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=mixed-chicks-leavein-conditioner]Mixed Chicks leave-in[/buylink], a few dabs of recoil, and a palmful of Aussie Aussome Volume extra-strength gel. Scrunched with a microfiber towel, diffused for a few minutes, and although it's not quite dry yet, I can tell it's going to be wavier than it's been in weeks! YAY!!!! :lol: Can't wait for it to grow out a little too, as it always gets curlier as it gets longer.

Guess there's something to be said for those tried-and-true products!
