Hi people! Welcome to the month of November. Yes I know I am three days late but this is my first post of the month.

Since I took out my braids I have taken a low maintenance approach to taking care of my hair just incase I damaged it whilst protective styling.

So below are what I have done so far:

  • Finger detangled my hair
  • Sectioned it in chunky twists
  • Pre-poo (pre shampoo) with Taliah Waajid mist modifier since I had a lot already in my hair and, coated my strands with olive oil and left it overnight.
  • I used Lush Jumping Juniper to Shampoo (review coming soon).
  • Deep conditioned with Cantu Shea Butter Deep Treatment Masque (review also coming soon for all the Cantu Shea Butter products I bought). I left the DC in for 30 minutes under a steamer and rinsed it all out.
  • Final rinse was with diluted Apple Cider Vinegar
  • Used a microfibre towel to remove excess water from my hair
  • Applied Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Repair Cream and Curl Activator Cream.
  • Braided my hair up
  • And left it in braids for three days.

Afterwards, I needed to travel and show up for some meetings so I had to release my braids to style them. My easiest option was to slick my hair back (not to tightly of course, my edges are very important to me) with a middle part.

I want to endeavour to deep condition my hair weekly so more updates soon. 🙂
