Why do I protective style? That's a very good question. I'm glad you asked. For me protective styling, which is in definition the putting away of your hair, specifically your ends. Some see it as a way to retain length, allow their hair to rest, or if you're like me, you sometimes get tired of styling your hair and you yourself need a break. Now I know there are those of you out there that don't see a necessity for protective styling and that's fine, to each his own. But for me, its essential to my natural hair journey. I will be inserting a picture of my most recent protective style and in the hair section I'll be inserting protective styles I've done in the past. I keep my protective styles in for about 1 week, oiling my scalp throughout the week. By then i''m ready for my big hair to be back! LOL! I know that the true definition of protective styling is to tuck your ends away, but styles like mini twists, I feel are considered protective. You're not constantly manipulating your hair, causing breakage. OKAY, onto the review. So for this week's wash day I used a shampoo and conditioner by YELANI, which I received at a hair event I went to last year. These products are amazing. All natural ingredients that are specifically geared towards healthy, natural hair. The shampoo (Build-Up Blaster Clarity Shampoo) and the conditioner (Moisture Blast Conditioning Shampoo) are a bit watery in consistency and there are no suds BUT for me it's all about the cleanliness of your hair not if there are suds or not. As soon as the shampoo hit my scalp my hair softened. I couldn't believe it! It's very rare you have so much slip with just shampoo! After shampooing I followed up with the conditioner and I was able to finger detangle that throughout my strands! AMAZING! I absolutely give this product and 10 out of 10. There's some type of magic in these bottles. I will definitely purchase this after I have used this up. My package also included a leave- in conditioner and a co-wash that I look forward to using soon! I hope you guys enjoyed this product review as well as my discussion on protective styling!
May Peace. Find You. Always! XOXO
