@ss40^ Thank you! Yeah I usually don't want to bother because its such a process, but this time was surprisingly quick and not too bad. My mom did it for me and she was pleasantly surprised. Oh going to NY, I love it there, have a good time!

Do you like the loreal cleansing conditioner?

It's ok. It's nice if you need a gentle cleanse in between wash days. If you do only co washing, I wouldn't recommend it as it does have a surfectant. I won't be using it on a regular basis. In a head-to-head, As I Am Coconut CoWash would win.

Wash and go using only conditioner and diffused mostly dry. I think diffusing with gel makes my hair look crusty and I pretty much have to diffuse in winter.


Eta: oops it's sideways. How do I fix that?

when will your favs?

So last night i tried a bantu knot out on old braid out. I didn't like it. I wasn't bad just not the look I was going for. Mine never look like the ones on YT partly because a lot of them start on straightened hair. The thing is my hair takes on shapes easily with i usually love but when I take down the bantu my hair wants to stick out awkwardly. I'm prepooing for a shampoo know but I'm not ready to give up.

washed, added conditioner and combed a little eco styler gel through it then left it alone.

Had apricot oil/coconut oil with a bit of conditioner in my hair for a couple days soaking in.

Today washed with Jane Carter shampoo, forgot what it's called.
Deep conditioned in the shower with a sample of Alikay Naturals Sage and Honey w/shower cap. Rinsed.
Added some of my new AG Smooth Argan Conditioner and detangled.

For styling i squeezed out the excess water and added Apricot oil. Then in sections applied Donna Marie Dream Curling Creme, generously, adding water as I went.
Topped off with Naturalista Cosmetics Aloe-Flax Gel.

Hair is looking good so far drying..
