Starting Again !

Today I decided to give my hair some TLC. I did my first ever hot oil treatment with EVOO but I don’t really know what results I’m suppose to get from hot oil treatments. Though it is my first time doing it I’m not expecting any results that quickly. I’m going to start doing hot oil treatments weekly as a pre-poo. I think I have an allergic reaction to evoo, not really sure. Every time I apply this to my hair my face starts to itch. But I had test it on my arm to really see if I were but I didn’t get any itched feeling. I only start itching, on my face, when I apply it to my hair even when I use it as a sealant.

After I had rinsed out the oil I shampooed my hair with Elasta QP Crème Conditioning. Will put a review once I have a good opinion on it. But by first impressions it did an okay job. Made my hair feel really soft but I wasn’t able to detangle from what I thought I will be able to.

Then when I was done with that I deep condition my hair with a deep conditioner that I had laying around called L'Oreal something mixed with Evco, Evoo and jojoba oil. DISGUSTING! The results I received from this deep conditioner was not at all amazing. I didn’t have any slip, was not easy to detangle and it smelled pretty bad! Threw out that deep conditioner as soon as I got out the shower.

I had separated my hair into four sections and applied my leave in which is my Shea moisture curl enhancing and braided each section. I’m planning on cowashing my hair tomorrow to get rid of this smell and do a roller set. Also thinking on purchasing VO5 Moisture Milks. Want to try this out as a cowash, heard many good things about but I want to know what’s the difference between suave brand and this one. Well I will try it out some day and see if there any difference that’s for another post :)

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 



Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
