I think I do all the stuff they tell you not to do. :-)
I wash my hair every 3 or 4 days now that it's hot outside. I've been using Shea Moisture Olive and Marula Baby Wash, but I used Garnier Fructis Pure Clean this morning.
I used a very small amount of conditioner on the lower half of my hair.
Because it's humid, I blow dry my hair until it's just slightly damp.
Then I add a little bit of oil and I'm done.
I don't twist my hair often (I've twisted my hair maybe 4 times and I've been locked for over a year), but when I do,.I use Curls Passion Fruit Curl Control Paste.
