i've tried it this weekend with my D/C, and decided to add a spoonful to my big container of daily moisturizer.
2 days after co-washing and D/C routine (including moisturizing shampoo afterwards), my 4c fine hair is still soft. This is not an easy task in NM. Usually once the hair dries, it's kind of hard.
As for the monthly. I started using a teaspoonful in my green tea every morning, the week before. I have extremely severe cramps, and heavy bleeding. Strange, on the first day, i didn't have any pain. But of course, the second day, yep, it showed up with a vengeance. But the period wasn't as "heavy".
i'm also taking the pills for the iron, and potassium content. When that time of the month comes around, it really takes a lot of minerals out of the system.
Thanks for this thread, OP. ya learn something new everyday. Looks like ladies are teaching this old dawg some new tricks.
