2013 Hits & Misses

Now that 2013 has come to a close what better time to revist what was a hit or a miss for me. As I look over my blog I'm so grateful that I finally decided to blog on a regular basis in 2013 because I LOVE it and because it really helps me to hone in on what really did and didn't work for me.














Hits
  • The LCO Method- (Liquid Cream Oil) The LOC method was nice, but using the LCO method has really stepped up my hair drying experience!
  • Giovanni Direct Leave In- I really discovered how much I love this gem in 2013. It is a multipurpose product for me as I use it as apart of my leave in mix, my daily moisturizer, and in my homemade moisture mist. 
  • Protective Styling with Kanekalon hair-Towards the end of 2013 I began dabbling in various protective styles outside of my boring old bun and boy oh boy and I glad I did. Kanekalon hair has taken my protective styling adventures to the next level! The icing on the cake is that kanekalon hair is super cheap and reusable. 
  • Egg protein treatments- This is another gem that worked its way into my hair regimen. After a lot of research I decided to try an egg protein treatment because I haven't had a lot of luck with many of the  normal protein treatments. Either they didn't really work or left my hair feeling rough and dry, however the egg protein treatment left my hair feeling soft, thick, shiny, and strong. My breakage is so minimal until it almost doesn't count...almost :)
  • Drying my hair under a hooded dryer- It cuts down on my wash day time and leaves more time for me to dedicate to styling
  • Sealing my ends with JBCO-This has really helped to keep my ends in tip top shape.
Misses
  • Air Drying- I really tried to like air drying. I used tons of different products and methods and my hair just doesn't like it!
  • Long term stretches- I've been sticking to 8-10 week stretches because that's what has really been working for my hair. I'm not saying I won't ever revisit the idea of relaxer stretching, but for now it's a no go. 
  • Store bought protein treatments-I just didn't have the best of luck with them. Most don't do what they claim they will for my hair. Thankfully eggs have helped resolve that problem and now my hair is stronger than ever!

  3. I agree the LCO method is what really works for me as well.I'm starting to question my air drying method as well…I may start using the hooded hair dryer to dry my hair somewhat then let it air dry the rest of the way.
