I saw this lady on YT recently talk about how she put conditioner in her hair BEFORE she got in the shower to wash it.... I had read about this in the 2nd Curly Girl book and blew it off...cause I have high porosity hair..

Well I decided to try it.. wow..it really works well for detangling to put the conditioner in before you wet your hair.

I can't do the leaving conditioner in with the baggy and all that though.. my scalp will act a damn fool. It likes to breathe.

Even if I don't continue with this WHOLE process, this detangling part will remain a staple in my routine.
But I don't baggy over my whole head. I put my hair up in a high bun and baggy over the bun. This way my roots get stretched out and once I take the baggy off in the morning my curls are clumped together really nicely.

BTW: Last night when I started over I mixed the Tresemme Smooth&Silky with Suave Coco, some coconut oil and some almond oil and NO MORE FLAKES thanks for the tip @greenandchic
