A few weeks ago I gave my hair some much needed TLC. Work has pretty much consumed most of my time and desire to do much with my hair. Although I have stuck with deep conditioning every weekend, no matter my schedule, my hair has been suffering pretty much in between mostly due to laziness and neglect. So I decided to add a few extra treatments to bring it back to life starting with a coconut oil and honey pre-poo treatment.
Honey never fails my hair. It always leaves my hair shiny and soft so I had to work it into a treatment. Coconut oil added to the mix helps strengthen and add moisture to my hair as well. I decided to warm the honey and oil because I wanted to do it on slightly dry hair. So I warmed the mix for easier distribution throughout my hair.
In a double boiler (my way!) I added the ingredients. Left it in my hair for about an hour (20 mins under the dryer). Then shampooed my hair with Giovanni Tea tree to help clarify.
I like this shampoo first time trying Giovanni products and so far loving it.
The Tea tree Invigorating shampoo leaves my scalp clean and fresh! I followed up my routine with Queen Helene's Cholesterol (added a little bit of avocado oil) went under the dryer for 20 mins, rinsed and followed up with Giovanni's Conditioner.
I went with a little bit of salerm 21 as a leave in. Did my roller sets and went under the dryer..... these were the results.
I haven't been doing much to my hair. Shame on me I've been hitting up the salon quite often (although it's been 2 months since direct heat) so I'm doing some minor damage control.
I then wrapped my hair for a slightly straight wavy look. Overall I was left with soft shiny hair as expected. My hair is in pretty good shape just that I'm due for a trim soon since my ends are a bit burnt. Otherwise maintenance and limited heat has been the name of the game. I'm looking for a solid regimen I may come up with one soon since I need to start babying my hair again.
