On my old page I would thank each person individually for their comments and it became a generic, repetitive list of "thank you" and "thanks so much". Now I respond only to questions left in the comments. This in no way implies that I am any less grateful for the comments. Maintaining this page and reading your comments have bolstered my confidence and given me the chance to love my natural hair. So, even though I don't say it to you individually, I say it now to everyone - THANK YOU!

I started a blog - I have already described my henna experiences so far and given more details about my journey to natural hair. Check it out.

**Hair Care Routine**Updated 05/14/09
I have had a few queries about my methods and the products I use so here goes:
I wash with Tresemme. In the mornings I condition with Pantene Pro-V Hydrating Curls Conditioner and at night I use whichever I happen to grab. I ALWAYS put Infusium 23 leave-in on my hair. Then one of two things happen:
1. I apply Ecostyler Styling Gel and by apply I mean I try to get it as evenly distributed all over my hair as possible. Then I wrap an ouchless head band from Walmart around my head twice. At night I wash and condition to make sure I don't sleep with gel on my hair. If not this, then
2. I do small twists. I divide my hair into four sections applying Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream to each section. I use a comb to distribute the product and to make sure there are no tangles. I then braid each section in order to retain moisture. I start working with one of the sections in the front. I undo the braid and I just grab a small section, apply a little more Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream, if necessary, divide the section into two pieces and twist. When I take the twists out, I separate each into two pieces by twirling my hair in the opposite direction of the twist. I find that this is fast and less likely to create frizz. I have only been able to make it 3-4 days before washing and starting over.
Other than to unravel twists for a twist out, I don't do any kind of styling or combing once the hair is dry. Otherwise I get a BIG FRIZZY MESS and I rip out my hair. I detangle in the shower with a wide tooth comb and lots and lots of conditioner. I have to admit that I don't detangle every time I wash, maybe every week or so.

**Staple Products** (Updated 5/14/09)
- Henna
- Ecostyler gel
- Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream
- *Infusium 23 Leave-In* I've been using this since day one without fail. I love this product!
