I detangle my hair as I apply the conditioner using this technique:
I rinse the conditioner out with the twist still in my hair. I squeeze the twists to make sure the water is getting through the twists and to make sure the product is getting out of my hair (yes some of the twists loosen). When it’s all rinsed out I apply Deep Conditioner.
Day 5 Braid Out
I have 3 deep conditioners that I use. Most often I used the Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque. Sometimes I use the Organic Root Stimulator Hair Mayonnaise. And on a few occasions I use the Organix Coconut Repair Deep Treatment. I usually leave my deep Conditioner in my hair for a few hours (Sometimes overnight). Leaving my deep conditioner in for more then 3 hours leaves my hair uber soft!
I rinse out the deep conditioner, loosen the twists, and then I Moisturize and Pamper my hair. This video shows you how I apply the following products to my hair.
I untwist the next mornin and I Retwist/braid/flat twist my hair at night to preserve the curl pattern. If I don’t have time to reset my hair I will put my hair in Mini Pineapples.
I Cowash my hair using any of my many conditioners using this technique.
After I cowash, I Moisturize and Pamper my hair the same way that I do on Saturdays. After all products have been applied I will set my hair in one of the sets listed above (Two Strand Twists, Braids, or Flat Twists) like I do on Saturdays.
I give my hair so much LOVE and my growth shows the LOVE and time I’ve given my hair.
