Ok Finally! I think year #2 will be smooottthhh sailin! I knew what i had to do but just could not find a way to get it done. I have now! ...
I found out what my hair likes in regards to airdrying.
#1-Pre poo with whatever conditioner or oil I have for a minimum of 30 minutes.
#3 Rinse the Conditioner out with warm running in the shower.
#2- Dilute Shampoo (If washing with poo) 4 parts water, 1 part poo.
#3- Rince the shampoo
#4- Apply Conditioner and Put on a Shower Cap for a few minutes while showering...this gives the conditioner the time frame it needs to set in. Also, it gives the effects of a steamed timed of treatment. Once I'm done, I remove the cap and rinse Conditioner or Balance Treatment out with warm water.
#5- Use my dominican Avocado Rinse to detangle under running water.
#6-Rinse with cold water
#7-Gentley Gather hair back into a loose pony tail with a scrunchie while soak and wet. ( I Don't towel dry at all anymore. I've learned that my hair does better when I simply get out of the shower, wring it a little before I get out and immediately start applying my cremes n stuff!)
#8 Spray on Leave in Conditioners, And Oil...the secret is sealant...VASELINE!! Who would have ever thought that Petroleum is a super duper sealant to help aid in the airdrying of my texlax hair.(I know that its a no no, but its a lesser even compared to heat)
#9- Make sure to apply more oil on the ends once secured in the scrunchie....its takes 3 days to completely dry! But,,,,no breakage!

I just returned from Roatan and have discovered that my hair is soooo much healthier! Its because I washed with cold water there (because there was no hot water available) and because I used conditioner to moisturize my hair evreyday instead of Coconut Grease as a leave in! My hair air dried very nicely!
I am hooked on my DR Products and my hair loves them as well. Can't wait til Jenn MD opens the site back up for purchase here are the things I am eager to try:
Wheat Germ Conditoner & Rinse
Color Shower Tints
Silicon Mix Conditioner
More Conditioner Rinses..doesnt matter what kind
Methods I want to try as well:
FlexiRod (Need to perfect it! I tried it early on..forgot about it)
Magnetic Rollersetting...(This is a HARD ONE! tried soo many times)
Need to get on a Hair & Health Diet!
My hair is now shoulder length again...I will take pics to post. I decided to start all over again to see how far I can grow it this time around. Alot has happened in my life since my last posts where i neglected my hair journey.
However i am ready now....stay tuned
