Ok, so I have changed my hair care regimen a bit. I have started using" Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 Miracle Worker" and I love it. It's great for braid-outs. I rub that on my hair before I plait it. I take the braids out and comb through my hair so that it is puffy (see above pic). This style seems to be working for me lol for now. Thank God :-) Please share your hair care tips with me!
