  6. I found your YouTube channel two days ago and now I am on a mission for healthier growing natural hair. I have two questions about the hair regime.
    1. Do I wash and deep condition weekly with co-washing in between as needed?
    2. During the monthly protein and hot oil treatments do I wash and deep condition as usual?
    PLEASE HELP ME!!!!

    1. Thanks for finding our channel.
      To answer #1. I wash and deep condition weekly. If during the week, I feel that I need more moisture, I cowash.

      The answer to #2 is yes. When using protein treatment, I make sure to do a moisture deep conditioning.
