Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

I'm wanting to get away from leaving products in my hair. What should I do to keep it moisturized?
If you want to keep your hair moisturized, but not leave in any product: after conditioning, combing, defining, and then rinsing your hair, you can let it dry, then smooth some olive oil or coconut oil onto your ends. This won't weatherproof it, but by you defining your hair, it will keep your curls clumped under regular weather conditions. Adding a bit of a natural oil to your ends will keep them moisturized without adding weight.

Another option is to add a bit of olive oil or jojoba (or any other natural oil you like) to your bottle of conditioner, shake really really well, and use this when you comb and define your curls, then rinse out. This will leave a bit of the oils behind in your hair, even after rinsing. However, if you tend to break out, this might not be the best for you because oil may be deposited closer to your skin this way.
