I love SheaM; the scent, the texture, how soft my hair is when I use it. BUT, I’m not liking that it may not mesh well with my new routine (courtesy of zigazaga).
Today I used Freeman for a cowash, yes to carrots rinse out, sheam combed in, and aura gel. Usually, and surprisingly even with the GF Bold It!, whenever I put my hair to side to scrunch in the gel my waves are in pretty sizeable clumps that I can see. Today, however, the clumps were skinnier and straighter. When I scrunch gel into my hair with zerran, the clumps easily accordion and are soft; instead, with sheam, the clumps felt as though there was already some holding action.
My hair is still in clips so I’m hoping I end up wrong about SheaM. If I’m not, I may have another bottle up on the swap board.
ETA: I think I might have jumped the gun. My waves are a bit looser, but not as stringy as it looked when wet. Huzzah! I scrunched out the crunch with Oyin burnt sugar pomade (yummy foodie scent!)
