How should I wash after exercising or sweating?

How do I use #19 Honey Bee as an overnight deep treatment? Do I continue in the morning with #9 Trees or start over with shampoo?

#19 Honey Bee is made to be used as the first part of a 2-part deep treatment on wet, clean, washed hair. Never use #19 on dry/not-wet hair (so never pre-treat with #19); only use on wet hair, and always follow #19 with #9 Trees in the same session. Use 2 tbsp or more twice a week […]

How often should I switch conditioners and how long should I use each one?

There are no numbers carved in stone for this; you need to listen to your hair for each of the conditioners, not just randomly switch for no particular reason. When you switch too often the conditioner doesn’t have enough time to work. Use one conditioner until you learn how to tell if it’s taken. Your […]

Is #9 Trees ok to use as a re-treat after using it in the shower?

Yes, but it will only be ok until the hair tires of it; then it won’t like it anymore as a re-treat. Hair that doesn’t have this situation doesn’t crave it. Using it too much #9 Trees will simply not work out well, but if you need it your hair will like it.

Do I pre-treat my whole head, including my bangs?

Some of you are applying way too much pre-treat, and too high up, not knowing why we do it. The idea is to end up with an even texture all over, adding nutrients where wear has taken place (usually old ends, and maybe a bit on the longer surfaces if needed). Definitely do not pre-treat indiscriminately […]

Am I required to use specific types of Horn Combs for specific jobs? Can I comb through my hair with any of the combs or do I need to use a certain type?

Do I pre-treat from top to bottom, or from bottom to top? What about re-treat?

You should be pre-treating (that’s the overnight one on dry hair, where you wash as usual in the morning) from the bottom up by working in your pre-treat product – massaging upwards, and then smoothing in a downward motion, layering with water. Focus on needy areas and ends (which are always needy) first and go up as […]

Do I need to rinse out my pre-treat before Scritching and #18-ing in the morning?

No, you don’t need to rinse out your pre-treat before #18-ing. It is usually dried by morning and doesn’t goop the scalp at all. The coast should be clear for a clean application of #18, and any sweat is OK to Scritch over.

Do I need to follow the ‘blanching’ with a cool rinse?

No, that’s only with vegetables and macaroni! We have a perfectly-timed product closure time and effects that other (build-up) products need to be forced into. Just say “NO” to cool rinses! It is not recommended as we get plenty of shine without it. And no, doing it anyway (the ‘more is better’ approach) will not […]

Should I pile my hair on top of my head when I shampoo?

No! Please! We’re not shooting drugstore shampoo commercials here, so let’s look at this logically: this is done for show on TV. It doesn’t work for long hair; it’s what shorthairs do. If you do wash this way, your hair will tangle badly, so please don’t stack the hair when you shampoo (or condition for […]
