@Shadow_Lace Great choices :drunk:

Happy Hair Growing!
Aww, thanks!

I'm really trying to keep making conscious, yet stress-free choices regarding my hair care.

I haven't done all of this research (ingredients, weather: humidity/dew points, etc.) for nothing!

I just hope, I can keep this same energy & determination for my long-term healthier hair goals!

I really like the ingredients & products you use, too!

Initiated refreshing my wash n go with a regular spray of water.

1st: Eden Bodyworks Hibiscus Honey Hair Tonic (as my main refresher product) lightly all over.
2nd: Eden Bodyworks Almond Marshmallow Hydration Serum as a light sealant.
3rd: Dippity~Do Girls with Curls Gelee scrunched into the ends & the rest lightly smoothed over my hair.

Just to get a baseline of what I was working with...

I sprayed the EDW Hibiscus Honey Hair Tonic lightly all over again.
As an experiment, I mixed the EDW Almond Marshmallow Hydration Serum, the Dippity~Do GWC Gelee & a little trickle of water together between my hands.
I put the 1st application on the left front of my hair.
I swear a miracle occurred just at that moment!

(The usual problems with refreshing, my wash n go, is that my curl clumps become too separated.
Resulting in more frizz, significantly less definition, and more tangling on the ends.)

I proceeded to repeat this process & apply it over the rest of my hair.
I'm currently air-drying my hair.


Oh, I want to add:
I did this, fresh out of the shower, with lingering steam/humidity still in my bathroom.
I think that part of the environmental effects, significantly aided me in this experiment.

Less of a refreshing session & more of a removing shed hair & light detangling session.

Initially refreshed my hair with regular water in a spray bottle.
Sectioned off 1/2 into a large Bantu Knot.

Applied The Mane Choice Exotic Cool-Aid Sweet Papaya & Pineapple Infinite Conditioner, as my 1st detangling agent.
Trying to keep myself from being over zealous throughout, I braided the detangled section into 1 braid.
I repeated these steps on the other side.

After unraveling 1 of the braids. I sectioned off the hair into 3 main sections.
Added more warm-lukewarm water to the section.
I raked in the JAZZUPMYCURLZ Grapeseed Buttercream to ensure distribution & detangle my hair a bit.
Did this more the remaining sections, adding in either &/or more water & Grapeseed Buttercream throughout my hair.
Once finished with that section, I allowed it to air-dry.
& repeated the previous steps.
Some last minute touches and smoothing of my hair.
I'm currently air-drying my hair.

Another detangling/removing matting at the roots & shed hair, session.

I split my hair down the middle, sectioned off one side with a scrunchie.

1st I sprayed regular water onto the loose hair side.
Running my hands over it and gently separating the larger matted sections.
I applied The Mane Choice Exotic Cool-Aid Sweet Papaya & Pineapple Infinite Conditioner, starting at the ends and spreading it throughout my hair.

I finger detangled the entire section, then split it into 3 sections.
For a more thorough detangling session.
I added a bit of more the conditioner & lukewarm water as needed.
I braided up the detangled sections.
Repeated the previous steps on the other side.

Even though the braids already started unraveling, this isn't a definite set style.
Just something to, hopefully, help keep my detangled hair separated until I figure what to do with it.
