Death to the Tangle Teezer!

When I first started using the Tangle Teezer, I thought I had found my holy grail detangling tool. I was in complete awe at how well it removed tangles as it gently glided through my hair. But alas I was plagued with an unusual amount of rough and split ends. It was so bad that I ultimately ended up trimming about an inch off my ends. I love the feel of fresh healthy ends, but I'm disappointed that I am no longer grazing APL. I have to return back to old faithful, my wide tooth comb. I chucked the tangle teezer in the garbage, so i can't be tempted to use it again.

Wash n' Go Part 2: Eco Styler - Olive Oill

I am so late posting this. Last week I tried another wash n' go using Eco Styler - Olive Oil. Although I used a tad bit more gel than needed, I was in love with the results. The best part of the whole experience is I managed to get second day hair.Smiley  I could not believe it. Now, if I can find a way to make it last 3-4 days, I'll really think I'm doing something.

Here's the videos:

Hope you enjoy.

Wash n' Go Part 1: Conditioner only

Since the weather is starting to get warmer, I want to revisit the wash n' go. I haven't worn this style in almost a year, when my hair was drastically shorter. At the time I was doing a true wash n' go. Meaning I did all detangling, product application, and styling in the shower. Since my hair is longer, I'm on a quest to find a technique that will give me great results with minimum knots and tangles.

The first technique I used was the conditioner only method. Not to be confused with the Tightly Coily method. I did not follow Teri's instructions. If you are not familiar with her technique, check out Tightly Curly. Anyway my video is below. Tell me what you think.
