So, this past Friday–right after work–I went Whole Foods to see what I could see. Boy was it nice! I ended up picking up the following:
- Avalon Organics Clarifying Conditioner Lemon enriched with Shea butter & Babassu Oil
- Avalon Organics Shampoo Lemon
- Kinky Curly Curling Custard
- Apple Cider Vinegar
Then, once I couldn’t find any natural oils I decided to head over to Meijer and pick up some:
- Doo Gro Mega Thick oil
I decided to do a co-wash with the Avalon Organics Conditioner and follow up with an ACV rinse which I put a shower cap over for about 15 minutes before washing out. My hair needed some moisture BADLY!!! So, I used the Doo Gro Mega Thick oil for a nice (and relaxing) hot oil treatment. Once I rinsed my hair out I combed it out with a wide-tooth comb very gently and started with my bantu-knot out. I used the Kinky Curly Custard on each section that I knotted then wrapped my head with a bonnet and let it dry out.
See the results:
I really think this added so much moisture to my hair. It lost a lot of its dryness. The previous hairstyles didn’t come out as nice and shiny because my hair was so dry. Another thing I noticed with this method is that I didn’t have any dandruff. A lot of times after I wash my hair with shampoo I can still see dandruff caked up in some places. No matter how hard I scrub. Then when I blow dry my hair it just drys up as well and then it all over everywhere. But, this time, without even using shampoo my hair feels clean and I don’t see any dandruff and it smells so good!
Today I washed it again and did the bantu knot-out (cause it’s sooo easy) and I bought some Shea Butter Mega moisturizer to use as an oil sheen for my hair once I take it all out. Yep, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can! I will make it up this hill! I can’t wait until I get to the top! 🙂
