April Goals Rundown & May Goals

1. Perfect a Twist/Braid Out - Almost There
I tried different products for achieving a defined twist out some days were good others were bad. I learned that I can get a really good twist out on second day hair & I did retwist my hair nightly cause doing the pineapple method did not work.. Using Grapeseed Oil & water is my favorite combination to get a almost perfect twist out. Also allowing the hair to dry before putting it up in my bonnet. If I don't I would wake up with bent looking twist which always ruins the look of my braid outs..

2. Baggy 2x Week
I baggy 2x a week the first week the second week once and after that stop. I noticed that bagging my ends made them really soft and moisturized. I've added this to my regimen because it gave me great results. But instead of twice I just do it once a week with Grapeseed oil.

3. JBCO has been done everyday to every other day but it was done

4. Stay Away From Protein
For this entire month I had stood away from protein. I have been more focused on moisturizing products from shampoo to deep conditioner. Have I seen a difference in my hair YES! Does not feel dry or brittle feels soft and moisturized. But has my breakage stop NO, but it has been minimal.

May Goals

1.Keep Hair De tangle
If I don't detangle my hair or keep my hair separated it would start to mate up together and this is more so done on hair that has been in a bun for two days.

2. Drink Water
I use to drink water on a regular day to day basis but lately it's been something I rarely reach for. I need to cut back on soda and coffee start drinking water again at least 24oz (3Cups) daily can't be hard right ? I do believe that what you put inside reflects your outside. I pick 3 cups cause it's easier to start with

3.Pay CLOSER Attention to My Hair
I have been having the worst luck with my hair this entire month literally cowash days are always a disaster. I only had one or two successful wash days this entire month. Now for May I need to pay attention to what I might be doing wrong. I know this time around its not protein for sure and my hair feels moisturized so its not lacking moisture..

4. Search & Destroy Method
I'm not ready to get a trim just yet. My hair does have some spilt ends but not so much and just cutting them instead of a full trim is what I prefer to do right.

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…
