Hello Everyone! It's been exactly two years since I chopped my hair off. I wanted to do it on my birthday so I could celebrate both occasions together. It's been a full year since I used heat on my hair also. I keep my hair routine very simple now. I am staying away from protein. If you know a deep conditioner with a mild protein or no protein at all, please let know. You will hear me mention the word shampoo occasionally, but I am trying so hard to stay away completely. My hair is really loving the no shampoo business. If you read my last post, you know how much I enjoy co-washing my hair with my beloved Alberto V05 Clarifying Conditioner. It gets the job done, period. It cleanses the scalp without stripping the hair from its natural oil.
- My wash day experience was pretty much like last week, which was a success. I co-washed with my clarifying conditioner.
- I moisturized my hair with my oil mix (extra virgin coconut, castor, and olive oils) while my hair was still damped. I love to add oils after washing my hair to lock the moisture in. Jamaican black castor oil is my go-to oil for sealing my ends, but using my oil mix works as well.
- I applied castor oil on my scalp to keep my hair moisturized under the crochet braids (pictured above)
- I braided the part of my hair that's left out, and put my hair in a low bun after drying.
