Wash Day Diary: 22.11.13 @ 18 Weeks Post

"My wash days seem to be coming thick and fast... I seem to have fallen comfortably into a 10(ish) day wash day cycle.  At the moment, anything between 10-14 days seems best for me and my hair."

True to form, I decided that I wanted to try out yet another new product, but this time it wasn't some hard to find magical product, nope it was something I always have in my kitchen cupboards - good old sunflower oil!  Yep, I'm talking Flora and it appears my hair LOVED IT!


The picture above shows what my hair looked like at the start of my wash day.  I have been wearing these 10 twists underneath my wig units during the week.  My hair has felt soft and moisturised all week and I have been applying a mix of castor oil and Taliah Waajid Hair mist bodifier to my scalp every other day.

These are the steps I followed for this wash day:

Craving the White Stuff

So it may only seem like I have only just started by hair journey but its been 10 weeks since I last chemically relaxed my hair, this is the longest I have even gone without chemically relaxing the regrowth and I wont lie I am struggling! Although I haven't had as much breakage as I thought I might (I have had a little mainly at the very front) its been difficult on wash days as the two textures of my hair do not agree and take differently to products, for example the regrowth can take heavier oils like Olive Oil but it seems to make the ends sticky, stringy and thin looking. And if I use a lighter oil like Grape Seed I don't feel like the regrowth is getting enough moisture which may result in breakage! It all is just feeling a bit dry, brittle even.

My HAIR On My Mind: A New Look For My Old Look!


“After 5 fun months I have realised in the past couple of weeks that I am kinda over wearing cropped styles - for the time being.” 

At the heart of this realisation is the fact that I just want to look like me again! I miss my hair.…. However, it’s not my HHJ hair that I miss, it is my old pre journey hair that I’m missing so I have decided that I need a new full lace wig. In fact, I need two new wigs, this time with the glueless cap construction!

Wash Day Diary: 10.11.13 @ 16 Weeks Post

"So this week I decided to wash my hair at around the 10 day stage, rather than waiting for 2-3 weeks.  I wanted to see if this resulted in less tangles caused by shed hair.  I'm not sure if it did the trick but my scalp feels great and my hair is really moisturised so that'll do for me - for now!"

I did this wash day on Sunday during the day because after the tangles I encountered on my previous wash day, I wanted to make sure that I had the most amount of time possible to tackle any issues if they arose.

These are the steps I followed:

Wash Day Diary: 29.10.13 @ 14 Weeks Post

"The title of this post is wash day diary, but it should be Traumatic Tangles at Ten ’Clock!"

As you can see from the date, this wash day took place almost two weeks ago but I couldn’t access the document to upload this post.

I started out this wash day not really wanting but needing to wash my hair. It had been 2½ weeks since my last wash day and my scalp was acting up – which was strange for me. I think that could be down to the all-day baggying treatment I had given my hair on the previous Saturday – should have washed it then but I thought I could stretch another week out of it.


Tension Dry Naturals

So I just did my first Hair Day Sunday and Co wash, I was so happy with the result that I decided to to try tension drying too to make the new growth more manageable for the week ahead.


Hair Day Sunday - Wash Day

Hair Day Sunday  - my new wash day, I have a little more time on Sunday's when The Mister is about and can give me a helping hand with the little lads.

I think my wash day routine will be to try these products, trial them for 6 weeks and review how I get on with them at the end and adjust where I feel appropriate.

I am not a products junkie like Tracey, my products are either Tracey's casts off of products which haven't worked for her but might for me, stuff on special offer or things I have been using for so long that I have forgotten why I use them in the first place!

Relaxer be GONE!

So as I mentioned in my intro my darling sister has let me loose on her blog...she's brave! I recently decided to attempt to grow the relaxer out of my hair and go back to my natural texture, to be honest I don't even know what my natural texture is even like anymore as I started relaxing my hair early in my teens and have relaxed my hair myself pretty much every 6 weeks since.

My hair isn't in a bad condition considering, its soft but can be very dry and sometimes brittle, I've wanted to grow the relaxer out for a few years now and even more so now as I have started to get more and more grey hairs (which I have renamed platinum blonde strands!) I didn't want to have to relax as well as colour.
