Curbed the Breakage w/ Moisture

I curbed the breakage I was experiencing earlier this week! YES! What my hair really needed was moisture. I had subjected my hair to direct heat, (I did use a heat protectant) yet I had not taken the time to make sure my hair was adequately moisturized before I flat ironed. Lack of moisture caused some breakage that I’m none to happy about 🙁 And even more disappointed because I knew better, but lesson learned, so I just have to move on.

What really helped during the week to stop the breakage was moisturizing and sealing my hair nightly. I moisturized with Qhemet Biologics Burdock Root Butter Cream and sealed with Hairveda’s Vatika Frosting [coconut oil infused with herbs – I this stuff!]. My hair feel much softer and breakage decreased each day. I washed my hair yesterday and focused again on restoring moisture to my hair.

I pre-pooed with Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Daily Treatment for 30 minutes. Washed with Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo. Applied Roux Porosity Control, as usual. After I rinsed PC out, I did do a light protein treatment with Paul Mitchell Super Strong Treatment just to reinforce my hair and prep my hair for upcoming relaxer touch up [yes, the idea of transitioning has been put on hold]. I deep conditioned with Paul Mitchell Super-Charged Moisturizer for 30 minutes, then rinsed.

I haven’t roller-set my hair in weeks but I missed the bouce and smooth hair so I grabbed my rollers and domed dryer went back to my trusty sets. I’ll be setting my hair regularly again – shirking off all laziness! at least for another couple of weeks

You can tell here that my ends have thinned out due to the breakage 🙁 ;'( – so saddening! I also dusted my ends a couple days ago to clean them up
IDK! .... eek! Look at my acne scars!!!!!!!!

  1. Cassia obovata does NOT dye hair any color unless you have grey hair. Then it will change the color to a pale blond. Go to Mehandi.com and Butters-n-Bars.com and read up on and download the free videos and info on henna. Mehandi.com has GREAT recipes to use if it's color you're seeking. I have done a short stint with indigo powder to see if it was as great as all the hype,and found out that it most def is! I thank The Father that He gave us options to use which won't harm our health. You don't have to sacrifice using toxic chemicals to experiment with a different hair color.

  2. I agree with Fefe~your rollersets always look so bouncy and good. I really need to try rollersetting again and real soon. Thanks for the inspiration!

    @Finehairsistas: Thanks! Do it, do it, do it, do it haha =)

    @TheNightNurse: I used cassia (neutral henna) which doesn't dye the hair as it doesn't have a color release – I wanted to keep my natural hair color unaltered. Regular indeed permanently dyes the hair, and I wanted no part in it haha. Thanks for the tip! I will def. look into it, I hate my acne scars!

  4. I see they Henna didn't change your colour too much, I found out that same supplier has a store in Torontp, so I a definitely going to give Henna a try =) and about your scars…mine were worse, get some african black soap and some shea butter it works!

  5. I love how bouncy your rollersets are. You make me want to stop being so lazy & rollerset my hair, lol
