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
