Rockin body!

I will post a pic later, but oh my god..I have so much body/volume today and I just had to tell you all.

Last night I went to my stylist to get a protein DT, and afterwards she lightly styled me using a method I haven't.

She carefully picked my hair out, applied a leave-in condish to my hair and just the lightest dab of conditioner (I don't know which one though), twirled some sections of hair, and let me air dry.

Then I fluffed and I have the most volume and body ever..

I would normally co-wash, comb wet, apply condish again, maybe some gel, and leave it at that. I think I will have to change my regimen and follow what my stylist did, because I love the results. :love6: :thumbright: :occasion5:

    Actually I guess it feels fluffier than it looks, but I really like the results of this styling method. My hair is lighter feeling and dried faster than if I used conditioner and gel.

    OMG!!! Your hair looks Awesome!! The curls look so defined and yet touchable. Unfortunately at the length I'm at I already have a lot of volume. Perhaps when it's longer though. What do you think was the real difference - was it just the amount of product she put in, do you think?

    Hi Onyx..first off, thank you.

    I styled it today using her methods, but I really can't tell you why things turned out so well. I tried to do it like she did, just using leave in, and conditioner (a tiny amount). I also added my newly beloved LA Looks Cashmere Curls gel.

    I guess I can rotate btwn this method and using conditioner only because both work, and achieve similar results. :viking:

    Well, that's cool. They always say - less is more. Well, in my case, less is never enough, LOL, but maybe I'm doing something wrong:blackeye:;).
