(1) Pre-pooed with grapeseed and safflower oil for 2 hours
(7) Parting my hair in 1-2 inch sections, I applied Darcy’s Botanicals Daily Leave-In Conditioner, then Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum, and detangled my hair from tip to root.
(8) Let my hair air dryThis weekend was the first wash in two weeks that I actually used a comb to thoroughly detangle my hair. For the past two weeks, I skipped out on using a comb to detangle because I didn’t feel like I needed to (wich is saying a lot at 9 and 10 weeks post). For the last two weeks, it was fairly easy to detangle the larger tangles with just my fingers, skipping my new growth. Since this wash is my last before I relax my hair next week, I had to make sure I worked out all the tangles, especially in my new growth, in preparation for my touch up.
It took me over an hour to patiently work through my entire head but it was worth it–I had a few stubborn tangles nested in my new growth. Below is the ball of hair I lost from detangling two weeks worth of untouched new growth, and at 11 weeks post, I’m not surprised at all. I did have to remind myself thought that longer strands equals a larger hair ball. I love my Hercules Sagemann 5580 comb for detangling. It’s easy to hold and the teeth of the comb glide through my hair. I actually love that the teeth on this comb are longer than the HS 1975 comb.
My hair dried very big and fluffy but it’s completely tangle free and my strands are smooth so I’m happy. For the week leading up to my touch up I’ll be continuing with my usual routine: moisturizing and sealing daily and bunning. Next hair update will be after I relax my hair on August 7th, whoo!
