    I'm taking my cornrows out on Friday and would like to know what you all do after you take yours out as far as detangling and other things. I usually get a relaxer after I take out my braids but I'm think about transitioning and I don't want to do that. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. TIA!

    Thanks for the responses. Do you all think a protein treatment is neccesary? Do you use anything special for detangling?

    i think a protien treatment would be great..followed up with a moisturizing co.
    i do a hot oil treatment, then a good wash followed up with a deep co.. and then a leave in...

    I just detangle, wash/deep condition my ends and rebraid. Sometimes I wash my braids with CON, take them out, detangle and rebraid it back up.

    I'm wearing braids now (like larger micros) and when I take them out I am going to prepoo w/EVOO, MTG & Jojoba, clarify, deep condition w/ emergencee and follow up w/ moisturizing cond. Is Miss Key 10 en 1 moisturizing? I'll probably baggie & phony pony for 2 weeks and then get cornrows.
    HTH :grin:

    I would wash my hair and scalp really good, follow with a light protein and then wear protective styles for about two more months then perm. :)

    I take my braids out and Deep conditon or do a protein treatment and then use a moisturizing shampoo or a moisturizing conditioner if I use a protein tratment. I also use a leave-in conditoner/detangler afterwards.

    1. Detangle w/large tooth comb
    2. Shampoo - NEXXUS BOTANOIL (washed for 3 min.)
    3. Reconstruct - AFFIRM 5n1 (left in hair for 30 min w/plastic cap)
    4. Condition - ORS HAIR MAYONNAISE (left in for 1 hour w/foil cap)
    5. Air Dry - 4 PLATTS
    6. Spritzed - Sta Sof Fro
    7. Bun - DONUT

    I CO wash every other day...Oh yea, I'm currently 12 weeks post relaxer and the Sta Sof Fro is a HUGE help for stretching my relaxer..(Thanks to the LHCF ladies ;) , because I never would've thought of this on my own!)
