I’m loving the definition my curls have today! Even the crown area is pretty defined. I don’t know if the tea rinse made a difference in the softness or luster. The only thing I did differently this time was to add the curling pudding and gel to each each individual section instead of the entire section and ran my Denman brush through it before twisting. I also did smaller two strand twists on wet hair, which I don’t ever do anymore. I’ve still been using the grapeseed oil instead of EVOO. My thoughts on this will be posted soon.
