Protective Styling: Revisiting My

My Sunday wash day was a success.

I tried a new product, a moisturizing deep conditioner, and to my surprise my hair responded to it so well that I cannot wait to use it again. Seriously!! I know I’m not the only one who gets happy when they find a moisture DC that works well for them?!? It’s such a satisfying feeling. LOL. Anyways, my hair felt fuller, softer and smooth which is what everyone desires after wash day- No? I will definitely do a product review and go more in depth about this new found gem - Camille Rose Algae Renew Deep Conditioner! Yup, it's for relaxed hair too.

Okay, I’m loving how full my bun is right now!!  This bun is the result of my wash day experience. I did a light protein treatment on dry hair using Aphogee 2 min reconstructor mixed with Coconut oil. I left that on for 15 mins using my Hot Head Thermal Conditioning Cap.  I shampooed using Keracare Sulfate free Hydrating Shampoo (lather 2x) and then applied the Camille Rose Algae Renew Deep Conditioner on damp hair mixed with my 3 Penetrating Oils (Avocado, Coconut and Olive Oil) and went under my hooded dryer for 30 mins.

Detangling was noticebly easier than usual though I’m almost 11 weeks post relaxer (going to relax in October 2018). Usually, at this point, in my relaxer stretch my hair tends to be a little demanding in terms of keeping my new growth tame, detangled and soft. Though it was my first time trying this new deep conditioner, I immediately noticed a positive difference in my hair. Woot Woot!

In case you're wondering, this style is super easy to achieve. I call it the "Ends Tucked Under" bun.  I love rocking this style when I stretch my relaxer because I get more volume opposed to when I'm freshly relaxed. After I air dry, I moisturize and seal. I then secure my hair as if I'm doing a ponytail but not removing my hair out of the ponytail holder completely. So, essentially my ends are tucked under my ponytail holder :)
