So I will be buying the Emg TOMORROW and alternate like you said.


So Dudley's DRC thats a deep conditioner also? I'm going to have my own beauty supply store smh.
Oh boy, I totally understand the shedding!! I used to be so embarrased by how much hair was on the floor after I wrapped it at night or unwrapped it in the morning. Luckily DH didn't complain too much & is used to it now! But it is really ridiculous. My beautician said its totally normal, especially when the seasons change. I could never understand how it was normal to lose so much hair!
And yeah, relaxer time...THE WORST!!!! smile105.gif

DRC...It's like a deeeeeep, penetrating treatment. I used that when it was realllllly bad. Can't really explain it but here's a description of Dudley's DRC:
Amazon.com: Dudleys DRC 28 Hair Treatment and Forifier: Health & Personal Care
Product Description
Dudley's DRC 28 is a deep-penetrating advanced hair treatment and fortifier that is concentrated with most of the hair's own natural protein and amino acids. This rich formula works from the inside out - nourshing, restoring and repairing severely damaged or weakened hair to a stronger, healthier state.
It prevents & repairs damage & provides protection from heat.

Directions: Shampoo and rinse the hair. Towel blot to remove excess water. Fill an applicator bottle with 1/2 to 2 oz. of Dudley's DRC 28. Saturate each strand of hair thoroughly. Place cotton along the hairline to prevent dripping. Cover hair with a plastic cap and put client under a warm pre-heated dryer for 15 minutes (no heat before curl chemical applications). Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and towel blot. Use a Dudley moisturizing conditioner to soften the hair. Rinse with lukewarm water. Towel blot the hair.

Deep Conditioners vs. Reconstructors - MotownGirl.com - Natural Hair Care - Natural Black Hair Care - Black Natural Hair
this is good info...because i was going to use the penetrate every two weeks so i guess once a month is good. thanks

use a leave in conditioner daily (I am using Joico, some sort of a mouse like foam, and I like it seeing as what I don't like about the sprays is that they make your het wetter which is counterproductive to the blow-drying) and a mask once a week (I had an amazing one but can't remember the name).

 

For the masks, I've been told by several stylists that the longer you leave it in the better (i.e. 1 hour, or even overnight). Cover your head with a shower cap to keep the humidity in. Even better, wrap a small towel wet with super hot water around your head (after the shower cap). The more heat there is the more the mask / deep conditioner will have effect.

I swear by Joico's K-Pac - after I use the stuff, my hair is so silky! Even if I curled it into ringlets the night before, and applied so much hairspray that my hair was litterally hard as a rock! lol I use Joico's leave in reconstructor everyday as well - it's great, it is a detangler as well. :)
