Hey Guys!! So as the title suggests, I’ve been off my A game when it comes it comes to my hair care. Recently, I’ve gone longer than usual between my washes and it hasn’t been fun. My hair was dry and began to break so I needed to do something quick to reverse the damage.
Now, the time frame between this wash and my last one was about a week and a half. I know some naturals can go longer but my hair is fragile and requires regular cleansing. So this wash day I decided to bring out the big guns.
The day before, I did a simple pre-poo by conditioning my damp air with some jojoba oil. Since it was Sunday and I had to go to the church house, I made two simple flat twists until I had time to wash.
When it came down to it, I decided to do a protein treatment prior to my wash. The mix consisted of 1/2 of an avacado, 1 egg, 2 tbsp of olive oil, and 1 tbsp of honey. I mix it all in a blender then part my hair into 4 sections and coat each one with the mix. I cover it with a plastic cap and let it sit for 20 minutes then rinse.
I washed and conditioned with Shea Moisture’s Jamaican Black Castor Oil shampoo and conditioner. I tried to follow up with my favorite deep conditioner but I realized at the last minute that I ran out so I had to use one that was around the house. That was a mistake and I’ll explain why in another post.
Moving on…I did the best I could with what I had and just went on to the LOC method to condition and set my curls. I recently purchased a Denman brush and it’s really made a difference and I absolutely love it. I’ll also explain my experience with this tool in another post.
I wasn’t completely satisfied with the end result, but I think the DC I used is to blame so better luck next time. But at least I cleansed my hair and shook it back to life, and that was the ultimate goal. Things ended up getting better later in the week with my co-wash anyway. Well, talk to you later. Deuces!!
