Hair: Wash Day with Protein Treatment

This is the end result

So, it's been 2 weeks since the last time I washed my hair. I was prepared to go right into the next sew-in style, but the state of my hair is pretty dire. I don't really think from wearing weaves per se, but really just the fact that my hair is dyed and dried out.

Oh, and I haven't had a trim in forever.

My hair is still with protein treatment

Yupp, you see that PCOS hair 

So, I am taking control of my hair care regime, or lack thereof. Last week I used the LOC method, and this week I am excited to use the LCO method and see how my hair likes that. Ok, so let's get into what I did for my wash day:

  1. Separate hair into 4 sections
  2. Coated my hair in a coconut oil and rosemary oil mix
  3. Covered hair with a plastic bag for 1 hour
  4. Detangled my hair with a medium wide tooth comb
  5. Washed my scalp with Camille Rose Naturals Sweet Ginger Cleansing Rinse once
  6. Saturated hair in Aphogee Two-step Treatment Protein
  7. Co-washed hair with Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer mixed with Camille Rose Naturals Moroccan Pear Conditioning Custard
  8. Detangled hair with this conditioner mix in hair with fingers and comb
  9. Rinsed with apple cider vingar and water
  10. Sprayed Bella Curls Coconut Water Mist
  11. Applied Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter
  12. Sealed with sweet almond oil
  13. Twisted hair

Damn, Who says natural hair care is easier? I remember in the relaxer days all I did was wash my hair 2-3 weeks after my perm, condition, apply heat until the next time for another perm. Oh, and grease my scalp. And dye the hell out of my hair. Those days are over...

All in all this process takes like 2.5hrs. It takes that long because of the wait time because I don't use heat on my hair. I will do a protein treatment every 6 weeks. The washing and detangling process is a breeze now. Oil is the key. And snipping my ends after I twist my hair. Not the most ideal for a trim, but I'm not picky about how my curls fall. I usually end up cutting layers that look good.

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
