    That's basically my regimen too...The only difference is I don't use juice, I use A liquid moisturizer by mane choice. Oh, and I do low manipulation (small twist) instead of 100% protective styling.

    Trying to justify another KindredButters order. I need to see what's in my stash then go from there. I think I could use another green tea DC and the leave in.

    @PJaye and @IDareT'sHair, Hi ladies! Do any of the cleaning conditioners you both use lather? If so, which ones? Thank you!

    No, the ones I use don't lather and I prefer it that way (for me, lather = stripped and tangled). The only cleanser I can recall that has a lather is the CRN Ginger Rinse, but be careful with that one because it's Defcon 2 with respect to stripping. If you want mild cleansing with a lather, try Silk Dreams Go Moist Shampoo, African Pride Shea Butter Shampoo or Profectiv Neutralizing Mousse. While they're not cleansing conditioners, they will clean the hair and leave it soft and moist. OK, that was an unnecessarily long-winded reply, so I'll stop now.

    Thanks so much for replying @PJaye! That CRN Sweet Ginger stripped and tangled the living daylights out of my hair! I’ll try those you recommend. Thanks again!

    Anytime; I'm glad I could help. FWIW, the Profectiv Mousse is a magical unicorn.

    I don’t know why but their marketing bugs me. I have formed an unreasonable dislike for them.

    She gets so hype about the juiciness-factor of her twist out. It's cute! LOL.

    :look: Maybe I need to try mousse over cream.

    This is the least overwhelmed I have EVER been about my natural hair. My hair is starting to "run my life" less. This just now hit. :smile:

    :meditate:

    Thank you for all of the help and encouragement. Wow. I almost can't believe I'm here at this stage. :smile: So very grateful.

    My mama called me an old lady yesterday after she seen my daily vitamins. Oddly enough since beginning them; I feel awesome and better then I've felt in years. My energy is up and my skin/hair appears to be flourishing. If this is what being an old lady feels like then sign me up sugar **flips flourishing hair** :lachen:.

    @trueheartofgold
    Sorry Sis:kiss: - I just saw this. Like @PJaye I prefer mine not to lather, but to cleanse without stripping.

    There are a lot of great ones out there that will do a great job without stripping. Hairveda Amla Cleanse is a good one.

    Here are some I really like (in no particular order):
    Hairveda Amla Cleanse
    Hydroquench Systems
    Curl Junkie Daily Fix
    Annabelle's Perfect Blends
    JMonique's Coconut Cowash
    KeraVada HydroMax
    Alikay Naturals Coconut Cleanse Me
    Deva Curl No Poo
    Bel Nouvo Mint Detox Cleanser

    ETA: I just bought Oyin's Ginger Mint Cleansing Conditioner - have not tried it yet tho'.

    Sitting under my steamer today and it's it as uncomfortable as it use to be. My relaxer hair was thin so it felt like my scalp was on fire. My natural hair is so much thicker so I am sitting pretty with my Joico Moisture balm mixed with honey right now.

    I know in my brain that these heat damaged strands I just found can't be made curly again, but somehow my heart is still holding out hope that a protein conditioner will fix it. :cry3:

    Does heat damage make your hair feel silky smooth? The parts of my hair that are still straight feel like they've been flat ironed even though I air dried my hair.
