Whew, Lord. I’m back to blogging.
The last month has been a doozy. Although I ‘m not going to share the details here (or maybe I will) of what has happened; let’s just say that I really missed blogging.
On to hair…
In an effort to not be a slave to my hair, I’ve changed up my regimen so that I can now wash and style my hair during the week so as not to clog up an entire Friday night or Saturday afternoon. What have I done differently, you ask?
I’ve been blow drying my hair.
We should never say never when it comes to things in life; even hair. I’m pretty sure that I was on a “no heat” type challenge not too long ago but I had to be completely honest with myself; for the winter months, it’s just not that practical. Further, I don’t want to have to wear twists in my hair for a full day (usually Friday night through Saturday) to allow my hair to completely air dry. Also, the more stretched my hair is, the fewer knots I get. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. LOL
Anyway, last Thursday evening (8:00PM!), I detangled, washed and conditioned my hair. I then parted off in random sections, applied some whipped shea butter and grapeseed oil (for heat protection) and blow dried each section on the low setting until the hair was just about dry. I applied a leave in conditioner and broke the larger section down into smaller ones and twisted, adding a dab of Garnier Fructis Body Boost Gel for a little hold.
Friday, I was able to wear my hair “out” to work and I am very pleased with the results. I’m rolling with this process for now. I have noticed that my hair is growing quite nicely as well; although, I’m in desperate need of a haircut so that my hair can have shape. Not sure if the length is a result of the blow drying (probably is) but I’m going to have to look for a styling alternative because my “bangs” are getting in the way.
Take a look!
