The trial is over, the results are in and the winners are…. Ok, ok, let me back track before making the big announcemnent.
7 weeks ago, I started my testing of deep conditioners which I though would work on my hair. This was ultimately for pinning down my staple deep conditioners. This is one of my 2016 hair goals: to pin down my staple products. I have tried both moisturising and protein/moisture balanced deep conditioners. Most of the conditioners I had used before while my hair was still relaxed, I needed to see the response of the conditioner to my natural hair.
I have mentioned in the empties and haul posts that my hair product stash is filled to the brim with instant conditioner and I am running low on deep conditioners. However, I am not ready to commit yet on my staple deep conditioners for this natural journey that I have now embarked on. Enter…..sachets! I am a fan of sachets because they give me a chance to trial a product out without the commitment of buying the full size product. They are such a win-win item.
I took down my weave this past weekend and gave my hair a much needed wash. After the horrendous experience I had the last time I took down a weave, I knew I had to make some changes this time around. On Friday night, I was lucky enough to have someone to help me with the removal of the weave – and my helper was super gentle, so that process was seamless. However, I did have parts of my hair that were intertwined with the fake hair that I had to gently separate.
Hey everybody! We are officially half way through the year *whoop*
I don’t have a monthly favourites post for this month. I haven’t been doing much to my hair or to my face for any one product to stand out as a winner. So instead I have a list of my favourite products.
Here are my top 5 haircare products, those that I would take on a deserted island if I ever get stranded *how would I find time to pack hair care stuff if I was going to be deserted on an island* I hear you ask. OK, let’s start again; these are the products that I will climb the highest mountain, swim the deepest most shark infested ocean to find. For real, for real: these are my faves, I use them regularly and they always give me good and consistent results – I swear by them and recommend them to anyone who cares to listen.
Hey everyone! Since the first cold front hit us towards the end of last week, I am now declaring it officially winter! Mind you, us on the coast had only a morning of cool-er weather, however, I think it is downhill from here on out. Bring on the scarves and socks.
I have decided to get my hair into a protective style, I have worn it loose for 5 weeks now since my last relaxer. I loved having it out, but it is time to get it hidden for a few weeks. I clarified my hair and did a protein treatment to get my hair extra clean and strong before my PS. Here is how it went:
Hello everybody! I hope you are having a great start to your week!
On Monday evening I had my wash day which was preceded by undoing the cornrows which I have been wearing under my wig for the past 4 weeks. The undoing and detangling part took me 2 hours, I really wanted to get rid of all the shed hair, I did not want a tangled, matted mess like I had previously. I used the Aunt Jackies Knot on my Watch Instant Detangling Therapy which I applied all over the cornrows, then I mixed castor, coconut and peppermint oil and applied that onto the cornrows. I gently took down the cornrows, I tried finger detangling as I went along. Once all my hair was free, I detangled thoroughly first with my fingers then with a wide tooth comb, I did this in sections.
