Saturday 2 December
Let the drama continue! The laziness is kicking in. For the last two days the before the wash routine I have been sleeping without a scarf. For me it is a must to protect my hair with a satin scarf. So please, can anybody ask me ‘why I’m doing the opposite?’ When in was detangling my hair I was crying from the inside, because of my hair loss.
Saturday 25 November
This week I have been focusing on protecting my hair against the cold weather. Sometimes it sucks living in the Netherlands, it was a rainy week. To keep it simple, I styled my hair in two cornrows.
STEP 1 | PRE-POO
To give my wash routine a boost I decided to do an oil treatment. I warmed up my Coconut oil and in sections of four I applied the oil to my hair and scalp. Started at the end and worked my way on up. I went a little overboard with the oil but it got the job done! I let the oil sit on my hair for 30 minutes without using heat.
11 weeks post relaxer
I don’t know why I always do this, but after a certain period of stretching my relaxer, I get ‘extreme’ lazy. It’s really bad! In the month June I was active with keeping my hair healthy with protective styles. But the last two weeks, it’s been really bad. I haven’t been moisturizing on a daily base or washing my hair weekly. So because of that I have been dealing with breakage like no other.
I got 8 weeks to go before I’m going to relax my hair. So I’m going to do a protective style challenge. For the coming 8 weeks I will be rocking my hair in cornrows or switch to my wigs.
relaxed hair aka texlaxed hair
Since my relaxer I noticed more hair falling out than normal – shedding & breakage – . Yeah shedding is normal, but this last week it was too much for my liking and the breakage was crazy. I know I need to step up with the protein treatment.
Before washing my hair I started with an oil treatment. I made a mix of Coconut oil with 1 tps. Olive oil. The oil was applied all over my hair and scalp. I love using an oil for my pre-poos. I did this treatment more than 2 hours.
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.
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.
