-Egg and Mayo for 2 hrs(if needed)followed by DC treatment

-Hardcore protein treatment (Aphogee) every 2 months.

Lexi:What are your favorite hair products, and how do you use them?

Naturallynike: Hmm lets see….. I have quite a few, depending on the look I want, but let me tell you the main ones.
I love to use VO5 conditioners (Moisture Milks) to cowash, and detangle with. They give my hair lots of slip and leave my hair very soft, and a plus, they are cheap 99 cents and sometimes 78 cents. 
My current favorite product is Cantu Shea Butter Leave in. I love the juicy and shiny twist and twist out it gives me.I also like the fact that its a leave in and styling product.My favorite gels are Eco Style and Labella Lots of Curls.I use Eco style to slick my edges, and I love Labella for my wash and goes, I usually use it with the conditioner only method to get more elongation.

Lexi: What’s your favorite style and how do you do it?

Naturallynike: Im always playing around my hair and I like to rock many different styles. My two main favs are Two strand flat Twist outs and Cornrow outs. For both I like to use a variety on products and combo’s, and im always alternating between the two. For fullness and elongation, I do them on dry hair. I love to use the combination of Jamaican Mango n Lime Locking Gel and IC Fantasia Olive Oil Gel. The IC Fantasia gives hold, while the JML gives the shine and softness. As of right now im using Cantu shea butter leave in for my , and it has become a staple, because I can use this product alone during the whole week.
Another favorite and new style of mine is wash and goes, because I finally mastered it lol. I do my wash n goes using the Conditioner Only method. While my hair is drenched with water in the shower I finger comb in sections a combination of HH Long Term Relationship, Sauve Naturals Tropical Coconut Conditioner, and Labella Lots of Curls Gel. Then I shake my hair like a wet dog lol (in the shower of course), this wakes up my curls since they are stretched out from the weight of the water. I plop my hair for about 20 mins to get the extra water out. I don’t like walking around with a wet head, so I blow my hair using a diffuser attachment, and when my hair is fully dry I tug on my roots while using the concentrator attachment to get more volume, and Im left with a curly fro!! lol
