I have been wearing my hair in twists for just over three weeks now and I think it is time to remove them before those knots and ugly tangles really set in. I wash my hair once a week even when I have my hair twisted and three washes is sure recipe for matted hair and detangling is normally an uphill task to say the least. Let me confess, I am not yet decided on how I will protect my hair for winter. I may do the twists again but right now, I am quite tempted to cornrow my hair and just wrap my hair with a scarf on cold days. Not sure though if it suits my frame but I want to try that.
Hey there. I washed my hair yesterday morning and decided not to twist it soon afterwards because I wanted to show you how my hair looks like when washed. To me this is my actual wash and go style and I did not put much product in it except my leave in conditioner and some oils to seal in the moisture and allowed it to air dry, that’s all. I really wanted to do this so that you can appreciate the kind of hair I have, my texture and yes, the shrinkage. It is as you can see proper type 4 hair. I would say type 4b/c for those who care to use the hair typing chart.
On Saturday, 16th of March, I did a yoghurt and honey deep condition to my hair. Why I did it? Well, I saw it, though not for the first time, recently on one of the blogs I am subscribed to and thought to give it a try. Knowing the benefits of yoghurt and honey, I thought, chances of the mixture causing drastic damage to my scalp or hair were small, and that’s why I love natural products. Most of them do not have adverse side effects and my rule of thumb is, if I can eat it, I can apply it on my body or hair. Considering I can eat yoghurt and honey, separately though, and the multitudes of benefits yoghurt and honey have on hair as individuals made me even more eager to try this natural conditioner. Actually, after mixing the yoghurt and honey for my hair, I asked my two sons to taste, which they hesitated at first especially the older one but once they put it on their tongue, they kept coming back for more and I had to evacuate my mixture to the bathroom from the danger of ultimate consumption and I would not have any for my hair.
