“Even though I cut back on my hair care regimen a few months ago, I still carried on with some of my hair care treatments – in particular my protein treatments.”
I did a colour rinse on 8th August using Adore colour rinse. Unfortunately after two weeks I felt like I needed another as my wisdom hairs were becoming visible and now after four weeks they are nothing short of rampant! I’m thinking that I might have to start using permanent dye on that front section as it’s ridiculous how ageing those grey hairs are.
This weekend I plan to do a henna gloss treatment. This treatment will follow my recipe which includes the addition of coconut milk and tea.
When steeping the tea I may add some crushed Fenugreek seeds to the mix. I saw Jeni add these to her tea rinse this week and I think it would be great to add this to henna. I have previously added fenugreek powder to henna which gave great slip, but I didn’t like the little particles of fenugreek which were really difficult to rinse from my hair. Adding it to the tea and straining it before adding to the henna will negate this issue.
After my henna treatment I will braid my hair and embark on the first month of my protective styling using one of my cropped wigs. Adding a strengthening treatment prior to going into a protective style is really beneficial for the health of my hair. When I take down my cornrows at the two week mark I will do a protein treatment with ORS Hair Mayonaise and put the cornrows back in again. When I take them down again two weeks later I plan to do a hard protein treatment and put the cornrows straight back in for a further two weeks.
During my protective style time, my ‘when I’m at home’ style of choice will be wearing an array of head-wraps. I need to go shopping for some new ones which are long enough to tie into some of these great styles showcased by Fiona.
I'm really looking forward to this upcoming henna treatment, not only because my hair could benefit from some henna right about now, but I'm also looking forward to finally tucking my hair away for a while.
