3 Month Hair Update
It has been a 3 whole months since I cut off my locs! I am still loving my really teeny twa. Since my BC in January I haven't cut my hair and I mostly just wash and go. On the days when I've gone to dance, yoga or both I do a cowash because I get really sweaty. On average I'm cowashing my hair about 4 times a week and my hair seems to be happy with that. My routine is cowash, leave-in conditioner and seal with an oil (currently my homemade coconut & shea butter mixture). Before I go to bed, I'll spritz my hair and then seal the moisture in with an oil. I shampoo about every two weeks and use a deep conditioner on shampoo days. All in all very simple, just the way I like it. I am still taking my MSM and biotin which I think are awesome and I'm crediting these supplements with the thickness and strength of my hair. I've also started ingesting a tablespoon of hemp seed oil, but more on that in another post. I listen to my hair and give it what it needs, which most of the time is moisture. Nice, simple and easy. When I feel like doing something different or defining my curls I'll use good 'ole Eco Styler Olive Oil Styling Gel to define my curls. I'm enjoying this stage of my hair it's simple and easy, what more could a girl ask for:)
