New Technique for Extending Good Hair Days? 4 Days Down!

Saturday's wash day turned out extremely well! I was so happy. Not only that, but I tried a new technique at night to see if it would help extend the good hair days and it did!! Read on for details plus FOUR hair of the days worn down!


Day 1

Here is what I used:
  • Cleanser: DevaCurl No Poo Decadence
  • Conditioner: DevaCurl Deep Sea Repair and Melt Into Moistured mixed together, left in hair hour with no heat then rinsed out
  • Stylers (wet): Inahsi Naturals Soothing Mint Moisturizing Conditioner (as a leave in), DevaCurl B'Leave In, ArcAngel, Curls Blueberry Bliss Oil mixed with Briogeo Rosarco Oil 
  • Stylers (dry): DevaCurl SuperCream

After the shower, I applied products as usual onto soaking wet hair one by one, scrunching them in with my hair flipped upside down in the shower.  After applying all the products, I scrunched a ton again. I wrapped my hair in my Curl Ease towel while doing all my skin care stuff, removed the towel, then applied a little more ArcAngel and the oils mixed together and scrunched a whole lot more. I then airdried. Once my hair was completely dry, my front hairline pieces were still looking a bit dry and frizzy due to needing a trim so I went in with DevaCurl Supercream concentrating on them and then using the left overs on my ends.

I tried clipping up my roots to see if that helps them at all. I need more practice at this but this is how it looked wet:
I loved these results! I feel like every time I used the new DevaCurl masks, my hair comes out extra awesome. There is a good reason I'm obsessed with them!! :) I had great definition and minimal frizz.

These photos were taken inside with no flash but using my ring light.

 My skin looks extra smooth in these. I'm wearing the new Doll 10 Beauty HydraLux Smoothing foundation! If you haven't heard about it yet, check my blog here! It's AMAZING.


NEW TECHNIQUE
So I saw on one of my curly friend's, @glammeup's, instagram she mentioned she used DevaCurl gel on dry hair. I never thought to use the gel on dry hair before but thought to myself "hmmm, I wonder if I apply it before bed if it will further protect my hair through the night?. So before going to bed, I applied some more ArcAngel a half hour before laying down. Then, as usually pineappled my hair and slept on my satin pillowcases. Much to my delight, I think applying a bit more gel at night did help the defintion of my curls and frizz last a little longer. I didn't use much get at all. 2 pumps from the huge size. I want to see about getting one of DevaCurl's other gels to try on dry hair as well. I have a lot more experimenting with gel on dry hair I want to play around with now.

DAY 2
Day 2 my hair came out really good again.

Here is what I used:
  • DevaCurl Mister Right, SuperCream, Frizz Free Curls Blueberry Oil 
The bad news is, I got distracted when a bunch of family came over to celebrate my dad's birthday and I don't have many pictures. All I have is this one of my dad and I and my products are still half setting into my hair at this point. At least my dad is adorable?


DAY 3
Here is what I used:
  • Briogeo Scalp Revival Dry Shampoo, Up North Naturals Freshen Up Mist, Curls Blueberry Bliss Leave-In Conditioner, Be KeKoa Vanilla Tamanu Oil

This Day 3 hair was incredible! I tried working out but had to stop because I didn't feel well. But I still needed dry shampoo on my scalp as a result. Due to not feeling super great, I didn't have it in me to throw makeup on so don't mind the makeup free face (except lip gloss)

 Yes, that t-shirt is a Snoopy Doctor Who mash-up. I absolutely love it. It's available here in all different colors! (I don't get a thing for giving you guys that link btw.)


I really liked the bounciness and curl definition and lack of frizz for Day 3. This may be the best day 3 hair yet.


DAY 4
 I wasn't going to attempt day 4 wearing down. This is practically unheard of. But once I saw how nice day 3 turned out I said let me at least try. All I used was DevaCurl SuperCream and Briogeo Rosarco Oil. I applied a few pumps to thoroughly saturate my hair and scrunched. After a little while I used 2 pumps of the oil for all of my hair. Yes there is some frizz but for Day 4 I'll take it!
that front piece annoys the crap out of me!
  I posted all my makeup details from here on my instagram, but those shadows are from the Kylie Cosmetics birthday palette which I needed because there was so much pink and the gloss is one of the Buxom Cosmetics lip plumping glosses. I have had a lip plumper obsession lately.

I actually wound up going out last minute to a beauty event with Day 4 hair! Since it was last minute, I didn't have time to rewash or style. A tad mortified, yes, but I figured it is what it is. I was almost going to attempt to throw my hair up in something cute-ish, but I'm terrible at that and don't really like how my hair looks up. I used some pomade and lots of DevaCurl Flexible Hold Hairspray to fight the humidity and just crossed my fingers it wasn't super terrible. People at the event couldn't believe it was Day 4!

I'll be washing today (Wednesday) because I am going out tomorrow and want good Day 2 hair.


Photo Fail of the Blog
For those who don't know, I do have some annoying neck issues. This was accidentally snapped by topping as I was trying to pose and moved my neck the wrong way. It hurt like hell.
