Co-wash with Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa Conditioner
Oil Rinse – Coconut Oil
Braids with Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to Set
Set each braid with grey Perm Rods
Last night my hair was feeling rather reckless, my curls still looked great but my hair was feeling dry and no amount of coconut oil would have helped it.. #Sidebar – for a rod set or any ‘dry’ set such as flat iron or regular roller set, I stillÂ haven’tÂ quite figured out the best moisturizer to add to my hair thatÂ doesn’tÂ have a liquid base. (I am open for suggestions)
Anyhoo with the rain yesterday and the dryness my style did not have a chance.. I could feel the tangles in my heart!
Last night – IÂ separatedÂ my hair into 7 twists did a little fingerÂ detanglingÂ and decided to prepare it for an Â overnight Deep Condition.
Coconut Milk – for protein and releasing tangles
Olive Oil –
I applied it to my hair … covered it with about 75 scandal bags because that thing was sooo runny… went to bed. (Can I just admit here that the overnight DC method is the most annoying thing to me…very convenientÂ becauseÂ everything happens while you sleep, but I hate drippies.)
In the AM:
-Shampooed with Amazing Botanicals Black Soap Poo
-Conditioned with Tresseme
-Final Rinse: ACV and water – First time doing this.. no lie….my first impression- it soothed my itchy scalp
– Leave in conditioner – KimmayTube leave in
My hair now?
Strong, twisted and airÂ dried.
I said I would do a perm rod set on my wet hair.. but that aint happening. I managed to get all my tangles out enough to make my twists and I did not have the energy to mess with those things( I will do it once my hair drys in about 2 days!)
Lessons learned this week:
Enjoy your hair this week!
Me: Emily why you looking so fly today
Em: Weeeeelll its Friday…and I feel like being a boss
Me: I love you
Em: I know 🙂
Last night I redid my hair with perm rods only, I spritzed (is that a word?) each section with a little water, olive oil and a little setting lotion. Man.. I love these bad boys
|Still got That Henna Red.. henna got some stayin power.. Damn|
I decided to do my whole head!.. I got inspiration from a video as usual! 🙂
*Before I put each roller in I applied a little kimmayTube leave in and spritz with some water
*I removed the rollers carefully and usedÂ coconutÂ oil on the curls just for addedÂ luster
*IÂ didn’tÂ really style it.. I just flung some of the curls from the right to the left.. just so itÂ wouldn’tÂ be so even steven
