Happy Friday Hair Friends! So I have gone back curly for a while. I did enjoy the straight hair while it lasted and I have been neglecting my natural strands. With my straight hair, I could easily throw it up in a bun or some other protective style. However, the downside is that my ends were so dry because I was only washing biweekly and my hair reverted little by little every day.Here is a shot of my dry hair the day that I decided to wash it. Check out what else I've been up to besides washing my hair...here.
I co-washed my hair with Herbal Essences Naked Conditioner and exfoliated my scalp with my tangle teaser. After rinsing out the co-wash, I deep conditioned with Shea Moisture Intensive Hydration Hair Masque with Manuka Honey and Mafura Oil. Then I deep conditioned under my Gold N Hot heat cap for an hour and my curls were POPPING OUT like daisies in springtime!!!!!
I rinsed out the conditioner with cool water and shook my hair to remove excess moisture. Then I let my hair drip dry for 15-20 minutes. I don't use any towels/shirts to dry my curly hair.
Lastly, I used a new product to flat twist my hair. I used Garnier Fructis Curl Nourish Butter Cream Leave In. Now if you know anything about this product then you know that it has silicones, and mineral oil in it. I know what you're thinking...it's a bad product. However, it is the only "bad product" I use and if it doesn't cause dryness/buildup then I'll try it. Also, I clarify my hair about once every month and that should do the trick of removing buildup as well. I kind of used the lock method but not entirely. I put the leave in on my strands and sealed it with my 100% argan oil from Shea Moisture. I air dried my hair overnight and untwisted it the next morning. My curls were shiny and so defined. This surprised me because the leave does not provide "hold."This twist out is like the millionth one that I've done and if you're interested in how it looks in one of my previous posts...click here.
