So yep, I haven’t posted in awhile, but I wanted to give my update. I made my three (3) year mark in October and so far I have not regretted going Natural. At first, I thought it would be more time consuming, but it really isn’t.
- Sunday – Slap on cheap conditioner. Sit with a plastic cap while watch a movie. Rinse out. Add Shea butter* to each individual twist and twist is back up. About 2 hours
- Monday – Saturday – Spray bottle filled with only Water and spray hair at night. Twist up into eight (8) two-pair twists. Place on satin night cap. In Morning, Spray hair with water again, take out twits, slick back with 100% Aloe Vera gel, tie down and remove after 1 hour commute to work.
- Monthly – Trim Ends….That is if I can remember to do that.
*Shea butter lasts a VERY long time. I melt it down in the microwave, and then add Jojoba, Almond, and a bit of lavender oil. Mix it up, and sit it out to allow it to harden. I add it right after my newly-washed hair and twists. I did buy some shea butter that was much too YELLOW and I don’t bit like it. I’m using it all up as I speak now, but I’ll look into buying it from another supplier next time. I buy mine from Amazon.com
So, just wanted to give an updated post on what’s going on with my natural. The length is definitely coming along, and I’m almost at the length I had when I was permed. I do really enjoy my hair now than ever!
Until Next Time!
