Thanks, I am trying really hard to find more protective styles. But that shine I will contribute to ACV rinsing. Im not big on using a particular product so to speak but I prepoo with shikaiki/alma powder mixed with suave coconut condition (trying to get rid of them and to lift my cuticle). I poo & condition with AOGPB (not rinsing completely, use as a leave as well). As i final rinse, i use about 2 tbs of ACV to 2 cups of water. pour over my head and spritz a few times with glycerin/water mix, rub a little shea butter on my ends, knot and let it air dry. In the morning, that is what I had.
