Thanks for the compliment and the details!
One more question-- do you section your hair to smooth the products in, or just do the outisde of your hair and then the underside, or something else?
It sounds like a quicker way to apply products. I usually detangle in the shower, and then pretty much am detangling again as I am raking the product in.
ETA: I just looked at your album and I love your hair too! It looks so well-behaved and the curls are so uniform.
