Ok so back to this product junkie thing. I buy all these products because:
1.) I love to shop
2.) I love learning about my hair.
3.) I love options (different smells, different combos & different looks)
All of the products I use present different results for the most part. In learning about my hair, I learned that it's HIGHLY sensitive to humidity in the air. I need different levels of humectants and anti humectants depending on the level of moisture in the hair. As the temperature dropped in the Burgh and the dew points went down, I learned that my hair cannot tolerate glycerin as one of the 1st 5 or 6 ingredients. I LOVE LOVE LOVE Donna Marie's Dream curling cream & super buttercream but if the dews are lower than 40, its a no-go. I can't wait until spring so I can use this stuff again, it's my favorite glycerin styler.
I'm still learning my winter hair, but one thing I have learned so far is that my hair is LOVING oils in these low dewpoints. I have finally found my winter Deep Conditioner which is the B.A.S.K. Cacao Deep conditioner. I've talked to a few of you ladies on here about it and here's the skinny:
The texture reminds me of Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment masque. I used that masque very early on, right after I big chopped. However i've since outgrown it. It really doesn't do anything to my hair unless I add oils to it. But it's thick and super creamy. You turn that jar over and it doesn't move. The B.A.S.K. DC is just like that. THICK!!! And the smell....omg....CHOCOLATE MOUSE! When I put it in my hair, there wasn't much slip and I worried that this may not be 'all that'. This isn't the kind of DC that I would detangle with. But it does something once it's there, it straight up & down puts moisture into my hair. A lot of it!! That's what i'm looking for; results! When I was using the Jessicurl WDT, I felt like I needed
to cowash mid week to add mositure. Since i've been using the BASK, only cowash if I want to. I heard thru the grapevine that some chicks were trying this as a leave in. I'm super tempted because it feels like it's feeding my hair. But since it's not really dry I'll just hold onto for my wonderful deep condish sessions
So that was sunday. I washed with As I Am Coconut cowash, did a 20 min heat cap with Curl Junkie's Beauticurls strengthening conditioner and then did an hr with the B.A.S.K. DC. I then did about 20 2 strand twist, wet using Koils By Nature Leave in, Original Moxie's Hair Bling and Koils By Nature Gel for some hold. Lastly I dried with a diffuser until it was about 70% dry and let the rest dry overnight. 1st attachment is day 1, and the second is day 2.
Tonight, i'm gonna re-twist with Koils by Nature Nourshing hair & body butter and Curls milkshake as my leave in. I'll post pics tomorrow.
