Hair Weave Removal Horror !

I don't even know where to begin. But I know that I am done with weaves. I took my weave out yesterday and it was not hard to do. The hard part was the detangling! I have never had a hard time when it came to detangling my hair but this time was the worst! My hair was so matted it made it difficult I didn't know what to do. I know that having your hair braided for a long period of time would cause the hair to have an excessive amount of shedding when you take it apart. But this shedding was ridiculous. I am not use to this nor do I know when the shedding is really breakage. I felt like my hair was just coming apart. I used only my fingers to remove any knots or tangles, I was to scared to use anything else.

By the way once I had removed the weave I had apply warm grape seed oil mixed with evoo to the braids so it can be easier to take apart.

Once the braids were taken apart I thought okay this is what the shedding is I'm okay don't freak out. Once I got in the shower and wet my hair just clumps of hair began coming out. I had at least 4 big clumps of hair already taken out. At that point I didn't know what too do or what I done wrong. I pretty much used the products I had purchased and also deep condition with Aussie 3 Min Miracle which did nothing this time around. I ended the shower with tangles still in my hair mainly at my roots. Also started to notice my hair getting dry really quickly. It was unreal! The only good thing I had notice once I got out the shower was I that my curls had finally pop! They were so defined I couldn't believe it. But anyway once my hair dried up I apply the Aussie leave in as a "moisturizer" which left a nasty film like feeling on my hair when I woke up the next morning.

*Side Note I notice my hair doesn't like Leave in conditioner used as a moisturizer. Even when I put the smallest amount*

Anyway in the morning I began to spritz my hair with water so I can try to get the tangles out again and I couldn't find a wide tooth comb anywhere!! I then used my "deman brush" worst thing I had done cause I had more hair coming out.....

Long story short, lol, I went to a salon that morning had more tangles and hair come out end results THIN THIN beyond belief THIN hair. I always had thick hair so for my hair to be this thin is unbelievably. Feel as if I'm missing so much hair in the middle of my head. I just hope that the salon visit that one time doesn't make my curls go away. After this week I'm going back to my curly hair especially since this time it's really curly. Back to the drawing board for me any advice at this point would be appreciated. Especially on how can I make my hair thick again.

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…
