What did you do to your hair today?

After 2 days of dry fluff and go's, I rubbed Afro Detangler lotion into my dry hair, detangled and re-curled.

    This morning, yet again, I tried unsuccessfully to acheive 2nd day hair with a spray of co and water. And yet again it didn't work. I had to waterwash when I got to work and plop with Biotera glaze. I've pretty much decided that I must cowash or at least water wash every day for good hair.

    This morning I was really lucky! I did nothing at all. Fortunately, I got second day hair, so I just clipped the top back (I do that all the time because I hate it when the hair hangs in my face) and I was done. I didn't even spray my hair with anything, that gives me even more frizz.

    Washed with No Poo, conditioned with One Condition, left most of it in. Am currently plopping in a tee-shirt, and will diffuse for about 10 minutes in a little while. That won't get me all the way dry, but enough that it looks mostly dry, presentable to leave the house.

    I'm into a very natural look lately, so that means almost no product, and nothing that enhances it to curl.

    I conditioned w/ B2B Coconut Mango, then let airdry about 1/2, raked a small amount of Easy Straight Flat Iron Finish, and let it dry the rest of the way. Then I brushed it out, and tied it back for a minute to calm down the poofies.

    I'm amazed at how much faster my hair dries w/o product in it, so I've gotten away from putting product into very wet hair.

    After meditating this morning my scalp started to itch. So even though hair looked okay after that Afro Detangler from last night, I washed with Robert Craig conditioner, with [buylink=]Knot Today[/buylink] left in and plopped. Gelled with John Masters mixed with Jane Carter [buylink=]Condition & Sculpt[/buylink]; scrunched a film of castor oil/Set it Free on ends. Air drying (takes forever).

    CWC'd w/ Vo5 Vanilla Mint, Elucence Clarifying Poo and Moisture Balancing Co.

    Added my product: GF C&S Leave In and LA Looks Durahold gel. Today I tried out my Alagio Curl Balm sample, just used a small amount between the leave in and conditioner. Plopped for about 20 minutes. Left it loose. It looks pretty curly today...haven't taken a look at my hair yet now that it is dry.

    Today I cleansed and conditioned with a combination of WEN lavender and fig, used a little bit of the lavender and a few drops of jojoba oil as a leave-in, plopped for about 15 minutes, scrunched in Angell gel and then diffused until about 75% dry. Pretty good hair day...a little frizz, but I can never totally eliminate it anyway.

    Bathtub isn't draining- somehow I think my two-year old has something to do w/it....

    So second day hair for me: wet the crown a little and pull back w/a bungee band, mix a small drop of HE BE gel w/a few spritzes of Deva SIF and scrunch into ponytail. It looks presentable.

    -took out my puffs (one in the front and one in the back)
    -fluffed out my hair without disrupting the curls too much
    -wet my hands and rubbed in some ORS Lock and Twist gel and scrunched it on my ends
    -Got in the shower, and once I came hair had nice volume
    -Pinned back the front

    -And that's it; I have pretty nice 2nd day hair, which I haven't had for a while now. :)

    Got it wet, combed and put it up.

    I was supposed to run to the store last night because I was out of conditioner, and I lost track of time and forgot, so I had nothing in the house to fix my hair with. And my hair was a rats nest waking up and I sure as h*ll wasn't going out like that.

    The same thing I've been doing for the last week or so....I co-washed with Wen Cleansing Conditioner, rinsed it all out, added a dab of [buylink=]Re:Coil[/buylink], scrunched it in, plopped for 10 or 15 minutes, added a dab of Aubrey Mandarin Magic Gel, clipped the front, diffused for a couple of minutes and let if finish air drying.

    I've been doing this everyday but switching off gels and I've been having pretty good hair days....of course, it could be the cooler weather!

    I tried the Wen on a whim as I didn't think it would be anything special but I'm liking it. I'm planning on shampooing once a week though as they do contain a version of amodimethicone. I tried using it as a leave in but that seemed a bit much right now...maybe in the winter.

    Take care,

    3A, fine but thick, low porosity, low to medium resilience, protein sensitive but not to silk

    Favorites: Anything from Curly Kinks...their system is my new holy grail. Still liking Juice Organics Orange and TJ Refresh Conditioners as all purpose co-wash and rinse outs.

    Loved my hair today! I detangled and put it in two buns saturday, with jojoba oil, [buylink=]elucence MBC[/buylink],avocado butter and Giovanni 50/50 as a leave in . Just took out the buns today(still damp after 5 days!?) got in the shower to add some volume, and thats it! My curls are soft, and hang all the way past my shoulders because the buns stretched out the curls a little bit, so it was nice to change up my look a little bit. So low maintence and easy!
    Super Thick corkscrews and waves. LOVE Elucence MBC, Giovanni 50/50 condish, Qhemet Products, V05 Calming Chamomile Tea Therapy condish, Jessicurl WDT. These are my official HG's that I love oh so much

    I saw that product package yesterday at the store and was tempted to get just the finish creme mentioned -I thought it may help with da frizz but alas I opted not to get it; have to see the Hair Doc in the morning so I shouldnt be experimenting quite yet.

    Hmm today was just about the same for me since I am detoxing:
    Wet hair (in shower) spray detangler (J&J No Tears), comb through, give light rinse and pulled back in a loose band - Doc orders.

    I may tyr the KYJ thingy :clown:

  • MagooMagoo Posts: 2,173Registered Users
    I think I'm overconditioned so today I just water washed, detangled with my fingers every so gently since I used no condish, put in some HE SMU gel and mousse and airdried. Best hair day and ages! But we also had nice cool dry weather so that could be it.

    Today, I accidently washed my hair with shampoo. I had no intentions to do so, but since I cannot see in the shower (I'm near blind without my glasses). I grabbed the wrong bottle. Oh well. I dt'd and then conditioned again and put no products in my hair. It actually feels pretty good today, comparatively to how it has been lately. Maybe that's because I've been smearing on EVOO every night for the past few days and will continue to do so for at least another week. I'm at the point where I'll do almost anything, even if I hate the smell of olive oil.

    I shampooed with TJ Nourish poo then applied TJ Nourish condish. Rinsed then applied leave-in. After shower, I applied [buylink=]re:coil[/buylink] then Abba Weightless Gel. Partially diffused, then air dry 1 hour. Scrunched the crunch with SIF. My curls turned out great. I don't normally use the TJ products but I think I'll start.
