Sorry just saw your post. I have been co washing every other day, twice a week I use Shea moisture shampoo. I due tangle in the shower. Use a very wide tooth comb after finger combing to distribute conditioner. I have been using tresesme naturals. I would scrunch some of the conditioner out. I would do this with my head flipped upside down. Then in the shower I would add Shea moisture curl smoothie and la looks gel and comb through my hair again. I scrunch firmly and then go back and separate the ones stuck together. I take my microfibres towel and scrunch sown water out. Then I air dry. I haven't done any protein treatments and for deep treatment I just pit coconut oil at night braid in two braids and put in hair bonnet.
