    i am so glad someone posted this so that i don't have to feel embarressed wondering the same thing. In my twists i started adding pure shea butter and Oyin burnt sugar pomade every other day and my hair looked shiny, felt soft, and maybe a little greasy??? But i was jsut happy it didn't feel dry. SO i decided to DC with that same pure shea butter cuz i figured the more the better and i layered it on thick and heavy in addition what i normally use, Queen Helena's Mayonaise and Motions, ..........but my hair was rock hard and greasy not matter how much i rinsed. I have never used ACV but i rinsed with it the next day, it made it a little better but i my hair was still hard and greasy in some places.............a disaster! I don't know if it was using too much shea butter or what , i didn't know it was possible to use too much shea butter but i don't think i will use pure Shea butter to DC with again.........anyone see where i went wrong? Help a sister out please!

    Honesty, honestly it depends. There is a such thing as TOO much shea butter, but how much depends on your hair. Like for me, the amount of product that I put on my hair will probably be entirely too much for about 85% of people, but it works for me. I don't know anything about burnt sugar but since it is a pomade, probably using that combined with the shea was too much for your hair. And using shea everyday for some people can be too much (for me, not at all). But I would never slather it on my twists everyday. Maybe you need to find a spray on moisturizer that you can use everyday. The best kind are the ones you can create in your own sink by mixing up different combinations of things so maybe that is something you should think about doing as an alternative to all those heavy products every other day.

    Thanks GG! My hair seemed to love the shea butter as a moisturizer but i think i over killed it with out clarifying for the DC. I am thinking of using glycerine, i have been researching it and might use that as a moisturizer, i hope that is ok to use daily, guess i will find out lol!

    I know I am a little late but I just wanted to know if I moisturize my daily hair with glycerin and lanolin based products why the heck is my hair dry after a wash? Is it because the H2O is removing all the moisture out or what...I just don't get it.

    Ok I am new to natural. I've been natural for about 5 weeks now..lol. Rocking my TWA proudly. Ok what works for me is Qhemet Biology Alma and Olive Cream. For me oils and water based products don't work for me. Oil sits on top of my hair and water based products have to be reapplied three or more times per day to keep my hair semi moisturized. Qhemet biology I can use once every 5 days without reapplying and my hair is still moist on my wash day. I also like Cantu leave in

    I never use oil for that reason, just water-based moisturizers
