My last couple wash days have been HORRIBLE. I decided I would go back to basic for a while and figure out what needs to be done.
I started with Redken Cleansing Cream and left it on each side for about a minute.
I followed up and used L’oreal damage repair 5 shampoo on my ends only.
Then I used Millcreek Botanicals Keratin Conditioner and applied L’Oreal damage repair 5 balm on top of it for about 5 minutes.
I rinsed and detangled at the same time. It doesn’t have super slip, but it worked really well.
I proceeded to roller set and because my hair was so soft and manageable I almost forgot the use my CHI Silk Infusion.
I sat under the dryer for 50 minutes and didn’t really get to appreciate my hair because of a screaming child. So, this morning I took out my hair and was surprised by the softness but still couldn’t appreciate it. I did get to see the back (for like a minute, screaming child) and I liked the difference. It doesn’t tempt me to cut like I always want to.
What I specifically liked about the L’Oreal line was that it made my hair soft, a tad shiny (the bone laxed hair), manageable and stronger. It also worked on my texlaxed and bonelaxed hair instead of one or the other.
It’s a little hard to see here but my length and ends look pretty good.
This is where my bangs go.
This is the length that’s still goes about MBL.
So, I think my ends came out really good because I used the shampoo there as well as conditioner. The other parts look and feel good, but I’ll try to use it another 4-6 times before making a good assessment. Then I’ll go back to my other conditioners or use this in conjunction.
Welp, wash days are here again!
