Natural Hair November Updates!

It’s been a minute but I’m back! It’s been hectic so I just wanted to update you on where I am in my Newly Natural Hair Journey!

Currently, I am 2.5 years post relaxer, 6 months post BC.

I’ve been beside myself since I BC’d; I’ve been so enamored with my hair that I’ve abandoned my tried and true protective styling for the most part.

My plan is to return to protective styling for at least 4-5 days a week and let it all hang out on the weekends.

I colored my hair at the end of October, which IMO, has weakened my hair. Though it’s growing out, I’m sure I’m not retaining length

The worst thing about having this color is I don’t even notice it most times. Recently my boss and another co-worker noticed I have color at all. Feels like such a waste.

As a result of the color process, I noticed that my hair is shedding more and I have more single strand knots (ssk).

YEA, those...

To temporarily stop the breakage and strengthen my hair, I purchased Aubrey Organics: Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner

Amazon.com: $18.99, Vitacost.com: $8.19 (Neither price includes shipping), The Vitamin Shoppe: $10.93...Clearly, I overpaid!

Though I’ve only used this product once recently, I am in love with it!  I plan to integrate this product into my routine by using GPB bi-weekly; on the weeks I do not use the product, I will use my regular Deep Conditioner (O.R.S Root Stimulator Replenishing DC).

I’ve also been working on some great D.I.Ys for the holiday season!
