After cowashing, I liberally applied the product to my damp hair (in sections), wore plastic caps and left the hair too deepcondition. I had other things to do so I left it on for 5hrs. Then the wahala came: Rinsing was annoying! I had to do another co-wash with lots of conditioner to get the stuff off my hair! After washing it I was too tired to do anything to it so I applied my leave in and went to bed.
In the morning I took down each individul braid, applied coconut oil and Shea butter to the ends( Shea b. from the kinkyapothecary. My hair loves that stuff!)
- Man-shanu has slip so application was easy.
- My ends were really dry after taking down old twists but this morning I noticed how soft and well behaved my ends are. No matting and sectioning was easy (you know difficult tightly coiled hair gets when the ends are dry)
- For want of a better description my hair strands seem thicker. For last two weeks I noticed my hair breaking more than usual . Even after deep conditioning ,my hair still felt dry. The first day after wash-day was great but by the third day I noticed that my hair (especially the ends) were really dry. Anyways today I could count the number of stands I saw after finger combing. So my Fulani classmates might just be right when they say it reduces breakage.
- Unlike most of the deep conditioners I have used, man-shanu does not drip all over. It sticks to the hair like...butter:)
I'll use it for a prepoo treatment next and do a review. This wont be anytime soon sha...
I put the product in a bowl with a cover and stored it in the fridge. It might get hard but when you take it out and leave it for sometime it'll return to its normal consistensy
