Wash Day – Side Twists!

Hi ladies. How was your weekend? For some weird
reason I’ve fallen in love with side twists and how full they make my hair look
that I made side twists the whole of last week. Lol! I had an interview
yesterday so I did side twists again but with a faux bun. I love the side twist
and faux bun especially after I saw it on Keoshia’s blog – Mrsdoingme.

Here’s how my washday went;

  • Detangled with fingers, seamless comb and V05
    conditioner. I’ve never used a conditioner to detangle my hair before but I’ve
    been experiencing serious breakage and the conditioner helped a bit.
  • Washed hair twice with Olive Oil Creamy aloe
    shampoo. I used this shampoo again because I haven’t washed my hair in 2 weeks.
  • Deep conditioned with only Organics Hair Mayonnaise
    for 20 minutes with heat.
  • Applied my leave- ins Mega Profective Leave –in Strengthener
    and Aphogee Keratin Green Tea Restructurizer when my hair was 90% dry.
  • Sealed with Grapeseed oil and made my hair into
    braids to sleep.

Yesterday I loosened the braids and made side twists
with a faux bun for my interview. 

These edges must grow o!!
I love how full my hair is though
My hair has been breaking for 2 weeks now and
I think it’s a mixture of several things. Firstly,the crochet braids I loosened
may have contributed to the breakage as the tiny cornrows in front were quite
tight and painful. I should have known better. Secondly, I read that when using
Aphogee Keratin Restructurizer, a little goes long way and it should not be
used daily. Poor me!!! I was so excited when I bought this product that I used
it daily to moisturize so it may also be another reason for my breakage.
Lastly, my protein leave-in used to be Elasta Qp Olive Oil and Mango Butter and
I loved it but when I tried to replace it after it had finished it was out of
stock. I kept going back to the hair store but they still didn’t have it so I had
no choice than to try a new protein moisturizer which I didn’t like and that
led me to try Aphogee.
To cut the long story short, I’ve run out of options
and I’m considering texlaxing although I’m only 14 weeks post relaxer and was
hoping to stretch to 20 weeks before my next texlax. Currently, I’m just moisturizing
and sealing daily and protective styling to let my hair breathe. I’m also
thinking of washing every 2 weeks from now on.
I’m open to all suggestions. Thanks ladies!

Have a lovely week ahead.
