I then finger comb each section until the curls clump together; I then smooth a dab of water rich moisturizer on each section (Nexxus makes an organic one which I absolutely love! it's called Luxxtress. It moisturizes without being greasy.)I then two strand twist the sections and tie my hair up for the night. The next morning I simply undo the twists and apply a little Curly buttercreme and loosen the curls with a blast of warm (not hot) air from the blowdryer for approximately 20 to 30 seconds while gently pulling the curls down.
Again, I repeat this routine nightly. It sounds like a lot, but it only takes about 15 minutes total. Honestly, for me, my curls don't hit their stride until about day 4or 5 and with each day the curls get looser and looser and my hair is more moisture rich as the days pass.
Best of all, I loose maybe 5 hairs per day! :P
I would be very interested to know what you all think.
By the way, I'm new to this sight, and I'd like to say thank you to each and everyone of you for sharing all of your wonderful hair care tips!!!
I don't do this routine exactly, since I'm transitioning, but it makes sense. I probably won't use the curly pudding or buttercream though, because I love my Qhemet products so much.

What ingredients are in the KMS treatment and the Luxxtress? I have not heard of Luxxtress. Where can you get these products? I like the idea of using the spritz with 1:1 water and leave in. I use 1:4 oil and water mixture, but it still leaves my hair oily. Maybe I need to try that nightly?

This sounds like a good routine. I am going to have to try it. I think that if it's working for you, you don't get crazy buildup, and your hair isn't shedding that you must be doing something right
