So far so good. A little sweat comes with the territory I see. I'll do this for the month and see what results I'll get. I think this is going to be apart of my winter regimen. I like the moisture. I just rinse in the morning and I'm good. I cowash every other day but I don't think it will take away from the process. We'll see.

Have you tried not rinsing it out the next morning? Before I started the GHE I deep conditioned at the beginning of the week, and did the GHE every night and in the morning my hair was moist, soft and good to go. Today I put my hair in fingercoils and will keep them in for 3 or 4 days, wear the coil out for a day and then cowash & deep condition my hair and continue with the GHE for at least 5 nights/week. Lets see how that goes.

I added oil 3 out of 4 nights. Last night there was no need because my hair felt great. Even if I don't see an immense amount of growth, I'm loving the moisture! I haven't cowashed or anything this week, just moisturized and twisted or pineappled. I'll wash on Sunday and start again next week. My husband is like "ok, what are you doing to your hair now?" Lol

Is anyone doing this to their hair, but onto styled hair? i.e. if I'm wearing twists all week, then I don't take the twists out in the morning.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
I had flat twists in. I just let them dry and then spray them with some type of mist and go. You can rinse just don't strip your scalp of its natural oils

Okay, so I watched Naptural85's video with her misting at night and baggying to create the GHE as you ladies call it.

My question is....once you take the plastic bag off in the a.m. and have all of this wonderful moisture are you all sealing before leaving the house? I noticed Naptural85 mentioned her hair is dry sometimes by the end of the day.

The dews are in the low 30's already where I live and if I even try to leave the house with hair super moisturized without sealing it will be crispy dry halfway thru the day as all the moisture will have been zapped right out.

In the morning i take off the cap and bonnets while i get in the shower and let the steam of the shower (not rewetting my hair at all) get to my hair. Then I just go. The GHE is aimed toward letting the natural oils of our scalp help aid in growth/moisture. So i dont think it matters much if its styled, at least i havent seen a difference.

I started baggying my daughter's ponytails this week. I am loving the results. I misted with rose water and then applied vatika oil. Super soft hair and the moisture last all day

But with the oil and the "steam" that's created, I've found that I'm getting the best of both worlds with this method -- moisture in the morning that lasts all day and a method that's finally easy enough for me to live with.

Ok, I was off yesterday (from work), so I decided to take out my fingercoils and wash(sheamoisture moisture retention shampoo) and condition my hair and recoil it. I used coconut oil to each twist, because its heavier, and the weather out here is getting brisk. (I did not GHE last night). This morning I spritz with a mist of water ( I literally point the spray bottle up in the air and let the mist gently rain on my hair, as opposed to spraying it head on) to waken the coils, and rubbed shea butter in the palms of my hands and applied to my hair and sealed with some evoo. I will resume the GHE tonight.
