Ladies, I have a confession to make. I NEVER do a hard protein treatment on my hair.
I have only tried the Aphogee 2 Step Protein once since I have been on my hair journey and it was not a pleasant experience. Instead of making my hair stronger and more resilient, I felt that this product made my hair worst. My hair broke like crazy. I thought I was going to have a melt down.
I know many hair gurus swear by doing a hard protein treatment every 6 six weeks but this just does not work for me. Instead I prefer to perform weekly light protein treatments using Fantasia's IC Reconstructor and Organics Hair Mayonnaise. This combination works really well for me and I experience very little breakage.
What are your thoughts on hard protein treatments?
Today I was just not in the heavy foundation mood and since I was just running out to do some errands I went relatively bare faced. I am having a good face week so I am taking full advantage of it. In addition, Barbados was just a little too damn hot for make up today.
I am wearing NYX concealer in Nutmeg, some random black eyeliner, Maybelline Great Lash Mascara and NYX lipstick in Shiva (my favourite shade btw).
I didn't even fill in my brows. I just couldn't be bothered to day.....oh well. Speaking of brows, I have started to put a little JBCO on my brows every night to help them fill in a little more. I think they are a little sparse, especially at the ends.
Yesterday I self relaxed at 7 weeks post. I wanted to stretch my relaxer a little longer but I have a function this coming weekend.
This relaxer session was pretty uneventful but it took a little longer than usual because I had so much new growth. I have just added the famed JBCO to my regimen and my hair has been growing like wild weeds.
As usual, I relaxed my hair with Bantu Mild Strength Relaxer with Shea Butter.
I love the results that I get from this relaxer because my hair still retains some body and is never limp and lifeless.
I am pretty happy with my progress so far although I think I need a trim.
