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-.
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 was all about heat this washing routine. I’m planning to use heat (a hooded dryer or a steamer) regularly because of the cold weather. My hair had a good week. Almost every morning I moisturized with ORS HAIRepair Intense Moisture Crème. Why in the morning. Well I was lazy to moisturize my hair in the evening.
I started with a pre-poo oil treatment. I made a new oil mixture and I’m loving it – post about the mix coming soon – . In four sections I applied the oil. I really focused on my ends. I still suffering from split ends, it’s driving me CRAZY!! For some stimulation I applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Peppermint oil on my scalp. When applying the oil I massage my scalp. – when I was massaging my scalp I could feel my lovely new growth – I used a hooded dryer for a hour.
