    FYI: The Doux is 20% off at target. Ulta has a 20% off prestige coupon out.

    I used a leave in and just the doux prior to my last hair appointment. I was kind of surprised of how mostly defined my hair was considering I only used a leave in and mousse.

    I think I’ll give the doux a try. I’ll do my trial on a weekend so if it fails it doesn’t really matter.

    Okay great! I'm actually more worried because it's my hair that can be too thick to work through, but if I try small enough sections....

    This morning I used my Felicia leatherwood brush again after I applied my KCKT, but this time I brushed in smaller sections and my hair doesn’t seem to be poufing, and it has tons of movement.
    I really like how my hair turned out, except for the wet look of the custard. But tomorrow after the gel cast breaks it should be really good.

    @GettingKinky

    When you do squish to condish, are you doing the bowl method?

    I’m thinking of giving the bowl method a try...

    I washed with TMC Ancient Egyptian Shampoo, followed by TMC Green Tea & Carrot Mask. Sectioned into 6s.

    I smoothed on Nature's Little Secret Banana Leave-In, & Nature's Little Secret Irish Moss onto each section.
    I'm currently air-drying my hair.

    I wanted to see if the Banana Leave-In will make a difference in application and hold of the Irish Moss.

    I haven’t tried the bowl method. I just cup some water in my hands and add that to my hair. It’s not very much water. Just enough to get that squishing sound.

    I need a haircut. But every time I look at pictures all the styles I like are of women with looser curls than mine.

    I'm experimenting with a conditioner majority wash n go.

    I vaguely remember doing something like this last year, but I forgot why I stopped..?

    I co-washed/detangled with Aussie Smooth Conditioner, sectioned into 6s. Then rinsed the majority out. I smoothed on some more of the Aussie Smooth. Then I put my hair up with a clip.

    After it was mostly damp, I took out the clip, and used Safflower Oil as a sealant.
    I added more of the Aussie Smooth as a styler.
    I'm currently air-drying for a wash n go.

    I think the key component was using a plastic cap at night to keep in the moisture.
    I'm only doing this now because the air is dry today. If this method works I may revisit.

    It's funny that you say this, because I posted about my denman results and success in August, and never looked back. The best part of my technique now includes Kccc first, to moisten and loosen up my hair, and then I use the denman, and smooth on wetline extreme gel.

    I decided after this wash n go, that I have both my favorite product and technique down pat, and I'm going to stick with this style of wash n go for a while (until it stops working for me)

    Same. I’ve been toying with the idea of another haircut but I don’t see any styles I like... or cuts with tighter curls, for that matter.
    I want to see nice, short/med length, type 4wng haircuts but those pictures don’t really seem to exist

    Ok so any longer than 2 days would equal scalp irritation.

    But on the + side I was able to just water rinse, detangle & section (into 6s) with ease.

    I smoothed on The Doux Mousse Def onto each section, I pinned it up with a clip until damp-dry.
    Then I removed the clip.

    I'm currently air-drying my hair.

    I used my Felicia leatherwood brush on one small section of my crown after I applied KCKT and KCCC. It was easy to brush and that section looks really smooth - and usually that part is pretty frizzy. Next wash I’m going to do that all over my head.

    Have any of you tried Deva curl supercream? What do you think of it?

    I have a sample of the SuperCream, but I have yet to try it. I'm wary of my skin's reaction to the Coconut Oil.

    I may try it after my next wash/co-wash. It's been ridiculously hot for late October.

    So for late this morning/early afternoon...

    I co-washed/detangled with VO5 Kiwi Lime Conditioner. Sectioned into 6s.

    On soaking wet hair, I smoothed on Eco Style Gold onto each section.
    I'm currently air-drying my hair.

    I tried Taliah Waajid's Green apple and aloe Hold Me Down Gelle on my last wash and go and I really like it. Smooth application, great definition, strong hold, and no flakes. I might actually like it better then my Wetline, but it costs almost 4x as much and I can't get it locally. It also comes in a 12oz container, while Wetline is 35oz.

    I think I will still buy it but I won't use it for every wash.

    I wore my hair in braids for almost 2 months and now my hair is very dry. I haven't had any issues with moisture in 2 or 3 years so I'm kind of bummed about that. Back to weekly DCs until my hair starts to feel better.

    I got a denman brush today. I can’t wait to try it out next time I wash.

    I’ve used it in the past but was not impressed. It provided a much softer hold than I like because a soft hold equals frizz for my wash and go. To be fair, I’m a huge fan of the old formula WetLine, never had moisture issues with it & don’t mind the crunch. My hair/scalp/skin also don’t like coconut oil very much so I had to work had to get complete application with minimal scalp touching & wore my hair off my forehead/neck. If I had to use it again, I’d try the super cream for a twist out updo.

    The shape of my hair is getting too round for my liking. I want to get a more blunt/angled cut, but I hate to lose that much hair. Decisions, decisions.

    The denman didn’t really do anything for me. Maybe I need more practice.

    Ok, so this heat wave isn't letting up for us over here!

    I co-washed with VO5 Kiwi Lime (on left side) + Strawberries & Cream (on right side) Conditioners, detangled and sectioned into 6s.

    I smoothed As I Am GroYogurt onto each soaking wet section. Once my hair was somewhat damp, I smoothed on Carol's Daughter's Coco Creme Coil Enhancing Moisture Butter onto each section. I'm currently air-drying my hair.

    Another reason: I chose the Coco Creme, is to see how much coconut oil (blended into the ingredient list) I can handle without skin irritation. I still haven't narrowed down when it started... My skin was ok with coconut oil as long as it was in a product, not stand alone.

    How did you use the denman brush?

    Starting at the ends? Mid-shaft? The roots?

    Did you rotate the denman in the direction you want your hair to curl? (I got that tip, from youtubers)


    I'm asking because I'm curious about the denman as well.

    I started as high up as I could get it. I tried to rotate the brush because I wanted the orange part of the brush to smooth my hair, but my hair doesn’t look any smoother than normal.

    I’m getting a haircut/trim next week. Maybe I’ll try again then and see it it’s easier when my hair is less tangly.

    My day 2 hair was a disaster after using the denman. I pineapple’d as usual and this morning my hair was all stretched out and wouldn’t spring back into place. I had to wear a pony/puff. I’m not sure what I did wrong.
