So between being the habitual nerd and regimen building, I have been trying to conquer this natural lifestyle.
I’ve had wash days, but it’s the products that make and break my wash days.
This is my last wash day. I made my own conditioner which I’m still trying out. Made two different kinds.
I used my PBN Murmuru Moisture Milk, but didn’t use any oil. After 3 days, super dry hair. Lesson learned. So now my next wash day, I washed and used my conditioner again. Then I used Eden Bodyworks Shea and Coconut curling creme which is kinda jelly/creme but supposed to give definition. Finished with oil.
Result? Disaster. Why? I don’t know. My guess is that it needed more of a moisturizer on top of it. I’ve been reading up on curling custard and finishing paste and a lot of them seem like they “accidentally” work better if you treat them like glycerine and add a moisturizer on top of it.
So during the week, I used my Silk Dreams Wheat Germ Butter and they results was:
Mind you, my hair was looking a total mess beforehand. It just needed to be loved a little more.
Daily, I’m tempted to cut more and weekly I’m tempted relax this sucker 80% straight, but I rebuke temptation and keep it moving.
I’m just trying to find products that work better on my hair, but I think what I really need is a better regimen. It’s not what I use but how I’m applying them. I know one thing though…. Protein use getting less and less…..
Getting it all figured out.
One Day, It Will Happen
