Juan mos, sorry about the GHE issues. For the fast all in one go version, what about trying bakingsoda rinse before the clay and see if that changes. Otherwise, maybe you can try this way of splitting the regimen-- at least on days you don't have enough time. Do step 1 clarify, and then step 2 Steam at night. And wear a silk scarf, and put a little oil. Then in the morning just complete the cowash step and rinse out and detangle.

Hi - Pinke can  you clarify something for me? The 'shortened' version listed on page 127, in particular VERSION 2, can this be done at any stage of MHM? For me, I've currently done the full original MHM method from page 72 now, a total of 7 complete times.  Can I alternate the revised method VERSION 2 at this point, when I need to save time and don't have all day to do my hair? Or should I wait until my hair is at a certain stage of hydration to start the shorter methods?


One thing to remember is DanaBNatural already has total max hydration. She's done wash and go's daily for 8 months prior to this(although she wasn't doing this method the whole time, but it still contributes). And even then, she still DC's. I think in one of her recent videos, that she said she DC's overnight and does the simple cowash and gel in the morning, so she doesn't sleep in the wash and go. I don't know if that has changed since, but I will find the video. So you may find yourself alternating, between this and a version that includes steaming. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is just starting. You need to incorporate some steam or DC somewhere, it really helps, especially if you are just starting out. I may wait until your 14 regimen repeat to really do that more often. I would even say wait until you start seeing significant signs of max hydration. Like your product free hair is curling from root to tip now, in like 30% of your hair at least. But there's never going to be a time where you just do those steps exclusively, even when you get max hydration you want to incorporate DC.

I'm not sure how to do it other than clicking quote. Do you mean when you try to quote it says, access denied? Maybe just click quote, copy what's there, then go back and click reply and paste it. Other than that, you can just paste these HTML tags: (QUOTE=profile name) The text would be pasted here between. (/QUOTE) by the way instead or paranthesis, you would uses brackets like this [ ]. I used these ( ) so it wouldn't format it automatically. A tip about the access denied, just copy what ever you say before clicking post reply, that way you don't have to type it all over again.

WOW!!! Thanks Pinkecube. I watched all four videos. I truly appreciate you posting them for me. I clearly saw the difference in the two.. If only my hair would soak up conditioner like Mahoganycurls. No wonder she doesn't have any frizz. Her hair is so moisturized is isn't funny.. Anywho, it is what it is and I am working with what I have.. It all makes so much sense now since the MHM method. Well, Im about to do the condensed version which reminds me, thank you for taking the time and putting together all the steps to each regimen that included all the different options for the MHM method!. Its a tremendous help.
Your welcome, ableonard Smile I'm glad the summary and the video links helped! Yes, let's work with what we have, you'll be pleasantly surprised how moisturized our hair can get as well!

Hi tvsnatural, welcome to the forum and MHM! I think the detangling issue might be due to doing the clarfiying side by side. So basically the longer version is going to be more moisturizing, since some form of Deep conditioning or steaming is in between the clarifying steps. Your hair may feel softer because of DC. I don't think that in the shortened regimen there is really a difference whether you do bakingsoda or clay first, really. But if you were doing the acv option it would be important to do acv first.

Here is a new alternative mixture for bakingsoda step, for those of you who want to save conditioner.

Alternate MHM Baking soda mixture


o 2 tablespoons bakingsoda
o 2 tablespoons honey
o 1 teaspoon olive oil
