well im happy to say ive received my new products for my hair and im anxious to share them with you. the first was my aloe vera juice.
i received this first. i put it in a spray bottle and i use it daily. it makes my hair soft and im hoping it will help with any shedding. i am really hoping this will help my new growth once it starts coming in. right now i am only 4 weeks post so there isnt much new growth yet. but so far my hair is really soft with it. i just included it in my daily routine. im bunning my hair so its ok that it makes my hair wet.
next up, i just received the rosewater and glycerin. this i will use as a daily moisturizer with my alove vera juice. i plan to mix the two together in my spray bottle. according to the label it can also be used as a skin lotion and a harsh weather defense. i am hoping these two products together will work as a good moisturizer and help to keep my new growth soft and manageable.
ive also been using my jamaican black castor oil every other day on my hair. i put it on my scalp and massage it in. and then i seal my ends with it. the goal: retain length and thicken my ends.
so there has definately been growth. but its been very slow. this is why i switched up my regimen. and i also changed products. what i was using was ok for then, but not ok for now. here is what my regimen consist of:
mositurize with herbal essences long term relationship
seal with extra virgin coconut oil
spray my hair with the aloe vera juice and rosewater mix
every other day:
apply jamaican black castor oil to my scalp and massage
apply to my ends
thursdays: (wash day)
co-wash with tresemme conditioner (moisture rich or thermal recovery)
deep condition once a week
NO HEAT! (hair dryers, curlers, flat irons)
i plan to bun my hair 5-6 days a week and wear a braidout maybe once a week
here is a picture of my bun
