@maneobjective Hi!!! Contemplating this 7 day challenge, but if I have high porosity, 3c/4a, would it be beneficial?

@kira.ziyow

@kira.ziyow
Ok I read the post and the plastic gloves are something I definitely wanted to blog about first lol. But I totally agree and about the multitasking and using less product and and decrease in volume and curl maker lasts so long for me too (curl maker was my last styler purchase). In all, I agree with the entire post, aside from my own clay measurement debacle. Your results look rewarding.

@princesslinzz I have a love/hate relationship with diffusing that mostly stems from my laziness lol. Hopefully this vid will help!

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@jazzipooh86 that should be ok...but IMO one of the major steps to not skip is the clay...that's where I see most of my results. At this point I'm just doing the baking soda cowash, deep conditioning, clay, then style. You gotta work that clay in somewhere lol. @jasbrennan according to what the max hydration folks say, you can go every week or 2 weeks to maintain. I'm still trying to work out my end game lol

@jazzipooh86

@jazzipooh86
Ok I can do that Thanks so much

@kira.ziyow

@kira.ziyow
Hey do you feel the clay has any effect on your color? I'm having trouble with the measurements in the MHM so I'm sad to say I'm looking for reasons to kick that step to the curb ๐Ÿ˜ฉ

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@kira.ziyow honestly, I think the baking soda did more of a number on my color and henna than the clay did. For me the clay is everything, but if you aren't feeling the after results then kick it to the curb! I'll be posting my clay recipe soon.

@kira.ziyow

@kira.ziyow
I can't lie, the clay is a def a game changer, yet the texture of my hair is getting dryer. And I've added water little by little. Maybe next time I'll add water and more oil and a lil honey. Ok I'm headed over to your site now. ๐Ÿ‘

I got tired of my scrunchies trying to run away from home. So I keep them looped on an old headband and try my absolute HARDEST to put them back when I'm done. So far, so good.

Do you do cones in your #naturalhair products? Why or why not?
Since beginning the @maxhydrationmethod I've been cone-free, and I definitely see a difference in my hair. It has me seriously debating giving up the ingredient. But that means I'll be losing some of my favorite shampoos and deep conditioners ๐Ÿ˜ข.

@naturalcurls4life

@naturalcurls4life
I do not. I have low porosity and cones block moisture out by coating the hair strands. There are very good shampoos and conditioners that exist.

@ritinha42

@ritinha42
I don't use cones, but which products you'll be giving up! Tell us xx

@ashelybely

@ashelybely
Just started the #maxhydrationmethod, so no cones for 2 weeks

@ashkinscurls

@ashkinscurls
I'm cone free, but have been having horrible tangling and dryness lately. I've been doing modified cg regimen for about 5 years, but things haven't been working the same. I was actually thinking of introducing some cones to see if it would make a difference, but your results with the mhm have me thinking of trying it out one day soon to see if it can help!

@teelacara

@teelacara
No cones for me, they make my seborrheic dermatitis (like eczema on the scalp) flare up.

@tafaramav

@tafaramav
I'm on the mhm but I do use dimethicone. It's a permeable silicone meaning it allows water to pass through it so it does not "block" moisture to my low porosity hair at all. Love it in my conditioner.

@jazzipooh86

@jazzipooh86
Ok so if they act as a barrier they would be out for my in south fl with high humidity

@thecurlycockney

@thecurlycockney
Yup i use cones, love them and can't live without them. If you're low porosity then it's best to steer clear but I'm naturally medium porosity with bleached highlights, which puts sections of my hair in the high zone lol. Silicones help me to keep the moisture locked in and also prevent my hair from tangling too. I only use dimethicone when I use heat, but I always look for amodimethicone in my conditioners. If I use "all natural" ingredients, my hair is dry and brittle by day 3/4. It all depends on your hair type, although the way I see it, all of the bloggers I follow who have the longest/glossiest hair (type 3) use silicones themselves. It's a personal choice and you must pick whichever your hair responds to best x

WOW it looks amazing. Im so scared to straighten my hair. I trust you though. I'm going to try it soon. I'm doing a henna treatment probably next week. Should I wait any amount of time after the treatment to straighten my locs. .lol

@ressessocurly

@ressessocurly
I know you had to pray do a rain dance and coax a video out of almost an entirely corrupted file but it was good! Quick question are the larger perm rods the best option? My hair is a tighter curl pattern than yours (in most areas of my head) and I just can't seem to get it to straighten over any roller it's very annoying

Hey! So Jordana recommended you to me and I've been researching on your blog. I saw the culver city hair salon you went to and wanted to give it a try since I need a trim TERRIBLY! (One side of my hair is longer and healthier than the other) But I've only done no heat for about 3 weeks... I'm educating myself on the transitioning process. You waited almost 2 years before getting a trim? Do you recommend I wait, get a press and trim one last time before going completely no heat, or try out the shop during my beginning stages?

