Wash Day and Self Trim !

Wash Day
1. Shampoo with Nexxus Pro Mend
2. Condition with Nexxus Humectress
3. Deep Condition with Macadamia Natural Oil Masque (1hr) HAIR FELT GREAT!
4. I applied my leaves in & heat protectant
5. Blow Dry & Flat Iron

I just trimmed my hair, myself ! When I was done with my washing routine I notice that my ends were DRY. Something I never notice. My entire head was still wet but my ends, they had dried up so quickly & felt rough. & out of no where I TRIM THEM I don't know why I decided to cut it I just did. Now I'm having a love hate relationship with my "cut". I love that my ends feel so much more better but I hate that my hair is back to the same length it always stays at & it's UNEVEN! I'm debating if I should go to the salon & get it cut evenly causing it to be even shorter or just wait. I don't know ladies help me decide please. Other then that I had a successful wash day being that I used NO product's that had contained anything related to PROTEIN! I had minimal shedding being that this time I washed in sections & I deep condition for an hour (had taken a nap). Overall my hair feels GREAT with the trim even though it has some unevenness :(  (Sorry for the blurry pic) But you can see the cut on the right side. I'm also planning to go back to the basics of hair care being that those procedures help me retain the length that I just cut. Frequent washes, BUNS, deep conditioning & Moisturizing & Sealing. Also staying away from heat but that's going to be a tough one I just might keep it to how I'm doing it now with heat 2x a month. That isn't to much heat is it?
 What do you ladies think should I get a cut to even it out or just let it grow out?


  1. I say leave it alone. My left side is shorter than my right due to me trying to self trim, smh. So, I decided to wait until Jan 1st to even out my hemline. I don't wear my hair out so know one will know. Since you are going to bun I'm thinking the same applies to you

    1. I'm planning to just stick to my buns & protective styles for the time being. But next time I would not be doing a self trim lol!

  2. What method do you use for trimming your hair? The trim is up to you. You will have to trim if you want it even. If you plan to wear your hair down and straight you'd probably want to trim sooner rather than later. Your hair is beautiful!

    1. I didn't even look into any methods I just cut the nasty dry ends off & I'm still thinking about it. If I cut now I won't have to worry about an even cut when my hair has grown Abit more.

    2. Google Faye's Method of visit my blog for the link (It's on the latest relaxer day post). I used that method on my last relaxer day and my hair was cut even. You could probably use that method to even out your hair. It shows you how to get a blunt shape. U shape, or V shape. HHG.

    3. Thanks I'm going to check that out then I really like the V shape so hopefully I cut it correctly.

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…

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. 

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…
