Actually that is not bad dear. Just be sure to keep is moisturized, Shea butter is great for that. Wear it in protectie styles also. You should consider taking Biotin. It works well. This is a great review on Biotin from youtube. You should check it out and see what you think about taking it. Good info in that video. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dNlQjN2aBE0
Shes also doing updates so you can see how its working so you can get a good idea if you want to start on the Biotin. Dont be frustrated, just take care and it will grow:)

i'd pay that much for something that had that but was emu oil/jojoba oil based with high end stuff like black seed oil and sesame oil and soy oil etc etc, but i have the ingredients of that oil blend already all at home

Good tips!

I live in cornrows/braids and your regi doesn't sound too bad to me.  Here are some things I do that maybe you can incorporate to help with retention:

-Keep your cornrows covered, it helps with moisture retention.
At home I rock a satin mens skull cap over my cornrows.  When I leave out I either put a wig, hat or headwrap over it.  Wearing the skull cap also helps to keep me from playing in my hair too much.

-Keep your hair stretched.
Wash, DC, dry and moisturize and seal in those cornrows.  Don't worry, your hair will be clean:)  This will also help to cut down on long, painful detangling sessions.  I don't allow it to shrink up when it's wet and it's dry when I refresh the cornrows or change it to another braid style.  It's also already clean and conditioned.

-Increase your DCing
I DC weekly.  You can add honey and EVOO to help with moisture or a few spoonfuls of yogurt, mayo or an egg to add some protein, since you want to keep it natural. 

-Increase your M&Sing
Like you, I use a water/oil mix to moisturize.  However, I seal afterwards with a little EVOO or Grapeseed oil.  During the colder months, I also like to incorporate Safflower oil for sealing.  I moisturize and seal twice per day - once in the morning and again before bed.  I immediately cover with my satin skull cap.  I also cowash or water rinse my hair in between my weekly wash and DC session.  Another way I moisturize is by rubbing in some of my condish and then sealing that in with an oil. 

I hope that you've found these tips to be helpful.  GL! :)

It would be better if you gave actual information or advice on haircare instead of just advertising your product. A lot of people do that on these forms, nothing new, but gets annoying.

But $20 for some simple olive oil mixture? 

Not the time or place to be posting ads.
