I’m happy to say that I’ve been sticking with my regimen! Today was my sort of mid-week co-wash. I used my Shea Moisture Organic Yucca and Baobab Volumizing Conditioner. This was the first Shea Moisture conditioner I tried and fell in love with. I had some left, so I figured I’d finish out some of it. My hair felt fantastic.
I didn’t do a twist out this time. I think I’m getting a bit tired of the messy look. My hair actually dries overnight when I do a twist out! I decided to slick it back with some EVOO and Eco Styler Gel. I put it in two close ponytails in the back so that I can make one ponytail in the morning. I didn’t make one ponytail when it was wet for two reasons. The first being that the middle would never dry. The second reason is that when I put it in one ponytail when it’s wet, the middle dries very thick, knotted. It also tends to feel super dry.
I do feel like my hair is getting thinner. I never brought it up before because I have no way to judge whether that’s true or not. My hair generally feels thicker when it air dries, but I have a feeling that if I blow dry my hair I’d see how much thinner it has gotten and I’d freak out. Let’s keep in mind that I do have a lot of short pieces due to breakage. *sigh*
I’ve come to terms with the fact that there’s nothing I can do about all of the breakage now. The most I could do is nurture my hair back to health and that’s exactly what I’m trying to do.
Here’s the messy look…
