Hair Chat

      This summer it has been buns buns and more buns! Since my relaxer, I am currently going on 6 weeks posts, I haven't had much to blog about. I've mentioned before that I am on call 7 days a week so it is hard to set aside time to do anything creative with my hair. My regimen this summer is moisturizing and sealing daily, and cowashing every 3-4 days. After day 4 my hair is usually pretty done after all the sweating I during my daily workouts. I have been drinking at least 64oz of water everyday as well. Also, *I think it's time to throw in the towel for Biotin* I am going to stop using it for a month to see if my skin clears up a bit. I do not want to sacrifice clear skin for a faster growing rate, this is not a race anyway lol. I will continue to take my prenatal vitamins and use castor oil occasionally but that is all I'm taking for hair purposes anyway.
       Over the break for the holiday I am thinking about using a heat pass (gulp) and allowing someone to straighten out my hair and style it. I figure since I am not doing any low manipulation styles or anything besides buns, then I could afford to style my hair. There is a shop near my house that claims to support "healthy hair", so I am going to have to check it out. Until next time.

4 week check in

Woah time has flown! So yeah I've skipped a few wash days this stretch but I'm not even gonna trip over it. I even have a few of them in my draft folder but they were pretty uneventful. This summer has been crazy, so much so that I find myself longing to be in a long term protective style. So far my hair has been so good to me, and I've been kinda half doing stuff. I even slept without a scarf one night smh. This is only the beginning but this first month has been great I've been doing a lot of braidout and buns about 95% of the time. I thought I would be doing a lot more styling this summer but it doesn't look like ill have the time. In the meantime I've been looking up styles to wear this fall. 

Today I cowashed my hair, something I do every 3-4 days religiously, because my hair thrives from frequent cowashes. It's about 50% dry in the pics but it's soo fluffy and soft I'm loving it! This stretch I will focus on getting these edges together as opposed I my growth rate. I am already feeling coils coming in 😁
