5 Steps to Super Soft, Healthy Hair

I'm a foodie at heart, so the best way I could think to describe the process is like this...
It's like a coconut oil sandwich stuffed with a protein conditioner and a moisturizing deep conditioner.

Yes, I'm serious!! 

I've done this twice. The first time I bet it all on science and hoped for the best. But after getting the same awesome results a second time, I just had to share!! My entire method is a bit time-consuming so
 I've broken it down into five easy steps for achieving uber soft, moisturized, healthy hair:

Step 1: Start with a coconut oil pre-poo under a plastic cap for 1-2 hours (or under the dryer for 15-30 minutes).

Step 2: After shampooing, apply ApHogee Keratin 2-Minute Reconstructor (this is a light protein conditioner).

Step 3: Top the ApHogee conditioner with a deep (moisturizing) conditioner. Cover with a plastic cap for 1-2 hours (or sit under the dryer for 30 minutes).

Step 4: Detangle with a wide-toothed comb then rinse thoroughly. 
Step 5: Apply coconut oil liberally to each section prior to applying your leave-in conditioner.
I'm a huge fan of low-maintenance or "protective" styling. After step 5, I'll apply my finishing products then set my hair in chunky twists. I'll leave the twists in until the following week or I'll take them out and rock a twist-out for a few days. By allowing my hair to air dry in twists, I'm helping lock in the moisture from the products. You'll probably achieve the best results with this method by setting your hair in the protective style of your choice.
I usually pull my twists into a high, messy bun.
I could go into the science behind this method, but I don't want to bore you. Bottom line, this coconut oil sandwich thing works GREAT!
