Past hair routine 

18 Jan

My hair routine has been basically the same for the past 3 years. My hair was growing pretty nicely. It was hitting my mid back😁. This past year I’ve been struggling and hit some set backs 😢😤.

For past couple of years my routine was pretty much

Every 2 weeks

  • Oil treatment/prepoo(coconut and castor oil
  • Shampoo – only applying shampoo to my scalp
  • Condition
  • Apply coconut oil and blow dry
  • Then braid or twist into 2 braids/flat twist

Every 4 months

  • Relax and trim

Every once in awhile I would flatiron

I’m sure pregnancy hormones helped quite a bit.

The past year I have been going into my broker’s office regularly for meetings and working. I always had to have my hair done, meaning putting stress on my hair more than usual and that’s when I started to notice the breakage. I was losing my length and health.

I’m trying to go back to my old ways and maybe even washing my hair every week. One week cowash, next week shampoo and condition. But I probably won’t be applying heat every week.

Wash Day 3 weeks Post

21 Dec

I washed and relaxed my hair 3 weeks ago. Now, usually I wash every 4 weeks but im trying to work my way up to every 2…baby steps.

I started by prepooing with coconut oil for about an hour and half. Shampooed with motions keratain and than with a mix of motions and herbal essences hello hydration conditioner.

I applied my coconut lime conditioner for about 30mins. Conditioned with herbal essences for 8mins and than motions moisture plus conditioner for 15mins.

Applied coconut oil to hair. Blow dried on high and flatironed on 310 the lowest my flatiron gets.

My hair came out so soft and fluffy
