If you can remember, I decided to start washing my hair weekly (see previous post). I've continued washing my hair weekly and I have been seeing a difference to washing every two weeks. I continue to wash with the sisterlock starter shampoo and I don't use any other products throughout the week, I have even put down the lovely smelling Oyin's juices and berries. My curls from lock loops definitely hold better and my hair actually bounces when I walk, feeling very airy. Since using the VO5 I have not seen any of the white bulbs in my hair, which is a good thing. Although I did not like the feeling of my hair afterwards I will keep the VO5 in my bathroom for if/when I see the white bulbs again.
For this weeks wash I decided to do a braid out. I bundled my hair without braiding and once I finished washing I braided the bundled section up and put a rubber band on the end. I slept with my hair like that and took it out this morning, and might I say what a disaster!!!!!!! Although I had lots and lots of crinkles and waves I hated my hair looking like that, it was BAD! This is probably because I'm used to seeing my hair curled or just freestyled it was just the worse. So I just put my head over the tub poured some water on my hair and let it air dry. Oh wait! I did actually use some Oyin brown burnt sugar pomade because I wanted to retain some length in the front and back. I used about a quarter size rubbed it in my hand and fingertips and used my fingertips to smooth the front and back. The smell is GREAT!!!
