Although I have relaxed my hair 4 weeks ago, I’m really focused with retaining my length. That is why I have been rocking protective hairstyles, mostly cornrow styles. I have been slacking with moisturizing my hair, but it’s getting better.
For the past few weeks I have been using ORS products keep my hair healthy. I’m going to continue to use ORS products.
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.
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.
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 blog post about my washday. So here is a quick update. To make a long story short I’m still slacking!! Moisturize and seal every night is still a fail and there are some nights that I didn’t cover my hair with a scarf. If I keep doing this, then I will never retain my length. I’m hoping that I will do better this month. Ohw I almost forgot. There have been some improvements. I deep conditioning with heat every week and did a dust & destroy method every month.
Step 1 I started with the Mizani Botanifying Conditioning Shampoo. In sections of 3 I washed my hair twice. I like how my hair feels after shampooing. This product gives my hair a nice balance. After the wash I did a quick light conditioner treatment with Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Conditoner. When applying the conditioner I also finger detangle my hair. I left the conditioner in for about 10 minutes and then rinse it out.
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.
