Wash Day Post/Hair Update

Hi lovies! So I know I kinda disappeared for a few weeks, but I have a really great excuse....MOVING! I forgot how much I hate moving. All of the time and energy it takes not to mention all of the accumulated stuff that seem to have. Yeah...needless to say it kind of took over my life for a few weeks, but now I'm back! Since I've been gone for a bit I thought I would do a wash day post and hair update rolled into one.

Here's What I did:
  • Briefly detangled (I went to the salon last week therefore detangling was a lot easier).
  • Shampooed with the Keracare Hydrating detangling shampoo
  • Deep conditioned with the Keracare Humecto conditioner for about 20 minutes.
  • Rinsed and towel dried my hair
  • Applied my leave ins using the LCO method (L-Chi Keratin Mist, C-Kimmaytube Leave In, O-Chi Silk Infusion).
  • Blow dried my hair using the cool setting
  • Moisturized and sealed using Giovanni Direct Leave In and Coconut Oil.
Style: At first I rocked a bang, but on a whim this weekend I decided to french braid (very messy braids because I'm not that great at braiding!)
my hair into 2 pig tails. I pinned them up and pin curled my bangs just to jazz up the style. I think I'm going to redo this style every 2 days and rock my hair this way for the rest of the week. It's starting to get a bit cooler outside so I want to protect my ends as much as possible.

Update: I'm currently 6 weeks post and have quite a bit of new growth, which I believe is due to these new Gummy vitamins especially formulated for women, which a lot more biotin *SCORE!*. My old multivitamin on had 10 mg of biotin versus the 300mg I'm getting on a daily basis now. My hair definitely seems to appreciate it :) Other than that I honestly haven't been doing too much to my hair. NO length check updates or anything. I think I'll do an official length check update around February. I'm thinking of possibly trying my first sew in this winter, but we shall see. I'd like to get a feel for how sew ins work since this is how I'm hoping to style my hair for my wedding. I think that's about it for now!

  1. Yay! We missed you! Love these goddess braids chica! Staying cute and keeping it simple never looked better!

    What's the name of the new vitamins that you're taking? Have you noticed any other improvements from taking them?

    Thanks for sharing your #washdayexperience!

    1. Thank you! The vitamins that I take are the Target Up & Up Women's Gummy Multivitamins. My skin seems a bit clearer, but I've also cleaned up my diet and started back exercising regularly so I'm not sure if the vitamins are the cause.

  2. Yeah, moving can be crazy. But I love the way your hair looks in those braids. What length are you at?


    1. Tell me about it! Thank you! I believe I'm somewhere around APL or a bit longer. I'm planning to do an official length check in February.

    1. Thank you! It feels great to be back!

  4. I've been trying out that KeraCare shampoo and I love it! Do you have the sulfate free version? Love the blog's new look too girlie!

    1. That is the only shampoo I use now outside of when I need to clarify! I only use the sulfate free version and it has done wonders for my hair and scalp! Thank you :-)
