➰➿Of course, I would have a good hair day when I get the flu and all I want to do is lay in bed all day!!!!!!!!!! I woke up at 3 am sweating, with the worst headache, unable to fall back asleep, so what else was I to do but take a bath and of course wash my hair. I know, I know I wash my hair too much! I always worry I'm going to send myself into hygral fatigue and today at 3 am I was convinced I had! I went down the Google rabbit hole! Read @curlsandtwirlsfordays
three-part series on the subject AGAIN and came across @jannelleoshaughnessy
YouTube video (check out my story to see which one and go watch it!) on assessing your hair as you go instead of having a wash day game plan. Anyone else go in with a plan?!?
➿➰I will usually write down the concoction ima experiment with the day before in my notes. It helps me keep track of what I've done (mom brain)
Anyway, since I wasn't planning on washing my hair today, I decided to try this whole "do as you go thing..." I'm happy to report my hair just needed a little protein, I think! Cuz check out these wavy • curls!!! Oooh also #straightfacedwomen
because I'm a multitasker! The tea⬇⬇⬇ .
activated charcoal & purple moonstone restore and reclaim scalp scrub
purple shampoo and super natural conditioner (rinsed all out)
Plopped for ten minutes
Airdried for a hour
Did a strand test to check if I was in hygral fatigue or if I was over moisturized. It was the latter.
So I used @giovannicosmetics
La Naturals gel which has soybean seed protein
Let it dry some more and decided to #smasterstechnique
a tiny bit of
coconut and hibiscus curl enhancing smoothie for good measure (it also has protein)
Root clipped here then diffused till dry. I'm surprised I don't have that much frizz but I'm guessing it's because my hair NEEDED the protein.
This balance stuff is hard guys
