Thanks CurlyMJ, There is no secret, last time scissors touched my hair was dec2009. After I decided to grow it out, I never used any cones, no hot tools, no shampoo.
I co-wash once every 3-4 days, although I try to leave in some conditioner every single day coz my hair loves moisture. 3rd and/or 4th day I usually do buns and braids as protective styling.
Thats about it.
3a with some 2a-2c, Medium/Low Porosity
Co-wash:deva no-poo/Vo5 kiwi
Leave-in:Shea Moisture/GVP conditioning Balm/AOHSR
Since long hair- I finger twist in big chunks, which helps till 5th day hair
