Guess What !?

I think I was never suffering from protein overload. My hair just wasn't retaining any of the moisture because I had product build up. I had realized that I wasn't clarifying my hair monthly and I was barely using a shampoo. Also there were days that I didn't co-wash my hair. So my hair just had so much product in it that it wasn't letting anything else in (From what I think).

On Sunday I think it was I had shampoo my hair with a mini sample of HE Hello Hydration Shampoo. From there I had use the HE Hello Hydration conditioner as well (The conditioner was already purchase before I posted my haul). My hair was feeling all types of great! I was able to detangle easily and felt the slip the conditioner had given to my hair. Once I was done I had T-Shirt dry and apply my NTM Leave - In. I braid my hair into two braids and went to bed. The next morning my hair felt SOOOO Soft and Moisturized ! Even my Boyfriend told me how soft my hair was (I would typically rant to him about how rough my hair was,lol). But that night I had M&S with NTM leave in & EVOO. Next day same results it was soft and felt moisturized, even the ends! That same night I had co-wash my hair with the HE conditioner and braided my hair into two braids again woke up had amazing hair!

I believe that the build up came from "cones" because I don't have many products that contain mineral oil except one. I realized just earlier today that my suave conditioner has cones as well as my deep conditioner which was the DPR +11 had cones also my NTM has cones. So I know common sense the only way of removing the cones is with shampoo. Can correct me if I’m wrong (still doing my research). But lets hope that next week my hair continues to do good. This week was a successful week for my hair and if it was protein overload can someone get over that in just a week? Idk but I’m happy my hair is feeling great and now I feel really scared to put protein back into my hair so now I’m thinking of a new regimen with less protein more moisture, well a balance of the two. Any advice I’m gladly to accept. I’m postponing to cut my ends for the following week the weather over here won’t be looking to good (raining) & I was getting my hair straighten so I’ll just hold off.

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…
