a non-sulfate shampoo such as Giovanni tea trea invigoration..and don't forget it's not gonna lather lol... the first time I used it i did like 5 shampoos expecting a lather before I remembered it doesn't lather...whatever shampoo you use be sure to rinse more thoroughly than you've ever rinsed before...get squeaky clean

retwist with straight aloe vera gel... u can buy Fruit of the Earth at ulta, walmart, ... i like Fruit of the Earth because it does have a little preservative so you don't need to worry about spoilage....you can also buy brands w/o preservatives at your local health food store, brands like NOW and Lily of the Desert

Avoid the use of towels that are really light or really linty

Get thoroughly dry before going to sleep. Blow-dry if needed.

Don't fret and have fun!!

Ok thanks Ladies! I got Shea Moisture Organic African black soap deep conditioning shampoo and I already had the aloe vera from fruit of the earth. I also found some Softee Olive conditioning gel it has more of a conditioner consistency than a gel consistency. We'll see how it goes! wish me luck!

I actually did the retwist on my second shampoo i think it turned out pretty good. I used a mix of shea butter EVOO and aloe vera gel.
