It has been a while.. So sorry about that. Working overnight kind of put you in an interesting place. But by the grace of God, I am still here in His strength.
Okay let's talk hair!
In my initial post about these Crochet braids, I did say that I was going to keep them for 4 weeks only. I also stated that I was not going to wash them. However, I took a long look at those braids and realized that they still looked so good that I could waer them for two more weeks. If you follow me, then you know I have to get my scalp and hair cleansed at least once a month. So, yes.... I washed them. My scalp was very thankful to me afterwards.
let this sit in my hair for about 10 minutes. Because I did not want to do excessive rinsing of the crochet braids, for fear that they may come loose, I waited to cleanse my hair first before rinsing my hair.
I used the purification mask to clean my scalp. It was easy to get my fingers on my scalp as I have cornrows underneath the crochet braids.
Rinsing:I rinsed my hair thoroughly in the shower to ensure that all the mask is out of my hair.
Conditioning and moisturizing:
In a plastic bottle, I mix As I Am Leave in conditioner with Aloe Vera juice and Coconut oil. I pour the mixture into my cornrows, tilting my head backwards, so the moisturizer does not get on my face. I found out that pouring is more effective than spraying. In the past, spraying moisturizer in my natural hair (in extensions), left some of my strands dry. If you want your hair effectively moisturized in long-term protective styles, pour the moisturizer into your hair. It works!
This is what my Crochet braids look like after washing and conditioning my hair. I also trimmed them for a shorter look. I did not use any special commercial product for synthetic hair. My home-made moisturizer keeps my crochet braids soft and frizz-free.
I have a short video on the whole process. Please stay tuned for that.
Till next time, God bless you and thanks for visiting my blog!
