I have been taking care of my hair while in braids. So as I took them out, my hair was soft and easy to manage. I need to find a really good shampoo to wash my hair. I will list the products I use to wash, conditioner and moisturized my hair with.
I used Cantu Shea Butter Shampoo. It has a pH of 6.0, which I find most shampoo's have. I only washed my hair once with it and then rinsed it out with cold water. I conditioner my hair with Suave Natural Coconut Conditioner which has a pH of 6.0. I then added Aloe Vera Juice, which brought it to a pH of 5.0. I detangled my hair with a detangling comb from Sally's for about $2. I did deep conditioner my hair with a recipe I found for Naptural85 YT site. It was a mixture of mayo, apple cider vinegar, honey, eggs, and olive oil. It made my hair really hard and unmanageable, so I just co-washed my hair with my Suave conditioner mix. I then spritzed my hair with a mixture of glycerin, water, and peppermint essential oil which has a pH of 7. Then added a Tui Leave in Conditioner by Carol's Daughter, which has a pH of 4.0.
I styled my hair with EcoStyler Olive Oil Gel. It has a very high ph of 6.5, so I added Aloe Vera Juice, which brought it down to 5.0. I like the style but it made my hair really shrink, but still cute. I did trim my ends the best I could because there was still some pieces of relaxer still left over. Plus, I do need to get a good cut to shape my TWA a little better
Next day, I spritz my hair with my glycerin mix, and Tui Leave in Conditioner, some coconut oil and my shea butter mixture. And just pretty much fluffed my hair out and put a headband to make a small puff.
I am so excited to see the progress of my journey and photo video coming soon of my progression. Thanks for the support loves....muah
