Let me start by asking a question. Am I the only one who has ever decided to skip wash day before going on vacation?
Well that’s what I did. My family and I went on a vacation and my unwashed hair followed us. It followed us to the hotel and decided it was too tired to be washed on the first night. The second night…it made the same decision. Would you believe that?! That hair followed us everywhere we went. The second day of a missed washed day, it hid under a scarf.
Let’s just say I defeated my hair and finally washed it on the third day but I didn’t remember to take any pictures. However, I have one of me today with the same hair…
Have a lovely day.
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!
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!!!!
Have you ever searched for something and when you found it you realized it was more than you needed? Let me explain.
I have a big head. Yes it’s true. No you cannot say it. But just know it’s true. I also have big hair…yes you can say it. This has made my search for the perfect shower cap difficult. For a long time I’ve battled with shower caps that only protect three-quarters of my hair and the rest is up to me to protect my hair by carefully showering…if that is possible. Anyway, my search led me to Amazon where wonderful things happen. Guess what? I found one.
Let’s just say it’s more than I need. This thing is HUGE. Gigantic. Enormous. But it protects my hair no matter which style it’s in.
I just wanted to share this with you.
I have been living under a stone. I have been living in the Dark Ages. I have been living under a stone in the Dark Ages! Let me explain.
Let us rewind to my last wash day. After my hair had stopped dripping underneath the microfibre hair towel wrap, I followed my TLC hair moisturizing routine. The only difference was that I swapped my Jojoba Oil for Avocado Oil. Well, the difference was clear! Where was I when people were using that oil and praising it? Why did I not listen? Why after almost seven natural haired years am I just trying Avocado Oil out? Immediately the Avocado Oil touched my hair, I understood. It was so soft (emphasis on so) and I could easily detangle before twisting. I still used Shea Butter afterwards. I love how my hair felt.
Last night, I sprayed my hair with my oil and water mix and used Avocado Oil while twisting my hair into four places. This was to preserve my hairstyle for the next day and keep it moisturized. Did it work? Of course!
It’s clear I’m still saying bye to my edges 😦
I do not really care to learn about hair in the scientific sense. I do not really want to know why Avocado Oil works. I just know it works. I prefer knowing my hair and what works for me. I have tried and tested different products and have had fun doing it. Getting too technical really takes the fun out of being a kinky coily haired woman. I wonder if I’m the only one who thinks this way. Do you think this way?
Just a quick post for you. I’m still working on a post about part 2 of my wash day.
So, the question is: was I too chicken to unravel my twists? The answer is No! This morning, with the aid of Jojoba Oil on my palms, I unraveled my twists. I decided not to separate them and styled it to work.
I didn’t take enough pics because I didn’t have time!
As I said before, short post!
