I modifed my Modifed Curly Girl Method

Curly Girl Method isn't perfect, at least not for me, so I ended up having to change my already modified Curly Girl method. My hair is wavy not really curly. I'm guessing conditioner washing AND using a leave-in conditioner was starting to weigh my hair down.

This weekend I decided to try using a sulfate/silicone free shampoo- Giovanni Tea Tree Triple Treat Shampoo. I then carried on with my normal shower routine using Giovanni 50/50 Balanced conditioner for my rinse out conditioner. After my shower, I did not use any leave-in conditioner. Just skipped that step entirely. Then I just continued on with scrunching and applying gel to my hair.

I plopped for about 15 minutes. I think I get better results when I diffuse my hair with a blow dryer instead of letting it air dry but, sometimes I'm just in a rush that I don't have time to blow dry all my hair. I think I'll be sticking with my new routine for a little bit.

This was by the end of the day. I can't wait for the products that I have now to run out so I can try some new products.

Trying to take this picture really reminded me of the infamous Myspace bathroom picture. You know what I'm talking about. You've posted up at least one bathroom pic.

Haha, I actually might've had one. Then again I'm a camera whore. At least I used to be when I used my Myspace extensively. :P

I'm slacking on this CG method. This time of the year is just too busy & stressful for me! Ahh.

Christle: You should add a bathroom picture to your Facebook.

Janelle: I still go on Myspace but, not as into it as I used to be, especially now that my 12 and 13 year old cousins are taking it over.

I didn't do the CG method at all in San Diego. I needed a break.

Anonymous: Thank you again.

MakeupByRenRen: Ehh, Myspace isn't that great anymore. I will still sign on most days though. It is a way to keep in touch with people that you don't get to see that often. You'd be surprised who's on there.

A.Rose: I'm not strict CG anymore. Actually I've never been strict CG. I'm starting to experiment with different products again. Even ones with silicones.
