Normally I would do a protein and clarifying treatment every 4 weeks, but my hair was in need of a protein treatment. It was time to get rid of the build-up of hair products. For the last two weeks I really focused on moisturizing my hair on a daily base. But I noticed that moisturizing too much makes my hair dull. Don’t get me wrong, I will keep on moisturizing, but I need to co-wash during the week to keep the balance.
In the weekend I was busy with some activities what led me to wash my hair during the week. Since I have relaxed my hair I have tried to leave my hair alone. Also I need to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment to strengthen my hair. This is a treatment that I need to do ASAP!
It’s that time again, the laziness is kicking in. Being 17 weeks post relaxer, I should be more consistent with washing my hair, but yeah here we are again.
STEP 1 | SHAMPOO
To wash my hair I used ORS Monoï Oil Fortifying Shampoo. In sections of two I washed my hair. Lately I have been washing my hair in two sections instead of four sections. Not that it’s a bad thing, but the switch is funny to me. During the wash I could feel that my hair was ‘over’ moisturized. How? Well I always take a view hair stands and stretch it. When a strand has an elastic feel to it (just like an elastic rubber) then my hair is ‘over’ moisturized. That’s a sign for me that I need to do a protein treatment.
Now that I am trying to keep up with my protein treatment, I notice that I am trying to listen to my hair. During the week, I notice that my hair felt week and I knew it was time for a protein treatment.
It is time for the monthly treatment … Protein time!!
Normally the first step will be starting with a conditioner treatment, but this time around I wanted to wash my hair first and then apply a protein conditioner. For the wash I used ORS Olive Oil Hydration Shampoo– in its pure form – In sections of four I washed my hair twice. I have been using this shampoo for over a month now – review coming soon –
