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.
