So, this last wash day I had been laying on my couch with dead hair a week. Friday, I finally decided to find my feet and some energy to do my hair.
So I washed with Shea Moisture Deep Cleansing Shampoo. It clarified, but it was not stripping. I tried using it diluted (50/50 solution) and it was ok but concentrated was much better for me. I also had to let it sit for about a minute. I have thick strands, so if your are on the medium side, I would recommend a 50/50 poo/water solution and if your hair is fine, a 70/30 solution. Why? Because I can see this stuff being strong. If you are interested in it, try it just once concentrated and if it is too much, use it concentrated. My relaxed hair ironically could not use it diluted, but the texlaxed and new growth could.
Followed up with Curl Junkie Curl Fix. This stuff has aloe, a low po’s nightmare, but as much as I did not like the clumping and stiffness, in a protein treatment I was not unhappy with the final result. I left it in for 15 minutes with heat. My only complaint about this product is that you need a lot and it is not worth the price to usage repurchase 😦 That review is left for another time.
Followed that with Silk Dreams Shea What! for an hour under heat.
Roller set with my usual bottled water and CHI Silk Infusion and sat under my hooded dryer. I actually used my larger rollers for straighter hair this time.
I realized a few things:
First, after the using the Shea Moisture, I realize I do not need to use a medium or hard protein often. A light protein will suffice because this shampoo is gentler.
Second, its bitter cold out there. I have to break out more “watery” deep conditioners and its time seal with butter instead of oils.
Third, Im 13.5 weeks post. Go. Head. Me.
One Day, It Will Happen
