Quick Check In! - Protein Treatment, Air Drying & Protective Styling - A SUCCESS! :-)

Hey There Guys!!!

This is just a quick check in post as I have a little time,
I just HAD to fill you all in on the results of my last Wash Day.
So as I told you guys in my last post "Wash Day" I Did a protein treatment with my trusty Nexxus Polymedic Emergency Reconstructor followed by a Moisturizing Deep Conditioning Session with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner.
After Air-drying to 80% dry I put my hair in 4 plaits rolled the ends up on a flexirod, put on a scarf and called it a night!

I decided I didn't want to manipulate my hair at all so I kept them in for work on Tuesday morning:

I was going out yesterday evening with my other half for a lil' impromptu drinks lime so I did a Braid-Out:

OMG!!! The hair felt like butter!!!!

I was impressed, and a bit in shock.
Boy this journey keeps teaching me new things about my hair and what it likes at different intervals in my life.

Likely Reasons for the softness:
  1. My hair was probably craving protein - listen to me, I LUV Nexxus Polymedic Emergency Reconstructor, I don't know why I fell off my routine of using this once to twice per month. Trust me I'm definitely back on track! I HAVE to purchase some this week (online shopping of course).
  2.  My hair is also loves the Profectiv Mega-Growth Leave-in Conditioner - This stuff is amazing, again I need to make an order this week if I cant find it at "Bolo's" here in BVI
  3. I tried a serum "OGX Nourishing Coconut Milk Anti-Breakage Serum" instead of my usual Grapeseed Oil to seal the moisture of the Leave-in Conditioner - My hair seems to really like this! As a result my fine strands didn't stick together and look stringy when I did the braid out.
  4. Once again: My hair is also trying to tell me it likes Protective/Low Manipulation Styling!!! Its now up to me to try to keep low manipulation styles without being boring.
I am really happy today, so I decided to share my "Good Hair Day" with you guys
Hope you all are having a great week
FOOTBALL Resumes Friday! Can't wait!

  1. I've used Nexxus Emergencee my entire hhj and I probably will NEVER ditch it. The strength + softness that it gives my hair is unparallelled!
