Wash Day

This week washday (5-05) I ended up doing a rollerset something I wasn't planning to do just yet but I haven't gotten any good luck with twist outs or cowash days lately. So I just decided to straighten my hair so I won't have to deal with my hair for a week. I also used different products this time around since nothing else has been working for me. 

Prepoo with JBCO on scalp & grapeseed oil on the lengths of my hair. 

Shampoo with Creme of Nature Argan Oil lathers up very well for a sulfate free shampoo. 

I then did a VERY light protein treatment. I mean if you would consider it a protein treatment.. I put mane & tail deep moisturizing conditioner and left it on for two minutes. When I rinsed it out my hair felt really soft and I enjoyed the results. Hair was able to be detangled very well. (This is my first time trying this product since I was scared to use because it contains proteins) 

I then deep condition for 30 minutes with heat using the Bee Mine Beautiful...
This deep conditioner I don't know! I don't think my hair approves of this deep conditioner but its hard to say because any conditioner my hair has been disliking except for that Mane n Tail which I am surprised about. 

I applied my leaves in which was the Chi Silk Infusion and Garnier Fructis leave in conditioner I applied a small amount so it won't weight my hair down as much. 

As for the rollersets since I haven't done it in awhile of course it was not perfect it wasn't acceptable at all. Once I got out from the dryer I had a lot of textured in the roots which resulted in me using a flat iron. I haven't used heat in two months and I was really scared ! I hope I didn't cause any heat damaged 😩. 

Planning to keep it straight for two weeks and back to washing regularly after...

  1. Wheat protein isn't a very strong protein which may be why your hair doesn't mind it. In fact, it is a 'moisturizing protein'. Check this out for an explanation:

    Be sure not to avoid all proteins, just the really strong ones or the ones too big to penetrate LP hair. Not all proteins are created equal when it comes to LP hair.

    I am sorry you didn't like the Bee Mine but be sure to check out Curl Mart and check their protein free DCs. There are so many others to try! Good luck!

    1. I hope that next time I try it out it works and keeps giving me consistent results. I been having the worst luck with conditioners lately. The Bee Mine, I guess it wasn't what my hair really like. Some days were good others were okay.. I'm currently looking at products from Oyin Handmade & Curl Junkie.

    2. I really love the Curl Rehab by Curl Junkie but I HATE the price for the amount you get. Maybe you can catch a good sale on it. Good luck!

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.
