So I Cowash Today . . . .

I had did my full wash day on Sunday but I didn't have time to really write about it. But I did cowash so why not write about it lol .
Sorry about the quality

I decided to deep condition on slightly damp/dry hair. I used a spray bottle to moist my hair so that I can distribute the d/c more easily. I decided on using the Beautiful Textures Rapid Repair D/C and its time I post my review about that deep conditioner Sigh* Just not a fan of it.

I left it on for 2 hours with my heating cap on and went into the shower rinsed it out and my hair just wasn't feeling it again. I think I came to a conclusion about why it may have not work but that would be another post. But it didn't help to moisturize my hair or provide any slip it was soft, but as I continuously rinsed it out my hair was feeling tangled. When I was done my hair just didn't feel soft anymore but it wasn't rough.

I then cowash with a conditioner that I didn't like months ago. I had used it a week ago as a conditioner rinse (What I call a conditioner that helps condition after shampooing) I enjoyed it but now I see why I don't like it as a co wash. I think it might be a certain ingredient that my hair doesn't like. As you can see I don't have the curliest hair and I really don't know if its heat damaged or just a different hair type. (Honestly don't know my natural hair type) I then applied my favorite leave in, at the moment, and surprisingly it couldn't even soften up my hair. I really blame the products I use prior because that leave always delivered since I have been using it. 

Also can someone tell me why does this happen? When I get out the shower I always tshirt dry my hair but once I remove it and let it air dry for the remainder of the time the nape area dries so much quicker then the rest of my hair. Why is that happening I really don't understand.
I then flat twisted my hair as you can see I'm not that good but I'm okay, still learning.


  1. I considered purchasing that leave-in, but I noticed it had isopropyl alcohol listed as an ingredient. I didn't want it to dry my hair out.

    1. I know I really need to try a better leave in.

  2. Beautiful hair!

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.
