During the week my schedule was a bit off. For example, moisturizing my hair in the morning and not at night. Then there was some days I didn’t use a scarf at night. On the positive side I did more protective styles, like cornrow braid or cornrow twist my hair.
Pre poo treatment
It’s been a while, but it was definitely time for a pre-poo. I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil all over my hair and Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp. I did this treatment for an hour without heat. While I was applying the oil to my hair I noticed I had a lot of hair loss. The hair loss comes from not moisturizing my hair properly during the week.
It’s time for the creamy crack!!! I finally texlaxed my hair at 23 weeks post. I promised myself that I wasn’t going to stretch for more than 20 weeks, but hey, another 3 weeks doesn’t hurt anybody.
During the stretch I have seen positive progress with my hair. Mine new growth was nice and thick, but still manageable. The only downside were my nape and edges. I still haven’t find a regimen to grow them nicely – project saving my edges and nape is coming soon –
Last week I did a protein treatment with ORS Hair Mayonnaise and I also did s search & destroy method. I started real strong with my treatment and at the ending I was slacking off. After a protein treatment it’s important to deep condition your hair with a moisture based product. I don’t know why but I decided to do a quick treatment with TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner. This is a light conditioner – perfect to co-wash with, but not for a deep condition –. But oke my hair felt good after I was done with the routine. After a view days I noticed that my hair really needed some moisture and what did I do …. Nothing – ugh -. Oke nothing is a strong word, but I didn’t moisturize my hair daily as I should do.
So with this was routine I decided that I will only use moisture based product.
I started with a pre poo treatment using Organix Hydrating Macadamia Oil Conditioner. In small sections I applied the product to my hair. The product was left on my hair for 30 minutes without heat.
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-.
Late night washing … yes is that time again. Last night, after work, I decided to wash my hair. Sunday I wasn’t feeling well and wasn’t fit to wash my hair. I live in the Netherlands, and Monday it’s time for Real Housewives of Atlanta. So before I could watch the last part of the show I started with my routine.
I used my oil mix coconut x olive oil to apply on my hair. I warmed the oil with warm water. When I did the first part, I then applied my black castor x peppermint oil mix on my scalp. After applying the oil it was time for some ratchetness *big smile*.
After watching two reality shows it was time to rinse out the oils. It’s been a long time that I did a co-wash, so you know what time it is … co-wash !!!. TREsemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner is my fav product for a co-wash. In two sections I co-washed my hair. I really concentrated on my scalp and my problem areas.
Before applying the conditioner I used a t-shirt to dry my hair. In 4 sections I applied ORS HaiRepair Nourishing Conditioner. I almost forgot that I had this product. I used two packs because one simple isn’t enough. The oils that I mixed the product with; grape seed and peppermint oil. I deep condition with heat for 45 minutes and let my hair cool off for 15 minutes.
