You mentioned that you use Kinky Curly Knot Today and end papers to reset your hair at night. Do you also spritz your hair with water or do you apply the Knot Today onto dry hair? In your past posts you stated that you sprayed your hair with water, however in recent posts you didn't mention whether this was still a part of your routine. Thanks for all of your hair advice it is truly helpful.I do both. Sometimes I use Knot Today on dry hair and sometimes I dilute it in a spray bottle. I smooth my hair and if it needs more moisture, I will add a little leave in or a little spray. It depends on how my hair feels. Smoothing will detect rough areas and areas that need moisture. It's not an exact science. It's intuitive and based on how my hair feels that day.
I also rotate with whatever products I have in stock for my nightly resets. Right now it's Knot Today, Carol's Daughter Hair Milk, diluted Suave Almond and Shea Butter, diluted Aussie Moist. If I feel like my hair needs it, I spray with Evian facial Spray, Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave in or diluted conditioner in a spray bottle. If I feel like it, I seal my ends with an oil or shea butter. I also like to baggy my roller set ends to lock in moisture. I don't use water when I baggy so it's an either or deal, never both because then my hair would never dry with the added water. I get slightly better results when I use the diluted conditioner mix to reset, but if I have to wake up early and I need my hair to be I dry, I skip the spray bottles and just use a leave in and maybe an oil. Sometimes, if my hair feels moisturized enough, I just add an oil with no leave in.
