So on Friday I changed up my routine a wee bit. Used a different combo of my products (do you really want to see the baskets of my hair care junk? Nope!).
I wash n condition every 10 or so days. Used to do every week but honey, there's more to life than just hair. Like movies and husbands and girlfriends. Every couple of months, I deep condition at Pauline's - My hair dresser. If I have a weave or braids I wash every two weeks. Hono is amazing. My other hair dresser. The one I cheat on Pauline with. Lmao!!! One is good for sets, color n stuff; The other for protective styles. What can I say, this African girl can have it ALL!!
Anywho, first the shampoo .....
Massaged the combo into my hair and scalp and left it for about 5 minutes. Wrapped with a walmart plastic bag. Yeh, I'm hood like dat! If you have conditioning cap, go ahead with your bad self! Use it! I was too impatient to wait 10 minutes I had planned on....
Some neo soul on my tube-in radio didn't do much either to make me chill and let it flow 🎶🎶🎶🎶.....And I haven't invested in a steamer. Wish someone would peak at my Amazon wish list.....😜
Then a quick rinse and pat with towel. Rubbing breaks my hair so bad and gets it in knots. Divided the mane to two parts for easier management... The hair bands are the kind that are not supposed to break your hair..... They are almost 100% what they claim to be. 😄 I see a couple of strands on mine. Not too bad!
By the way, no brushing!! Breaks my hair so either a wide toothed comb or my fingers......
Hmm. Keep the pony or not?
Then I got to the twisting part.
Divided the hair in sections then double twisted. Stretched, my hair is actually long!!!
Here are the twists.....
When I was done twisting, hair was air dried pretty much. A dab of the Moroccan argan oil to the ends of the twists (oldest part of your hair - super fragile!). Just a little extra loving ......
So you see? It doesn't have to be a cold turkey all organic, all natural hair products affair. All I used prolly totals 25 bucks, 30 tops and all last a long while! And oh, in my opinion, safe to use!! It's not like I suddenly have Indian silk on my head just coz I quit the hair crack and went for the big chop. It's just hair people. Just be kind to it, love it, live it, rock it!!!
Tomorrow I will add the picture of the twists unravelled. Wait, that could be a title for a book, or a movie!! Twists Unravelled. No? Okkkkkkay 😒.
Today Is tomorrow! I mean it's yesterday's future.... You know what I mean.....
A little moisture by wetting my hands and running through my hair. Twist sections finger combed.
Followed with a little bit of that argan oil. Sometimes I finish with the herbal oil too.
