Love your hair Rona V. It reminds me of Rudee Chicks from the back.
It is important to follow the scientific method and only change one thing. Here is what I changed today. I added honey, shea butter, vitamin E oil, and coconut oil to my conditioner. I scrunched in a tiny bit of coconut oil after my leave in. Then I used the smasters/awesome hair method. I scrunched in Ecostyler and Pixied it half way dry. I raked in BRHG and Pixied the rest of the way dry.
My hair drys so much faster without adding the BRHG to soaking wet hair. I still have to work on this method and see if I can perfect it.
I clearly added too much stuff to my hair. It doesn't get weighed down, but it gets producty? oily? heavy looking? I'm not sure what the correct term is, but it is not good. I think I may be due for a low poo and that may be contributing to the problem.
Bla, bla, bla. I think I will have to start over tomorrow.

Thanks for the compliments, everyone! I am finally starting to get the hang of the basics of what works for my hair, so pretty soon it will be time to throw in some new experiments. I'm only having one small problem with my hair right now, which I'll start a new thread on when I take some documentation pictures later.
