Greetings guys! Hope everyone had a great weekend!
I decided to wash my hair today instead of yesterday like I promised. I missed a workout on Friday so I needed to make it up this morning, which bumped Wash Day a day.
Here’s how Wash Day went:
Pre-poo: Coconut oil, honey, Alberto V-05 Strawberries and Cream conditioner, safflower oil. I also do a tea rinse. Kept on hair for 1 hour, 40 of those minutes with heat
Shampoo: Alterna Life Solutions Clarifying Shampoo, Alterna Caviar Volume
In-Shower Conditioning Treatment: Alterna Caviar Conditioner, Ion Extreme Moisture cream, Alterna Rx Thermal Oil
Deep Conditioner: L’Oreal Total Repair 5 Damage-Erasing Balm, final rinse with Roux
Leave-ins: Alterna Caviar Photo Age Defense, Alterna Caviar Perfect Blowout Cream, Pureology Color Fanatic, Alterna Bamboo Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant Spray
**The Pureology Colour Fanatic is a leave-in spray that was a free sample from Ulta. It has coconut oil, fennel seed oil and a vegetable-based protein to strengthen hair. **
I blew my hair out as normal. Before and after blow-drying, I applied my Alterna Anti-Breakage Thermal Protectant spray for an added layer of protectant. After my entire head was dry, I parted it in six sections, applied some more Alterna Bamboo and blew the hair out on cool, just to seal the cuticle. I then applied 2 pumps of Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil to each side of my hair. The entire ordeal was pretty harmless. There was a knot of hair that broke off in the bottom layers, but other than that, it was all gravy! I was supposed to throw in some Carusos, but with my workout schedule, it honestly makes no sense to do so. I will just wear it up in a bun all week!
I have been worried since the salon ordeal that my hair was thinning and excessively shedding. I thought that blowing out my hair would let me assess any damage done. Honestly, my hair looks the same as it always does! Hemline is still a bit janky from my cutting (but I have a full hemline for the most part), hair is a good density. I am pleased! I am getting oh-so-close to WL! Honestly, it still doesn’t even feel real to me! It still seems like everyone else’s MBL/WL is so much longer than mine!!! #longhairproblems Hairorexia strikes again!
So here is my 2 year comparison shot! Full SL to licking WL in 2 years!!! Not so bad, if I must say so myself! 🙂
