Hi everyone, noob here. I've been lurking for ages but just now signed up.
Anyhow, I know there's a whole part of the forum dedicated to BKT's. I skimmed through but didn't see any mention of what I discovered.
I bought the Organix BKT from the drugstore. I applied just as described, only I didn't straighten my hair at all. When it was still slightly damped, I pulled it back into a ponytail. I twisted the ponytail and stretched it as I wrapped it in a bun.
I let it stay in for 2 days. (I did it over a weekend since I didn't want to deal with battling dry, curly hair).
When I took the bun down, I noticed the curls were looser. I rinsed out the BKT with water only, and styled as usual (the bun mentioned above).
OMG I DID NOT HAVE TO APPLY ANY GEL TO MY HAIR. I wake up in the morning, fluff it out with damp fingers and I am ready to go! Amazing.
The coolest part is that when i had it brushed back in the bun. it straightened the top of my hair just enough to keep the curls under control.
Now I'm just wondering if my hair will fall out for misusing it! It's been 6 weeks, no hair loss or breakage yet, so I figured I'd share
