Yesterday I took out my senegalese twists and was excited to give my hair a good cleaning. Unfortunately, it really didn’t turn out that way.
1. I washed with the Suave Rosemary Mint shampoo thinking that because it is a sulfate shampoo my hair would get really clean. I found out later that was not the case. It could also be due to the fact that I was being lazy and washed my hair as a whole in the sink as opposed to sections.
2. I deep conditioned with Hydratherma Naturals Amino Plus Conditioning Treatment. This stuff smells exactly like Nexxus Humectress and my hair smells like it still the next day. It was my first time using this conditioner and I think I should have just used the Aphogee Two Step Treatment. I may do that next week actually…maybe…
3. I detangled my hair with a comb for once using the Qhemet Biologics Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee sample. I really didn’t care for it as I’ve used better detangling products. I used a wide tooth shower comb to detangle.
5. I combed each section of hair with a fine tooth comb before two strand twisting. I wanted to make sure all the knots and tangles were out from having my twists in so long. I rubbed a little coconut oil all over my hair to seal when I was done.
The result: This morning my hair was extremely soft. Too soft. I now know what people mean when they say their hair is mushy because that is exactly how mine was this morning. I did not like it. And to top it off, my hair is still dirty and dull as ever! The twistout was just horrid so I wore it in a ponytail. I hope this gets better soon.
