When I am done with the whole washing process or cowashing my hair I have been ignoring the straight strands in my hair. I just haven’t accepted the fact that my hair is pretty damage and maybe beyond fixable. I’m pretty sure I received this damaged from the bleach that I had done to my hair a month ago. Ever since the hair color I been babying my hair to hopefully restore the damage. But in my eyes it seems to be unfixable. (Even though some curl pattern has return) At this point I’m not sure what I should do. I want to cut my hair and just go back to a dark brown but then I also want to grow out the hair color and do trims until its all gone. Doing it this way though would take a very long time. If I do decide to color my hair again sadly I’m going to either do a rinse or a semi permanent of a dark brown hair color and then cut my hair to shoulder length. But I am not planning to color anytime soon. Maybe around the fall time I would do it or maybe ending of the summer. For now I’m going to still baby my hair and try to hopefully restore it (if possible).
Something that I have been experiencing through out this month is my hair not retaining any moisture.During my weekly washes I was noticing that when I deep conditioning my hair wouldn’t feel moisturized and didn’t have any slip. It would feel rather hard and be very difficult to detangle. Then when I would M&S my hair the next morning it wouldn’t feel moisturized. It would feel dry and rough. I was starting to believe that maybe my hair wasn’t retaining the moisture very well, that I might have porous hair. That maybe I should try the ACV remedy. Well now I think I figure out my problem. I’m experiencing PROTEIN-OVERLOAD!.
In my last update I had said how well my hair has been responding to all the protein. I was conditioning with my light protein weekly. I was deep conditioning with varies deep conditioners looking for that one moisturizing conditioner to use but was always using one that had some type of protein in it. Then I would M&S With a rotation of moisturizers that also contain protein and not only that but when I had done a braid out I would use Cantu Shea Butter Repairing Leave In. I wasn’t experiencing a ton of breakage but I did have some. But my main concern was why my hair wasn’t obtaining any moisture. So I went on Hairlista and a couple of ladies help me figure out what to do.
I’m going on a all moisture based regimen and also planning to incorporate the ACV in my regimen. But still I don’t know if it is just protein overload, porous hair or that my hair is just damaged. If someone can give me their opinion I would really appreciate it. Thank You.
