My monthly regimen is a mess. As always I can’t remember when I use a clarifying shampoo for my wash. I knew it was that time again, but I didn’t want to clarify my hair – strange right– I was in battle with myself, because I really wanted to use a moisturized shampoo, but it was time to clarify.
The first step was washing my hair with ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo for a light clarify treatment. Beside this shampoo I really don’t have a ‘legit’ clarifying shampoo – shopping soon 😉 –
I washed my hair once with the product and then followed up with Mizani Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo. I really like the texture of the Mizani Shampoo. During the wash I could easily finger detangle my hair and my hair was so soft.
This past week’s my focused has mainly been on keeping my hair moisturized. But keeping your protein balance 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.
It’s been a long time that I wrote a post about my washday, but don’t worry I’m back. This couple of weeks has been a bit of a struggle with my hair. The struggle are the hair loss and split ends. I have been lazy with moisturizing my hair at night and I notice that my hair reacts immediately to that – dry hair means breakage –
For the routine I wanted to start with a pre-poo treatment, but I changed my mind – laziness -. In two section I washed my hair using Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. I think it’s my third time using this shampoo and I like the fact that is has a milky texture and I doesn’t dry my hair out. My hair feels good after the wash. It’s bouncy and I can easily glide my finger through my hair.
