Am 1 week 4 days post today!
After relaxing my hair last week, i kept it in a wash n go style and as such didn’t comb my hair for that entire week. When it started to look messy i wore it up in a textured ponytail.
At exactly 1 week post, i did a strengthening treatment (henna). I first started off by washing my hair using Enliven shampoo. I don’t normally shampoo my hair before hennaing, but i felt that my hair had a lot of product buildup that needed to be first washed off.
I let my hair air dry completely before applying the henna (which i had prepared hours earlier). I used 100g of henna.
After hennaing for several hours, i rinsed my hair and then did a deep conditioning treatment.
After an hour or so i rinsed off the deep conditioner. By then it was pretty late and i had to go out and pick up a few things for supper so i just clipped my hair up and headed out. I didn’t even attempt to dry it, i just squeezed the excess water out because i didn’t want it to dry quickly.
When i got back, i lightly misted it with water, applied some leave-in conditioner, and some coconut oil and then i finally braided it like so…
I kept the braids in the next day (Wednesday) since i was home all day that day but on Thursday, Friday and today, i rocked a braidout.
