I got complimented on my waves for the first time since starting curly girl! Maybe they were just being nice, because I look a little frizzy. But anyway, all I did after my water-wash was scrunch dry with a microfiber towel and diffuse a little bit. The waves have held and are soft. One side of my head waves differently than the other, but I'm trying not to let it bother me. I recently saw a picture of myself at 2 yrs. old, and even then one side of my head had totally different curls than the other.
Have any other of you wavies tried going productless?

    That is great about the compliment! I went sans products on Saturday and I really liked the look (other then the extra oil I had from my oil treatment) ;) I'm trying out a new shampoo (organic) and I'm hoping that I will be able to cut back on the products all together. I'm not a girly girl. Even using Gel hurts my pride - LOL! I got my first compliment today too dispite SERIOUS rain frizz. Horray for CG!!

    I'm a wavy and for the last few days, I've been using Biosilk Smoothing Balm as a leave-in and nothing else but maybe a little GF Soft Curl Cream after it's all dry to give it some oomph.

    My left side is a little looser than my right and when I use gel to get it a little curlier, it curls looser than the right. The nature of wavy/curly hair :wink: .

    I agree, yeah for Curly Girl! My hair is getting better and better, and I'm saving so much money on shampoo. I used to use tons of shampoo, lathering twice each time every other day, now I lather once, only once a week.
    Its good to know that the lopsidedness is fairly common too. When I used to blow my hair straight, it would still have a flip up on oneside, and under on the other, so this wavy lopsidedness doesn't look any sillier than that IMO.
    Have any of you wavies had luck with a satin pillowcase? I always have to comb my hair on the second day, but I wondered if I would have less messiness with the sating pillowcase.

    I use a high count thread (300) and don't have alot of trouble. I do get some frizzies overnight, but I just spray with water in a spray bottle and smooth it out a bit. My biggest frizz factor is now my kids! They love to touch my hair and when it's wet that spells disaster!

    My hair is past lopsided, at times, it's almost as if one side is wavy and one side is straight. For times of desperation when I had long hair, I kept a set of steam curlers so that I could curl the straight side. It was part of the reason I cut all my hair off - the sides just didn't match! Of course, now I realize that it's the nature of the beast (so to speak) and a little product and scrunching might even things out once my hair get a bit longer.
    Or, failing that, I've now developed a huge collection of barrettes.
    Not curly, but wavy. Learning to love it.

    I went productless yesterday! Had great spiral curls! My hair tends to be more curly on the right side and more wavy on the left side. I love it. :P
