Hi there
i am one day 1. I feel like I overdid the curl cream was part of the LOC after my washing with conditioner and then conditioning stages.

what do you do if you have put too much product in? Just go with the flow? Or something else?
thanks!

    I usually just live with it for that day, try to eek out a second day if I can (putting it up if it looks bad), or else just wash it and start over.  Updos tend to be good for those times because it helps to have your hair a little bit dirty to keep everything in place!

    Eek - didn’t spell check sorry. I overdid the curl cream AS part of the LOC.
    and I am on (not one) day 1.
    sorry!

    I can't LOC or LCO without looking like a I spent the night in the gutter, yet I periodically try as I have moisture retention trouble.  Washing is the only thing I can ever do, unfortunately. But I do suggest trying @Guide 65;s suggestion of an updo for the day.

    Are you CG?  If not you might want to look into dry shampoos to try to prevent having to wash.

    Thanks Tinksaysboo. I think I am trying to be a CG.

    Started the other day: "washed" with conditioner. Then conditioned. The LOC. Then t-shirt around my head for 1/2 an hour or so.

    Does this qualify as a CG?

    thanks

    CG is avoiding products with silicons and sulfates.    CG approved dry shampoos are hard to come by which is why I would only recommend going that route if you aren't avoiding those types of ingredients.
