I used a deep conditioner I found at WF that I hope can provide deeper conditioner right now than what I have. Ingredients like sunflower and mango butter stood out for me.



I styled with flax seed gel. KCCC is not working in these negative dew points. My hair feels really nice.

still wearing it straight

worked out last night the back is not reverted but it's no longer straight

last night took out my ponytail and separated my hair so it could dry (it was damp from perspiration)

i mixed some tea tree oil with coconut oil and oiled my scalp in sections

applied some oscar blandi jasime oil serum and twisted four sections of my hair sealed the ends with castor oil, pinned each twist and applied the castor oil to my sweated out kitchen

took it down this morning and wore it loose
i will probably do this again tonight except for the oiling thats only for when i work out so sat sun and monday

i plan to do braid outs all weekend since it's not very straight now well not to me

and wash next weekend

Prepooed with water spritzed on dry hair, KBB conditoner, and emu oil on ends and scalp. Massaged scalp. Pooed with Loma Hydrating cream shampoo. Condition and finger detangle with KBB conditioner and Knot Today. Scrunch/smooth a mix of coffee butter and shea butter over on the ends. Cold water rinsed. Raked in Botanical Spirits Soft Curl Cream, more coffee butter/shea butter over it, then Magic Curls Puree. Squeezed out drips with Curls like us cloth. Smoothed a little emu oil on my hairline and fragile temples. Theraneem gel where needed and air dried.

I did a co-wash and go with EO vanilla citrus conditioner, left in all my detangling conditioner (Loma Daily Hydrating Reconstructor), added shea butter and caster oil, and finished with Loma Imply Molding creme. hair had a lot of weight and I thought it wouldn't shrink as much. It shrank more, just rolled up! But good clumping and little frizz, even though it snowed on me. And it feels great, not hard at all.

SBB , how are you liking your Botanical Spirits products? I bought up just about everything she has. So far I like the pudding the best.

not much, i just woke up. Last night i had a twist out and decided to see if i could get my hair straight w/o heat, so....I wet and brushed out the curl and put in ginormous scunci rollers, i guess these would be the equivalent but mine are like 5 yrs old so they upgraded.
These look a little mor comfortable to sleep in but mine arent, so i slept on my stomach. When i woke it was nearly straight except for the roots. I got want I wanted but i miss my twist out now

yes it's still straight

last night i combed to get rid of the tangles and shed hair (my roots have completely reverted in the back half)

i used a mixture of curl gel-les'c and afrovedas shea amla whipped butter about a tablespoon of the butter mixed with a quarter size amount of the gel

i applied to each section before i twisted the hair into bantu knots. i think i had too many i couldnt wear my hair down the front was crazy looking the back was curly so i pinned the top half back with a clip

i had some frizz so i ran some oscar blandi jasmine serum over those spots

i plan to finally wash my hair on saturday morning

The Kinky Coils pudding is a winner on my hair, especially with twists. The combo above was good texture wise but made my hair too hard.

Used some interesting stylers today...obvi Curl Define, but used castor oil mixed with aloe vera gel instead of my regular gels. I actually think I like it. My curls are fat and very defined. Less clumping though, and I think the oil helped tame frizz.

Bunned my hair this morning with Afroveda's PUR Whipped Gelly and a little Soft & Silky Gel Curl over it. This evening, when I came home, I co-washed with Afroveda Holy Basil Conditioner.

Well today I rinsed out this oil I had in my hair today. It made my hair really soft. Softer than it ever been. I then braided with this hair lotion that I had. It didn't work on my dry hair so I decided to use it on wet. It did make combing eaiser and it felt soft but I'll see how it works out when it dries.

I have AO Swimmer's Conditioner in my hair now and will hoepfully wake up and massage most of the knots out, rinse, blow dry on cool, go to work, come home and re-wet my hair, add a little more conditioner, and then finish detangling.

Yesterday did my weekly DT, then I did twists for a twist out then decided I wanted to rock bantu knot curls tomorrow for work so made the knots from the two strand twists and have had on a silk scarf all day.
