Update after a few months

After a few months of trying out various routines, I have found what is working the best.

1. Wash daily with NoPoo. I have tried multiple conditioners, cheap, expensive, Jessicurl, Devacurl, Suave, Ellucence, and not one of them works as a CoWash for me.
2. Honey Rinse as described on the Jessicurl site.
3. EMB conditioner. [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] works okay, but not quite as well.
4. Combine Giovanni Leave in with [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/AG-Recoil-p-24.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=ag-hair-cosmetics-recoil-curl-activator]Re:Coil[/buylink] and scrunch, NOT rake.
5. Angell
6. Plop
7. Air dry or bowl diffuse. It's all lovin'. ;)

One day a week I will wash with HCC and use [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] as the conditioner instead just to give myself that feeling of lather. Once a month -- the day I color -- I am using Ellucence Clarifying Shampoo.

Second dair hair requires me to get my hair almost as wet as I would washing it; so it's a big fat why bother unless I'm putting it up. I'd rather just wash it again and get the full benefit if I'm going to have 90% of the hassle.

Tried LLL Coco Light, and it made my hair stringy. Tried [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] as a leave in, and it did too.

Hope this helps some wavy/curly out there!
