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.

Relaxer Update

7 Dec

I usually wait 4 months (16weeks) before I relaxer my hair again. This time it was 19 weeks.

It did come out alot better than my last one, I think it was because I only relaxed just a little bit of my hair (new growth) instead of my entire length.

I am going to change my relaxer next time to optimum because dark and lovely gets my hair too too straight.

Overall I really like my results but not love.

My next relaxer date is in march but I might wait a little longer not sure because hair goes through crazy changes after giving birth (due in feb)…we will see.
