I tried this Sunday am and it worked really well for me.

I used the opportunity to do a protein DT as the first applied product to very damp hair.

I let it sit for 20 minutes then got in the shower, rinsed a little bit; scrubbed my scalp with lo'poo and rinsed completely and then used a mild ACV rinse. I added a teeny bit of moisturising RO and then plopped for a couple of minutes before I added my LI.

Results: drying time- cut down by at least 50% maybe more. My very porous hair usually takes between 6-8 hours to air dry with sufficient product to keep down the frizz and poof. Hair was completely dry by the 3-4 hour mark.

My waves/curls were much more defined and there was less frizz. I got a compliment from almost everybody I know that day, which never usually happens.

So I think I need to use more LI possibly mixed with CK to add hold and maybe this will be my new routine. I couldn't get 2nd day hair because I don't think I used enough LI and I had very light floaty dandelion fluff hair the next morning.

I'm getting some of the damaged parts cut off Wed. (about 6 inches) so we'll see if this can make my hair even better over the next few days...here's hoping.

Del2C; I'm so glad you posted this method as I think it's been the secret I've been looking for. I'm almost pleased with my hair for the first time since January. I'm hoping for better things after my hair cut.
