Last week I did a protein treatment with ORS Hair Mayonnaise and I also did s search & destroy method. I started real strong with my treatment and at the ending I was slacking off. After a protein treatment it’s important to deep condition your hair with a moisture based product. I don’t know why but I decided to do a quick treatment with TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. This is a light conditioner – perfect to co-wash with, but not for a deep condition –. But oke my hair felt good after I was done with the routine. After a view days I noticed that my hair really needed some moisture and what did I do …. Nothing – ugh -. Oke nothing is a strong word, but I didn’t moisturize my hair daily as I should do.
So with this was routine I decided that I will only use moisture based product.
I started with a pre poo treatment using Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Conditioner. In small sections I applied the product to my hair. The product was left on my hair for 30 minutes without heat.
This past week’s my focused has mainly been on keeping my hair moisturized. But keeping your proteinbalance is also important. The last time I deed a protein treatment was in February – 7 weeks ago – My goal is to do a protein treatment every 4 weeks, because my hair really needs it.
In sections of four I washed my hair twice with Salerm Protein Shampoo. This shampoo is really protein based. After washing my hair felt rough that is why I used TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner to bring back the moisture and softness. I love love this product as a co-wash. It has amazing slip and makes my hair soft. I applied the product to my hair and let it sit for 5 minutes – a quick conditioning treatment-.
Last week I did a search and destroy method. I really took my time because of the split ends. On the positive note my hair was doing well during the week. I moisturized when it was needed and my hair was protected during night time – sleeping with a scarf – . As the week went by I started to get lazy, but overall I’m happy because my hair was soft and moisturized.
At the moment I’m 7 weeks post relaxer
Pre poo treatment
For the pre poo I used Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp and hair. I wanted to do the Hairlista Caster oil challenge, but laziness got in the way. Now I’m doing my own little challenge by using only Castor oil for the treatment. For almost 2 hours I let the oil sit.
At this moment I’m 19 weeks post and I am happy with my new growth. I can still manage. I said that I will relax my hair when I reach 20 weeks post, but I first want to do a protein treatment to prep my hair for a relaxer. During the week my nape suffered from dryness. I would moisturize at night, but in the morning it was still dry – I need to find a remedy for my nape -.
Pre poo treatment
For the treatment I used the oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Coconut Oil) for the scalp and (Grape seed x Sesame seed x Coconut oil) for the hair. Before applying the oils I warmed it up with hot water. – I never use a microwave to warm up oils – for an hour I let the oils sit on my hair.
The last couple week I have been concentrating with getting rid of my split ends. In my recent post I mentioned that I need to take a break with using a flat iron on my hair. I’m really suffering from long split ends. My goals for this year is to reach BSL (Bra Strap Length), but first my main focus is retaining my length.
At this moment I’m 17 weeks post. I planned to texlaxed my hair at 20 weeks post.
PRE POO TREATMENT
More and more and loving doing a pre poo treatment with oils. In sections of four I applied an oil mix (Grape seed x Sesame seed x Coconut oil) to the length of my hair, concentration on my ends. For my scalp I used a different oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor x Coconut oil). I let the oils sit on my hair for about an hour.
Last week Saturday I flat ironed my hair. I noticed when my hair is straight I really don’t moisturize my hair. That a big no no, but I do it every time. I need to find a light moisturizer to keep my hair healthy when it’s straight.
Before the pre poo treatment I make sure that my hair is detangled. During detangling there was a lot of hair lost. That’s what I get for not moisturizing my hair the whole week. – my hair is really sensitive when I don’t moisturize – I started the treatment with applying my oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor x Peppermint Oil) on the scalp. In sections of 4 I gently massaged the oil on my scalp –this moment is really relaxing – After that I applied Organix Pomegranate Green Tea Conditioner on the rest of my hair. This time I decided to use my steamer for my pre poo treatment. Woei after steaming my scalp was sensitive. I think I applied too much of my oil mix, because the peppermint was on fire!! I’m really loving the steamer.
