So i tried it again and still not as good. I get a lot less definiton with this method. A lot more fuzz and frizz with this version. So my question is in method #2 instead of doing the clay first then baking soda can i do the baking soda first then clay. Just basically the same as the long version just taking out the DC.  Also i would really love to see some pics of some set styles i.e. twist outs, braid outs, and bantu knot outs.
TIA
I tried "mini-MHM" and agree you need to be pretty hydrated before you can get away with it. I was fine on day 1 of doing it that way, but it went downhill from there, lol. Unless you're also saving the cowash between the BS and clay until after the two rinses, your described option is the original MHM, isn't it? Unless I'm missing something. Embarrassed



Yes, I was wondering why the clay has to go before the baking soda in version two and if it would be ok to do the baking soda first, clay, co wash, then leave in and gel. Just basically the original version minus the deep conditioning.


Not saying you couldn't do it but the baking soda is used to open the cuticle for the conditioner. I don't think there would be a need to open the cuticle for the clay. Not sure if the clay would be as effective before the conditioner as the baking soda.

Ok I get it. Wonder what my results would be if I omit the clay as well. I think that is how danabnatural does her co wash during the week. Thanks for your response.

I'm putting my hair in two 'pineapples' or puffs and sleeping with a silk scarf. I refresh with water in the morning and for each day between washes. This seems to work really well. My hair doesn't all hang down yet, although it's much better and I actually have movement in it when dry. Thus, when I've tried the roll, pin, and tuck night routine, it turns out into a fro on my hair. I hope this helps.

I cant seem to post a reply to other threads....so hopefully it shows up here.

Hi guys, 
Check out drugstore.com for the approved conditioner. It's $6.39 per bottle and standard shipping is $5.99.
The ingredients match what Dee posted.

It's out of stock on there...I hope someone tries buying it from walmart so we can see if they sell the approved version online. I will try once I run out of my 6 bottles. (currently about halfway through the first bottle and its been 2-3 weeks.) They will probably take one month to use per bottle

Any slow hydrators here or that are lurking? By slow I mean its been over two months and your curls aren't defined past the mud step.

I'm going to try the regular Cherry Lola Treatment in a couple of weeks before I start; I'm waiting to use up some of the products I have that are almost gone.


Hi secret_karma, welcome to the thread.

I think I'm going to put myself on the slow hydration list. It has been a lil over two months. I do have done defined curls but still alot of frizz and not any curls really at the root and about a inch or two down it, then the curls come. Starting to wonder if my hair Is able to clump. I think I have done the regimen over 30 times already. My hair still is in a much better place but it seems like everyone else is going a lot faster.
