I started off by doing a hot oil treatment for this month’s 30 day challenge. My go-to oil for this month’s challenge is grapeseed oil but I’m 78% sure my bottle of grapeseed oil sprouted legs and ran off because I just could not find it. I ended up giving up the search and went with my jar of Hairveda’s Vatika Frosting.
I warmed up the oil in the microwave and applied it to my hair and scalp. I also added a little castor oil + peppermint oil to my edges as well. Oh, before applying the oil I misted my hair with my homemade detangler (I made a new batch and will post the deets this weekend). Damp hair from the detangler + coconut oil on top made it a BREEZE to finger comb and remove shed hairs before hopping in the shower.
 After doing a hot oil treatment for about an hour, I co-washed with Shea Moisture Co-Washing Cleanser.
 Next I deep conditioned with a new buy: Mielle Organics Babassu Oil and Mint Deep Conditioner under my Gold N’ Hot heating cap.
As the name suggests, it has a minty scent and made my scalp feel a bit tingly. It sunk into my hair pretty well and provided lots of slip. My hair didn’t feel as moisturized as I hoped it would when I rinsed out the conditioner but I’ll give this conditioner a couple more tries before I review.

 After deep conditioning, I squeezed out the excess water from my hair and applied Camille Rose Curl Love Moisture Milk and coconut oil on top. The plan was to flat twist my hair and put perm rods on the ends. I had done this last week – please forgive me, I forgot to post! but I will – and it was a faaaaiilllll because my hair did not dry completely so I’m determined to get it right. Too bad the migraine that started while applying the leave-ins ruined my plans.
I ended up just applying the leave-in and letting my hair do whatever it wanted to do. I loved how soft the CM Moisture Milk made my hair feel but I definitely didn’t know what to do with my thick fro; I’m still not comfy wearing it like that yet :/
The solution: a puff. I’m pretty sure wearing my hair in a puff is starting to be a security blanket because it’s so easy to do, but I’m determined to learn how to style my hair so I promise you’ll be seeing less puff posts.
