My laptop is playing nice again..even though I’ve still got fingers crossed! I dropped a but load of money to get it fixed so I’m just a tad nervous these days as I type…lol!
But I have to admit, it’s been frustrating, not only with my PC sickness but with my hair as well. I went off course this past week, choosing to wash and style my hair on Friday as opposed to Sunday which threw a couple of things out of whack. I had an event to look snazzy for and wanted the do to look just right…which it absolutely did! I pre-pooed with AOWC mixed with water, washed with Alaffia’s Neem Shampoo (added oils yet again), DC’d with AOHR, cold rinsed then styled with KCKT under Donna Marie’s Lock & Twist Pudding. I’d started the whole process around…6:30’ish Thursday evening and finished by 12am. I’d finished twisting by 9:30-10 and immediately began drying with my soft bonnet under the lowest setting. Ironically, with all that drying time, my hair was STILL not dry by morning.
Yah…frustrating was the word of the week, waking up in the a.m. to damp twists knowing I had an event to attend that evening. So, frizz was sort of inevitable with damp twists…I did try my best not to manipulate it too much…after sealing each twist with Afroveda’s Hemp Butter I carefully let each go to do whatever. Before leaving the house, I applied my trusty KBB hair cream for shine and ceased upon the ‘ol HIFS.
My hair did withstand the test of a normal work day, and I attended the event happy and confident in my hair….ehhhh, but I knew I’d be in for something lacking in the coming week. The Process was a good one…but I was definitely hasty in applying product…a.k.a…I overapplied KCKT along with the Pudding. The end result next day was over-moisturized strands that did not turn soft…instead turned a bit brittle and lacked my normal shine.
Today’s Tuesday and I’m nowhere near ready or willing to start down the lane of wash, style etc., which is unfortunate because what my hair needs right now is a good clarifying rinse ( I sorely miss my ACV), a good DC (under my heating cap) and styling minus the rush. I’ve made the mistake of over-moisturizing before, and already know how to reduce frizz when drying hair so in essence I brought this on myself…lol! Monday was headband day…today was headband + pinup…
Wednesday, Thursday, Friday,…..Bun, Bun…BUN!
