Last week, I discussed the last bits of roughness from using henna the other week. There are a few methods to pre-poo hair and this week I used two: oil only and oil and conditioner mixed together. Why two pre-poos? Adding two pre-poos gave my hair what it needed to get back to normal.
I can normally reverse the dryness with one or two wash days but this time I needed a third. Yes, the third time a charm and my hair is back to feeling soft and luscious. I did not add as many oils to my henna mix this time and I believe that caused the extra dryness.
I am currently at 14 weeks post and the shampoo process is a little different now because of the massive amounts of curlies hanging out at my roots. My method of minimizing breakage and tangles is completing my entire wash-day process in plaits. Yes, just call me Celie if you like because that’s how I roll.
Let’s chat about my wash-day process.
