My hair's moisture level is getting so much better. I've been using Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion as my moisturizer for the past week or so, and it's doing a pretty good job keeping my hair moist and shiny. I have had a love/hate relationship with this product for a while. I bought it years ago when I was relaxed. Initially, I didn't like how it felt on my hair- heavy, oily and sticky. However, it seems to work on my son's curls. I'm not sure what made me pick it up and try it last week, but I thought, 'why not?' As soon as I put some on my dry hair, I immediately saw and felt a difference. My hair looked shiny. It felt moist and silky. The hair "clumped" like I hadn't seen my natural hair do. So I decided to use it on a dry twist out. The next day my twists were moist, but not too greasy. When I pulled the twists apart, my hair stayed clumped for the most part, and did not separate and frizz like they usually do.
I tried again on wet hair and had pretty good results. I'm also getting better at second day hair. Last night I put my hair in about 10 very loose ponytails. This morning, I just had to moisturize, fluff and go!
I also gave myself a trim. My ends really needed it. I don't know if it's scab hair, or just old damaged ends, but it's definitely not helping my curls. I just dusted my ends to get rid of the wiry hairs. I probably could have trimmed more, but I barely trust myself with scissors! I did it on dry hair, so hopefully I'll see a difference after my next wash.
