1) Denman brush
2) Olive oil pre poo
3) Washing in 16 two strand twists vs separated in 4 sections. (major cut down on tangling)

Since I'm seeing detangling a lot...can I share my #2. This cute little detangling comb I brought. I must admit I initially grabbed it because it because it was cute...but as I examined it and realized it was seemless I thought it might be a good buy...



I would have never thought using a comb that had teeth this close would dentangle well. Plus it's making my ends feel smooth and less tangled. My ends never felt right when I was using a wide tooth comb. Oh an it's made by Conair.

JahNaturalDezign I have that comb too. I thought it was cute so I picked it up. I didn't realize it was a seamless comb. That is good to know. I am glad I didnt toss it out.

1. No 'cone diet. I was wondering why my hair was sooooo $%^&* frizzy and dry until I stopped using cones and embraced the Curly Girl method.

2. Generous conditioner application during co-washes.

3. Taking the time to detangle carefully. No more raking though my hair.

my sentiments exactly.. except i do still shampoo (alternate that with cowashes) well "lowpoo" same difference. This is the best system for me.

& i noticed immediate difference once i cut the cones.. i get more consistent results as well! This is what really led me to doing the natural thing fully!

which leads me to add -- Listen to your hair! take others suggestions but tailor your regimen & products to what YOUR hair likes..

1. Leave in conditioner
2. unrefined shea butter mix ( I can't use it straight. I "cream" it with EVOO, EVCO, castor oil glycerin/honey)

1. My trim I got a few months ago I knew something was wrong with my hair but I didn't know that split ends was causing so much havoc on my hair
2. Sealing nightly & paying attention to my ends while doing so

1. Henna - I can't imagine life without it. It has made my hair stronger and I love the full, rich color it gives.

2. The internet - This is the first place, outside of my family that I was able to see people with hair like mine!
It's so refreshing.
