wow!! impressive results!!!

do you think its better to do the DC overnight? i can't do that because i work full time so i have been doing all of the steps when i get home from work. the first few pages of this post you mentioned the crunchy feeling. is there anyway to avoid it while still maintaining moisture? i know you mentioned applying a bit of oil...

Either DC or Steam/hooded dryer are the best options, mixing warm/hot water into your conditioner and letting it sit for at least 10 minutes will suffice. It will still work, but i think the other two are definitely more effective. Just know that if you are doing that option, you must do the bakingsoda step before for the best results. This will ensure your cuticle is getting lifted and absorbing the moisture in the next step. The thing i think made the most difference in this case was doing all the steps, where as last time i skipped the bentonite clay step. So this demonstrates how important it is to do all the steps, and in order.

btw guys, I noticed awhile back that when i warmed trader joes in the microwave directly, the conditioner looked lumpy in my hands. I wasn't able to edit that in the first post, though.  So if you want to warm the conditioner, you have to warm water(or tea) separately and then add it. The conditioner going directly into the microwave does something weird to the consistency, makes it coagulate and look lumpy. I also think some of the water from the conditioner evaporates during that process. So since we're watering down the conditioner anyway, just warm the water (or tea) separately and pour it in after. That will get you the best results. Sorry i forgot to mention that.

I don't warm my conditioner in the leave in step, but it certainly is a good option to try. Just make sure you do it the way above or your hair can dry white and flaky.

@iheartsmimi thanks for sharing your technique of doing it in the evening I might try doing that on days that my mornings are busy and resort to doing the overnight thing during the weekends when I have more time.

Thanks msdeekay and pinke!

As far warming the conditioner in the microwave, I've had success using the original formulation of the conditioner (not the watered down version) and I only heat it up for 6-8 seconds. It seems to work fine. I tried heating up a watered down version of KCKT and it was a mess. LOL

Yeah, for the watered down version it's best to warm the water only and then pour it in. Then the conditioner gets warmed once the warm water gets mixed in, instead of warming it together which makes it lumpy. Kwicherbichen actually made tea and just poured it in. That way the consistency doesn't get messed up. I found with the teatree tingle, watered down or not it was lumpy. But this problem doesn't occur heating the water first.

Hi Ladies,
I have been following the post from the sidelines and am finally going to take the plunge!
I am currently in the midst of taking down some box braids and would like to know which steps to follow after I thoroughly detangle. Would I follow the entire steps or concentrate more on the cherry Lola/caramel treatment?

Oops! I should have also included that I am a fine haired natural with a mixture of 4b/c texture.

The conditioners that I have in my stash currently is the trader Joes tea tree tingle and the moisturizing line along with elucence moisturizing conditioner.

I also have both the Bragg's liquid amino and coconut amino for the cherry Lola treatment.... has anyone found that they achieve netter results with the Bragg's versus any other liquid amino?

I am eager to see my curls pop!
