Something's gotta give. I need to get a regiment together and stick to it. I'm ready for big hair.

Your curls are pretty  Njoy. They look  3c to 4a in your photo.  My 4c texlaxed house mate as failed horribly at growing any hair for years. So I am taking over daily oiling, m/s, detangling, care to see if my hands can do any better job of it. I honestly believe so. The previous routine included a lot of rough handling and leaving the hair knotted and not smoothed, then covering it knotted and matted. I use the dollar store Lusti Organics olive oil detangling spray nightly, then oil it and brush it into a smooth top knot. Then cover it with a spandex wig cap for sleep. This straightens even the 4c new growth quite a bit. So I detangle by  applying the mist of detangling spray, pick it with vent brush to ease out the tangles, then large tooth comb, then oil and finally I can even comb through with a fairly small tooth comb and bristle brush very smoothly even on the 4c new growth! Apply coconut oil or argan oil. Then brush it into a top knot with bristle brush and cover with spandex cap to sleep..Will be working on adding protective shower cap to avoid reversion in morning to their routine along with the nightly m/s, oiling. stretching and protective styling top knot on 4" semi natural 4c hair. So far their 4c  hair feels and looks a lot better in just the few days that I took it over than the previous few years. I will be orchestrating a 4 month stretch if not transition to natural. I am CONFIDENT I can grow their hair better than they could by caring for it personally. LOL

PS They think genetics plays a big role in hair growth. I disagree bc according to tracking ng length between touchups, they have grown hair at the same rate I have. I have just RETAINED most of mine while their rough, trifling handling resulted in ripping out a lot daily with poor detangling skills. Even more was rubbed or torn off by poor to no protective styling handling and very shoddy m/s oiling care. Furthermore, they used NO smoothing/stretching techniques in between texlaxing which exacerbated the cycle of tearing out and rubbing off the hair daily faster than it growth. I detngle their hair daily with zero hair loss while they ripped out hands full daily. I start with a vent brush and work down progressively to smaller tooth combs and a bristle brush for final smoothing/ stretching. I then smooth it and stretch it straighter and cover it with a protective spandex wig cap after oiling.  So wish me luck growing someone else's 4c/z hair now too Wink

OK so now down to technique. I plan to use this technique for edge control and divide the hair into 4 ponytails on the top of the head  brushing with a bristle brush then stretching it into 4 ponytails on top the head
 
I will use this edge control technique around each of the 4 ponytails so they look straight at the roots when brushed with a bristle brush into ponytails. So I will be applying this edge control concoction not just around the front hairline but around all partings all through the head to SMOOTH ALL the new growth and keep it so for at least a week or 2. There will be daily oilings with moisturizing oil like coconut or argan oil but no wetting for reversion or hygral fatigue.
Will look for Gorilla Snot and Edge Control or Curls Passion Fruit Control Paste today. Will also look for ponytail holders with no metal.
Then I will twist each pony tail into a smoothed bantu knot and roll down the spandex wig cap on the head of 4 top knot ponytails with SMOOTH bantu buns. Hair will be protected this way for a week using shower caps to prevent reversion in shower and spandex wig cap at all other times. Then.  nightly spray of melted coconut oil, argan oil or olive oil.  Perhaps loosen the top knots and rebrush them smoother occasionally. But the key to this 4z regimen will be to keep the hair stretched as smooth as possible, oiled nightly and covered with a spandex wig cap for a week at a time. The brushing the scalp with the bristle brush and oiling with no wetting will stimulate the scalp. While keeping the hair stretched straight will facilitate ease of detangling with minimal hair ripped out daily.
 
Weekly deep conditioners under the dryer will include proteins and deep conditioners. I believe protein sensitivity to be a false myth about hair which IS protein. Their avoiding protein for years has resulted in horrible hairloss constantly. BUT protein treatments will always accompany lubricating moisturizing dcs also as well as LOC treatment on wash day.

OMG !!!!

I just realized I have been off my Vitamin/Supplement game for over a month, and I have not washed my hair for 2 weeks    
I have wet it while showering and spritzed, detangled and moisturized when needed, but not washed and conditioned.

Looking at it, I may need a Henna color this weekend, so I may have to go hard core with hair care sometime within the next 2 days.

Here is to hoping there is not too much "shedding"
