Hi Susu,

Thanks!

For pics taken on 3/14, I rinsed with ACV, then conditoner washed with Kenra, then applied Kenra mixed with my jojoba/aloe vera gelly mix and applied that, added a bit more Kenra and finished with a light coat of Aussie's Tizz No Friz..did not finger comb products through hair.

For the first set of pics, I used Bed Head Moisture Manaic as a conditioner wash and leave in , glycerine/aloe vera mix and Joico mousse, finger combed products through the hair.

I get better results not combing products through my hair. I am going to stick with Kenra combination for awhile and see what happens.

Beautiful hair! I envy the moisture of your hair. My curls keep changing and it looks similar to yours now. They were annoyingly dry, frizzy, and small compared to others curls on 3c board, but now that I see your hair I have hope that I can grow mines out and they will as beautiful as yours. Thanks for posting, it really lifted my "hair blues".

Sugarhoneyicedtea, thanks for the compliment, and you are welcome (about me posting the pics). I am glad I could help someone.

I also deal with dryness. So far, I get the best results wearing my out with Kenra and detangling with Moisture Manic from Bed Head. Jojoba oil also helps with dryness and a tad goes a long way.

Apple Cidar Vinegar rinses also help.

In six to seven months, I am going to get my hair cut so I can wear it out without having to wear a handband. I can't wait, and I will be sure to post updated pics.

I am going to another state, but not to those fancy salons.

Seven months is just the timeframe of when I will be going for a visit, so I thought I would scratch off several to-do items at once.

What are the proportions for your aloe vera mixes? I might like to try them.

la****j,

If I remember correctly:

1 TBS of jojoba oil and 5 to 6 TBS of Lily of Desert 99% aloe vera gelly. Put in container and shake well before using. I left some room for shaking, so these numbers should be fairly correct.

I meant to write the proportions down, but I forgot.

I tried to post a photo in the post, but it doesn't seem to be working for me. Any tips?
