I use a 50/50 olive oil and water mist as a sealer. It's hard to overdo.

That's so funny; I just cut bangs. Sort of.

Since I started doing CG, my absolutely best curl was always the one that went straight down the center of my forehead. I could pin it back or slick...

I'm lo-po but damaged; it's tricky. It's not as easy as "oh, the damaged hair is high porosity now." No, no, no. I was applying a ton of product to soaking wet hair before--as is generally a good...

I tend to cut when I get really fed up with it, and that's usually like second or third day after washing. So it's dry, and it has whatever product has accumulated in it over time.

I brush it (I...

My working theory is that I never bothered to straighten that part of my hair and it is less damaged than the rest of my hair. If only we'd discovered CG sooner!![/QUOTE]

I think he's full of it.

Coconut oil isn't for everyone--my hair doesn't like it--but there's no reason to condemn it out of hand. So many people are obviously seeing real benefits from using it....

I have done this before, but not overnight. I can't imagine how I would be able to sleep with clips in my hair. It works well but it's incredibly time-consuming and labor intensive.

Currently, if...

Minimal product + towel-dried hair=best hair day to date and bonus of shorter drying time. I *must* be low-porosity after all. Figuring that out has been my watershed moment in this whole CG...

Some with lo-po hair find that it doesn't work too well to apply product to soaking wet hair. When it's that saturated with water, it can't absorb anything else, and so the product just sits there...

PS For a homemade DT you can use just plain, warmed-up olive oil. It won't work if you've got build-up, though.
