Daily Braid Care

That's a lot of growth in almost 3 weeks!! Hope I can manage to keep this in a little more!

Co-wash: I haven’t shampooed my hair in 3 weeks because I decided to shampoo only once a month until I get a sulphate free shampoo. I co-wash 2-3 times a week with my Silkience Silky Smooth Conditioner. I have my VO5 Moisture Milks Conditioner now so I will alternate between the two conditioners weekly for the next week left to keep my braids in (though I’ve been itching to take it out for a week!!). I deep condition with ORS Mayonnaise mixed with coconut oil once a week. I GHE (Green House Effect) on days I do not co-wash. I just hope my hair likes this new “arrangement” and doesn’t get a moisture overload! I love; love, looooooooove co-washing and hope my hair doesn’t hate it!!

Daily Spritz:  I spray my braids every morning with a generous amount of my water, ORS moisturiser, glycerine and castor oil mixture contained in my spray bottle. I make just enough to last 2-3 days at a time. I usually add Aloe Vera Juice when I have some at hand and keep this mix in my fridge to prevent it from going bad. I spray enough to dampen my braids a little.

Moisturise and Seal: I then spray a generous amount of Hawaiian Silky 14-in-1 Miracle worker in my palms and rub it all over my braids. I can’t seem to get it to spray from the bottle!!  I rub this on my roots and all over my braids. I then massage my scalp for at least 5 minutes. It keeps my new growth very soft!

Growth Aid: I massage my whole scalp once a week with T444Z Hair Food, and whenever I moisturise and seal. I apply it to my edges everyday because I need my edges to catch up with the rest of my hair. It broke off pretty bad after a bad braid take-out at a salon.....NEVER AGAIN! I also rub my nails together whenever I remember as I read this aids in hair growth.......!! My Biotin expires in December so though I have 2 full cans, I tossed them out (sob sob sob!). Thanks to my friend, Atsufui who bought me 5 cans of 100 capsules when she came for holidays from the UK in April cos I wanted at least a year's supply!! Unfortunately it was ordered online so we couldn't get to check the expiry date!! I got to use it for only 6 months so I guess the time was too short to say anything bad about it. I intend to buy Jamaican Black Castor Oil this weekend since it is now available in Ghana until I can get Biotin again.

I plan to take out my braids on the 8th of December. My birthday and wedding anniversary is a few days later and I wish I didn’t have to do anything to my hair....but I sure can’t go without doing something to make it real nice for the occasion!! I thought of straightening my new growth instead of installing a weave or getting braids but I can’t bear to use heat on my hair since I’m on a No Heat challenge!! DILEMMA...........but this is a special occasion so one heat pass in a whole year shouldn’t hurt!!
