Remember my issues that I was having with my hair.
Well, the solution has been found!
Whether she knows it or not, one of my family members reminded me of the number one moisturizer - water. Thanks Pam! The summer weather was wreaking havoc on my hair before I began incorporating more of it into my regimen, . Now, I’ve upped my application of it to daily.
• Water: One-fourth of the weight, of a strand of hair, is made up of water. Water makes your hair supple and soft therefore you should have enough water. Water keeps your hair silky and shiny as well. *from iloveindia.com
Well, on top of having a wonderful shower filter, I’ve upped my application of water to my hair. I believe that’s all I needed to do. So every day, I put my head under the showerhead if but for a few seconds. When I do this, I make sure that the water is cool/cooler to ensure that my hair cuticles lay down. Sometimes I wet my hair a little. Sometimes I go ahead and give it a good rinse. And sometimes I full out co-wash it. It all depends on how active I’ve been and how I’m wearing my hair.
I can definitely tell you that my tresses are lovin’ it. After it’s been wetted, I apply a conditioner and/or butter. For my buns, I’ve been topping my hair with the Hairveda Whipped Gelly. Forget hair gels, I’m so lovin’ this stuff! And of course, I end by sealing my hair with an oil or pomade. Btw, if I use a leave-in conditioner I top it with the gelly and seal with an oil. If I use a butter (Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream), I top that with a pomade like Qhemet's Amla Oil Nourishing pomade. And yes, if I’m wearing my hair in a bun or smoothed down, I cover it with a scarf for a few minutes to allow it to set.
I’ve also brought back Apple Cider Vinegar Herbal Tea rinse to my regimen. I posted more about it here and here. The ACV helps to seal your cuticles, normalize your hair’s ph and make it shiny. Gotta love it!
So glad my hair is back to normal.
Hope this helps anyone out there. My hair certainly appreciates it!
