    I still have this (rose h2o) and I used it yesterday. I didn't really notice much difference because I have been wearing my hair up for this past month. I remember when I used it in the past when I was wearing my hair down and it did help, I was just looking for any daily moisturizing cond. and I grabbed the mizani rose...
    My hair felt softer and easier to comb.

    To me it's more oily/greasy then watery/creamy.

    If you are working with healthy hair, then this isn't a bad idea at all. I wouldn't even see a problem with you sitting under the dryer with your rollers because it's not direct heat and as I mentioned before--you'll get some deep conditioning action.

    If you were not working with healthy hair, I would not advocate the washing every other day. (not even CO washing)

    This won't ruin your blow out if you use it sparingly. :up:

    If you're going to do a protein treatment, I specifically recommend one of these: Design Essentials Moisture Retention, Deep Brilliance Hydration, or Keracare Hydrating Detangling.

    If you're not doing protein, I would recommend one of the above 3 or one of these: Elasta QP Shampoo for Relaxed Hair, Elucence Moisture Benefits Shampoo

    SG, I did a heavy protein treatment last Friday with Nexxus Emergencee. Do you suggest that I do solution B now or solution C? Or should I just focus on moisture?? Also, what's the best way to moisturize twice a day?? Like, what products can be used for moisture, and what products can be used to seal that moisture??

    Hi Ms Twana,

    Solution B is protein and it sounds like you've already done your protein. Why don't you go ahead and try "Solution C." I think you'll be quite pleased.

    Currently, my favorite moisturizer is Neutrogena Silk Touch Leave-In. I seal with jojoba, but you can seal with most oils.

    Thanks for the advice Supergirl! :)

    When you are not shampooing for two weeks, can u wash your hair in between w/smthg else? I dont think I can go 2 full weeks w/o washing at all. :nono:

    I'm saying not to use shampoo for 2 weeks. I'm not saying that you can't rinse and use conditioner though. The point is to keep away from shampoos for a while.

    Thank you sooo much for such an informative post!:D I am definitely going to give these methods a try. It seems like no matter what I do I still get breakage.:( I really hope this works for me.

    Supergirl,

    This is a fantastic post. I've save your info to reference later. I've experienced some shedding lately and I'm going to try your suggested solutions. One major thing I need to do is get off some of the "cheap" products.

    Did you mention a clarifying shampoo suggetion? Sorry if I missed it. Also, the 2x moisturizing that you do daily, is it with the Neutregena leave-in?

    When you say no heat, does that include sitting under a hooded dryer/ ionic hooded dryer? TIA :)

    My airdrying method goes a little something like this:

    I step out of the shower with dripping wet hair. No squeezing, no towel blotting, nothing! You see if I leave it soaking/dripping wet, it's going to air dry smoother because the weight of the water pulls down on the hair and helps it to air-dry with maximum straightness and smoothness. Usually, I will add a leave-in after I step out of the shower with dripping hair and I comb the leave-in through. I comb through my hair every 30 minutes to 1 hour while it's air drying.

    If I stay home, my hair will take 4-7 hours to air dry. :shock: If I go out, it dries much faster--like 2 to 3 hours faster.

    I'd say my ends are in the condition they're in because I've not used heat very often over the last 5-6 years. Also, I've been trimming alot more lately since I have reached a length I'd like to stay at.

    I didn't mention a clarifying shampoo. If it says "clarifying" then it should work fine.

    When I was following this regimen to help with breakage, I was moisturizing 2X daily with the Neutrogena leave-in.

    I think sitting under the dryer would be fine if you are rollersetting. But if you are combatting breakage, I don't think I'd recommend just sitting under the dryer with your hair loose.

I have been going to the gym now for 5-6 days sweatin through workouts and ellipticals for around 1 1/2 to 2 hrs a day. My hair is mad at me...lol.....it does not want to stay mmoisturized! So I'm gonna try me some H20 Mizani rose and see how that works. Anyone else in my exact boat...plus this summer Cali heat aint helpin!

    I know it's a fight to keep your body sexy and your hair too! Since I only wash my hair 2X/week, if I have a real sweaty work out (and it seems I sweat in the head first, how convenient!) then I'll just spray a liquid leave-in through to "refresh" if that day isn't a wash day.

    Yea thats exactly right supergirl! My head first and enough for it to take a toll on my hair. I workout really hard and I wish my hair didn't have to suffer so much. The salt from the sweat, zaps all the moisture out of my strands. What liquid leave-in do you use to spray with after workouts?

    The only reason that I purchased this product was because I saw it in your siggy! I've been using it for about 2 weeks now and my hair feels much softer and way more manageable. I meant to thank you for putting it in your siggy a while ago. I don't use the Rose brand because I couldn't find it in the local BSS but it's GREAT!!! Even after I shampooed and conditioned with my staple products, it still felt WONDERFUL, if not better! So thanks Supergirl! It is an awesome product!

    Now you know I have a million. I have used Pantene Light Spray Detangler. You could also use the Pantene Relaxed & Natural Wrap/Set Lotion as it is the exact SAME product as the Light Spray Detangler, but has jojoba and coconut oils added.

    I've also used Kenra Daily Provision for this.

    Any spray/liquid leave-ins are worthy as long as they do not make your hair hard.