Christina! Hope all is well (like I know you personally lol) I need a max hydration method update like a user needs a hit! Of course you have a life, like me. I just want you to know that I'm patiently waiting to see what the comparison is. I did the method every other day and reached day 5 today. I've deviated from the method a bit using diff products and less water, and I'm not sure if I will return. I'd possibly do it every 4 days or so since it's now in the 60s to 70s here in nyc. No more wet hair on the go lol.

@kira.ziyow hey girl!!! I posted a day 3 update today, currently on day 4 after a mini stall out lol. About to link the post soon!!! How is deviating working for you?

@kira.ziyow

@kira.ziyow
I had an incorrect combo for my wash n go. My curls were crispy dry all over again ๐Ÿ˜‚ so today I did the regular situation which gave me great results the first time. And I'll prob check the site for steps to skip and alter. The clay mask/rinse is leaving a weird feeling, like moisturized yet drying. Maybe it's because I'm not using exactly the same condish for each step. I'm using the raw Shea masque for the DC and tea tree tingle as condish maybe the oils are what I feel when the clay is rinsed out that's giving resistance ..? I'll prob utilize the KCKT I have in my stash like instructed for next week. My curls are looking calmer tho. I'll check your blog too. Thanks for the response!

@maneobjective
@kira.ziyow I know EXACTLY what you mean. On day 1 I expected the clay to be drying but it feels moisturized but not silky smooth to the point where you can run your fingers through it. I just throw in some Tresemme Naturals after rinsing the clay and let it sit for a few minutes. Then I proceed to either rinse it all our or only partially in preparation for my leave in and gel. For me it doesn't matter about the conditioner switch....i have been deep conditioning with @edenbodyworks jojoba Monoi dc and using Tresemme for everything else. Hope that helps!

Don't lie -- before you went natural, words like "cones", "poo", and "pineapple" had a different meaning. Still confused on the meaning of some of these words? Click the link in the bio and have a little fun!
On another note, when you first went natural did you feel like you needed Rosetta Stone to help you learn the lingo? ๐Ÿ˜‚ #naturalhair #naturallycurly #bblogger

I don't have the most followers. My videos don't go viral. I don't have any big brand sponsors. But what I do have across all my platforms (minus the blog), is over 10,000 of the most amazing, loyal, thoughtful, and loving supporters. And for that, I say THANK YOU. Because of you all, I am able to pursue my passions at a level I had never thought possible. The natural hair community has truly been a blessing, and my contributions are a labor of love. A special thank you to @blackgirllonghair and @naturallycurly for allowing me to be a part of an amazing team of contributors for over 2 years. Every article, every video, every review, every social media post, is put together with integrity and love. I've learned so much since I relaunched The Mane Objective in 2012, and I am committed to growing and taking the abilities God has given me to the next level -- because I know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose. Thank you all, and I hope you had an amazing Labor Day โค

This little bottle is everything right now. I needed something quick for my hair that I could use right after coming off the golf course. I couldn't use It's a 10 or ApHogee Curlific leave in sprays because they have cones. Rather than spend more money (yes, I actually opted to NOT buy products lol), I made this before I left home. I filled the bottle 3/4 with water, added 1 short squeeze of Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner, and 3 pumps of @camillerosenaturals Fresh Curl. Light enough to hydrate, moisturize, refresh, smooth, and keep my hair soft! What's your favorite DIY spritz recipe? #DIY #naturalhair #tresemme #camillerosenaturals #maxhydrationmethod

Is this another part of the max hydration method? I'm trying to learn #mhm so I can try it but I can't seem to understand the steps.

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@ressessocurly @christine.e_85 Lmao!!!! It was such a sense of accomplishment.

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@edforward of top, no....but I'm not sticking to solely MHM approved products either. My main objective (lol) is to avoid cones. @missdeekay2012 can probably help though.

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@myg77 it's not an official step but because I am splitting my washes up every 3 days, I use this to refresh in the meantime. Also, you can click the link in my bio and I break down how I'm following the method.

@maneobjective

@maneobjective
@loveyousomelisa I love the way it smells....but it made my hair sticky lol. Watered down is the only way I can use it. @chantelleyd right!!! Lmao. @radiantbrownbeauty @emeraldsr_4ever @msweet185 @naturallycurly718 thanks I'll have to try those!
