This isn’t hair related at all (whoops!) but my wedding was featured online yesterday and I wanted to share with my friends :2inlove:

To make it hair related, I got a blow out the day before the wedding for our rehearsal dinner (the picture that’s my avatar) and then I added clip ins for thickness on the day of the wedding. My hair was already really long, but it was a special occasion and I wanted extra hair!


Also paging @IDareT'sHair because she doesn’t come in this thread but I want her to see!

You were absolutely radiant on your wedding day! These are beautiful pictures!

Is AG boost worth $30? What in cheese crackers?

I bought it, tried it a couple times, but honestly haven't revisited it in months and probably wouldn't repurchase. I've been using the Matrix products my stylist recommended. The liter size is less than $30. I'm heavy handed with product, WNG 2x per week most weeks, and it lasts for almost 6 months. I'm good.

Styled with Photogenics styler.

not a fan of the application but it is heavyish. Usually dries with a soft hold. Trying to use up. Didn’t use anything else because it’s a one and done.

I’ll air dry until 7 and then sit under the dryer later on before bed.

Timed my hair day again.

I spend between 25 - 28 minutes on each half of my head to shampoo twice, condition and detangle. So about 1 hour total to wash and detangle my hair.

Then I spend 45 minutes styling.

Even though my hair is growing, I’m down to a system and don’t foresee the time increasing my ton even if my hair grows more.

I’m okay to spend this much time on a set that lasts 7-10 days. This week I let it go for 10 days.

I'm really getting my combos and techniques down which, for me, leads to one thing: hair boredom. Lol.

I'm itching for more color (highlights/balayage) again even enough I said I was done.

I'm going to install some diy spring twists at the end of the month. Maybe that'll break it up enough for me.
I’m itching to try the new it’s a 10 coily line. Is anything going to beat UFD and Jell-O shot for me? Probably not.

Does that stop me from trying? NOPE

Has anyone tried the innersense I create lift foam?

They have a travel size thats tempting me for quick travel styling.

I wish the doux had travel sized products.

Do you guys rake more or smooth more when you style?

I smooth when I apply my products, but once it’s in, I only rake.
I smooth the products in when I’m initially applying. When I go through to actually style I take a small piece, rake a few times to make sure my hair is detangled and curls are separated, then I smooth and move that section out of the way.

I did another one of my cousin’s hair this weekend, y’all. UFD + wetline really seems to be a universal combo.

it came out sooooo bomb. We went to a wedding, so I hope I can find a pic to share.

next potential convert is my mom. She is convinced that she cannot do her hair in this fashion and I keep reminding her that we literally have the same hair. I mean, seriously...density and curl pattern.

This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing. It was romantic and like a fairy tale. You are a beautiful bride. I am glad it was such a wonderful event for you, your family and friends. It turned out wonderfully. I love that you two have known each other for so long. I don't know why I thought you had been married forever :perplexed:

I'm loving your mom's look. I love the hair and that dress.

Which conditioner did you prefer?
I’ve never tried the Be Gentle Be Kind before. I ordered the aloe + oat milk fragrance free one because a stylist near me that I follow recommends it.

I used the Curl Charisma yesterday and I like the performance, but I don’t really like the scent. I’m sure I could get used to it, but before I make it my staple I want to try this one.

Today is reset today. I've gone back and forth between a wash and go and twist. Now that it is almost 4 pm, I'm thinking twist have won out. I have an event mid August and I wanted to have a nice wash and go for that. I'm on the fence on how I'm going to wear it. I will need to do at least 1 more wash and go before then to see if my gel/water ratios are better.
