i took out my weave this morning. thot i'd play with my hair a bit, so decided to attempt a wash and go.
i did a prepoo using coconut and amla oil. stayed under a cap dryer for 10 mins only and just left the plastic cap over my head while i did my chores. methinks i washed the hair after about 2 hours. not sure now. but definitely for a bit. washed using aussi moist conditioner. and that was it.
for leave-in conditioner, i used Creme of nature argan oil leave -in. ehm... a new purchase.
Vitale olive oil moisturiser on that.
oh oh oh, when i took the weave off, my hair was super moisturised, and zero breakage. the hair was silky soft. i really didn't want to wash the hair to be sincere. guess my fingers were twitching to use the new products i bought.
after putting the leave-in and moisturiser, my hair felt a bit iffy actually. wasn't sure i knew what was the cause. got the spritz bottle hand, (aloe juice, glycerin, eucalyptus oil, Castor oil). and kinky curly coiling custard. sectioned the hair into 4 parts using butterfly clips. then started from the back.
Working in little sections, i wetted and then raked the custard through . the first thing i noticed was tangling. oh my God, i had loads of single strand knots. it was unbelievable. then felt the curls were not really popping out. for the remaining 3 sections, after wetting, i applied oil (Castor and sunflower oil mix) before adding the kinky curly custard,
oh my!!!, my curls popped out kaboom! before my eyes. didn't believe i had this kinda of curl definition.
i continued through the whole hair. alas, by the time i got to the front, my hands were tired and stared taking bigger chunks of hair. but all in all i loved the definition i saw.
i May have used too much product, cos my hair was white when i was done. i had to rinse with cold water and shake my head from side to side to get some product off and curls popping every where.
am i excited about the definition?, you bet!!.
the hair didn't dry as quickly as i had though though. as at now , yet to dry. i feel tempted to use a dryer on it.I'll try not to though.
Oh well, right now, loving my hair.
