Dealing With 10-Week Post Hair

I doubt I’m the only one that finds it difficult dealing with 9+ weeks worth of new growth, but none of the “conventional” solutions seem tobe working for me anymore. I’m currently at 11 weeks and the last 2 weeks have been challenging! I fully understand why some opt to make their life simpler and relax sooner to avoid all the drama. This month has been an expensive one for me so I’m prolonging the salon...

Bad Hair Week

This week was plagued with hair challenges. Allow me to share. 1st mistake: I missed my wash day last weekend  and never got around to it until Tuesday.  By that time my hair was limp, on the greasy side, itchy and just looking bad.  On Tuesday I did a second dandruff wash, followed by Keracare Anti-Dandruff Conditioner and Kenra MC and leave-ins. 2nd mistake: No deep conditioning. 3rd mistake: Instead of my usual roller-setting I...

‘Mid-Week’ Wash Experience

Ohhh…I need to share my mid week wash experience! ******WARNING!!!****** Excitement Contained Within! Tuesday night I did a ‘mid-week’ wash.  Something I rarely do.  Washing my hair twice a week is not  part of my regular schedule simply because I do not have the time.  It takes a fair amount of effort to come home from a full day’s work to cook or study or clean or be a good companion (or any combination of)...

Wash Day:Ojon

This wash day I decided to give the Ojon gift pack I received for Xmas another go.  This was about the third time I’ve used it. First up was the Restorative Mask.  As directed I covered my hair with the restorative mask and combed through for even distribution.  Since I was busy, that stayed on for about 9-10 hours while I got some work done. I then shampooed with the Hydrating Shampoo about 3 times (my hair felt very coated)...

Cowash, Wet-bun and Scarf Method

Gym + Thick new growth = disastrous hair days. I’m back in the gym, I go about 3 times a week.  This week was especially challenging because my hair didn’t seem to want to co-operate at all.  I don’t think I’ve ever used so much moisturizer, glycerin or Wave Nouveau finishing lotion in one week!  By Tuesday evening it really hit home that it wasn’t even mid-week and I needed to get my hair under control...

Wash Day: Lazy Wash Day

Wash Day: Lazy Wash Day

Yesterday was wash day – a lazy one. A lazy wash day is one where you know you need to wash your hair but you don’t have the will or energy to do it so you take numerous shortcuts. That was me yesterday. It was nothing special but I took the opportunity to try some products that were sitting in my product stash. I didn’t pre-poo this weekend (lazy wash day remember?)… I just didn’t have the time or rather...
