Today I used LOOB and ORS Twist and Lock gel with Sally’s generic PM sculpting lotion as a CK alternative. My hair is a bit stringy with frizz all over; I doubt my waves are going to last til the end of the day. I don’t think my hair likes LOOB….or the PM sculpting lotion for that matter. The first time I tried LOOB, I had just started the CG method so I attributed the crap hair day I had to my hair getting adjusted. I placed the LOOB at the back of my drawer to sit until my hair was used to the new routine.

I’ve been modified CG for about 8 months now and have been able to get consistently good hair days with some products, so I can’t chalk my so-so hair day to my hair getting adjusted. I’ll have to rule out which of the two is causing the frizz. I’m suspecting the LOOB because I have the dry feeling I experienced when using it the first time around. But who knows? All I can say is that I’m already missing my KCCC. Sigh. SO many bottles of gel and styling creme to go through. At least I know what products have been good to me so far…

ETA: definitely not a good hair day. As predicted, my waves lost their oomph and the frizz took over. Back to KCCC for tomorrow since I have to look good at the job fair. I’m starting to suspect that my hair doesn’t like PEG-hydrogenated castor oil. My hair felt a bit straw-like and dry – something I get with angell and arcangell, but to a lesser degree. The castor oil is pretty high up in the ingreds list with LOOB. Time will tell, but my gut is telling me this might be an ingredient to avoid.
