^^^I just tried it. I couldn't really work it through my wet hair without feeling like I was overdoing it. Ah well eventually I'll get the hang of it.

I clarified (with a sulfate shampoo because I didn't have a sulfate free clarifying shampoo available, gonna order one soon). I followed up with a deep conditioner that probably isn't very good quality. It has mineral oil high up on the list of ingredients. It also contains a PEG modified dimethicone which is water soluble plus my sulfate free shampoo contains cocamidopropyl betaine which removes cones anyway so it's not too bad. I then did an ACV rinse and moisturized with the Cantu shea butter leave in and sealed with Crisco then I put my hair into four big twists. I couldn't believe how little shedding I had. I was amazing. But I did detangle and put my hair in 16 braids before washing so I'm sure that helped. Hopefully it won't be long before I BC.

Big smile

Got my shea butter in the mail today! I got it from this site which was recommended by Curly Nikki, I think.

I tried it and it's really good. Really smooth texture, light, pleasant, nutty smell, seems fresh.

So I went to Walgreens lol. I picked up some headwraps, you know the little bands that girls use to put their hair in a puff. I also got ORS Hair Mayonnaise, Elasta QP Mango Butter, Hollywood Olive Oil Cream (with Bonus Cholesterol), Queen Helene Cholesterol conditioner, (all recommended by BlackHairScience.com), EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel Maximum Hold, Nature's Way Coconut Oil, and Shea Moisture Deep Treatment mask and some satin covered foam rollers.

I saw the Curl Custard but I didn't realize until I got back home that it was one of the items Veemack recommended. I'll get it next time I'm out. Gosh, I really do sound like a junkie. Disapprove

But I only plan on getting a few more things. Big smile

A quick transition hairstyle. It's basically a twist out. It's been 11 months so everything in the front is all natural and some of my ponytail is as well. No heat whatsoever. I'm surprised I got it to lay this flat.

beautiful hair Sweet.  it took a minute for me to realize twist outs work. i was fighting my hair for over a year until Nike said that once you stop fighting it, it become easier.  those were truest words anyone had ever said.  i simply stop working against my hair and started working with it and just like that it became easier.

SweetNovember I do not like the Hollywood olive oil collection, honestly none of their stuff. So let me know what you think about them. How much relaxer do you still have? Better question how many inches of natural hair have you grown out so far? You have pretty hair seems as though you would not have much trouble.

Let me know how you continue to like this shea butter. I have a company I order from already, but I am always looking for others to share. A good shea butter should no matter how thick, melt easily on your hands from you body heat, spread easily and a light shade of beige. Let me know how you like your pick after continued usage.

I thought they were cheap and useless too but I only bought it because it was on that one site. I haven't tried it yet. Here is the ingredient list which actually doesn't look bad at first glance:

Water, Isopropyl Myristate, Soybean Oil, Olive Oil, Stearic Acid, Stearyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Vitamin E, Matricaria Extract (Chamomile), Calendula Extract, Vitamin B, Macadamia Nut Oil, Vitamin A, Coconut Oil, Rosemary Extract, Sage Extract, Vitamin C, Great Burdock Extract, Triethanolamine, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Fragrance, FD&C Yellow No. 5, FD&C Blue No. 1.


When I try it I will let you know how it is. 
ETA: I just realized it has parabens in it. Not sure what those are but I heard they're not good. Confused

I haven't measured my new growth but the entire slicked back area is natural plus a little more. It's still mostly relaxed though.
