High Bun Mohawk & An Update

This past Mother’s Day weekend I finally went for the high bun mohawk I’ve talked about doing before. I felt like it was time to do something different,especially after finally ‘dusting’ my hair.

In preparation for my  new ‘do, i prepoo’d my hair with extra virgin coconut oil for about an hour before washing with my creamy aloe shampoo. I used the creamy aloe shampoo because the Eco Styler Olive Oil  Hair Gel I used really had my hair flaky so I needed first and foremost handle that. After that, I used my Creme of Nature Moisture and Shine sulfate free shampoo. I finger and comb detangled then applied my Tressemme Moisturizing Conditioner. After washing it out, I  did a hot oil treatment with coconut oil,castor oil,and, olive oil. It felt amazing and after 30 minutes, I co washed with the same conditioner.

i followed the YouTube video tutorial pretty much to the letter( I let my mom part it for me) and the results were amazing!!! I was very proud to attempt my first updo by myself and what better timing than Mother’s Day. I plan on leaving it in until Friday and before then I hope to find my next easy-to-do…’do.I’d like to attempt a wash’n’go but first I want to figure out how to do it the right way.

Before doing my mohawk, I told my mom I was going to NEVER relax my hair again and she didnt understand why I was choosing to take care of my own hair from now on. She actually seemed a little upset and I explained to her that it was my decision and I was going to do it whether she approved or not.That took alot of guts to do, but after reading how other naturalistas dealt with opposition for #Naturalhair, I felt better about letting my mom know my plans. 

I’m happy to report that my breakage problem, is coming along slowly but surely. After cutting my hair, I think it will progress even better. My next thing to tackle is that damn rough patch smack in the lower right area of my hair. I’m really at a lost for what to do about it but I suppose  dong some type of daily regimen would be a start.

    Love it! Everyone definitely won’t be on board with the whole choosing to go natural thing, but at the end of the day, you have to stick to your guns and do what’s best for you and your hair. There are enough natural hair communities out there and I’m sure you can find one that’s right for you to be a great a support system.
