After rinsing out the conditioner, I shampooed with Creme of Nature Moisture & Shine Shampoo. Many of you suggested I try this shampoo and I’m happy I heeded your advice because it’s a very nice shampoo. It’s sulfate free, but cleansed my hair well. Most importantly (and to my surprise to be honest) it detangled my hair so freaking well and let my hair so soft afterwards. Keeper? Oh yes.
 After shampooing, I tea rinsed with marshmallow root.
 Then I deep conditioned overnight with Kurlee Belle Banana Nut & Avocado Deep Treatment.
 After t-shirt drying for 20 minutes, I applied Komaza Care Matani Leave-In Conditioner and Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum and detangled. After detangling each section I set my hair on flexi rods (23 purple & 5 gray rods) and blasted my roots with cold air from my blowdryer for about 30 minutes before letting it air dry overnight.
As much as I like the ease that comes with simply detangling, air drying, and bunning during the week, I’ve become very bored with my hair. Short of with straightening it or cutting off enough hair to make y’all scream at your screens, curly hair for the week was was the safer route.
I picked up a tip from KinkyKurlyQueen’s recent flexi rod video where she started a two strand twist before setting her hair on the rod in order to stretch out her roots. I tried it on a couple sections and it’s seriously is a great tip! The sections where I started a two strand twist, my roots were stretched, creating a more uniform curl. You can see the difference in results below. Now I wish I started a two strand twist at every section. But that’s life. We learn and store knowledge for the future.
The next morning, I removed the rods and divided each curl into 2 or 3.
