Ooookaaayyy ! So this next saturday will mark my 14th week of stretch ! So far…sooooo good ! lol. I don’t play with my hair as it is in cornrows, i just wear mi wiggies, ang i like it ! It is sooo resting ! I mean, i figured out how to hold 10 days without washing and it feels good ! ! !
Cause when the wash day comes, it is like FREEEEDOOM ! lol … Anyways i am dying to get to 16 weeks & get my relaxer, i can’t wait to be able to feel my scalp again ! lol
So as you will ask, lol, here is what i do
– prepare my DC the night before
-apply the mix in the morning
– shower cap or saran wrap, wig cap & bonnet
-i go to work ! lool (yes we can wear cute stylez at work, isn’t that great??!) because ppl, we all have a busy life ! ! but who wants to stay & wake up 1 day with one big dread instead of their hair?? lol, NOT ME ! !
-come back evening, and rinse out DC, co-wash or cleanse with hair one
– towel dry, then apply leave ins, bun & go under hood dryer for 10 mns
– scarf & bed
– Next day evening i will apply my JBCO on my roots, detangle very well, part the hair, moisturize, seal, and cornrow ! I am ready for another 10 days ! lol
Every night i will spritz my moisturizing mix on, moisturize the ends or baggy them if necessary (in the cornrows yes ma’am!)
Now i decided to go in this stretch without henna glosses : these are too much manipulation, so it means i haven’t been henna’ing in the last 4 weeks ! yuuuk ! Another reason why i can’t wait to get the relaxer & start henna’ing back !
Stretching is not an easy way, but LOW / NO MANIPULATIONS helps so well ! At least to me ! And also the mane n’ tail detangler ! ! i need to do a demo video on this stuff, it is just amazing to me ! It really is the knots solution !
Well i guess i see you next video !
great tips nunaa! i also absolutely love the MnT detangler! i know exactly what you mean about wanting to feel your scalp again, since i’ve gotten a relaxer i have barely been able to wear the same style for more than 5 days! so many protective styles, so little time! lol.
Nunaa, you go to work wit your DC on??!!!! LOL, LOL .I love it!
That is so funny, but absolutley brilliant!
I am not sure I could get away with that as I don’t have any wigs for one. For two I also imagine my ORS replensihing pak juice seeping down my neck in the meeting while I am totally unawares! LOL. Serioulsly though, how do you contain any seepage/ how do you wrap it?
I am DCing tomorrow and I am looking forward to it! One thing I am worried about is shampoo. ( I am new in my hair journey, just started December 2009 when I realised my hair had really grown and was just short of BSL after bunning most of the year; by accident! I had moved to Switzerland from UK and could not find many black hair dressers or products…so I had to just self rex and scrap back into a bun!) I was using the Dark n Lovely 3in1 moisture shampoo and just realised it has Suphtes!
I wonder if I can get away with using baking soda and water before I DC? What do y ou think? – as I will not be ale to get any shampoo by tomorrow, and I am DCing 1xweek religiously since Dec 09.
lol, that’s me ! check out my next video (it’s a haul, i had been deep conditioning like that all day 🙂
Well i heard baking soda is great, BUT i personally never used it… I use apple cider vinegar as rinses and they work well, when i don’t feel like using shampoo…
i will do a style/fashion video on how you can go to work & DC at the same time 🙂
Sometime next week, lol, hope you won’t get troubles at work 🙂
I use saran wrap most of the time, and i think my mixes are thick enough that’s why i don’t have it running all over , looool
how is Switzerland? i’d looove to visit it !
Ps : France is quite like that, hard to find good hair products
I really would like to see you with one big dread !!
