I’m editing the below post to add pics from today– 4th day hair! I would’ve taken pics yesterday but hubby had the camera in Durham.
Although it’s a bit shrinkier and a tad bit frizzier, it’s still totally workable. I again slept (and worked out) with my hair pineappled, and to help it return to a ‘downward’ position, I showered, brushed my teeth, and dressed with it pulled into a low loose pony with my trusty satin scrunchy.
Overall, I’m pleased with the results and can’t wait to try it again! I had plans to do it tonight, but the ‘itis has set in– gotta love those Ihop pancakes.
It’s hump day… and I’m friggin’ drained. I’m hungry, achy, puffy, tired and hungry, hungry, HUNGRY! I did my hair on Sunday night (I think)- – the usual Twist-n-Curl, but I styled with the cone-laden Hydralicious Reconditioning Conditioner from Herbal Essence and a touch of Aveda’s Defining Whip. These pics are from Monday, and my hair today looks just as defined and frizz free, despite 89% humidity and a dew point above 70. Usually by day 3 and 4 of the YTC + Aveda combo, I have to pony, bun, or banana clip it to look presentable. Also, my hair feels very soft and moisturized.
I’ve been pineappling (sleeping with my hair in a high, loose pony on a satin pillow case) to preserve the curls, and it’s working like a charm! Definitely give this bedtime routine a whirl if you haven’t- – it keeps the curls stretched, defined, and un-smooshed.
I tried the Hydralicious a while back, but can’t remember if I used it as a detangler, or as a leave-in. I’m too lazy to search my own archives, lol. Anyway, I’ll try it again tomorrow night and report back.
