:yep: Nice thread, my turn!

Hair Type: 4a/3c

Hair Length: Longest hair hitting APL (Reached my goal ! :grin: June 2009), going for full APL by October

1. Presoak hair in Virgin Coconut Oil ngiht before
2. One hour before wash, coat hair in regular Mayonnaise
3. Rinse hair thoroughly with water for 5-10min

1. Instead of conditioning hair with mayo, I apply a Henna mix I buy at the Indian store, it helps nourish my hair, stop hair breakage, encourage growth and makes hair more managable :yep:

Protective Style of choice:
1. Buns. Even when I wear my hair out or down, it always ends up back in a bun by the end of the day :spinning: it's fun to watch my bun get bigger!

Hair type- 3b/c
Length- Slightly layered with longest layer at WL

I change my regimen all the time, but right now all I'm doing is as follows :

pre-poo with garlic oil
wash with HE LTR shampoo
condish with Dove Damage THerapy conditioner while detangling in shower
apply PC before rinsing condish out
then air dry loose using Lustrasilk Shea Butter Cholesterol Plus and seal with either almond oil or coconut oil.

I do that once a week and that's been pretty much it. I will apply a little more oil or some LTR leave in during the week if my hair feels a little dry, but for the past 6 weeks, that's all I've been doing. Oh, I relax with Silk Elements Megasilk Regular strength every 3 months and I color my hair with Sebastian Cellophanes every 6-8 weeks.

I decided to straighten my hair today though and the only difference was that I roller set using Lacio Lacio and sealed with coconut oil. Sat under dryer and then blew out the ng just a bit. Hair looks and feels great. I think air drying has been good!

I'll probably change my reggie to include DCing in the Fall, but right now, my hair seems happy without them.

I have had to change my regimen recently after noticing breakage in the back of my hair. I am not sure if this breakage came from vigorously smoothing my relaxer or from air drying in a bun. ***Sigh***

Until my next relaxer, I will wash every 3-4 days. One wash is a cowash with my Jojoba Hair one, and the next is a wash with green CON. I DC on at least one of those washes and I DC before I get into the shower. I DC with YTC mask, Silicon Mix , APhogee 2min., or my Moisture Mix(Aussie+Olive Oil+AOHSR). It depends on what I think my hair needs.

For drying:I apply my silk scarf around my edges and roller set the back. I roller set after apply my leave in and serum, and sit under the dryer for 35 minutes. My hair in the front dries nice and straight from the scarf. At this point I protective style with buns, french braid, phony ponies or half wigs until the next wash.

I moisturize once or twice a day with Alba Kuki nut body cream. I seal my ends with a combo of castor oil+ Hollywood Beauty Castor oil once a day.

I have to say that I am liking this new regimen although it is more work than my old reggie. I am noticing that my hair seems to retain moisture better and my ends are looking better. My ends always felt so dry and rough when I airdried in a bun.
