WOW thanks aharri23 that would be awesome. I actually noticed that it gets more easier the more you do it and more hydrated your hair is. I dont do the whole regimen at one go but that's just me, cause I love splitting the regimen in the morning routine and night routine. I already got that rhythm down lol and also because I do it everyday and I also love the over night conditioning/GHE step. I feel like my hair has been responding better that way since I don't have a steamer. But that's just me.

But lately I've noticed that as my hair is getting more hydrated it takes product really easily which means I get to do everything in the shower really quick in big sections, including the clay and leave in and gel part. Which makes it go really quick.
Msdeekay, do you mean you apply or just rinse out the clay in the shower? Are you applying the leave in under the shower stream? If so, do you still water it down? I too split up the process, but my scalp is itching more and more as it's not getting fully dry...going on three weeks almost now ):

Hey Elsie Jay, Pink is the PRO at decoding product ingredients, so hopefully she will pass by today or tomorrow and analyze the products for youWink ...and you'll be able to find something that is affordable and available locally to you.

Thanks, I hope so. It would be really nice to find some appropriate decent and cheap conditioners that can be bought locally in the UK. There must be some out there somewhere.

I also had that question about applying conditioner under the shower stream. I wasn't sure if the conditioner was suppose to be full strength. Why apply it under the water?

Even if you don't do acv for step 1 you may want to try doing a quick scalp wash with it to try to reneutralize your scalp. I do this when I do an overnight DC to calm my scalp down.

Hey everyone!

I'm loving the sharing of advice & tips from everyone. The two I've picked up so far are:

- using conditioner full strength at leave-in stage
I tested that this morning with full strength KCKT under gel and noticed my hair dried with less shrinkage. Gonna keep experimenting with that for the rest of the week

- using less oil at Clay stage 
I've noticed that the amazing definition I get at that stage disappears once I rinse the clay out. I may try using little to no oil at all to see if it makes a difference. I'll experiment with that next week

Thanks to the ladies who raised the questions and made the recommendations (forgive me for not trawling through the last 20 pages right now, but I will holla at you sometime soon. :)

GHE looks like a no-no for me right now as I woke up 4hrs into my mhm hair beauty sleep (lol!) scratching like crazy, so I'm going to eliminate that from my regime unfortunately (my hair loves it though)...

However, I was sitting watching the Commonwealth Games tonight and just took some random pics of my hair now that it's 100% dry. I've still got a long way to go with the overall look, but I couldn't help but share this pic of my roots... And the start of the coils at the crown of my head - normally the most coarsest section of my hair. (Sorry for the humongous pic)

So so happy!Smile

Thanks everyone for sharing, contributing and helping with my journey and I'm sure everyone else!

Lol, aharri. What's amusing to me is that some of them have so much time to troll that forum and complain yet they have no time to do their hair. Priorities ladies, priorities.LOL  But on a serious note, the regimen does not take that long for me either. I can't believe I just did the whole regimen and a twist out within 30 minutes a few days ago. Unfortunately I now remember why I said I was going to master the wash and go this year...my twists took way to long to dry D: However, I'm so happy they didn't have white gunk on them like they used to, so I just put them in a bun. 

Speaking of twists, I believe there was a person who said they were having difficulty keeping their twists staying twisted at the ends. A good solution to that is to use more product there, and coil the twists several times around your finger to set the end of the twist. Always works like a charm for me, hth.

Nice results DesiBbUK! I have been using my leave-in at full strength too and have noticed nice results. I still water it down when it comes to the DC step though.
I also feel like I'm the only one who uses tons of oil on the clay step. xD I pour a whole lot in there, but it adds nice slip to the clay step imo.

Hey ladies and gents!

So, I'm playing with my hair today and finding loads of single strand knots. I've never had this issue before and as I am newly natural, I'd appreciate any help I can get, please. Could there be something I am not doing/doing wrong when I MHM?

TIA.

Are you eyeing the ingredients when you're mixing them up or are attempting to measure the ingredients exactly? Each step in this method has it's own purpose..so being exact is important or else you would get different results.  

And post what method you follow since their several..the original and modified. Are you using baking soda or acv...deep conditioning over night or are you steaming for 30...what products are you using? Have you tried using different methods?

Hey, I figured out the scratching thing.

#1 - use brand new plastic caps every night
#2 - before you start GHE again, use garlic oil + tea tree oil on your scalp every night and use it every time you feel the itch
#3 - do this until your scalp is no longer itching then try GHE with your hair ABSOLUTELY DRY

I made a video about my realization here:

Wanted to note that I am now doing full MHM only once a week and am playing/experimenting with my own version of mini-MHM during the week.

Used tresemme naturals in my warm deep conditioning step today and my hair is INCREDIBLY soft now that I have washed out my clay mask. My hair is usually only this soft only after the conditioner step, not the mask step. Very excited.

So I am going to try a new thing. I have grown 1 inch in 1 month which is un-heard of for me. I believe part of what has helped me do this is the fact that I twist my hair at night and wrap the ends around a bobby pin so there is NO CHANCE for my hair to tangle itself.

I am going to do MHM every weekend and then plait my hair in flat twists and start wearing a wig. Remove the wig for sleep, working out, and weekly MHM treatment. We'll see what happens :)
