So the day I posted my review on Amal Oils I did my hair that day (sunday) sticking to the same regimen. I shampooed with dr bronner’s castile soap diluted, La Plancha, and nacidt avocado with organic argan oil. This time I did not use argan oil as a leave in, I used it for flat ironing instead. I decided to flat iron since I went out that evening and wanted to wear my hair out for a change. So I rollerset my hair as usual but this time I flat ironed.
I stayed in my dryer for my usual hour reading and these were the results hot off the rollers.
Right after, I combed the curls out and wrapped my hair in a dubbie wrap.
A wrap helps flatten my roots much better as well as helps tone down the volume the rollers tend to give my hair.
I just wrapped it in a scarf for about an hour. Then flat ironed my hair with my conair flat iron. Yeah it’s a cheapie but for me, it gets the job done.
These were the results after flat ironing. Pretty decent I think. I did not use a heat protectant (I know it’s almost a sin lol) but I think I threw out my chi iron guard by mistake when I was doing my product cleaning in Sept. Oh well. But I did use a small amount of Amal Oils Argan oil for a bit of shine especially towards my ends while flat ironing and loved how my hair came out incredibly soft.
I love how nacidt avocado finally was good for something. Thanks to the argan oil of course.
So these were the results later that day. Very soft and shiny hair. I’m very pleased with the progress I have made with my hair. However, since that weekend I have been very lazy in terms of caring for my hair. I’ve been way too busy on the weekends lately so it’s been hard trying to keep up.
So what I have ben doing is keeping it simple. I have been shampooing with dr. bronners castile soap and conditioning with hello hydration. Air drying then moisturizing and sealing with my hair slightly damp. And that’s it. No treatments or deep conditioning for the past two weeks. I feel that my hair has gotten healthy enough so it can handle a weekend or two without any treatments. I also wear my hair in buns quite often especially for work so protective styling is also in the mix.
This weekend is another story. Right now I’m under the dryer after babying my hair today. I again used the same regimen and used up nacidt avocado finally. This time I put my beloved argan oil to rest and used another oil I got from sally’s last year ( I’m serious about using everything!). Now I just have maybe one more treatment with nacidt Olive oil, my last DC to use up.
I have been very diligent with my hair so I deserved the small break.
As far as my natural regimen it’s coming along. I have purchased a few items and can’t wait to use up every product I have left to start trying out the different concoctions I have in mind. I’ll share my goodies and recipes I have in mind soon.
