Weave Thoughts So Far.....

Thoughts:
First day I felt that the length was correct, the thickness was on point and the texture was great. But the next day (literally) I began to notice that this hair sheds like CRAZY! Omg never ending it just sheds and sheds and sheds . I read reviews that it shed but I didn't think it was this much. It's literally getting on my nerves. I would finger comb and there would be hair coming out. Tangling is insane as well. I don't know why it gets so tangled. When I comb out the tangles it just tangles back up in just minutes causing me to comb it resulting in more shed hair. I don't even do anything for it to get tangled up. It's ridiculous.

First Wash:
My first wash with the hair went good I thought it was going to be more difficult but I washed it like I would do my own hair. I first started with my hair that's braided. I used a bottle with a nozzle that was mix with tresemme Naturals Conditioner and Aussie 3 Min deep conditioner. I left that in my hair and proceeded to washing the weave. I did not use shampoo I just cowashed with Herbal Essence long term relationship & then deep condition with Aussie 3 Min Miracle Deep Conditioner. I left the deep conditioner that was on my real hair & weave for the remaining of the shower. I started to rinse the conditioner off my real hair first which was alil bit of a hassle but still went good. I then washed the weave & detangled. Weirdly there wasnt as much hair coming out compared to detangling the hair when its dry. Once out the shower I applied Elasta QP leave-In to my leave out & weave. I had noticed this beautiful defined curl from my real hair making me miss my curling hair. I was so surprised it curled like that as well. (Wish I took photos but this was done so late). I went under a hooded dryer to dry my braids before starting to style the hair. Flat Iron the hair, wrap it & went to bed. End results was good hair is still soft and silky.

Real Hair Regimen:
I apply Jamaican black castor oil every two days or when I remember.
For my leave out I don't M&S often because I don't wash the hair every week.
Heat only been used once that was on wash day.

Overall:
Experience is going okay not great.....

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.
