What Have I Accomplished:
1. Using less heat!
I use to use heat every week to almost every other day it was horrible. But when I started my journey I barely used it. I would use it twice a month to once a month. Even though it was not eliminated completey I chilled out with it plus I started using heat protectant and learning to rollerset
2. Protective Styling
I bun my hair literally an entire semester and after that I was a bun addict. Bunning is so cliche in the hair world but I'm telling you it has done wonders for my hair. Its definitely what had helped me reach my length before my self trim gone wrong incident. Also twist out disasters is what lead to buns in the first place but now that I finally learned how to twist correctly and what to use it has been another go to style for me. Also protecting hair at night. It has gotten to the point where I'm kind of scared to put my head on a cotton pillow lmao! seriously thou I have a satin pillow in case there days I go without my bonnet.
3. Learned something about my hair
- Low Porosity which explains why my hair is protein senstive if you were to go back to all my pervious blogs you would see that I was always questioning if I were proteins senstive.
- When I keep up with M&S my hair has less breakages and I have a better wash day for some reason
- My hair loved, at a point, co washing. It's starting to warm up to it again. yes!!
So it's not much but I'm still learning everyday about my hair
