I just celebrated my 1 year naturalversary on January 25th! The first picture is from the day I did my big chop, and of course the second is from today, only one year later! I rarely wear my hair stretched, but it’s amazing to see the growth that I have, despite my shrinkage. Your site has been extremely helpful throughout this year.

My Current Regimen: In January, I let my beloved Wash-N-Go go for a month of twists and twistouts. So basically, I Washed, DCed and twisted it on Sundays, wore the twists until Wednesday, and wore the twistout until that next Sunday. But thankfully I’m back to my Wash-N-Go. Basically, I just wash or co-wash, put in some Kinky Curly Knot Today, Kinky Curly Curling Custard, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and let it be! My Wash-N-Go’s normally last anywhere from 3-5 days. I just listen to my hair, and when it’s ready to start over, I wash it again.

My Nightly routine: Well, last night I tried pineappling for the first time (I did a modified pineapple, with one on each side of my head since my hair is still short-ish) and I loved it! But ordinarily I just sleep as-is with a bonnet and that works, too.

Current Products: SheaMoisture Moisture Retention Shampoo, Trader Joe Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner, Giovanni Direct Leave in (for twists), SheaMoisture Curling Smoothie (for twists or a softer, fuller Wash-N-Go), and of course my holy grails: KCKT, KCCC, and EVOO.

Again, this site is a godsend! Thank you!
