Starting over with my hair journey!
It was time for a change! With my 30th birthday I wanted to cut my hair, but I didn’t. As the months passed by and I saw more pictures of other ladies with a short hairstyle, I became more and more in love with the style.
Since I started my hair journey I have tried different types of oils.
Here is a list of oils that I used.
- Africa best: carrot tea tree oil (I’m making my own oil mixes)
- Almond oil
- Amla oil
- Castor oil
- Coconut oil
- Jojoba oil (don’t like it for sealing)
- Lavender oil (don’t see any benefits)
- Peppermint oil
- Rosemary oil
- Tea tree oil (don’t see any benefits)
- Vatika coconut Oil (I don’t use it anymore because I use pure coconut oil)
In November I tried to pre-poo my hair weekly. During my hair journey I used this method before but I wasn’t regularly. I have pre-pooed with a light conditioner and only oils before.
Pre-poo (preshampoo treatment) is a treatment what you before shampooing your hair.
There are different ways to pre-poo your hair. You can use
- an oil or a mixture of oils
- a ‘light weight’ conditioner
That moment that you planned your day for your wash routine anddd then you become lazy -_- What it happened was * lool *. I wanted to do ‘hard’ protein treatment with Aphogee two-step protein treatment, record my search destroy method and do a length check. Eeuhmm well it didn’t go as planned.
Last week I flat ironed my hair for an family occasion that I went to. Euuhmm I did something bad. I flat ironed my hair again, Sunday before I went to church. I’m slacking .. big time.
Before the wash I did a search and destroy method. This is a method to get rid of split ends. So far I’m doing a good job, doing this method monthly J. One of myhair problems is the fact that I have thin ends, so I’m taking baby step to solve it.
In February I did some shopping and I tried some products out. In March I used Mizani Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo for my weekly wash.
What does the product say?
This gentle daily shampoo, formulated with an aromatic blend of botanicals, replenishing lost moisture to the hair. Hydrating Aloe Extracts binds moisture to the hair while Panthenol helps repair damage and strengthen against split ends. Leave hair hydrated and manageable.
Directions: Massage a generous amount into wet hair, lather and rinse thoroughly. Repeat if necessary.
How does the product work?
The shampoo has a weird scent to it. I can’t really explain it. For someone who is sensitive, it can maybe turn you off. First time using this shampoo I was surprised. This shampoo really does what is says. With my first wash I had a owh snap reaction, because my hair felt stiff, but when I applied the shampoo for the second wash my hair felt soft and bouncy. For cleaning the hair one wash was enough.
