Pre-pooApplied to four section a hot oil mix of sunflower oil, coconut oil, olive oil, and green tea. I saturated my scalp and relaxed hair and detangled. There were still some hidden tangles from last wash day's conditioner mix up. Once my relaxed hair was fully detangled I applied the Eden BodyWorks Deep Conditioner mixed with a little Suave Natural Infusions Moisturizing Conditioner (this is different from the anti-breakage conditioner I used last week) and wore my heating cap for 40 minutes.
CleansingUsed As I Am Cleansing Pudding which surprisingly didn't lather like it did the previous times I used it.
Tea rinse and conditionThe tea rinse was a combination of green and black tea which didn't leave the drying effect that black tea alone did. Without rinsing out the tea I applied a new keratin oil conditioner. The conditioner doesn't have much slip, but it's a lot better than that Suave mess I used last week. We'll see what a second use of the conditioner brings.

Drying and stylingAfter t-shirt drying for a while I applied Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave In Conditioner mixed with sunflower oil as a leave in and did two semi-french braids (semi because I'm not the best braider) for my hair to air dry in. The braids kept my new growth stretched. After several hours I took the braids out and my hair was still damp, but I liked the waves the braids created.
I decided to put my hair back in the braids, sat under my hooded dryer for 30 minutes, and left the braids in overnight. The result was a pretty nice braid out.
