So I was hella excited to find out that my STL stylist would be in NYC during my visit for the E.P.I.C. Tracee meetup. I called ahead to make an appointment but it wasn't until she arrived at my condo that I spontaneously decided to forgo two inches. So after a quick wash and a very light diffusing, she began snipping away at my undefined, damp hair and I can't lie, I was scurred. I'm talking Michael Richards at an NAACP meeting scared. As she grabbed what seemed to me to be random sections of hair, and as I watched tuft after tuft fall to the floor, my first reaction was to morph into a super diva. I mean, it was like this-
But after talking myself down, I was able to think clearly and rationalize... one, she's a professional, two, it's just hair and it'll grow back (charge it to the game) and three, it would make for great blog content either way! In the end, she killed it and I couldn't be happier.

I intended to try a new gel today (Curl Junkie) but didn't remember until my hair was already styled... such is life.
I did however try two 'new-to-me' instant conditioners for detangling- Tresemme Naturals and Suave Humectant. In the shower, I split my hair in two and applied Tresemme to the left side and Suave to the right. Both had tons of slip, provided moisture and gave great definition, but I've gotta give this round to Tresemme. I'll most definitely be adding it to the rotation.
