I’m a product junkie so I had to try this product out. Every week I will post a video about my first impression.

    WASH DAYThat 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.

    Step 1
    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.

    It’s been tooo long !!! My laziness is getting worse and it shows. My hair is screaming for some TLC. Last week I haven’t been moisturizing each night and sleeping with a scarf. I have noticed that my hair is really weak, so I decided it was time for a protein treatment and I’m also planning to relax my hair… soon. Thinking about it ‘when was my last protein treatment?’ I had to look it up ‘ohw snap .. the last time was in December ’13’.  My goal is once a month – shame on me –

    After pre-poo

    PRE-POO

    I started off with an oil treatment as my pre-poo. I used Jamaican Black Castor mixed with peppermint oil on the scalp. In section I massaged the oil on the scalp. I made sure that I gave my problems are some extra love. – I will write an article about my problems areas and how I take care of it- . when I was done with my scalp, it was time to apply my pre-poo oil mix (Coconut Oil x Olive Oil) on the hair. I covered my hair with a plastic bag and on top of that I placed a scarf for some heat.

    I pre-poo for about 2 hours, I didn’t mean to. I was Cinderella for the day, so I had to cook diner for the family.

    Wish ‘hair products’ list

    Last year I made a list for myself about products that I wanted to try out. Unfortunately I’m a product junkie. I am always buying stuff and the bad thing is some I don’t even use. So the list was really helpful for me.

    My list in 2013

    The products that I bought:
    –          Salerm Protein Shampoo
    –          Creme of Nature Moisture Extreme conditioner
    –          Mane N Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner
    –          Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine leave-in
    –          Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter
    –          Jamaican Black Caster Oil

    I’m in love with some of the products, and when I say in love … ow boy I’m  hooked, lool. My number one love is the Elasta QP Olive Oil Mango Butter. This creme really .. really helped me.  I will do a review about it. And the second place goes to …….. Creme of Nature Moisture Extreme Conditioner. This conditoner … what!! Lool. I’m so glad that I found this conditioner.

    From all the products that I purchased I’m not sure if I will buy Mane N Tail and Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine leave-in again.

    So I finally decided to wash my hair. What I’m doing lately is really really bad. On February 9th I took down my u-part wig. It was two weeks already and my edges needed a break. But I was sooo tired that I really didn’t had the energy to go and wash my hair. So I told myself I will do it on Monday, after work * side eye *.

    Step 1

    The last time I clarify my hair was in September. I need to step my game up, but yeah it’s time to clarify my hair. For this routine I used ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo. I sectioned my hair in 8 parts. Working in parts works for me. after the wash my hair was rough, this shampoo really clarifies. When I was done washing I applied Redken Real Control Conditioner for some boost. I’m starting to like this conditioner. It’s a light weight conditioner so I left in for 5 minutes.

    For about 6 minutes I t-shirt dried my hair. In the mean time I mixed my conditioner with some oils (Creme of Nature Professional Moisture Extreme Conditioner with castor, grape seed, peppermint, rosemary oil and glycerine). I deep conditioned for 45 minutes with a hooded dryer. When I’m done conditioning I let my hair cool off for 5 minutes. This conditioner is definitely a K E E P E R.

    Step 3

    I always start late with my routine, I don’t know why I always do that. In the evening I had a date with my girlfriends. I applied Garnier Fructis Nutri repair 3 leave-in  all over my hair and without detangling my hair I put it in a high bun and I was ready to go. I didn’t use a lot of product because the next day I planned to flat iron my hair.

    Washing your hair is always a good thing. I’m 18 weeks post and  I love how my new growth feels.

    2013.11.17 wash dayStep [1]
    Before putting any product on my hair, I start with detangling my hair in four sections. After detangling my hair I began with a pre-poo aka hot oil treatment. I applied my oil mix (castor + olive oil) all over my hair and scalp. After that I cover my hair with a plastic bag and sit under the dryer for 30 minutes. After the treatment my hair is so shiny. I did notice a difference with my last pre-poo. This time my hair was a bit stiff.  I need to keep an eye on that.
