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, third times 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 methods 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.
