    I’m loving my hair today. It’s either the Kenra conditioner or the fact that I used a TON of wetline.

    Next wash I’ll have to try aphogee with a TON of wetline and see what happens.

    Where can I buy wetline gel on the ground? I’ve been getting it from amazon, but that’s way overpriced. I’ve tried the grocery store and Rite-aid and so far no luck.

    And does anyone know the difference between the blue and the clear wetline? I have an old jar of the blue one.

    I have only ever used the clear one so I cannot speak on the difference.

    Did a wash n'go today :look: using CR Honey and EBW Hyrdation serum. I don't know how moisturizing the Honey is for my hair honestly. But this serum is the bomb!!!! It gives hold like a gel for me. I love it!

    I don’t think there is truly a difference in performance, but whenever I use the blue, I find blue gelled clumps in my hair. I prefer the clear.

    I tried Sallys and they only had the generic version. I decided not to get that. I’ll try target this weekend.

    Target had the 17oz for around $3. You can get a 33oz tub for the about same price at Walmart.

    All of that is so much better than Amazon. They sell 35oz for $17. It’s all way cheaper than KCCC, but given how much I use I want to get it for as little as possible.

    Cowashed tonight and decided to try a 'braid & go' via Ina90skindofworld on IG. Eager to see how it will turn out. My hair takes 8000 years to dry so I probably won't post results until Wednesday.

    Used kcnt and kc coiling custard. Not bad. It's a little too curly. I feel like there's a fine line between perfectly defined and jheri curl.

    I'm going into faux locs on Friday so this will be the last wng for about a month.

    My cousin is a stylist and she does my dye for me. Usually I just let her do cornrows or a roller set. Yesterday did my color anda deep conditioning. We went the beauty supply next door and I grabbed some design essentials almond avocado leave and the black caster/flax seed eco (I’m not a fan of eco but this store was lacking in selection as far as gels went). I walked my cousin through doing a wash n go and she did a great job I’m pleased with her results. Now when she does my color she can do my wash n go :toocool:

    I feel the same way about KCCC. The curls are very well defined, but they look almost greasy, at least on day one.

    It is unrealistic that I want my wash and go hair to be shiny? Even when my hair is moisturized, it looks dry.

    When it’s flat ironed it’s super shiny, I would love to have that shine when it’s curly. I tried oil sheen spray, but that didn’t really make a difference.

    I’m guessing it just doesn’t reflect light well. When I’m in dim light, my hair looks great, but in bright light it looks dull. I probably just need to get used to it.

    Besides Target and Walmart, I know it's also sold in CVS.

    I asked a Spanish person the difference w/ the varieties. She said the Spanish labels have more details. The green is aloe vera, blue is oil, and the clear is just the regular gel. It's a Mexican product, so I guess they forgot to add the details in English.

    Interesting. I have the clear version and it says it has aloe vera. It also says it has UV protection.

    They all say aloe vera w/ UV protection. I guess the green (aloe vera) has a different formulation because it definitely doesn't work the same as clear w/ all of my leave-ins.

    I haven't tried the blue one, yet.

    I have such a hard time keeping my hands out of my hair while it’s drying. I have a compulsive need to check on my curls by touching them.

    Day 2 and my hair is a little dry. I think shealoe doesn’t work so well when I apply it to really wet hair. On the weekends I let my hair air dry a bit before I apply it.

    Maybe next week I’ll t-shirt dry my hair a little before I put the shealoe on.

    I’m still wearing my hair out even though I’m not 100% happy with it.

    Results of the braid & go. Used my diy shea grease down the length of my hair and Lusti Olive Oil Gel to define the bottom half.

    Day 3. It’s starting to get frizzy (the frizz doesn’t show in the picture), but I’m wearing it to work. I think I’m over the hump of being self conscious.

    I’m going to wash it tomorrow. I’m going to try and stick to a wash every 3 days schedule. For some reason the picture doesn’t show the frizz. I probably need a flash to for it to show up. I had to pin the edges back because my face was framed with frizz when I woke up.
