what do you band with?  and do you find it more effective to stretch your hair through banding than by braiding? 

I wanna know your thoughts on this also.

Great hair and so long!!!  Bravo!

You and I have the exact same camera, lol

I've started washing "celie" style for about 6-8 months and IA the amount and hair loss is minimal and hardly any tangling.  I'm not ever going to wash "loose" again--unless I cut back to a TWA.


What's up with the salt?

OMG, ladies, I appreciate your luv soo much!!

Sleek-
Girl, I'm not tripping.  I told you I'm a laid back kinda girl :)

Now let's see if I can remember the questions...

SALT-
It makes my hair soooo soft!

I tried it after one of my henna tx's left me with hard hair.  None of my moisturizing DC's were working.  I even went to the store at midnight on an emergency run for 3 different moisturizing DCs..they all failed!  Somebody bumped up a couple of salt threads and I figured I had nothing to lose.  It has been a staple ever since (almost 3 years).

The key is to use just a small amount.  I don't use any more than 1.5 tsp in my DC mix.

I've used both sea salt and iodized salt with the same results.  I just use sea salt cause I bought so much.


BANDING-
 
I use cut up nylon/stocking legs to band.  I prefer leggs silk somethingoranother b/c they're really soft.    Banding definitely stretches my hair more than braids or twists.  Both braids and twists shrink in my hair.  The bands provide constant tension and keep the hair from shrinking back up as it dries.  I moisturize and seal before banding. My hair turns out really soft once I take them down.

When I initially band (after washing) I do about 6-8 bands.  When I'm doing nightly upkeep (on dry hair), I spritz with moisturizing spray, seal and then band in 2-3 sections.  I hope this all makes sense! :)

HAIR TYPE-
If you frequent here, you know I don't participate in the typing.  Once I started focusing on hair texture, I was able to learn so much more about my hair from ladies with different curl patterns (hair types).  My hair texture (which focuses more on the characteristics of the hair strands) is fine and cottony with normal porosity (not high or low).

Whew! I hope that covered it all :)
