    To get consistent results, I have to...pray to the hair gods and goddesses. That said, diffusing does help me get more consistent results than when I don't diffuse, but I don't always get consistent results even when I diffuse. Hoping maybe the smasters technique will help.

    To get consistent results, I have to wet my hair every day (no 2nd day hair here), never run out of LA Looks Sport Gel (if they ever discontinue this I will die), and never go anywhere with soft water (my hair hates it).
    --I'm located in Western PA.   --I found NC in late 2004, CG since February 2005, joined the forums in May 2005, started going grey in late 2005.   --My hair is 3B with some 3A, currently at mid back length when dry,  texture-medium/fine, porosity-top is low, middle is medium, ends are porous, elasticity-normal.   --My long time favorite products are Suave & VO5 conditioners, LA Looks Sport Gel, coconut oil, honey, vinegar.

    haha so true! It also helps when it's not so stinkin' hot outside either.

    I can't brush before putting in stylers because my wave pattern is too weak. I can comb before rinsing out my conditioner though. I also have to scrunch and not rake in my stylers and then plop. I tried not plopping and my hair wasn't very wavy!

    - use the Icequeen method
    - scrunch in a lot of Ecostyler Krystal upside down
    - scrunch in a little bit of BHRG over that
    - plop for a while, ideally 20 minutes or so
    - do a protein treatment and an ACV rinse once a week

    (1) Icequeen
    (2) Scrunch Ecostyler both upside down and right-side up
    (3) Diffuse (pixiecurl) to about 80 - 90% dry, then air dry

    Cleansing and conditioners change with the seasons, but I always Icequeen and I ALWAYS use Ecostyler and I always diffuse.
