My hair is doing very well I have a length that is not so high maintenance and intensive as before. I wear my hair in two strand twists and split to make micro twist in about a week. I wear the micro twists for about 3 weeks I could wear them longer but I am afraid it will loc. Then I wear it out for about a week twist out. Then a week afro/puffed. This is about a 6 week cycle ideally. I am not a product junkie any more because I have found out what works and because I am frugal I still use the crap that doesn't by mixing it with staples. The stuff that works on my hair is lusters twisting cream. It has some good stuff and some bad. Mineral oil pertroleum but my hair likes it and it is a moistening twisting cream. I have to thin it out with about 2 parts warm water and mix it until it is like a batter. I just started mixing in 1 part conditioner. I use Lets Jam Extra Holding on my edges for puff. and african royale braid spray to moistrize. I also make an elxir of shea butter and coconut oil and water to put through my twists when needed. I also use the kiddie 'just for me' naturals hair oil and detangling lotion. I was conditioner washing but I have switched back the cream of Nature shampoo because I have so much build up.
