When I have freshly washed hair, I massage some 100% Pure Aloe Vera Gel into my scalp and roots to keep my scalp moisturized and give my roots a little volume. Then I scrunch more into the ends of my hair to help it hold its bit of natural wave. Some days, I just stop here. Once it dries is somewhat holds its shape but doesn't look like it has anything in it.
If I want my hair to have a bit more of a styled look, I scrunch in one of these two products-
Royal Spa Structure Gel or Tresamme Flawless Curls Mousse. The resulting look is very similar either way, so it kind of just depends on my mood as to which one I use.
On second hair days, I always put a little dry shampoo in my hair at the roots, mainly in the front. If I'm just going to pin it back, I run my fingers through it and call it good. To get a bit more mussed up look and freshen it up, I'll wet my hands and run it through my hair, and then scrunch in some Aloe Vera Gel. To make it a bit more piece-y, sometimes I'll also work a bit of my homemade pomade (equal parts grape seed oil, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and beeswax) into the ends.

Tonight, Mike and I are going to the first show/gala for Rancho Mirage at New Rep, which is the show that he just Assistant Sound Designed. Time permitting, I'm going to try and curl my hair a bit and see what that does. Assuming I do it and it works out well, I'll post a picture or two.
