💦Wash day!💦 My hair has definitely been feeling more on the over-moisturized scale lately (still struggling with the protein-moisture balance...I tried a strand test in water last night, and some parts of my hair would float while other parts sank. Maybe this unevenness explains why half of my hair is curlier than the other??), so I used a protein reconstructing treatment followed by a moisture mask in combination the @sashapurebeauty that I have been trying out.
Still trying to finish up products, so I used a Joico treatment as my protein (shampooed with the Sashapure, then applied the protein for 30 min under heat) then the Maui for an hour after. This was followed by an ACV rinse to hopefully close my cuticle.
Styling - spray leave-in, beauty balm, flax seed gel, and the Deva arc angel (I used more than usual to try and get a cast...still figuring out amounts as well!) I styled using a combo technique I got from @curlysue291 and @stephswavycurls (they are both amazing for wavy/curly hair - you should check them out if you haven't) where I clipped my roots then used a hair net to plop, then just sat under the dryer to dry (I do warm, followed by cool at the end). Last photo is after letting it all settle in for a few hours into the day. Way too tired for makeup today.
Overall: I think my hair might need more protein still...my ringlets aren't nearly as pronounced as they have been, but they look better than my last wash day. This might mean making an effort to add more protein to my daily routine. BUT I am liking the definition, shine, and crazy softness. Can't wait to see how it all holds up.
