Finally!!!!! A wash day. I’ve been stretching the wash days because it’s actually been helping with the moisture, but thanks to a couple of 14 degree days, I was paranoid my hair was dried out and decided it was time for a cut anyway.
Started with Redken Cleansing Cream. Yum!
Protein conditioned with Nexxus Youth Renewal Step 2. This stuff is basically a protein treatment with pearl, elastin, keratin and wheat proteins. All hydrolyzed of course (of course). My hair felt like a million bucks afterwards.
Next, I used Keracare Humecto. I hate the glycerin content, but I figured using it under the steamer was ok. My hair felt a little dry after, but as I straightened it, it got better.
I hope in another year, I can master a wash and go. I think I have the hair for it.
I used CHI Keratin Mist, then followed with Fantasia (the one in the pink bottle) and blew my hair out. I met all those tangled ends I hide from during twist outs, but they were pretty kind. I blew my hair out on high, working from the ends up, then flat ironed 1/4″ sizes at 430 degrees (I know). Only 1 glorious heat pass. I also use the chase method, in which I use a paddle brush in front of the flat iron as I do the heat pass.
I don’t blow my hair I the point that I smell it burning or it smokes. I blow it enough until I feel it’s straight enough and without having tangles or frizz. Once it smokes or burns, it’s too late.
This below, it’s what my crow looks like after 4 years. My crown breakage is finally crown repaired 🙂
This was the end result. I’m sorry, my husband was sleep so I couldn’t get a good length check. Sucks to be me. But that V is back. I’m done chasing it. I’m just gonna let it be great. I’m past bra strap length, so at mid back length, but by Summer’s should be a full mid back length.
How do you use heat?
