Its been a while since I blogged about how my hair is doing, what products I've been using and all the fun stuff!!
Let's get straight to it...right now my hair is 13 weeks post relaxer and I am stretching 3 more weeks to get to 16 weeks post relaxer( 4 months) which is currently the longest time I have ever stretched. Ironically, this strech has not been as unbearble as I would have guessed, been so busy that before I realized, I was 12 weeks post relaxer...I also have done crotchet extensions twice within this time and that must have contributed to me breezing through this stretch.
I am starting to come to terms with my absolutely different textured back hair (nape hair)...it must be like a 4Z!!!! I say this because that section of my hair is the driest, most sensitive, split end prone, kinkiest part of my hair. It's that section of my hair that has always thinned out forming my infamous V and It's at it again;
In my search for a solution I found that I'm not the only one with the problem, even hair guru's have dealt with it at some point in their journey. I found this post by JEN of JUST GROW ALREADY most helpful(she even went on a 6 months challenge to grow her's out- instead of hack all her hair off like I've done- TWICE!! wish someone told me :(. Well here's the post, I do EVERYTHING she wrote except I use my own choice of products, check this post out if you are having thinning/breakage in your nape area...Just Grow Already Nape challenge post.
As for my products of choice? Lately I have fully embraced the product junkie within, I have so much stash that I am spoilt for choice!! I've been loving Natural Nigerian's leave in for daily moisturizing the most though,
so light weight and ridiculously moisturizing...it easily rivals Shea Moisture curl milk!! For sealing I've been using coconut and almond oil.
My hair has been benefiting GREATLY from the treats I have been whipping up for the hub(stay tuned for this weekend's treat announced latest Friday). I don't drink alcohol but my hair sure loves beer!
For co-washing I have been using Garnier's new damage eraser conditioner-
recommended by a NHCG reader, LOVE IT!! It has to be a staple from now on!! Of course the Savvy & Chic luxury satin caps have helped me retain my moisture(we have such a variety now, holla if you need one- 08090613325 or email email@example.com.)
We also have a variety of satin pillow cases to match- delivery is available nationwide;
Sleeping with a satin cap/pillowcase need not be boring any longer!! That's all for now ladies, thanks for stopping by!!
