Aubrey Organics: Glycogen Protein Balancing Conditioner

In a recent post I griped about the affects of  color on my natural hair. I decided to give protein a try to strengthen my hair  and curb and impending breakage due to cuticle damage from the color.  In the past I’ve tried a homemade concoction using eggs (disaster) as well as the Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor; I was not impressed with either.

About protein:  Protein treatments temporarily repair and strengthen hair by filling gaps in the cuticle and a small amount can also penetrate the cortex

Amazon.com:$10.99, Vitacost.com:$8.19 (Neither price includes shipping), The Vitamin Shoppe:$10.93 for 11 ounces

I purchased 16 ounces for $18.99 from Amazon.com

Natural Hair Milestone: The Pompadour & Low Pony Hairstyle

I finally was able to achieve a low pony!

Happy Friday!

This week, I tried to avoid wearing my fro’ out.  Since I BC’d, I’ve been wearing my hair out constantly, which is completely unlike me. As a transitioner, I was an avid protective styler.  I realize that less handling of my hair will yield healthier hair so I’m trying to re-create some styles I wore during my transition on my fully natural hair.  Some styles I’ve not been able to re-create because my hair is shorter than it was during my transition. At any rate, I’m trying styles that are both professional (for work), funky (after work), and still fall into the category of protective styling.

Is Protective Styling for Everyone?

Roll and Tuck Protective Styles

One of my go-to resources for natural hair talk is the black girl long hair site.
Today the topic of discussion was whether or not PS-ing worked for everyone.
