I have been eyeballing this product for over a year!! I have tried most of the henna out there. What i like about this henna is that it contains 9 herbs!! Naturalista, Relaxed, texlaxed and the straight hair community have had nothing but great things to say about this henna. Now it's my turn. I'll keep ya posted :o)

It's not easy!

14 week post ponytail with lots of shrinkage
Well, i'm at the point in my stretch where i have lots of new growth. Lots of tangles and breakage. I've been here before so, this time i put into practice everything i've learned from my past stretches, plus some new techniques that i'm mixing with the old. So far so good.

Here's what i'm doing :

1. co-washing - 3x week (more co-washing need as stretch continues)
i'm using my new favorite conditioners for co-washing (Shi-Naturals-Moisture Balance Deep Conditioner & Protein Balance Deep conditioner)

2. Herbal Tea Rinse (Shi-Naturals -  Herbal Growth Rinse to detangle and promote growth)

3. Moisturize & Seal (homemade moisture mix) in sections. Seal with almond oil, or grapeseed oil, or castor oil

4. Protective style (wig, braids, weave or bun)
