My Natural Hair Journey – June 2018 Update


Hello My Beautiful Ladies,

How are you all doing? Hope all is well and dandy with you and your families. 

First of all,  wanted to start out with a Thank You to each and every one of you for continuing to be with me after so many years, you are truly appreciated and I’m grateful to have you with me, your comments and likes are so exciting to see, thank you all so very  much.

Second of all, please remember any questions, inquiries or anything of that nature, you can IG me, any natural hair questions, am a text away.

Third but not least, Let us get to these updates right, hahahaha, as promised, here is my 3 months Progress report on my tresses, Enjoy!!!

My Hair Care Regimen: 

Simplicity is key and is needed for my tresses to thrive and continue to be healthy so I keep a very simple hair care regimen that works for me. So with that being said, I tend to leave my tresses alone, once styled in 2 Strand Twists, let them be until Wash Day, where they are taken out, styled back in different sections and done, with this style, as long as your tresses are well moisturized, this style lasts me 2  to 3 weeks.

 

           

Products Used:

TRESemme Conditioner, Cantu Care for Kids Leave-In Conditioner & Castor Oil , mix them all in one and applied as hair is styled in 2 strand twists.  When using the TRESemme Conditioners, use the ones with Moisture or Softness as these work best for me out here in the Tropics. The Cantu Leave-In is working marvels for my hair, needed a bit more moisture and she is just what I needed and Castor Oil is my best and fav oil now!!!

Treatments:

Rice Water Treatments are working extremely well for my tresses, I see more shine and sheen, healthier and much less breakage. I even took pictures so you can see just how much hair comes out, which is 1/4th of what I use to shed, so its working for my tresses, will continue to use for the rest of the year and observe progress more closely as time goes, the one that works best for me is the Parboiled Rice, does wonders.

Styles:

As you know, my signature style are my 2 strand twists, they never let me down and I love them completely, once done, I don’t even have to worry about styling again. I simply refresh in the morning and once a week is gone, will wash her and apply cream or oil to my my hair and ends and she is perfectly fine. My 4C Hair loves to be left alone, so I listen and let her be, as they say, if it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it.

Wash Day:

Once a week I will co-wash my hair, then every 2 weeks will wash with a Shampoo to get the product build up out and maintain my scalp clean so she can breathe well. If I have the time, the day before Wash Day, will do an Overnight Oil Treatment, if not, then on Wash Day, I do my Rice Water, place on hair and scalp, leave for 15 to 20 minutes, rinse, apply my Hair Cream Mix and My Mum will style hair for me.

Daily Maintenance:

As I mentioned before, this one is pretty easy, peasy, I get up, get ready, fix a twist or 2 and am done!!! Hahahahaha. Occasionally I might do a twist out, left for very special occasions, or so a scarf set or add some accessories to my hair or a hair band and that is it. We tend to lead very busy lives so yes, we do take care of our hair but for me personally, I cannot spend hours on her daily, so simplicity is key for me.

New Products I am using:

Cantu Care for Kids Leave-In Conditioner,  I know, I know, it says for Kids!!!!! But this leave in works wonders for my hair, she keeps her moisturized up to 1 entire week and this in the Tropics!!!! She mixes extremely well with Castor Oil and My Conditioner. A little goes a long way, 1 10 oz jar can last me up to a month, and yes, fully stocked on her as well, our local Supermarket now sells Cantu Products so am extremely happy with that fact. Next one I want to try is the Cantu Shampoo, because my Bonawell Shampoo has finished so I need to look into purchasing one this weekend. I will check out the Cantu Aisle, see which one I like, research for a couple of days and choose one, haha!
