I have been watching my hair fall off my hair at an alarming rate. Where are you going my dear hair? I keep looking for ways to hide the damage being done.
Well, other days I just dare to bare:
I wear my baldness out like a mother’s badge of honour. I’d forgo having hair on my edges for my sweet Lausanne any day!
In other news, my baby was baptized this month:
As I type this, I have not washed my hair and I have work tomorrow. Can someone beg these kids for me? It’s going to be wash midnight and not wash day. Wish me luck please!
Yes, this is such a random post.
Let’s go straight to the point. Time is very important for natural hair. Last week, for the first time ever, I took my time to properly detangle my hair. It was important for me to do so because my hair is shedding at 1 million strands per second (yes, I’m overreacting) due to postpartum shedding. When this happens, my hair gets tangled up and I spend too much time trying to comb it.
While in the shower, I sectioned my hair and washed as usual. However after applying conditioner, I took time to gently rid my hair of the shed hair (Lausanne and Marcello allowed me to do this). When twisting my hair, I could easily run a comb through without any problems and I didn’t spend much time.
I hope I always have time when washing my hair to repeat this. Please wish me luck!
While I was away from my blog, for no other reason than procrastination, Marcello turned 2 on May 22nd! Here are some pictures :
So guess what is still trending in my life? My edges and its successful attempt at falling out. I’m still watching my hair fall out and I don’t think there is anything I can do about it.
On a lighter note, it’s summer time and I have put my Shea Butter away. Avocado oil is doing enough for me and I don’t need my Shea Butter at the moment. I will bring it back out when the weather gets cooler.
So my current hair regimen is:
(1) Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioner on freshly washed hair. (2) Avocado oil. That’s it!!!
This helps my hair stay soft and moisturised for at least two days. I refresh during the week with a spray of water from my wonderful spray bottle followed by Avocado Oil. The end!!!!
