I started off by pre-pooing with a mix of hempseed, grapeseed, and safflower oil (ceramide cocktail lol!) for about an hour. Next, I clarified with Redken Hair Cleansing Cream Shampoo. I hadn’t clarified my hair for a month so I figured I was due because moisturizing and sealing every night, regular scalp massages with my sulphur mix, and hard water in my home all contribute to product and mineral build up on my hair. After I clarified, I followed it up with a sulfate free, moisturizing shampoo: Paul Mitchell (PM) Awapuhi Wild Ginger Moisturizing Lather Shampp (every time I write out the name of this shampoo, I can’t help but think its way too long!). Then, I applied Roux Porosity Control for 30 seconds. I had originally planned to go straight to deep conditioning at this point but decided to apply PM Super Skinny Daily Treatment to really smooth my new growth and make it more manageable. After, I deep conditioned for hour under my heat cap with KeraPRO Restorative Treatment. After I applied my leave in conditioner and serum, Darcy’s Botanicals Leave-In Conditioner and PM Super Skinny Serum, I roller set my hair. I flat ironed my roots once my hair was dry with Hana Titanium 1.5″ flat iron I received from Misikko.com.
This was the best set I’ve done all year as part of EbonyCPrincess’ Six Month Roller Set Challenge! I was so happy with how light and bouncy my hair came out. I had worn my hair in a bun the entire week, that was none too cute, I just bunned it and moved on, so having my hair done actually made feel better.
The way my ends look when my hair is air dried versus after a roller set is extremely deceiving. I couldn’t stand my ends all week to the point where I thought about cutting my hair after this wash. I have to remind myself with the three textures, my ends are going to look off and uneven. So note to self, hide the scissors when my hair isn’t straight. I was also suppose to buy some mesh rollers to try out the week but what had happened was but forgot to order in time. To preserve the body and curls, I put my hair up into two loose pincurls before bed.
