  1. Hi Jen! I wanted to know how to identify if your leave in is a humectant moisturizer. I am currently using ORS Incredibly Rich Moisturizing Lotion, Kinky-Curly knot today, Kanechom Ceramidas leave in. I usually rotate from day to day not in a specific order just pick which one I want to use on any given day. Thank So much for your help. Im new to the hair journey process so I rely on your blog for everything

  2. Hi,Jen just beginning my hair journey so as you should know there's alot I have to learn could you tell me what are some good moisturizers that doesn't contain humectants

  3. Just wanted to say that I love your blog and I tried a tea rinse for the first time yesterday. I used regular Lipton tea, rinsed it out then applied my leave-in (Knot Today). My roller set came out soft and shiny. I think tea rinses are a keeper for me. I'm glad it didn't make my hair stiff after rinsing, I just saw that you dc after tea rinsing.

  4. hey Jen,

    i'm not sure why but my hair only seems to respond to moisturisers that contain humectants. I've been using s-curl since april and my hair loves it. But now that its getting colder…not so much. I would have tried the moisturiser you suggested above but I live in the UK and I don't think we have it here.

    any tips?

      Hi there, a huge chunk of the moisturizers I've tried are from homemade vendors but I'm not sure which ones ship to the UK :/

      There are a number of UK members of the JGA forum. I've started a thread for you asking them where they purchase their moisturizers. Here's the link http://justgrowalreadyforum.com/topic189.html

      Hope this helps!

  5. Hi Jeni. Can you please recommend some good humectant-free moisturisers (that aren't from the "strictly available in the US" brands like Darcy's or Silk Dreams)?

  6. I use a applicator tip for my shampoo too. It makes it so much easier.

  7. Great post and right on time. I was wondering if I should retire my Whipped Cream Ends by Hairveda and I think I will until the spring. Thanks for the great tips, Jeni!

    P.S. – Kerapro is on sale at Sally's this month.

  8. I was wondering if you do any protective styles during that season because I notice you don't talk about extensions. Do you experience any problems with wearing your own hair during this period?

      If I'm wearing my hair down for the day, I put my hair up in a loose bun when I'm outside to keep it away from my coat, then just take down the bun once I'm indoors. If I'm bunning for the day (which I most am during the winter) I moisturize, seal, and throw my hair up into a bun before I leave my place.
