    Thank you ladies!! @whatevs at the moment I'm just co washing it daily w/ HE hello hydration and leaving that overnight with a shower cap. The morning after I wash it out, mix whipped shea butter recipe on damp hair. My hair seems to love it but at the same my hair really sucks up the conditioner, particularly the crown. But I'm getting the hang of it. These threads are very helpful!

    @4bseoul you will be fine. Learn what works for your hair by playing in it now. It will make life easier in the months to come. One thing I remember a vet telling me was "do wash and goes for at least a month to learn your hair." that in itself has really helped me. I tested products, I learned what felt good, what looked good, and even what smelled good :)
    Taking time out to care for your hair now, will be seen in the months to come. Hope that helps

    even tho im still kinda newly natural and new to the boards a tipI can give is please try to keep your regimen simple and stick to one you find works best for your hair, like tweaking someone else's(maybe one that focuses on moisture since you said your hair sucks up condish)

    Enjoy your hair
