Ever have "stinky hair?" Not because you don't wash your hair often enough or anything (I know my Nikko's cousins know better *hands on hips*). I mean it appears that your hair absorbs odors from smoke, food, etc. You make yourself dizzy spinning around in circles trying to figure out where the smell is coming from (ok, well I hope you don't do that...LOL).
Well here is a solution...run over your hair with a Gain dryer sheet. Not only does it minimize static cling in hair (although our texture of hair doesn't have it to often); but it also freshens the hair. This is a good trick if you do have to postpone your wash day by a day or two. But please be warned that it does NOTHING for dandruff, dirt, dry scalp, etc. Ewwwwww...
So I have a box of gain dryer sheets in bathroom. I most frequently use it when I use heat to minimize any smells associated with that appliance.
Try it and let me know if you can smell a difference...I know I did!

So I'm at work debating whether or not I'm going to reset tonight when I get home.
Lesson learned: I need more than water to set my hair.

- Pre-pooed with cheapie conditioner and oil
- Shampooed with diluted shampoo in color applicator bottle and co-washed
- DCed with Motions CPR and oil
- Rinsed and towel-dried
- Applied Lacio Lacio leave-in
Not exactly sure how I feel about it. It's ok for a first attempt I guess...Some of the rollers weren't as tight as I wanted...especially the anchor rollers. I guess I'm not pinning it in the right place.
Things I will do differently next time...
- Just water setting lotion
- Steam treatment (using Sam Jones homemade method)
- Smaller rollers for more curl
- Not so much oil sheen (i like the shine at first, but it weight it down a bit)
I actually look forward to trying this again soon. It's Day 2 and it still looks really good!

Wondering where the Chi is?????? So was I. One tester felt that it burned their hair. Another said it took a long time to get hot, then it was too hot.
Now I know for those of us with a coarser grade of hair, the Chi has been a lifesaver. I have even considered getting one. But this has made me broaden my horizon.
I don't think this study rings true for most readers of this blog, but just wanted you to see what other people were saying about our favorite flat irons.
Happy Hair Growing!
