3rd Day refresh success!

from Instagram: http://ift.tt/21dv6mx
Super happy with this Day 3 refresh. I’m currently using a spray bottle with about 1 cup water, 3 drops lavender oil and about a third of a dropper of Argan oil instead of plain  water to spritz down morning hair. I call it Lavender argan water. So I did a medium amount of spritz down with that and then about one pump of Deva Supercream  scrunched in all over the length and then Curly Hair Solutions CurlKeeper. Surprisingly good combo!  #hair #hairofinstagram #bbloggers #wavy #wavybob #wavyhair #wavyswavy #wavyswavyhair #curlyhair #curls

Olaplex #3 overnight and Curl Junkie Coffee Cocoa Creme Lite

Well results after Olaplex step #3 overnight. (Have not had a full treatment. Just the take home stuff) But I did a ton of squish to condish with Tresemme perfectly undone in the shower. I used ONE styler, Curl Junkie Coffee Cocoa Curl Creme lite. Only second time trying that, first time I’ve tried it by itself. No gel. I’m pretty impressed. Since sleeping overnight in the Olaplex didn’t make it icky or anything I will do it once a week until the bottle is gone and see if that is more impressive than I originally thought. I only used it once before. It seemed no better than a good deep condition. But it sure has bounce today with only one product styling which is unheard of for me.

Jon Snow Wavy Hair Cocktail Tutorial

Long time no see, Wavies! I have a new tutorial I had to tell you all about in case it works for you too. I was reading an article in Esquire Magazine in which Kevin Alexander (<— Read it!) the hair guru on Game of Thrones described what he did to Kit Harington's hair for Jon Snow (and I suspect most of the men on there). I had a couple of products I thought might fit the bill so I decided to experiment. I've been extremely happy with this as a refresh routine lately. I haven't tried it on fresh hair so I don't know how well it would work that way, but as a refresh it's been awesome. I've used it anywhere from day 2 to the rare day 4 hair. This works. It holds up in high dew, high humidity (I suspect it is the pomade helping there). It's soft and feels natural and very flexible.

I'm using Oribe Rough Luxury Soft Molding Paste and Innersense Organic Beauty InnerPeace Whipped Texturizing Creme. Use very little as you can always add more. You must spritz first with water which keeps it from being crunchy. So sit back and watch the video and see if this is something you would like to try!

Scrunch out the Crunch: Frizz reducing alternative

woman-311607_1280

Nation, do you ever go to scrunch out your clumps and everything comes apart?  All your great looking waves that you know are waiting just fall apart? Or are you a frizz prone wavy or curly and scrunching out crunch creates frizz so you stay away from the crunchy products that will actually set your waves and curls better?

Then here is an alternative way to SOTC (Scrunch Out the Crunch) method for you. Over on the Wavy Hair Community Wendy, from the Science-y Hairblog and the fabulous Etsy hair analysis shop GoosefootPrints, presented us with an idea that I, at least, have seen no where else. It’s called rope scrunching. I made a short video to introduce you to it.  It really does help SOTC without destroying clumps and curls and might be a great thing for you to add to your arsenal of hair techniques.

Take sections of your crunchy hair and without pulling on it, twist the section, kind of pressing as you go. The crunch will come out, but it won’t be going against the clump like bottom scrunching does. Here is a little video demonstrating it!

Isn’t that brilliant?

Edit: Wendy pointed me at this Ouidad video where they show twist/rope type scrunching. Still brilliant and I’m leaving my plugs in.
