Okay, I thought I would discuss how to properly wash your hair. I've had many e-mails asking what I use to make my hair look good, but it's not only the products. It's also the way you wash and how much product you use.

Step 1: Shampooing
I first start by rinsing my hair for three minutes with lukewarm water to clean my hair of any dirt. I then apply a quarter size amount of shampoo (Creme of Nature or Nexxus Therappe) into my palm and distribute it onto my hair. I use quarter size amounts until my whole head has shampoo. I massage my scalp gently and rinse with lukewarm, not cold, water.

Step 2: Conditioning
I part my hair in four sections as if I were applying a relaxer and apply the conditioner (Suave Humectant or Nexxus Hydra Sleek) to each section in 1/2 inch subsections. I apply it to my roots first and then, when I'm done, I apply it to my hair and my ends. I make sure to add a little bit more conditioner to my ends since they're fragile. After five minutes, I rinse with lukewarm water.

Step 3: Deep Conditioning
After rinsing out the conditioner, I apply the deep conditioner (ORS Replenishing Pak) in the same fashion. I then put a plastic cap on and sit under a dryer for fifteen minutes. When my hair is really feeling dry, I'll stay for twenty five. Anyway, when time's up, I rinse out the deep conditioner with cold water.

Step 4: Towel Dry And Style
I use a towel to squeeze excess water out my hair. After, I apply a leave-in/serum and either air dry or roller set my hair. You can also do a flexi-rod set, which is a great protective style.

After I was my hair I wash my hair instead of usinh a towel I use like a t shirt, it reduces the fly-aways and frizz

Isn't it bad to use a towel to dry you're hair? I read that somewhere.
