How was the weekend? good? Oh maybe I should add, Happy Valentines day to all the lovers out there. I just wanted to do a post to update you guys on how the hair challenge is going. I have had my braids in for 4 weeks not...this is my 4th week. They are still looking neat which is surprising because I have not been tying the up with a scarf at night.
I have been washing them once a week, mainly cowashing with Suave Waterfall mist conditioner which also leaves a lovely scent to the braids. If you co-wash braids, you have to make sure that all the conditioner is rinsed off this will keep the braids shinier and reduce buildup. After the co-wash, I deep condition with Lorys chocolate deep conditioner mixed with olive oil. I then wait for the braids to dry slightly and spritz with the Glycerin moisturising spritz and massage my scalp with a mixture of olive oil and castor oil with a little rosemary essential oil. I also use a Garnier shine serum, this makes the braids look soooo shiny.
Daily or every two days, I spritz with my glycerin moisturising spritz then massage my scalp with a small amount of coconut oil/ olive + castor oil.
My hair at the front is kinda fuzzy but I think this makes the braids look better and more authentic. The hair on the braids surprisingly hasn't fuzzed up too much and still looks okay. I think I will take off the braids on Friday and clarifying shampoo, henna treatment and intense deep condition.
Have a lovely week
