I didn’t go through my full wash process this time due to time restrictions. Instead, I co washed using Tresemme conditioner only, then applied The Mane Choice deep conditioner before sitting under the steamer. I know, I know; I’m not supposed to skip the pre-poo step & I always doctor up my conditioner, but I’m kind of happy I didn’t. This way the steamer had to work twice as hard or so I thought; I still received a rocking result. The steamer does say not to wash out the product after steaming, but the deep conditioner I used had to be rinsed out. I then went on to style my hair as usual starting with my DIY detangler, Moisturize Me, and flat twisted. I kept it like that for most of the week and took it out on Sunday.
The left side & front ends were pin curled but the twists coming from the right side were twisted into each other. I should’ve pin curled those ends too because they were stringy instead of curly. To fix my blunder, I pinned that side creating a cute back swoop. That’s one of the beauties of being natural, even when my style doesn’t come out the way I planned, there’s always a pin to save the day. The moisture retention is what has me really excited; so much so that I can’t wait to wash this week.
Sadly, I’m still in search of a natural hair stylist that’s not scissor happy to shape my fro or give me a nice even trim. I’m willing to let them cool dry my hair to cut it even, but I’m not interested in straightening to cut though. Once I meet the right stylist, I know I’ll receive the answer to my question and be able to share with you guys. Until next time…..Shauntay
