So I was lazy lazy LAZY this past wash session. I ended up leaving the (wash out) conditioner in for an entire week. The first couple of days my scalp was on fire, but I just didn’t have the time or energy to rinse it out and take the time to style (a 2+ hour process). So about a week later, I finally took the time to rinse and style (four braids) and have barely touched it since then.
I midweek moisturized around Wednesday and then twisted it instead of braiding it. Finally tried that as I am daily moisturizing butter. Not a huge fan (will do a review later).
But anywho, I’ve been drinking lots of water, taking my vitamins, making sure my hair is moisturized, and really just trying to get back into the groove of having it in its natural state. If you remember, I had it straight for almost six weeks!
I’m happy to report there was no heat damage. A tiny bit of loosening of my front section, but honestly I’ve resigned myself to accepting that that will happen every time I straighten b/c the curl is so loose in the front to begin with and that’s the finest part of my hair :(…any heat (even moderate, infrequent heat) does a little something it. The rest of my hair reverted perfectly and looks the exact same.
Anywho, update over!!! Lol
Enjoy your MLK day!

I DID!!! Best decision I could’ve made. Ask any questions you’d like, I love talking about Howard.
Anonymous asked: When you twist out and go to bed..how do you tie it up at night?
Depends on how lazy I’m feeling :). Sometimes I do a high, loose bun and then tie on my scarf; other times I twist my hair into about four twists and then pull it into a loose ponytail and tie on my scarf. I think it lasts so long now b/c the moisturizer I recently added to my regimen is a pretty good styling product lol.
