My curls are back!! I finally got a chance to wash my hair.
Here were the products I used:
-Africa's Best Herbal Oil
-Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Shampoo
-Avalon Organics Nourishing Lavender Conditioner
-Butters and Bars Organic Shea Butter
I'm actually really happy to have my curls back. Don't get me wrong, I also liked my straight hair, but curls are where my heart is.
A lot of people say straight hair is easier and it truly depends on the perspective. I couldn't stand wrapping my hair every night. The second I got sleepy and comfortable my inner hair goddess was constantly reminding me to find my paddle brush and satin scarf.
At times I wasn't sure what I wanted to do...if I wanted to wear it up or down. I don't know haha. I wore a few different styles, but most of the time I let it brush my shoulders.
After washing I let my hair towel dry for about 30 minutes then divided into 12 sections for braiding. I applied the herbal oil first, detangled then applied a dime-sized amount of Shea butter focusing more on the ends. Once I was done braiding I tied a scarf on my edges and the rest is history...
If you're wondering...
No, I did not experience any heat damage and it didn't take long for them to revert. My curls came back to life as normal :)
