On September 21, last day of summer, I started a natural hair protection and length retaining challenge with two other friends. It will end on November 2, 2012. So far, so good!!!!
The first week, I kept my hair in updos, french braids, buns and twist out tuck and roll styles.
My hair regimen consisted of the following:
– Water and coconut milk spritz then sealing with coconut/carrot/jojoba/tea tree oil every night then wrap my hair with a satin scarf.
– Treatment (1x/week): Prepoo- deep condition my hair with a mixture of palma cristi/coconut / extra virgin olive oil, shea butter and honey. Shampoo and condition with Jane Carter Solutions products. Do a hair mask with Organics Olive oil deep conditioner and an egg then rinse it all out.
The second week, I put on some senegalese twists and I am loving them.
I have a different hair regimen when my hair is kept in twists.
-Three times per week, I spritz a mixture of Unleashed Curls leave-in conditioner, water and jojoba oil to my scalp.
-Every other day, I oil my hair scalp as needed
-I wash my hair every two weeks and make sure I use a light conditioner to do so.
I will remove the current twists on October 13 or 14, set them in another braided style that I will remove on October 26. Afterward, I will leave them out for five days and do micro senegalese twists which I will leave for five weeks.
I don’t know what style I will be doing in December but what I am sure of is that the temptation to do a tapered cut or to chop all of my hair off is so big that I’d rather keep them under extensions or braids to avoid doing that……
All I am looking forward is to my next hair dye: May 2013. 🙂
