Rewind back to a few posts where I wrote about At Home Hair Spa. In that post I described how I spent a day pampering my hair with luxury products and how my hair felt wonderful even after seven days. Well, something happened the next time I needed to wash my hair. gehn gehn

I was told at the last-minute that I needed to travel by road, to my hometown in the East of Nigeria, (I live in the North), so without thinking it through, I drenched my hair in water and began shampooing. Shocked? Me too. My saving grace was that I used a moisturizing shampoo that I could finger detangle with in the shower so I removed most of the shed hairs without worry. However, the whole process happened so quickly that I ended up with the most cracks and split ends I had ever seen on my hair. Obviously, I was distraught but had no time to worry so I trimmed 1.5inches off at the next washday thinking I could start afresh with new ends. Ha!

Needless to say, the damage I had caused was deeper than 1.5inches of hair as the cracks and peels showed up on my dusted ends. 🙁 I had no clue at the time how I could solve this problem as my mind was focused on more important things so I put my hair up in box braids to leave it to rest for a while. As the stress of more manipulation on top my already fragile ends was not an option.

After I took out my braid attachment, the split ends were still there. Sigh* They obviously won’t heal themselves. 

I’ll write more in my next post on how I am dealing with this problem after taking an extra 2 inches off my hair. It also goes without saying, YOU SHOULD NEVER WASH YOUR NATURAL HAIR IN A RUSH as you may end up causing more damage in your quest to save time.
