I am at a crossroads with my hair and I have not decided on my next step. I am currently 24 weeks post texlax and I was supposed to texlax this week. However, I am having a serious Libra (indecisive) moment. Last night I was really about to pull out my shears and cut all of my texlaxed hair off. Luckily, I spoke to another hair diva and she gave me her input. Okay, she talked me off the ledge.
I have three choices on what to do and only one sounds appealing at the moment. First, I can go ahead and texlax, but I am really not in the mood to go through the process. Plus, my hair has been behaving lately. I haven’t had any issues with detangling lately, even after a braidout.
Next, I can big chop. I forgot to mention that my “friend” is totally against the idea. He almost had a cow when I said something about it, but at the end of the day, that is really my decision to be made based on how I feel. IJS. The other issue with cutting is the post-cut regret. When I big chop, I big chop to tapered sides and an inch or two on top.
Lastly, I can always color my hair. This is the most appealing to me at the moment. I love my red hair and my hair isn’t as bright as I normally have my color. Plus, I need to cover these little gray things straight chilling in my head. I am telling you my gray hairs are super friendly, and they wave and speak to people. Did I mention they like to sneak from under my wigs? I can’t have that happening.
Anywho, let’s get to this week’s wash day. I went with a co-wash because I washed my hair twice last week. I just washed on Friday and I did not feel the need for a full wash day yesterday.
Pre-Poo- I skipped it this week.
Co-wash – Using V05 Tea Therapy Nourishing Conditioner with chamomile tea. I detangled after I co-washed and my hair slide through the comb with no issues.
Condition – Applied Suave Almond and Shea Butter conditioner while in the shower. No deep conditioning yesterday
Styling – I think I am going with wash – n –go for the week. Just for last night, I pulled my hair up in a bun and secured it with a hair stick. I didn’t use an elastic band.
That is about it for my wash day. I really need to get my mind right and figure out my next step.
