I feel like I have neglected the hair portion of my blog. It’s just that there is not much interesting happening with my hair, it is literally the same ol’ story everyday. Nothing much has changed to my routine, my monthly hair updates are helping to keep my goals in check. My hair needed some TLC over the weekend, I hadn’t done a proper wash day in 2 weeks. I filmed a video of my entire wash day to show how I do the steps that I do and some of the products that I use.
This is my last wash day post for the year. It was much of the same as my previous ones. I am so here for leaving my hair as it is and not messing with it. I want to let it flourish by itself. Of course while doing the healthy hair care practices like deep conditioning, moisturising and sealing etc. I did about 3 moisture and sealing sessions for my hair the past week and it does not feel dry at all in between, so yay to my M&S products.
This week I decided to leave my hair as it is and let it shine in its shrinkage glory. Just for a bit of trendiness, I went for the Madiba part again. It was more defined this time around because I let my hair dry in the ‘position’ overnight. My wash day was short as usual and I am still trying out my sachet conditioners. Here is how it went down…
My first full week of being natural flew by, my ‘twist out’ from last week lasted me 2 days. On Friday my hair had shrunken back slightly and it wasn’t so stretched, I didn’t mind it though. In terms of dryness, I moisturised and sealed 4 times during the week, I found that my hair did not lose a lot of moisture. This is in contrary to what a lot of people with my type of hair usually say about their hair. I guess I have found the right products for my hair and also Durban humidity is helping me out in that regard. On the weekend, I did my whole moisturising and sealing routine and I decided to embrace shrinkage and wear my hair with a young Madiba part. I liked this look, I plan to perfect it soon.
To be honest, I planned my big chop. As I was counting my weeks post relaxer, I realised that on my birthday I will be exactly 30 weeks post relaxer and it was my 30th birthday – that felt like the right time to do it. I went on my birthday weekend away armed with my hair scissors and a few hair products for post big chop maintenance that would tide me over till I got back home.
