The Best Thing Ever

So after I took out the tracks, I had to undo the cornrolls. When I took them out my hair felt like desert storm. It was dry, brittle, ashy, cracking, it sounded like sandpaper when I rubbed it. I had NO curl patter and my scalp was flaking (which NEVER HAPPENS) and my scalp was so tender. I don't know what I was thinking but I did something on impulse.

  1. I rubbed this oil mixture I made in my dry crusty hair. 
  2. After that I took some Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque and mixed it with Trader Joe's Nourish Spa conditioner. (I put glops and glops of that on my hair.)
  3. I then put a shower cap on my head and tied it up with TWO scarves. I left this on for 24hours. 
When I took the cap off of my head after those 24 hours and rinsed my hair it was GREAT! My hair was moisturized and my curl pattern snapped back! It felt beautiful. I could have cried. I then washed my hair twice with the Trader Joe's Moisturizing Shampoo. I put oil on my hair while I was washing it. I conditioned and put more oil in my head. My hair felt amazing. But since I am on my 1 year straight of protective styles, I am getting the back cornrolled and the front 2 strand twisted. I can wear Koofies with little twists out or pull it all back. I love options. 

Reason Natural Hair is Great: #63: It can be experimented on with ease.
