It has been a very long time since I have done a wash day post on here. lol So here it goes. Last week, I wasn't feeling up to doing a cowash and deep conditioning session. So I skipped it which is something that I do not do. I am very strict when it comes to sticking to my regimen. When I finally got around to washing my hair it was so dry and bit a harder to detangle. Although I didn't lose a lot of hair after detangling, I can't see myself skipping another wash day. Those mid-week washes definitely help with the manageability of my hair. So let's fast forward to today. Today was a cowash day and I made sure I got it in. Due to laziness, I used one product and one product only, Hairitage Hydration Pink Grapefruit Punch Conditioner. I rinsed my hair with water then applied to conditioner to each section. I then applied a plastic cap and left it on for about an hour or so. I did end up putting my conditioning bonnet on to trap more heat. My hair was so soft and easy to detangle after I rinsed out the conditioner. I applied my Soft Coconut Marshmallow leave-in to help with detangling. Sealed with the Organix Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum. As I am typing out this post, my hair is air drying using the scarf method to slick my edges down some. Overall, it was a very successful wash day.
Black Hair Myth #845 lol
*Relaxers can be striped from the hair..*
This is FALSE! There is no way, shape, or form that you can strip the relaxer from you hair. The structure of the hair has been permanently altered. No product can return your hair to it's natural state. You have to cut the relaxed hair off (either transitioning or big chopping) in order to return your hair to it's natural state. What prompted this part of the post is a video I saw that was posted today. The young lady wanted to give tips on how to prevent shampoo from stripping relaxers. It kind of made me cringe a bit. Although I do enjoy this person's videos, I don't watch for hair care tips. I had to comment on this video just because I didn't want her to give out misinformation and false hope especially to a newbie. I hope this helped someone.
