2016.05.14 HAIR PRODUCTS

For the last two weeks I have been wearing my wig as a protective style. I’m trying to leave my hair alone and protect it from the weather. So far I’m holding on. Before I started with the protective style I did a protein treatment, two weeks ago, to strengthen my hair. I planned to wear my wig for another 3 weeks – I hope I can manage, after a while I miss my hair – .


At this moment I’m 18 weeks post relaxer 

IMG_2527Pre-poo treatment
For a while I wanted to do a pre-poo ‘oil’ treatment with my steamer. I applied vitamin E oil mixed with a little bit of Jojoba oil all over my hair and scalp. Normally I would use Castor or Coconut oil, but I wanted to try something different. I used the Huetiful Hair Steamer for the treatment. After the treatment the front of my hair felt soft, but the back felt a bit stiff – weird -, I need to play with using Vitamin E oil for a pre-poo treatment-.

wash day January 23

Since my relaxer I haven’t done a protein treatment – what am I thinking – for this routine I planned to do a ‘hard’ protein treatment … but I got lazy and switched my routine. Next week doing a protein treatment is a must!!!


Search and Destroy Method: while I was detangling my hair I notice some split ends – say no to split ends –. So I decided to do a search and destroy method.

Step 1
For the wash I used Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. The love for this shampoo is too much!! In sections of four I shampooed my hair, twice. After the wash I wrapped my hair with a t-shirt to towel dry.

2915.11.14 wash routine

The cold weather is messing up my hair, like really. I told myself to do more protective styles, but I’m lacking.

My hair felt really rough so I needed a good moisture treatment


Step 1 | Pre Poo treatment
It’s been a while that I did a pre poo treatment. A pre poo treatment always helps me to get back shine. I applied my Pre Poo oil mix (Jamaican Black Castor oil x Olive oil x 5 drops of Rosemary oil) to each section. I really concentrated on my ends, because it really needed the extra love. I let the oil sit for an hour without heat.

Wash Day | November 8!

2015.11.08 wash day

Lately my schedule for my wash routine has been messed up. I didn’t want to wash my hair, but I HAD to. My hair was screaming for a wash. I had a b-day dinner to attend to, so there wasn’t enough time for a “take it easy wash routine”. So I did a quick wash.


 

Wash
In four sections I shampooed my hair with Mizani Puriphying Shampoo. I can’t remember the last time I clarified my hair, but I needed to remove all the product from the last past weeks. I washed my hair twice and wrapped my hair with a cotton t-shirt. I’m still working on minimalizing the hair loss during my wash. I need to do a research how I can go about it.

Clarifying – protein treatment

It’s been 4 weeks now that I texlaxed my hair. Since July 18, I haven’t done a protein treatment. So you know what time it is.

Maybe you have notice, but the brand of choice for my wash routine has been Mizani. I bought a view products that I wanted to try out. For this was routine I used Mizani Puriphying Shampoo – to clarify – and Kerafuse Intense Strengthening Treatment – for protein – This was my first time using the Kerafuse Treatment.


 

1 -> in sections of four I shampooed my hair. Mind you it has been two weeks that I haven’t washed my hair – my hair was screaming for a wash -. Although It’s been a while that I washed my hair, I was still happy, because the hair loss was minimal.

2 -> with a cotton t-shirt I blot my hair. The Kerafuse Treatment has funny texture. It’s like a thick paste. Because it was the first using the product I didn’t know how much to apply. So I didn’t go overboard and used just enough product to cover my hair with it. The directions tells u to sit under a dryer for 10 minutes and I listened. I used my hooded dryer for 10 minutes.

I’m still on my stretch. The plan was to relax my hair last Sunday. Well I’m still debating if I need to relax my hair. This is so funny, because if have never been in this situation that I didn’t know when I should relax.

It’s been a while but I missed pre pooing my hair before a wash. I applied Coconut oil on my hair and Jamaican Black Castor oil on my scalp. After an hour pre pooing without heat, it was time to wash my hair.
