Moisture is the key to the growth and health of black hair. I recently changed my hydration regime because, while I was religiously moistening my hair, they were still very dry. I discovered that although I was blogging and blogging about hair care in Africa like Curly Nikki, I was not paying attention to what the contributors wrote. I think that because my hair had grown 5 inches in 6 months (when I had never had any growth due to breakage) and that I had completely repaired the damaged sections of my hair, I thought my diet was perfect. Boy I was wrong!
First, I mixed about three tablespoons of coconut oil and one tablespoon of olive oil and heated them in the microwave (not too hot). Then I wet my hair, soaked it with hot oil and put on a warming cap for about 30 minutes. Then, I washed (washed with the conditioner) the oil from my hair, sprayed the silky Hawaiian conditioner and let my hair dry in the air. Once dry, I hydrated my scalp with my jojoba mixture, which consists of 5 drops of rosemary, 2 drops of lavender per one tablespoon of jojoba oil. Then I separate my hair into 11 large sections, turn each section, put on a satin cap and everything is ready.
With this regiment, I did not paint myself much, at best once a month. I found that the disentanglement with the fingers while the machine wash worked very well. Their common knowledge in the African natural hair care community is that our hair should not be combed or combed too much and it does not work for me when I grew my hair all winter long.
My hair would only be flexible for a day in this regiment. Literally, it would dry on the second day, even after a new spray with the entrance. Coago two or three times a week, one because I can not stand this bad smell of hair and twice, the washing allows me to moisten a little. Although some consider three washes a week a little too much for dry hair, this is the only way to find this flexibility.
My hair had always been great, it was dry and I thought I had to live with it and do everything possible to keep it wet as long as possible. After eight months of treatment, I realized that I needed to do something to stay hydrated. So I resumed my investigation. I spent a few hours with Curly Nikki instead of just going a few minutes and here, I came across a message of a sista with the cruelest Afro I’ve ever seen in my life! One of the first things he wrote was about how dry his hair was and then he described his wet regiment.
When washing, use about five types of conditioners and do not rinse! Also, if you feel that your hair is a bit dry between two deep washes, it will be sprayed in more conditioner! First I thought that all this conditioner would cause a large accumulation and end up being harmful, but the truth is that everything that the general public is telling us about the natural care of African hair is late. Basically we can do the opposite of what others do with their hair, especially in the case of conditioning. After all, his hair is amazing! She has maintained this regiment for almost six years and her hair is beautiful, so all this conditioning must work.
During my research, I found an article about oil tightness. The article describes how the seal blocks the type of moisturizer you use and helps keep your hair hydrated. I never sealed my hair. I told myself that, as the hot oil treated my hair, I used to grease my scalp and use a rich license, I did not need to pour in more oil. However, I was still very dry between the joint washes, even when I added more carelessness, so everything I did did not work and my hair told me it was time to move on.
