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 . Last night I put my hair in 4 flat twists with rollers. I got so much breakage while setting my hair . 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.
