My hair and I are yet to decide on whether to touch up or get a long term protective style. I actually went two weeks without washing my hair the horror! It all boiled down to good old laziness nothing else until my scalp could take it no more and started itching like crazy so I finally had to wash it. Still living the bun life and loving it, low maintenance and hardly any manipulation. On wash day I took my bun down and detangled slightly and then,
Shampooed twice with liquified African Black Soap click here to see how I liquiefy mine,
And then conditioned with,
I am yet to find a conditioner that can rival this one. Great slip and smells great! The comb just glides through my 30 plus weeks post hair. I only had issues in sections where I did not detangle properly pre shampooing. Conditioner applied I let it sit on my hair for a while since I had to prepare a quick meal that had to go somewhere so I decided to cook first then rinse later. I wrapped cling film around my hair, scarf on top of that and proceed to make the meal. Later while in the midst of wrapping the food with tin foil I had the bright idea to wrap it on top of the cling film and then tie a scarf sort of like a DIY conditioning cap so I did exactly that (after wrapping the food first of course) and let it sit for maybe 20 more minutes. So it was a layer of conditioned hair, cling film, tin foil and then a scarf. I actually saw some conditioning caps that I liked at my local Beauty Supply Store last week I may just pick one up next time I pop in. Hair conditioned I rinsed it off and then t-shirt dried till damp applied my leave in conditioning cream and then let it air dry. I made four large jumbo braids later and oiled my scalp with my Amla/Castor oil mix the next morning since I did not want to stain my pillows with oil seeing as I washed my hair in the early evening. I really need to make up my mind on what to do with this hair in the next week or so my new growth is like a wild bush!
