      I use to take a straightened out hanger and dig it out. It's gross but effective

        1/2 cup Baking soda down the drain, then 1/2 cup of white vinegar. Wait 1/2 hour and run hot water down the drain. Repeat if necessary. That gets the conditioner, shampoo and gucky stuff to loosen up. It should either rinse all the way down or be easier to pull out. Get one of those cheap plastic hair catchers from the store. They are usually about $2 and stop most of the hair from going in the drain.

        This treatment is good for sluggish kitchen and/or stinky drains too.
        Texture: Coily, zigzags, kinky and one little bit wavy.
        Store bought Staples: Honey, I'm strong, HE TotallyTwisted Gel, FX Silk Drops silicone serum.
        Homemade Staples: Mixed butter, butter and oil pomades, handmade hair creams and lotions.
        Style preference: Low manipulation, tuck and roll, loose buns and twists.
        Ayurvedic: Henna, amla, zizzy, tulsi, brahmi, shikaikai, etc.

        • Does anyone use Garnier Fructis products and have an opinion on them? Specifically the "oils" and leave-in conditioners.

I haven't been taking good care of my hair and its to be expected. I live in a small town with no access to a natural hair salon, the nearest is over 60 miles.
                Ideas?
                I've seen naptural85 on YouTube do it herself. Check it out.

                • For those of you who use Jamacain Black Castor Oil, how long does it take for you to use a 4 ounce bottle of oil? Do you apply it to your hair as well as your roots and scalp?

                  Second question -

                  Has anyone ever used the scalp massagers that you can order from online? If so, does it work and is it worth ordering?

                  Thanks.

                    It depends how long and thick your hair is. Also how much you use makes a difference too. I used up a bottle during a 3 month castor oil challenge. I was transitioning at the time. I used it throughout the entire length of my then BSL hair, reapplying every other day when I massaged my scalp. I have fine 3c hair.

                • Maybe you're not using the right sealant. I had the same problem for a long time before I realized the oils I used weren't heavy enough. Sent from my SPH-L710 using CurlyNikki App

                      It is absolutely necessary. Otherwise you will have a crazy time trying to get tiny particles of banana out of your hair. If you must mix by hand, you should press the result through a fine mesh sieve to get as smooth a blend as possible. Or you can get the infant baby food banana and use that. It really needs to be very smooth.

                    I loved the products and the way they worked for my hair. What I didn't like was the fact that they discontinued products that I liked. They did that often. I'm not one for change when it comes to my hair!

                    The oils that I used were silicone based, so I loved them: moisture retention, no frizz or knots and a great shine.

                    I liked the leave-in, but I don't remember the specifics.

                      +1 on the baby food!

                      The last time I made a DT, it contained avocado. 3 uses in, I started getting avocado fibers in my hair and they would not come out!

                      That was why it was my last DT.
