Today i went back to my tried and true routine:
💧 wash with tj’s spa nourish shampoo (which i think gets me too clean in the winter so i may have to put this one on hold soon - standby)
💧 squish to condish and leave on for about 5 mins shea moisture detox and refresh hair and scalp conditioner (it’s lighter than their curl and shine line and i think much better if you’re a looser wavy with hair that’s easily weighed down or gets oily quickly)
💧 rinse that out and add a pea size amount of mop top leave in (which is just heaven, my hair loves this stuff), more stc and while i have the leave in and i’m still in the shower i lean my head over and take the top section of my hair up and comb with a wide tooth comb and then scrunch before tipping it back upright - this helps get me with clumping, definition, and lift at the crown 💧 then while dripping wet i scrunch in generous amounts of ogx quenching coconut curls moisturizing mousse (my absolute fave and so cheap) and then aussie instant freeze gel
💧today i scrunched the excess water out with a satin scarf and i think this helped leave in the right amount of water and cut down on frizz 💧 then diffused (see highlights) with no clipping today. i think i may have slightly less volume, but maintained more clumping and less frizz at the crown so it’s definitely a trade off. 🤷🏻♀️ 💧scrunched at 100% dry and did zero fluffing or scalp massage cause i was feeling this squeaky clean, soft, frizz free mop today ✨
i missed the volume. but there’s always tomorrow to pump it up with scalp massage, fluffing, root picking, and dry clipping. we’ll see what tomorrow brings! i’ll share the details of my routine in my stories later today if i have time.
