    Good point about the wash n go! My hair is mid-back and wash n go’s take about as much effort as blow out now ..smh

    Great suggestions…I notice that lately I been having a lot of knots in my hair and want to scream. But I guess I’ll manage with the detangler sprays I bought.

    Ps….thanks for letting me know about washing my hair while its in braids….new info 🙂

    Ha ha! I tend to play with the natural coils of my hair, especially just before relaxing. I told a friend of mine that I actually like the way how my natural hair feels when its growing out – she thinks I have issues. She likes her hair to lay straight so she loves that creamy crack!

    Very good tips. (I’ll try to keep my hands out of my hair.)
