What do you apply under the shea butter/olive oil mix?

Keeping in mind that everyone's hair responds differently and has different needs, I layer my products on damp-to-slightly wet hair to maintain moisture and reapply as needed on about the 2nd or 3rd day after washing or cowashing. I apply a spray leave-in, then a creamy leave-in, then moisturizer, then seal with oil. The spray leave-in I use the most, the other I apply sparingly. I plan to modify the amounts as my new hair grows, but this method is working great.

I also cowash midweek and wash and deep condition on the weekend. Cowashing is "washing" the hair with conditioner only. I use Trader Joe's TTT or Nature's Gate Biotin conditioners to cowash.

Hope this helps!
