Hair Update

Tuesday, March 24, 2009

It's been a while. Life got in the way of hair care, can y'believe it?? But not to worry. I'm back on track now!

Since I last wrote, I took out the set of braids I had in, got a weave, and at the moment have braids. Phewf! Sounds like a lot, but let me explain.

I've vowed many a time, never to let anyone else do my hair ... I've had a few setbacks because of people being rough with my hair :( ... This time I let someone put in the weave for me, and they were extremely gentle - which I was greatful for. But after about 2 weeks the weave started pulling on my hair ... my edges in particular. It was so bad that one night, I got up at 2 am in the morning to undo the damned thing! I just wasn't going to risk losing my edges. They're already weak enough as it is. I really don't know what happened, because the person who weaved me up didn't do it too tightly at all ... ah well. Maybe weaves just aren't for me??

So after undoing the weave, I let my hair breathe for a few days, then braided it up (this was about 2 weeks ago). I'm so much happier in braids. So much easier on wash days too.

My first wash day in these braids was last weekend. I did a:

Shikakai rinse
Amla rinse
Conditioned with a moisturizing conditioner (with heat)
Applied EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)

I'm back with a bang and will endeavour to update more often. I'd love to hear from you all too.

That's all for now peeps! Ciao.
