- I deep conditioned my hair in sections last night using ORS Replenishing Conditioner.
- I then cowased the DC out with a cheapie conditioner followed by my Nutrine Garlic conditioner. All of the cowashing was done in sections, keeping my hair braided the whole time.
- I then added my leave in's and let my hair air dry till about 80-90% dry. My hair usually takes about an hour and a half to two hours to dry to the required dryness.
- Next I detangled my hair before adding a little Cantu Shea Butter Leave in and some serum before putting in 6 pin-curls, covering with a scarf and going to bed.
My hair feels really thick today and quite strong. Not much shedding today and I didn't lose a ton of hair last night. Washing in braids is definitely the best option for me going forward, washing purely in sections was not effective enough for my fine strands.
I now need to devise a way to carry out my whole henna process (and relaxer process) whilst keeping my hair braided so I don't lose so much hair when rinsing out. There is definitely a difference in the amount of hair I lose when my hair is not braided throughout the entire washing process..............I'll need to get my thinking cap on!
Any suggestions are welcome!!!
