6 Week Update

So it has been already one month and two weeks since getting my hair installed. I have washed my install and hair underneath twice already and this week will be my third time. I didn't write a post on my second wash day because it was a late process. The hair always reverted back to it's original pattern which is a body wave. Being that I do not know how to blend my natural hair with the body wave I end up flat iron it. I always use a heat protectant on the weave and my leave out before I flat iron. It straightens very easily and the ends do not feel fry.  I have also curled the hair which it held the curl very nicely and lasted for three days.

The way I maintain the weave is just combing it before bed and either putting it in a high ponytail or bun. I sleep with a satin pillow case so I don't feel the need to wrap the hair with a scarf. A quick combing in the morning and my hair is good to go.

As for shedding it is very minimal but what I have notice is that a clump of the weave that is attached to the weft will come out. I hope that makes sense. But it has happen twice when I would comb the hair and I start from bottom to top. It has also happen during washing session.

I feel that I really like this hair. It still very soft and blends nicely when I flat iron. I am planning to keep this in for a maximum of three months, but if I want to remove it before then it would be at two and half months. I feel my natural hair is holding up well. I moisturize as often as I can with a watery leave in that I put in an applicator bottle for easier distribution since my natural hair is under a net. But there are times where I forget or feel lazy so I don't know if I should keep it in for three months. I honestly don't feel that my hair is in bad condition though. So I guess we will see how I feel when two months comes around. I just feel with the net it is really hard to tell whether or not I can go for another month. June 9th will make it 2 months.

  1. I wonder if using a light protein conditioner/leave in on your hair underneath would help you retain more length? Hmmm....just thinking aloud! Love your blog chica!

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.
