I like the DENMAN cause it really removes all the loose/shed hair but you still have to be careful and take your time in some areas.

I found that its really damaging to not remove all the shed hair every now and then and the DENMAN has a billion teeth that grabs all the hair.

I can't find any of the "cloth covered" ones but I think ur talking about scunchi kind?

I got braids tonight and hope to have them at least for 30 days. I'll be using that DENMAN my first conditioning after my braid out.

Well...I did use a denman type yesterday in the shower. After I detangled...and really to just get the shed hair. My hair looked nice last night. Now today I guess will be the test I'll see I'd I'm any less tangled today than before.

Back on Cones,so now my routine is,wash with Deva No-Poo every other day or so. Occasionally use 365 sulfate free,maybe use low sulfate shampoo mixed with conditioner once every two weeks are longer. I condition with Aussie Moist or HEHH. I style with a little GF TN,and finish up with tons of GN Pure Clean Smoothing Cream. No frizz...slippy, happy hair.

Princeton, by "cloth covered" I meant the rubber elastics that have some kind of stretchy covering/coating on them - I don't know how to describe that, lol! Sometimes they have a metal bit in them, you have to avoid those as the metal breaks the hair. They are readily available, you can find them in any drugstore. So no, not scrunchies ;p you can also use the small silicone ones that people use for their braces (as in teeth) they are very slippery and won't stick in the hair...

And Goddesscurls, I hope the Denman helped you I do find since using it I have less frizz, less knots and less tangles. I think it is the removal of the shed hair that has that effect - there are no loose hairs trapping themselves in your curls and coils it seems also to put every stray hair back into the clump it belongs in, if that makes sense...?

Princeton, your hair looks great!

I'm back on 'cones, too. Sigh. (I can quit anytime I want!) I haven't used an SLS, ALS cleanser in years, but even when I don't use silicones, I do need to use a clarifying cleanser once a month. I've noticed that when it's super dry, and low dew point temperatures, 'cones really help my hair, but glycerin can dry it out. Amodimethicone doesn't seem to bother my hair at all, and dimethicone isn't too bad. I have to be careful with the "cyclo" ones, for some reason.

Did you use a silicone styler in your braids? Silicone products seem so light to me, I don't think they would hold braids or twists in my hair. I wonder if they're going to help with detangling when you take out your braids...Keep us posted.

GoddessCurls - I used a Denman for years before I found CG, etc. It's way way better than those "vent" brush things or regular bristle hair brushes that only tear your hair out. Now I'm stuck on my Ouidad comb. The other day my hair was so tangled I wanted to see if a brush would make any difference in how long it was going to take to untangle. I looked for my Denman, and I found out one of my sons stole it and took it to college with him. (That brush is older than he is!). So I tried to use a hairbrush I use for my daughter, called the "Wet" Brush. It works great on my 4 year old daughter, but it was no match for my hair. If the Denman is too much for your hair you may want to try the "Wet" brush. It doesn't look like much, but it completely detangles my daughter's wet hair, easily and gently. It weighs way less than the Ouidad comb or the Denman, too, so your arm won't get numb trying to get knots out of your hair.

Thanks!!!
No, I just used virgin coconut oil and then got it braided. About an hour before she started I put the coconut oil in the microwave and then worked it into my hair. I hated that I had to comb out all my curls lol but at least I can go a while without having to worry that much about my hair

Princeton, you are lucky to have the option of braids - they look great, too

Goddess, I use Catwalk curlesque leave-in - it has 'cones and paraben and also is mineral oil based, my hair seems to really like it...

I used to use that Cantu 2 years ago but stopped because it had cones. It used to build up daily. Now that I'll be shampooing more often then I might retry it but I do recall having major issues with anything that contained protein while using cones.

Keeping the ends of my braids conditioned every day and sealing with coconut oil so that they are not dry and fragile when I take them out next month.

I've been misting the top with Energizer Follicle Stimulater that has Jojoba oil, vitamin B5, and other natural herbs. Then wearing my durag all day. I don't plan on having my curls out again until Spring 2013.

Well, I tried the HE Honey I'm Strong, and followed it with HETT. OMG. I think I am gonna be seriously addicted...lol! I did read elsewhere on the forum someone calling HE HIS a kind of crack, lol! So easy to detangle. And my hair is actually holding its shape, and has a bit of bounce. Hopefully this isn't a one-night fling with HIS, and that it keeps punching in.

Thanks for the enablement, Princeton! my hair and I are grateful.
