I have a confession. Are you ready for it?
I didn't deep condition my hair this week.
*Sits in awkward silence*
Well, see, what had happened was...I swear that this is the truth tho...
- Co-wash- I detangled my hair, applied Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner then layered a bit of extra virgin coconut oil. I let it sit for a while.
- Air dry- After rinsing the conditioner, I blotted my hair with a cotton t-shirt, applied a little extra virgin coconut oil in sections then wrapped it in the t-shirt to dry a bit more.
- Leave-ins- I applied a little Jessicurl Too Shea Conditioner and a dab of my hair butter then set my hair on about 6 bantu knots overnight.
When I rinsed the Tresemme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner from my hair, I didn't expect my hair to be that soft, that fluffy, or that moisturized. I thought to myself in the shower. "How wrong would it be to just stop right here." Don't look at me funny, girl. You know that you've had thoughts like that before! So I channeled my inner lazy and went with it!
So far incorporating a light/medium protein each week to help define my curls and encourage my curl pattern is working well. I honestly can't remember a time when my hair felt this moisturized for this long.
I had no intention on wearing a curly set this week. But my goodness, I was pretty siced about how much curl I got for only 6 bantu knots! And look at how well it stretches my hair! I just had to show you guys! My bantu knot situation before my chop was a mess. I had more unprocessed hair than relaxed hair, my roots would look thick and lush while my ends looked thin and limp.
The universe is always hating on my good hair days. It was SNOWING of allll things the morning that I unraveled my knots. So I twisted my hair up into this half halo crown updo and when outside to build a snowman. (our poor snowman melted by the afternoon tho...the universe was out to get him too...) Want a full tutorial on this style? Let me know!
