The Best Wash & Go Combo I've Had...Yet

So far this is the best wash & go combo I have had yet and the first one to give me multi-day hair. My hair was hard the first day, but the second...OH MY! The softest juiciest curls ever! No crunch, none! Defined from root to tip. When does that ever happen!?

Rinse: warm water (massage scalp)

Co-wash: Desert Essence Coconut Conditioner (finger detangle, smooth, twirl and pin section)

Rinse: warm water (all sections while still pinned)

Leave-in: Darcy's Botanicals Sweet Cocoa Bean Curl Smoothing Cream (smooth through each section)

Leave-in 2: BASK YAM Nectar Intense Honey Hair Nourisher (smooth through each section)

Styler: Donna Marie Miracurl Curling Gelly

I am so pissed that I have no pictures of this. :( and I used the LAST of my BASK YAM to complete the style. I have been trying to figure out with product gave me the definiton/hold by doing wash & go's and swapping out products in each step. I tried to replace BASK YAM with Qhemet Biologics Olive & Honey Hydrating …

April Update

For the past few weeks, I've been following the Curly Girl Method. There's info all over the web about it so I won't be redundant. I've been using Curl Junkie Daily Fix whenever I need to cleanse. Otherwise, I deep condition overnight, then rinse and apply some conditioner. I either rinse it partially or not at all. I'm still moisturizing and sealing everyday. I prefer washing in sections, but skip it if i'm in a hurry.

I'm avoiding my products with water-insoluble cones for now, but I'll eventually return to using them. My goal is to get my hair as moisturized as possible before putting in braids or twists with extensions.

Holy Grail/Staples list is coming soon, and a few more reviews.
