    What is your regime for using these products? How often do you use them?

    Hi urbanmystic6 I use the powders to make a paste to apply to my hair, but prior to the paste, I use an oil (alma/shikakai or vatika) - these are my favorites sometimes from the night before or if on the same day I will let the oil sit for 1-2hrs if I am doing house work - as a prepoo or just to coat the hair and I will then apply the paste and let it sit for 30mins or till dry then I will rinse thoroughly with warm to hot water as hot as I can bear then I will process to DC (with either one of these conditioners - Keracare Creme Humecto, Motions Moisture Plus or Keracare Restorive Masque) then sit under my hooded hair dryer with a steam cap for 30-45mins then rinse and proceed to apply my leave ins and style!

    I have single braids in at the moment so I make the powders into a rinse and I oil my roots and the braids to where my hair stops let it sit as I did above then use the rinse through my hair, I then rinse thoroughly, then apply some conditoner i.e tresseme for 15mins then I rinse and get excessive water out of braids, I will apply a little coconut oil to scalp and braids where my natural hair ends and let it air dry.

    With my braids in I use the rinse 1-2times weekly and with my natural hair I use the paste once a week or bi-weekly for the paste, I would love to use it 1-2 times weekly on my natural hair, but time I don't have really.

    Hope this gives you some idea, I am gathering some info on how to mix these powders in various ways and also on oils that are good I will post shortly under 'general hair' keep watching for it, I am sure you will find it useful
