Happy New Year!

After a busy holiday season and much anticipation for 2017, I am excited to be back to blogging! I am so thankful for being able to see another year and I am looking forward to what is going to happen this year!

 

Moving forward! So to kick off the new year I want to discuss some popular topics! One being my wash routine and the second being my hair type! For my wash routine, I try to keep a regimen of every week, but life sometimes gets in the way of that! I start off by sectioning my hair into 4 sections, then I use my fingers to detangle to get out the big tangles and knots and then I follow up with spraying down each section with a mixture of aloe vera juice and water. I use a wide toothed comb to detangle my hair, it makes it so much easier for my thick hair than using a brush. After I detangle each section I put it back into the four individual sections and head to the shower. For products, it really depends on what I am in the mood for. Lately I have been sticking to shampoos, my hair has not been responding well to cowashing so I stopped doing this a few months ago. So on my most previous wash day this past weekend I used the Trader Joes Tea Tree shampoo on each section. After washing and rinsing each section, I then applied the Shea Moisture Raw Shea butter conditioner, applied my plastic shower cap and showered. After that, I rinsed out the conditioner and was pleased at the butter-like texture that was my strands. Afterwashing and conditioning I usually keep my hair in the same four sections and either braid or twist each section for stretching. My hair styles are so much better when it's stretched. After my hair is 80 % dry, I will style my hair. For this particular wash day I did a flexi rod set using just coconut oil and the argan oil ecostyler gel. I was very please with my results. I have inserted a picture along with my flower crown!

Lastly, hair typing, after almost 3 years of being natural I have finally determined I have type 4B hair. Which is odd because I just knew for sure I had 4C hair for the bulk of my journey but we learn new things every day right?

Thank you guys so much for reading! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to add them below!

 

May Peace Find You Always! XOXO
