Something's rotten


Lest you think every day is a good hair for me, behold today's tragedy! Look at that frizz (and the roots in dire need of touch-up, but that's another problem entirely). What a disgrace. And I am still trying to figure out what went wrong.

I used Too Shea to condition, and Too Shea as a leave-in. Then I scrunched (rather than raked) in some Donna Marie Lock & Twist. Because I'd just written about Boots Curl Creme, I brushed some through with a Denman brush. I scrunched and then scrunched in some Fuzzy Duck. The curls were wonderful when it dried but by noon or so, this frizz on the top of my head denied me any pleasure I might have taken in the clumpy curls.

The dew point today was 46. This product combo should have been perfectly fine. Maybe, though, the L&T was too much? Maybe I shouldn't have used Fuzzy Duck? But why not? Could it have been .... dare I say it ... the Boots Curl Creme?

Woe was me. Tomorrow it's back to my Kinky-Curly Curling Custard and B5 Design Gel.

Me too!!!! I don't know what went wrong, but it was awful. I blame the bay area weather. (Even though that normally brings me pretty hair, not yesterday.) Hmmph.

The L&T has glycerin in addition to the cocoa hemp. Could that be your culprit? It didn't occur to me (my dews are lower than yours) until I slathered on some cocoa hemp one day on dry hair and got this weird frizz. Another day I slathered on the L&T same problem.

Diana, according to my jar of L&T, there is no glycerin in it. But according to the Donna Marie website, there is. Can they spell s-l-o-p-p-y labeling??? I tend to think my jar is accurate, though, because in even very cold weather, L&T has performed well for me. The mystery continues....

I bet she changed the formula....The scent is different so that is entirely possible!
