"My hair was feeling a little bit dry, especially around the nape area. As I relaxed my hair last week I should have really done a chelating / neutralizing wash but I decided on a deep condition and cowash instead as that's what I felt my hair needed."
Below are some pictures of the steps I followed:
I couldn't decide on which conditioner to use today for the dc, however after reading a recent post on Jeni's blog it reminded me about the Creme of Nature Argan Oil Conditioner packs I had purchased from Pak's a year ago. I used one back then and thought it was okay, but nothing special so had given one to my sister and kept the remaining one. I decided to use this for the protein and moisture but decided to prepoo with it instead of dc'ing after washing.
|My HAIR prior to cowashing. It has definitely got longer and thickened up nicely. The ends also look okay although I do need a trim - I will try to get to that next week.|
|I sectioned my hair into four and finger detangled thoroughloy. I then prepoo'd with EVCO for 1hr then added Creme of Nature Intensive Conditioing Treatment for a further 45mins under a plastic cap and a scarf|
|This is My HAIR today 11.08.12. I have been wearing my hair in a high bun most days, although yesterday it was in a low bun and on Wednesday it was in two loose French braids|
I was shocked when I saw this photo, because it seems like the longest parts of my hair are freakin APL!!!
|This is my hair when it was about 50% dry.|
Now I am not about to claim it but hey, it definitely gives me something to shoot for during my next stretch which I am planning to replicate the last one i.e. lots of protective styling and keep it simple with the wash days.
I am also still totally loving the Organix Coconut Milk Conditioner as a leave in / moisturiser! It seems to be woking well for my hair so i will be sticking with this until it no longer works. I have restocked by purchasing a regular sized bottle. I have topped up my small bottle and carry it in my handbag just incase I need a shot of moisture.
