I realize as I sit down to write this post that I really miss writing about hair! I haven’t tried too many new products lately to review but I’m going to have to start, so I can give you ladies some new hair product giveaways too!
Well postpartum shedding is rearing its ugly head super strong. I touch my hair and tons of it falls out, if I even think about touching my hair, tons falls out… It’s awful. Look at my edges!!!
And that texture change thing has happened again. When I wash and moisturize my hair and let it air dry, the sides and back curl up pretty normally, the top/crown area, which usually is my looser curl when I’m natural… it looks like I have no new growth there at all. My last touch up was the Friday right before mothers day but it looks like there was a fresh relaxer only at my crown put on yesterday. It’s the strangest thing!
I already told you guys how a baby will ruin your hair….It’s all this lil one’s fault. I think I’ll forgive her though…
how could I stay mad at that lil nugget
I generally just wear it wavy. My “regimen” these days is:
- shampoo (every few days)
- condition (or cowash on non shampoo days)
- oil the ends
- finger style/shake into place
- air dry
Easy peasy 1-2-3.
But before BlogHer this year I went to the Dominican salon near me for a $15 wash and set. (can’t beat that!) They wrapped it into a doobie for me, but I didn’t get a pic of that.
I will be honest, despite my “regimen” above, I’ve been being pretty lax with my hair… I guess because I know I’ll be chopping it off, I don’t take as loving care of the ends as I did when I was letting it grow out. I sleep in a scarf about 50% of the time.
Everyone’s asking me what I’ll do with it next. I just don’t know… I do know that I’m going to grow and cut out the relaxer…but as for growing long again… I dunno when I’ll do that…
