After a day in the sticks with no shade....sweated my hair totally out,

Washed AND detangled (in 6 sections) with African liquid black soap. I didn't use a rinse out.

Curl Junkie Curl Rehab as my leave-in

Redken's Butter Curl 14 as my styler for about 16 braids followed by Shescentit's Lush Butter for a soft hold.

I am drying nicely now. Minimal shrinkage which is very rare for me.
**sophisticated ignorance, I type my cuss words in cursive**

Current Rotation (always changing): Curl Junkie Curl Rehab as my Leave-In, Blended Beauty Happy Nappy Styles, Entwine Argan Oil, Bobeam Shampoo Bars, QB CTDG and QB AHTB, UFD Curly Magic, B.A.S.K Anything.

Yesterday henna'd for the first time in months! I need so much henna now, so I guess my moptop is growing.

Used henna:amla:maka in approx. 4:2:1 ratio. Brewed hibiscus, a tsp of AVC, 2 tbs of honey and the last of some Bear Fruits conditioner - added to the powders.

Completely forgot that I normally pre-henna with coconut oil. Hair was dry-ish and coarse feeling post-rinse out (~10hrs later, dye-released on my head, DB Cleansing Cream used to rinse out), but clumped into curls almost completely uniform and elongated. I panicked at the elongation and really smothered my hair with CJ Curl Rehab.

DC'd all day today and rinsed out a few hours ago. Hair shrunk up as normal, so panic over!

LOC'd with watered down CJ Smoothing Lotion (L), QB Softening Serum (O) and QB BRBC (C).

Wearing a wash and go.
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!
Whoa! Your hair has grown so much!
ETA: This was for Sandycoils.

Wash and go. I cowashed and detangled with Suave Coconut conditioner and did a final rinse with weak black tea. Used watered down YTCucumbers conditoner as a leave in and scrunched in olive oil over that.

Wash and Go w/ Garnier Fructis Pure Clean.

My frizz in the front is frizzier than usual. Not sure if I should Shampoo and DC or just DC. Been CG for about 3 weeks. Natural for 1 month. Transitioned 20 months.
Today I'm so in love with my hair! I was so consumed with finding the right staple products for my 4b/4c hair that I became a product junkie. This morning I got up and shampooed my hair with my Shea Moisture Moisture Retention Shampoo (Love it), then I did a 5 minute condition with my Redken Real Control Intense Renewal, then while my hair was sipping wet, I scrunched some KC Knot Today in it, added some coconut oil to seal it and that's it. Only those two products are in my hair and its never looked better. I been getting mad compliments all day! Ima go home and box up all that other expensive crap cuz its no longer needed

I must have 4D hair!

I'm a little late...yesterday, shampooed with Acure Organics Moroccan Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell Shampoo (great shampoo!), and conditioned with the Moroccan Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cell Conditioner (decent conditioner).

I used Amazing Botanicals Honey Condish as a leave-in, and twisted with Hibiscus Gel.

Today...misted with Amazing Botanicals Aloe Mint Spritz, and sealed with Vatika Oil.

Dry, matted hair with soooo many SSKs! Trying desperately to recover it now.

Yesterday did a HOT with Wild Growth Oil. Hair instantly felt softer (forgotten how good HOTs are!), but I decided to do the GHE overnight as well.
Just going to detangle it with watered down KCKT mixed with Tresemme Naturals and let it dry in sections.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Twisted last night w/ Keracare Butter Cream

Twist out this morning added Coconut Oil

It'll do.

ETA: So I guess I was in such a hurry I didn't really LOOK at my hair this morning. This is the best twist out since I chopped. Want to find a cheaper cream to twist with once I'm done with this jar.

Yesterday - Rescued my hair with a 50, 20, 20, 10 mix of water, aloe juice, tressemme nats and KCKT. Awwwwwwwwesome softener and detangler! Dunno why I'm always so reluctant to straight up mix my products.
Had to work with small sections because of the matting, so the twists I put each detangled section in were small enough to wear as a style. Braided AND banded the twists to stretch them amap.
Today - nada! Kept it covered and stayed indoors.
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Took out my mini twist after two weeks. Used hair dew and olive oil to twist spritz w/ water and sealed w/ olive oil everyday. My hair looks and feels nice.

When i'm tired I swear my parts are correct, not so in the light.

Applied HV Red tea moisturizer and then twisted bang with the gel.

Pulled the back up in a tucked ponytail.
