Wash Day

1. In a nozzle bottle I put half water and half of my Shea Moisture Retention Shampoo mixed. It was definitely a refreshing feeling. I had been itching my scalp and all that came to stop during the shampoo step. Washing out the shampoo was a challenge. I have a net over my braids so it was really difficult to making sure that the shampoo was thoroughly washed out.

2. I followed that with a mixture of Aussie 3 Minute Miracle with water as well. I applied that to my braids and had let that sit. I left that on for awhile as I focused next on the weave. It was on my hair for about 10 minutes.

3. I shampooed my weave with the Shea Moisture Shampoo as well. A lot was not necessary but I made sure to thoroughly wash it. I then washed that out and followed up with the Aussie deep conditioner as well, making sure to focus on the ends. It instantly soften the hair and made the ends feel a lot better. 

4. I rinsed out the braids until I saw no more bubbles. Also rinsed out the deep conditioner off the weave. I used another conditioner on the weave, just because. I used Herbal Essence conditioner and I then detangled the weave. I had a good amount of hair that was coming out. I know it was the weave because of the way the roots look. It was kind of scary but it was not my hair so it's okay. But for the weave, uh not acceptable. I also detangled from the ends like I would do with my natural hair. 

5. Once done with the washing process I applied chi silk infusion on the extensions, just a little bit. I then applied Neutrogena Leave In on my leave out. I went under a hooded dryer to make sure my braids would be dried and followed up with a hand held blower. The weave dried really quick and return to its natural pattern. 

6. I tried blending my hair with the weave but it was a fail. So I ended up flat ironing the hair the next day. Of course I used heat protectant on both the weave and my own hair. 

As for my ends they feel so much more better. They don't feel dry at all and it's been 4 days since the wash day. I'm not sure how to keep them from getting dried. But I do wrap the hair every night doing a braid and putting a silk scarf over it. The pattern is a lot more prettier in person.

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.
