So, I had a rough Sunday with my hair... Most likely, I was just projecting on to my hair all of the other generalized complaints that I have right now.... Anyway, I pulled out all the stops this morning and am happy with my hair again :D Here is what I did.

- WET IT
- sprayed on an ACV and water concoction
- rinsed
- poured some liquid coffee over my hair

- air dried

Anyone else have any "big guns" that you pull out and use to get your hair "back on track"? I pretty much knew that these things would make my hair look my best and they did.

    I love the subject line. Yes! I have big guns that I use after I've tried experimenting with so many products that my hair is angry. They are:

    ACV rinse (to get definition back)
    Jessicurl's Too Shea (to add moisture)
    Pure olive oil slathered in wet hair and then tied in a bun for 24 hours. (to soften and smooth)
    Biolage Gelee (to look good)

    These are the four things that I've run back to over and over.

    Yes...
    Washing with avalon organics shampoo,
    Condition and,
    Applying coconut oil or shea with aloe on wet hair with flax seed gel.
    Two days ago I used some aloe vera gel and it worked as well.

    I want to try both of your "BG routines" - they sound excellent :D

    Anyone else?
