I don’t know why I EVER stopped taking care of my hair. It feels amazing to spend time on it. Taking care of it is an extension of taking care of me! Here’s a starting pic of Diva(my hair lol):
I didn’t have a clarifying shampoo and my hair and my hair budget said “Uh…no m’am”. Luckily,I did have apple cider vinegar and it clarifies when used as a rinse so I did that. I sprayed plenty of it on Diva because I had literally piled on the hair gel when styling. I left the rinse in each section for a few minutes while I went section by section(starting from the back) shampooing. This week’s shampoo of choice was Creme of Nature w/Argan Oil from Morocco sulfate free shampoo. It gives my hair moisture and shine. Can’t go wrong with that!
I only shampooed once and only used shampoo in the scalp not the entire length of the hair. I used APHOGEE 2 Minute Reconstructor but didn’t detangle. I watched television for half an hour while letting the conditioner sit with a conditioner cap on. I washed it out and applied Tresemmme Moisture Rich conditioner before detangling. That conditioner is really an instant one, so I detangled, left it on for 5 minutes and washed that out. My hair felt brand friggin’ new! YES,GAWD!!!
I spent twenty minutes just touching my hair. It had not felt this soft in so long and the breakage was already less from that one was session. There was only a bit in the comb. Even my rough patch was kind of soft (its still bratty,though). Once I stopped making love to my hair,I put in my Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner as a leave in. You only need a dime size amount but I used a quarter size just because I felt more comfortable with it. I’m going to tell you right now, Shea Moisture is a little on the expensive side ($11.99 for a 13oz bottle) so I don’t suggest using it all willy nilly.
My favorite part of wash day is LOC. Not sure why but,I enjoy putting my EVOO in it because it makes my hair shiny and soft. For my creme,I chose Creme of Nature w/ Argan Oil from Morocco Oil Moisturizer. Its pretty thick and once again less is more,especially if you don’t have the dime! My hair was still damp so I let it air dry for a few hours and then twisted it up.I just can’t stay away fron my ECO Styler gel but I didn’t pile it on. I didn’t need to because the twists came out pretty darn good.
I left those twists in for three days and when I took them out,they weren’t crunchy but very FIERCE! I didn’t put any additional product in it because it was prettyuch everything I wanted it to be, except for my twists in the back. The hair I describe as my “rough patch”, is very short and super kinky but I’ll be tackling that real soon.
These are pics from day three& four of my twist-out. All I did to keep it tight and keep it right was pineapple and scarf it at night,then fluff a little in the morning.
