I'm new & will pop in a few times a week.
I will be watching closely.
i went 10mos last year. I couldn't go longer my natural hair grabbed the relaxed hair & wouldn't let go
The tangling... whooo! I relaxed Christmas trimmed the thin ends 2
inches... I was at the top of my bra. It has been 6 mos. I swore then I
would go only 6 mos without my hit of "creamy crack"
.... my hair seem thicker w/o the crack hits..?
I go about 4 to 6 week without washing & re rowing. ( I went 8 weeks once that was a nightmare!
My trick to the tangles? I take my cornrows down I comb. I place 4 balls
then next day I comb more shedding. The third day the shedding is
almost gone.... to be safe I comb thru again. when I wash I don't get
tangles. If i don't comb & re-comb... I will have major tangles.
When I went 12 weeks. It took 3 hrs to comb & blow it. I had to cut
tangle balls out... but it was in the top so I can hide it.
I have my hair braided in cornrows in a circle & the ends are sewed down at the crown.
I pre poo at 4 weeks w the wig cap on. I rub the conditioner in between
the rows then rinse.( saw it on youtube)I dry by squeezing a big towel
on my head.... sometimes I will tie it down w a doo rag & sit under
the hooded dryer..... The next day or hours later the rows are tighter
.... I switch to a fresh wig cap.
I'll join in Jan.
