Wash Day

1. I decided to prepoo since it is part of my regimen and I have been skipping this part for the past couple of weeks now. I decided to use Grapeseed oil and olive oil to prepoo. I have heard that putting the prepoo in a spray bottle instead of a nozzle works alot better but to me they work the same still a messy process.

2. Before I rinsed out the prepoo I detangled my hair and it wasn't as easy as I thought but it still helped a lil bit.I then shampoo my hair with the Creme of Nature Shampoo nothing much to say about that. 

3. Once I was done with that I followed up with a new deep conditioner that I had sitting in my stash for awhile. The Aunt Jackie Moisturizing & Softening Deep Conditioner. My first impression of this is ehh? On my roots it didn't provide no slip and it didn't moisturize or soften the root area. But for my ends it did a decent job I was able to run my fingers through my hair and it felt very soft. I didn't understand why I had different results on my head. I left it on for about 15 minutes with heat and an additional 15 in the shower. I didn't want to keep this on no longer then 30 minutes because it had protein in it and I didn't want my hair to stiffen up or have to follow up with another d/c. But I would keep trying this. 

4.  As for my leave in I decided to use the Neutrogena Triple Moisture Leave In. Not a fan but wanted to try something different. Hair wasn't as soft as the Garnier. I really need to purchase a new leave in because both aren't good when it comes to ingredients. I ended up just air drying my hair and putting it up in a bun. Didn't use the styling product

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.
