    Yes. You wrap the thread around a section of your hair and you let your hair air dry.

    You can also use it to keep styles from shrinking, like two strand twists.

    With filtered water: as many times as needed.

    To seal: no more than thrice a week, so as to avoid build-up.

    Think I've mastered the art of achieving straight hair, without using heat. Barely even notice the difference between having relaxed or natural hair. I no longer see washing + DCing my hair as a chore either, it's just part of my beauty ritual, that provides me with great ease.

    Ease to feel and look my best, without harming my health in the process. Now I still have A LOT to learn, but overall, me happy lol. But as per usual, another setback is announcing itself: my disappearing edges + flaky scalp. LeSigh.

    The verdict is in:

    As mentioned upthread, another setbackville is presenting itself, but...I will cope :yep: :lol:. Have eased down on the brewer's yeast and am just going strong with @Chicoro 's method of using shea butter. Usually mix it with condi's. My protective style of choice is African threading

    My latest acquisition:

    Can't wait to try it, feeling all kinds of giddy about it :D.

    I have not posted in a while...

    I have been keeping my hair in two braids under my grace eleyae cap (if you want one in small or medium, I definitely recommend get it now since they are $12 each instead of $24) for the week and I realized that I actually really like doing that. I may try to integrate it more often over the winter months since I can get away with wearing a hat.

    Regarding my current hair goal, I will definitely be at full hip length. I doubt that the back half will reach tailbone as I had previously thought. I shall see later on.

    Used the Mane & Tail shampoo + conditioner and am pleased with the result. Like the fact that both combos are of a creamy texture. Was also able to retain length just by changing my mindset: I no longer view hairs on my comb as ‘normal’, but try to figure out what is going on ( inside + outside ).

    Currently dealing with two setbacks: disappearing edges and dandruff. Will order JBCO for my edges. Will have to consult a specialist for my dandruff.
