I've said before that my hair loves oils. I have found out that my hair's true love is specifically Argan/Moroccan oil. My hair has never felt so healthy and looked so shiny without looking greasy omg. It also smells so good. I 'll probably stick to Argan/Morrocan oil, Keratin Oil and Coconut oil from now on.
What brand of Keratin Oil do you use melahnee ?

What light/medium protein treatments are you all using? I have SSI Okra in my stash and it doesn't seem like I need to dc afterward (although the instructions say to). I don't usually DC after light protein treatments. My hair felt soft after using the Okra. I went ahead and used a DC afterward anyway. Probably didn't need to.

I use Hairveda Acai Phyto, Curl Junkie Repair Me, or AO Island Naturals Replenishing Conditioner. I don't need a moisturizing DC after these. I just use a moisturizing conditioner

freecurl caliscurls I use Keratin Oil by OGX:

has worked pretty well for me. Argan oil/Moroccan oil are the better oils for me imo though.

I've been lazy with my hair lately, and it's starting to show. I ran to Duane Reade during lunch and bought the Keratin Oil by OGX and a travel spray bottle. I misted my dry frizzy ponytail with water and sprayed the oil. I really like it! :yep:

It smells good too. I'll also try their coconut oil since Ulta has a bogo 50% sale on OGX.

Thanks @melahnee!

I have fine hair and I try to use products that cater to that. I have been considering micros for a bit since I am growing my hair out and it's getting hot. I have been wearing a wig all winter. I know it will be too hot but because of the thin spot I'm afraid I will lose more hair with the micros. I don't know what to do.

I have alot of fine hair.My wngs look like jerri curls, so I am working on doing twist outs more. I previously tried doing them on wet hair first, but found that twists come out kind of stringy and lacking volume.

I was reading a recent post on Curly Nikki where she talks about drying your hair under a tee-shirt first for about 30 minutes, then twisting. Anyone do this?


Also, how are you fine haired ladies maintaining your twistouts? Retwisting for me results in stringy, straight-ish hair.

I do this! I can get 3-4 days out of my twist outs. When I retwist at night I do them about 3x bigger. My initial twist are usually flat twist.

Every day that I have used Blue Magic coconut oil grease, I have had good hair days. Just big juicy curls popping everywhere with lots of shine and volume.

I like how Shea Moisture Tahitian Noni and Monoi Weekly Treatment made my hair. My ends look and feel good.

I have fine hair that I used a maxi-glide on a few days ago. First let me say that I believe the maxi-glide along with grapeseed oil SAVED MY crunchy ends. (I had it set on 5)

BUT, I really came in her to post that I've gotten interesting results using a scarf as fluff in a goddess style braid. The curls were really nice, the bonus was how quickly I could put the braid in (crown style); and the comfortable nights rest. I did this for 2 days in a row. Tonight I'm trying this with 2 goddess style braids stacked.

i also had soft hair when using it.
im transitionning back and i think i will use it again and just listen to my hair rather than What everyone says (no grease,no heat,no this no that).

my hair did good With heat ( serum and tension method at 70% dry hair), and dusting : retension for me.

i will do more ps too. differents ones (twists use to break my ends)....

I did not take anypictures. AND my "stacked" goddess braidout was an epic fail. It may have been because it was so humid, and I did not use any products for styling.


Regarding the scarf here are a couple of youtube videos:
SonicGlide: now $100 on Amazon

Just posted this on the slow growers thread.

For the last few weeks I'd been doing these honey treatments and Co washing every other day. I noticed my edges looking a little thin so I decided to cut back to two treatments a week.

This Sunday I was doing my normal weekly DC and noticed some 1/2 inch strands so immediately I thought breakage but as I took a closer look I noticed they're all over and is not breakage is new hair! My hair seems to be getting denser! Not only am I a slow grower I have a mixture of thin/thick strands and low/medium density.

My hair seems to be the opposite of most my hair thrives w/ more rather than less manipulation. Protective styles and cleansing a few times a month causes my hair to shed and scalp act up. Cleansing frequently and styling a few times a week (combing/detangling only when I DC) makes my hair happy which makes me happy because I love to switch up my doo. :)

What is the honey treatment?

What is the honey treatment?

It's to treat seborrheic dermatitis. Raw honey w/ a little distilled water that I put on my face and scalp for a few hrs every other night and then moisturize with Coconut oil. I was supposed to do it for 30 days and then once a week, I did 21 days. The honey works as an antifungal agent. I think the thinning resulted from me massaging the thick honey in a little to roughly.

Hello ladies!

What would you say is most essential for the ends for fine strand ladies - moisture or oil or both?!

Really sorry if this has already been covered!

Thanks!

Moisture, but my hair isn't big on oil. I use hair lotion, so I get moisture and sealant.

I'd say both as well but I use oil right after washing before I apply any product. After my leave in and styler I like to seal my ends with a butter.

The shine/improvement in health/increasing thickness in my blown-out hair is giving me a bit of motivation.
