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 time around I have decided to combine my hair products empties and haul from the past few months. This way I can see whether I am making progress in denting my hair product stash. My last empties and last haul posts were both in November 2015; read here for empties and click here for the haul. I am hoping that in this post the empties products will be more than the haul products – that was I would have made progress in the right direction. This time I did it in video format – yipppeeee. Watch the video below.
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.
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.
I picked up a sachet of this product utterly on a whim – I haven’t used any Dark and Lovely products consistently in a long time, remember how they were the holy grail of hair products back in the day? at least where I am from. I used this product on my last wash day as an instant conditioner based on the instructions given.
