Styling method: Same as usual, plus spraying my mag sulfate concoction all over. I just made up the recipe, not sure if those amounts are really enough to do anything but I figured it was a starting point! I do think my hair was "springier" and some of the curls had a smaller diameter than usual. I'm more interested in springier than smaller. I am open to suggestions for modifying my concoction. :) Here are the photos:
