Yeahhhhhh, I like it this way also. My daughter is 4a and it REALLY worked as a DT for her.....the results were even more noticeable on her.
Lately I've been rinsing, putting on the GVP CB, sealing with oil, then braiding in 4-5 braids and sitting under my bonnet until dry.
It's been working so awesomely so far, especially with these cold mornings. In the mornings I just unbraid and refresh with my water/oil mix....instead of having to immerse my entire head. Or smooth sections with wet hands and scrunch lightly. I rebraid, or pineapple, at night and sleep in my satin bonnet.
