So the weather is getting colder and my hair is getting drier. I usually cowash/condition my hair once a week, but I think I will have to start doing my hair twice a week. My hair needs the extra moisture. I usually deep condition weekly without heat, but I think I am going to start adding heat to my regimen. Tonight I cowashed and deep conditioned with a mixture of my favorite conditioners (Aveda Dry Remedy, Neutrogena Triple Moisture Deep Recover Hair Mask, Aubrey Organics Conditioner Honeysuckle Rose, and some left over Aloe conditioner made by E'tae). I sat under the dryer for about 15 or 20 min and then styled as usual.
Since I have run out of my Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme, I picked up a shea butter pomade by Kemi and I really like it. I'll let you know if I can replace the Baby Buttercreme with this. That would really help my wallet too! I haven't put another rinse in my hair because the dark brown is holding up pretty well. Granted my hair isn't as dark as it was a couple weeks ago, but it is still a dark reddish-brown.
I am debating trying the E'tae products again now that I am natural... I am not sure yet though. My hair is in need of a trim and I think I am going to get it straightened and trimmed for my company holiday party at the beginning of December. I'll keep you posted!
