In the beginning of this journey, my hair could not take a lot of protein even though it needed it.
After any protein treatment, my hair would be hard and tangled like hell. Even though I tried it all: detangling before washing, long DC sessions, wash and condition in section etc.
My beloved steamer was my saviour!
This is the best investment I made in my hair journey and believe me I, yes I am, I am a product junkie. I must confess. Worst, I do not want to go on rehab, no no :).
I DC under the steamer from 8 or 10 weeks post until the end of my 5 monthes stretches.
I must say that I'm addicted. I could never stretch that long with my kinky 4 a/b hair. My hair can become a unruly when I'm deep in my stretch.
Today my hair is strong but soft at the same time: mission accomplished!
