@ pinkecube what actually are you looking for when you say that you examine your curls after the bentonite step? I'm just trying to get a better understanding of what to look for after rinsing.

So after ur hair is completely rinsed, you are looking for signs of increased moisture retention, and strands that have max hydration. The earliest signs of moisture retention i noticed, is when you touch your roots, you will feel coils/ bumps.

The visible signs are just how much clumping you have. For example, some strands even though wet, may not clump at all. Others will clump just at the tips. Others will clump a 4th of the way up the strand, others half way up the strand, and others will clump all the way to the roots(max hydration).

 It being able to do that with no product and your hair is completely clean, just a bit wet, shows that your hair is weighing down from the inside of your hair cortex, due to retained moiture in the cortex, allowing the curl to become uniform without product.

As you begin to do this regimen, the more times you repeat the regimen, the more you will notice the clumps move up some of your hair strand. So for me each time i do my hair, i check after the bentonite clay rinse for progress.

Once the strand has clumped all the way up to the tip, you have reached max hydration. The goal is to see that progress increase all over your head, and eventually reach max hydration all over your hair strands. Some strands will get there faster than others, they don't all reach max hydration at the same time.

 You will find that at this point, your hair even if you let it dry, once it has reached max hydration the root to tip definition stays. And as you define your curls, they will pop as if you had put gel in it, when you have only applied conditioner. So basically getting definition during styling is easier.

Heres a video that demonstrates total max hydration:

Thank u pinkecube for that explanation. I am noticing some hydrated curls and some that are forming at the ends of my hair. I'm excited to see what my hair will look like once I reach max hydration. Thx for the video too.

For all of you asking how my mom felt about the cherry lola treatment. I asked her she said her hair felt thicker and the conditioner seemed to soak into her hair instantly (she did a DC after) but she says she'll need to try it again to note any improvements

pinkie also what is the reasoning behind mixing the cherry lola and caramel treatment? Is it better than just doing the original cherry lola?

It's just a modified version of the regular treatment, that combines both the caramel treatment and the cherry lola treatment together. The caramel treatment has conditioning properties, the cherry lola lifts the cuticle, and overall it also is a mild protein treatment. I found my hair felt softer when i rinsed out this version of the treatment.
