    where hair is my blanket
    im here. just got done doing my hair. was being lazy so i just co washed with curl junkie curl rehab, which was better than i remember but probably still wont be a repurchase. and i had to use half the jar:ohwell:
    then i braided with dew and coconut oil. my coconut oil is solid again. hopefully its warm next week so it doesnt have any negative effects on my hair.

    my hair is back. i think it was a combo of finally doing the aphogee 2 step and conditioning every week with emergencee and repair me. oh and the coconut oil.

    Ltown, I ordered the upper management off of vitacost. Its just a regular gel but its natural and it has a pretty firm hold. I like it. I used mesh rollers to set my hair but I think I want some french mesh rollers.

    @chebaby

    Did you get your EVOO? I was gone slap some EVOO over this conditioner, but it was in the Kitchen, so I pulled out a bottle of a Ceramide Mix I got from @Ltown:lick: and slapped some of that over this Avacado & Silk.

    I may start doing this during my DC'ing Days. Apply a little Oil during DC'ing. I want to be practically "Oil Free" going into Fall/Winter. :yep:

    So, I can start over by BF with just a Few Oils in my Stash (other than the Mixes: HTN or HV Avosoya.

    And I still want to try that Claudie Oil Brownie is always talmbout).:look:

    I only had the Shampoo (when I use to get contact Dermatitis sp) but I was very careful with it, because I knew one of the side effects was "Hair Loss":nono:

    Have you tried to Dilute it? Since I've been a DIY'er and had to pull it out after that horrible experience with that nbd stuff, I diluted that Shampoo with Plenty of Water and only applied it to the area that was itching instead of all over.

    no i didnt get my evoo but its ok because im using coconut oil once a week anyway.
    i agree using oils in conditioners is amazing. i used to do it all the time and then stopped but i will start back up.
    esp. adding hemp oil in my kbb mask.

    Imma start slapping it over my DC'ers for a while to use them up.

    I'll still use my heat-cap from time to time, but that's just another extra added step. :ohwell:

    It was nice doing that HOT under Plastic Caps & a Wig:perplexed I should do it Wednesday while at work and then come home and Co-Cleanse.

    Imma really start workin' on these Oils.:yep:

    unless i know im supposed to use it up in a certain amount of time i will keep it.
    like kbb website say 6-9 months but i know my creams will last me 2 summers because they go slow. and these butters with oils dont go bad fast. only if they have water or aloe in it. and even then i think they must not have a good preservative to go bad fast.

    Dang!:blush: That Stuff Really Messed You Up.:sad:

    I haven't really had a problem w/Contact Dermatitis since I left the Shop:look: .........:blush:

    And I only had it at that last shop I went to:rolleyes:..........:nono:

    That Citrus oil stuff gave me a bad reaction. But Since I became a DIY, I haven't had any real problems.

    Welp.:rolleyes: I'm unda' da' dryer and no ones around.:perplexed

    I think I will Baggy on Wednesday w/some EVOO.:grin: Hopefully, it won't be too warm out.

    If it is, I'll skip it and just do a Warm Water Oil Rinse or something.:perplexed

    Today was perfect, because it's still a bit "chilly"

    ETA: Ltown what did you get from Coach?

    @mkd

    Are you doing it now once or twice a week? You said it looked Cute yesterday.....what happened?

    Where do you think the Build Up is coming from? A variety of products or any in particular?

    What will you Moisturize (Deep Condition) with after the 2 Step?

    Hey Ms T, I am still on twice a week. I think its just a variety of products. I use shampoo twice a week but I only clarify once every 6 weeks or so. Its just acting funky.

    I am thinking about DC with KBB or sintrinillah.

    It was cute yesterday girl but today is a whole different story.
