I would do it every time you press unless you press every week. Her press lasted two weeks. Now I am going to cowash with the braggs in our conditioner and sit her under the dryer for 15 minutes (with plastic cap), then I will flat twist it for the last two weeks in the month. I am still deep conditioning to avoid dryness. Honestly, the braggs helped her hair a lot, it was shiny and soft the entire time. I could have left it straight for another week and just did a braid out before washing it, but I like to deep condition at least every 2 weeks.

Its the braggs amino seasoning. It can be used for food, hair, and nails...

Amino acids make up polypeptides. Polypeptides make up proteins.

I used Bragg Liquid Aminos too and it helped me a lot also! I only flat ironed after it one time. The other times I just mixed it in yogurt like Cherry Lola or mixed it in conditioners. I just added some Bragg Liquid Aminos to all my bottles of conditioners for a while last year. It helps a LOT with tangling and actually helps to make the hair stronger.  So now Bragg Liquid Aminos is a regular part of my hair regimen for the past year. I notice when I stop using it for a minute, the tangles mess with me more. Thanks for reminding me of this. I guess had been wanting to try it mixed in a leave in too!  And yes the silk aminos from lotioncrafter would work too. Probably would be better for a leave in so you don't smell like soy sauce LOL

A good idea for a leave in is some silk aminos, and aloe vera and some oil. You could add vegetable glycerine too i you are not using heat that time. 

It has made going natural a LOT easier in general.
