I haven’t done one of these hair products haul and empties posts in a while because honestly the movements in my hair products stash haven’t been that interesting. I decided that in 2016 I will pin down my staple products, and I achieved that goal. Thus, this meant that I really didn’t buy that many new products and those that I did buy were mostly replacements. However, I have finally come to a point where I have finished quite a number of products that can constitute a meaty empties post. If you want to see which products I have finished, which I will be replacing and which new products I have bought…keep reading.
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.
I have been using shea butter to seal my hair since the last few weeks before my big chop. I loved it then and I still love it now. The shea butter was an impromptu buy, I was buying something else from an online shop and I wanted to qualify for free shipping so I decided to add it to my trolley. I love how it keeps all the moisture in my hair locked in – it is one of my favourite sealants. I have been using it in its raw state since I bought it, the one issue I had with it was that whenever I rubbed it between the palm of my hands it didn’t all melt, it still felt grainy. I was left with off white specks which ended up in my hair, these looked like dandruff and I did not care for them at all. So during one of my internet browsing sprees, I came across whipped shea butter recipes which looked good enough to eat, so I decided to whip (and nae nae) my raw shea butter.
I have joined the Hairlista Castor Oil challenge for the next 3 months. I started using JBCO at the beginning of this year and I absolutely loved how it made my new growth feel. It has been part of my stash ever since and will continue to be for the foreseeable future.
Hey everybody! I hope everyone is having an awesome week. I finally did my wash day on Tuesday evening, I just want to say that kudos to all the ladies on their healthy hair journey who have full time jobs and families and still managed to get everything done! I have been so busy lately that scheduling to do my hair has been a nightmare – so I can’t imagine how crazy it would be if I had a family thrown in the mix *shoooweee*.
