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.

2014.12.13 WASH DAY

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.


Step 1

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.

2014.11.23 WASHDAY

It was all about heat this washing routine. I’m planning to use heat (a hooded dryer or a steamer) regularly because of the cold weather. My hair had a good week. Almost every morning I moisturized with ORS HAIRepair Intense Moisture Crème. Why in the morning. Well I was lazy to moisturize my hair in the evening.


Step 1

I started with a pre-poo oil treatment. I made a new oil mixture and I’m loving it – post about the mix coming soon – . In four sections I applied the oil. I really focused on my ends. I still suffering from split ends, it’s driving me CRAZY!! For some stimulation I applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Peppermint oil on my scalp. When applying the oil I massage my scalp. – when I was massaging my scalp I could feel my lovely new growth –  I used a hooded dryer for a hour.

PRODUCTS 18.10.2014

Step 1
For my wash treatment I started with a pre-poo treatment. I used two different oils. On my left side I applies Sesame seed oil and on the right side my Coconut oil. Why 2 different oils?? I’m experimenting with the Sesame seed oil. On my scalp I applied Jamaican Black Castor oil x peppermint oil.

I was busy with cleaning my room and other stuff, so I left the treatment on my hair for about 2 hours. The peppermint oil was in full effect. I love the tingle ling feeling.

Step 2
I washed my hair with Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo. I wished my love for the conditioner was the same as for the shampoo. But this shampoo is not the business for me. But why did you use it? My goal is to finish my products. The reason I don’t like this shampoo is because there is no slip.

2014-06-01 WASHDAY

Saturday evening I went to a birthday party and I new I was fucked for the next day. I really wanted to wash my hair before I went to church, because my hair was DEAD!!! So I decided to start my wash routine at night.

[1] Before I went to bed. I decided to do a pre-poo treatment overnight. Because of the Hairlista Coconut Challenge I used Coconut oil on my hair and applied an oil mix (black castor oil x peppermint oil) on my scalp.  I warmed the coconut oil with my hand, that’s the easy way.

– I love me some pre poo treatment. In the morning my hair was so shiny and moist –
