Week 2 was pretty much a breeze. I was very excited about trying my Shea Moisture products and I found a way to implement them into the challenge.
For this week,I was instructed to pre poo with ORS Hair Mayonnaise for 30 minutes. That was easy peasy lemon squeezy(I overheard Bubba say it…don’t ask). As always I sectioned my hair into four. I do that before doing anything with my hair and I advise you do the same. If you have more hair than I do, you may need to do more sections.
I used my fabulous Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Moisture Retention Shampoo. It was totally worth the $12,my mom paid for it. It lathers well& didnt’t feel stripping at all. Ladies who are really about their products being 100% natural should definitely try Shea Moisture. Check out this label:
I did my DC with Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner. Lord know I needed some restoration for Diva( not sure if I mentioned before,but Diva St. James is my hair’s name lol).I used a quarter sized amount for each section and I started from the tip and went up to the root. Here’s the ONE thing that irritated me. I was supposed to DC with a hooded dryer for 30 minutes but I don’t have one so…I had to use my hand dryer. Listen,I’m so dedicated to helping Diva go back to her former glory,I held the hand dryer over my head for the entire thirty minutes. Diva thanked me because when I washed the conditioner out, she was so soft &fluffy like cotton candy. I don’t think my hair has ever been that soft without a relaxer.Shea Moisture was definitely my Eureka! moment.
I LOC’d as normal with EVOO & my Creme of Nature with Argan Oil Moisturizer. I want to change my oil to EVCO because its winter here in NYC & I don’t wear a hat so I need extra protection. I’ve been wearing my hair in twists& I’ll be doing so until the last week of the challenge,when I’ll rock a sock bun. I feel like I’m getting my confidence and self esteem back and at the end of the day, that’s what my hair journey is all about. I want my hair to always reflect how I feel on any given day and having healthy hair will show that I’m feeling good about Jennice as a mommy, sister,daughter but most importantly, a woman.
