Small update since I've read info here. My hair is softer, not as dry and healthier
I did straiten my hair the beginning of this month and it was beautiful, but a few days later I went back to the curls. I actually missed them a lot. So low maintenance.
What's part of my regimen now is:
Organix coconut milk shampoo and conditioner(got them buy one get one free), Shea butter mixed with the cantu leave-in conditioner, tea tree oil in my spray bottle and thats it. I've been itching to buy this coconut curling cream I see at the store I work at, but it's a little too expensive for me and I don't really need it right now
