Thanks Nea. Extra Strength! Wow if I used that my hair would be helmet head. lolol Hmm, I tried the kinky pudding under it and that didn't work. On it's own, the kinky pudding defines my curls with some crunch. Neither did the avocado hair cream work underneath it. I guess I'll try Qhem AOHC underneath as that's the heaviest cream I own.

Yep...the Avocado Coconut Milk Butter works well underneath it...for twisting.

I think Naturalista may have some suggestions for you...PM her. Your hair texture is similar to hers?

If I use the Kinky Pudding, I only use the Puree on the canopy because otherwise its too much hold for a WnG. I say after rinsing out the condish, use the butter as a LI, and then apply like 2 nickel sizes a section of the puree. You dont need much. It's deceptively slimy like KCCC where you can easily use too much and end up icky like boogers or get frozen head.

Ah...to be a well pampered pootiecat. I can sleep on my owner's lap. Roll over on my back when I want my stomach rubbed. Purr with delight. Suddenly jump off and walk away for no reason. Not respond when I am called. Throw my leg up and lick with intense abandon. Sleep 85% of the time. Hang my head off the couch and view the world upside down.

I did Elle's multi-pinapple last night hoping that it would mean I would have to co-wash in the morning. It turned out great. This will be a lifesaver.
Finally 100% natural. I'm embracing my curls.

cowashed with yes to carrots, shook-rinsed my hair out. sprayed my moisture water bottle mix in, placed my jumbo satin cap on... shook it once more... then diffused. (thats pretty much my normal regimen.

products: after everything I've tried & loved, I'm now down to just using yes to carrots conditioner. i actually just rub it on my hair while dry, get my hair moisted up with just that, then carefully finger comb/seperate sections of my hair (takes about 15-20 minutes). after that, i hope in the shower, let the water hit and shake-rinse my hair and massage my scalp. once out, i simple let my hair air dry. every now and then, i'll use a diffuser.

btw, pardon my all lower case. i just love 'em.
Last night, oiled my scalp and hair with bhringraj oil, pulled hair into a puff and baggied.

This morning, used some of Mozeke's Grapeseed Detangler to soften up my hair just to see if it would work dry and it did!

Washed in sections concentrating on my scalp with JBCO Shampoo. Followed with DB's Pumpkin Seed condish, which had no slip for my hair but it did moisturize nicely, me likes. Rinsed and followed with DB's Deep Conditioning Mask (OMG! I LURVES IT!!) and detangled at that point and it was a breeze due the excellent slip! As soon as I started using it my hair behaved as if it had never been tangled in its life! I let it sit for maybe an hour with a just a cap, no heat. Soft, smooth feeling hair.

Used Oyin's Hair Dew as a leave-in - excellent on my wet hair.

Got stumped on what to use as a cream/sealer. I wanted to put my hair in braids for a braidout in a couple of days. Wanted to use something different so I used Zipporah's DMH Deep Conditioner. All those butters seem to me more appropriate for a butter cream then a DC, so I said what the heck.... I adore the way this creamy butter just melts in my hands even has some hold to it. I will see if my fine hair is okay with the wax once I take the braids down, but I think I managed the usage well. I like the velvet texture and easy absorption of the product.

I used a smidge of DB Curl Styling Cream in certain areas where I tend to frizz, but I don't think I needed it. I just wanted to try it. On my ends I used JBCO.

Its the end of the day and I smell like vanilla mint and sugar cookies..... mmmmmmmm.... but its not overwhelming, I just get a whiff at times when I turn my head. A guy was flirting with me earlier about me smelling so good, lol

I have about 20 something braids in my hair now, pulled back into a mini bun. I'll probably take them down on Friday or Saturday to wear my weekend hair. Hopefully, I like the results.
