Last night I did a hot oil treatment then just cowashed it out. SO MUCH SHEDDING! I decided to trim. Did it in about 4 pieces (abt quarter to half inch...not much). I think it came out pretty straight....slight curve which I don't mind. No more trimming/dusting until next relaxer. For this weekend's wash I got my honey, so just need my garlic conditioner (Alter Ego) and I'll be all set. On Fri/Sat, I'll be doing cowash, porosity, and garlic cond/honey DC. I've also been air drying. Oh, and the following weekend, I'm considering doing another 2 step protein tx...depends on how my hair is behaving. Maybe it missed all the washing. I stopped co-washing/washing twice a week for about 4 weeks.
