This is a continuation of my last post..
Last night I oiled my ends and redid my bun ...I woke up this morning and went straight to the sink to wash my face and brush my teeth and I noticed that my bun and pony was completely loose..My hair was hanging out of an opening of my scarf in the back ....And was a tangled mess..DANG IT !!!!
I took a deep breath and removed my scarf and tried to de tangle my hair a little with my fingers but my hair was so over moisturized and soft ...It was way too fragile for any de tangling ...Having two textures right now only makes this moment more frustrating...My hair was so fragile it was scary...Waiting a couple of more days to do my protein was not a option at this point..
I went looking for my Aphogee 2 min Reconstructor and remembered I gave it to one of my girlfriends who desperately needed it...Ugh !!!
This was not how I wanted to start my day....I went and got one egg and whipped it ....I mixed in Garnier Fructis Fortifying Deep Conditioner 3 min Masque ( A protein conditioner I tried a while back and my hair hated it) ...Then mixed in Mane n Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner( light protein) ..Hoping this mix would be enough protein ...
I applied my mix to my whole head...Root to Tip...Put on my heating cap for 15 mins ...Jumped in the shower and rinsed.... My hair felt like its normal self ...Thank GOD !!! I then cleaned my hair and scalp with Hair One..I let that sit on my hair while I showered
After I got out the shower ...I now was facing the challenge of detangling this madness..I used Aphogee Pro Vitamin Leave In ( I only use this when I need protein) and Cantu Shea Butter Leave In on top of that ...
Next I grabbed my Mane n Tail Detangler, Wide Tooth Comb and found a comfortable spot on the floor and turned on a good movie...I knew I would be down there for a while..
In small sections ...I sprayed my hair with my detangler and went to work...Patience was key at this point....This was really one of those moments where I questioned myself for wanting such long hair....Middle Back hair was so much easier to take care of..Right now with six months new growth...I didn't feel like this was simple (KISS) ...I felt like this was way too much work....If you think I never get frustrated with my hair ...Someone lied to you...
Finally I was done de tangling...Aching shoulders and back..I was finally done....I added some Macadamia Oil to my hair ...Then took my Conair Paddle Brush and made sure I got most of my shedded hair out when I detangled...I braided my hair in two side loose french braids...Put some QP Mango Butter on the ends ....
I shedded more hair than I usually do...But not enough to be concerned...Just enough to make me happy that in less than 10 days I will be relaxing..
The only reason why this did not turn out a disaster was I took my time and detangled in small sections even though I was tired and my arms ached...Patience is key
Cause of my over moisturizing situation ???
To be honest the only thing I switch up on was..I was using Holly Beauty Olive Oil Creme Daily after I spritzed....I'm going to use this a couple of times of week instead of daily from here on out..
