    Thanks. I have that dryer, but I haven't used it yet. I'll check out her video.

    Thank you @shtow for sharing your regimen! My regimen is really simple, so I this let's me see that I'm on the right track!

    So I washed my hair and didn't straighten. I put my hair into bantu knots and dried under a bonnet dryer. It lasted like a day :rolleyes:. Last night I put my hair in 4 flat twists with rollers. I got so much breakage while setting my hair :cry3: . My hair seems to do so much better when I flatiron it. I'm redoing my hair Saturday and that's what I'm going to do.

    It takes me about 15 mins to blowdry my hair now. When my hair was more textured, it took like 25 mins. I use my blowdryer with the concentrator attachment and a denman brush.

    Do you have any tips for cleaning the bristles and paddle area of the revlon brush? Normally I wash my brushes in the sink, but since the blowdry brush doesn't detach from the electrical area, it's harder to clean. Just wondering if someone figured out an efficient way to clean it.

    I saw a YouTube video (nappyheadedjojoba) where she mentions using a comb to get the hairs out and then a wet wipe to clean it. Hope that helps.

    Okay, thanks! That's a good idea. I've been using a q tip dipped in alcohol, but it takes forever. A wet wipe sounds more efficient.

    I dc'd last night with Aphogee 2 min and followed up with my ORS dc, which I never do. I straighten, and my hair came out very soft and light. I wrapped it for bed. When I took it down, I looked like one of those women on the relaxer boxes :lachen:. Only thing is whenever I love my head my hair moves too. . .right into my face and gets stuck in my lip gloss :cry2:
