So I was browsing instagram, and came across one of my favorite pics since being on the enjoying my coils wagon. It was the day I styled with my KCCC (kinky curly curling custard) on damp (about 70% dry) hair instead of soaking wet hair as commonly prescribed. So I decided to revisit this. I learned some new things about my hair which I will share below. So I did this yesterday and let my hair fully dry overnight. I feel like I do every wash a little different. This is also because I want to finish some old products. So for this wash: I applied warm conditioner with baking soda and then carefully and slowly finger detangled which took me about 35 minutes. For one half of my hair I used the last of my eden body works coconut cowash and for the second half I used tresemme naturals aloe and avocado (trying to use up too, because i bought lots of tresemme naturals radiant volume). After my detangling, i got in the shower rinsed off, then applied KCKT (kinky curly knot today) undiluted in 4 sections and then sat under the steamer for 20 mins.
After that I waited for the hair to get 70% dry and then began applying the KCCC gel. Been incorporating oil (formerly grape seed but just bought argan) into my regimen but for some reason I skipped the oil today.
Hair after gel. Not dry:
Dry hair results:
-my hair dried faster and I love it
-I feel I had more shine/sheen not sure why.
– It’s amazing to me how styling on damp rather than soaking wet hair actually seems to give me less frizzy hair. I don’t know, you judge from the pics today and my pics in other posts.
-my hair has so much definition with just the leave in! So I am going to buy one of the MHM recommended water based creams for days I want to just do updos or not use gel and see how it goes. I plan on one of the camille rose products probably like the almond jai butter.
Supposed to do full MHM tomorrow including cherry lola and I am dreading it. But it’s my only chance ‘cos I work Mon through Sun next week. Wish me luck!
