Midweek Hair Update


This week has been an interesting week for me.

Midweek Wash day

I washed my hair on a Wednesday - today (co wash). It was super simple.

[1] I applied my moisturising DC Tuesday evening – Maroochi Miracle – Macadamia Butter Intensive conditioning treatment and slept with it.

[2] In the morning I rinsed it out.

[3] I co washed with Herbal Essence Bee Strong Conditioner.

[4] T-shirt dried and sprayed Aussie hair Miracle Insurance Leave in Conditioner.

[5] Detangled and air dried in a PS

New Protective Style

I have found my new go to PS that does not pull on my edges and keeps all my ends tucked away, see pictures below

 

 

Dry hair

At the start of the week, my hair felt really dry and straw like, even after M&S. My mid-week co wash was very welcomed. The culprit for this I believe is

[1] Use of sulphate shampoos weekly– I will be putting the sulphate shampoos away. I had not realised how gentle my non sulphate shampoo was Elasta QP crème and conditioning shampoo

[2] Also my hair does not like alternative sulphate ingredient as can be found in ‘no sulphate’ L’Oreal Shampoo.

Action plan – more co washing and keep shampoo down to once a month and repurchase Elasta QP crème and conditioning shampoo, for my monthly shampoo washes.

Monthly Goals – weekly check ups

Great news I have achieve all I had set out to achieve last week and this week is shaping up really well.

1.       Regular blogging – tick

2.       Moisture and seal regularly – tick

3.       Exercise once a week – tick, tick

4.       Check up on goals – tick!

Am happy with myself, I started jogging last Saturday and then did Pilates on Tuesday and jogged Tuesday evening.

 My next exercise is scheduled for Thursday and it will be a job!

Plus, my water intake has also increased in these 2 weeks!

My edges

When I was not looking it appears that my edges have grown back! My edges are back to their glory days, I am living my glory days!!

Dandruff

I am happy to say after my Saturday wash day and my co wash today, I have not had any itchy or flaky experiences I have been having for the last 2 weeks! Yay me!
Hope everyone’s week has been going great!

Happy Hair Journeys Ladies! :o)

    1. My hair never used to be fussy about shampoos, but more recently it's not having the shampoos that used to be alright! Will have to figure a median! But for now yay no itches!!
