Am 4 weeks post relaxer today!
Am back to blogging after a week long absence so here is what i’ve been up to to since last Friday…
I wore my hair in a bantu-knot out last Saturday…thought i should do something different to my hair since i was going to my Grandma’s. Lets just say that that was a major fail! My hair was all over the place and frizzy. I just ended up pinning it back (thank God for the numerous bobby pins i had in my handbag) At the end of that day my hair was rather dry.
On Sunday night i did an oil prepoo, then a full strength henna treatment the following day. This time round, application was easier and so everything went smoothly. I had 2 extra pairs of gloves too after last weeks fiasco 😀
I only kept the henna in my hair for 2 and a half hours then rinsed it out and did a cowash. I have to use a lot of conditioner after the henna treatment because my hair never feels as soft as i would like it to and the henna takes forever to rinse out out.
A few more…
I got distracted after leaving the bathroom and as a result i totally forgot to apply my leave-in conditioner and moisturize and seal my hair! Because of this, my hair didn’t dry soft and it was quite frizzy. So the following day (Tuesday) i just rinsed it with plain water in the shower and proceeded with the usual product application.
I decided to do 2 french braids since i was going to be home all week (mostly indoors).
On Wednesday evening i had to go out so i took down the braids for a braid out look. I redid the braids later that night and kept them in till now (Friday). I will wear my hair out today in a braid out then maybe a curly ponytail tomorrow (Saturday) then wash my hair on Sunday.
Thats pretty much this weeks’ hair update.
In other news, has Nairobi ran out of conditioners? Or more specifically the “Enliven conditioner?”
I love this conditioner, and the last time i saw it in the supermarket, i stocked up on it. But now i have one bottle left and i can’t seem to find it being sold anywhere! It always goes out of stock like this which is why i stock up when i can. I hate to think that i might have to switch to something else.
One other thing, i think i will have to bring my personal weekly henna challenge to a halt. I believe my hair is doing great because last weekend, my cousin -Charity touched my hair and said that it felt strong. I couldn’t tell, possibly because i’m always touching it but she seemed amazed so i guess the henna treatments worked. I’ll probably do another henna treatment after a month or so.
