I took one twist out today and I was extremely happy about how moist my hair is! I'm thinking that I will have to create a whole new hair regimen. Maybe my hair is getting back to normal from being so dry for the past year. I think consistent swimming last year and the henna treatments really dried my hair out, so I'm hoping that my hair is on the road to recovery.
So how did I get this moist hair? It's so simple. In the past 8 weeks, I've only washed my scalp twice. Every morning I spray my scalp and roots with a mixture of water, jojoba oil, castor oil and Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner. I never measure, but it's about 3 parts water, 1 part conditioner and .5 parts oil. My scalp hasn't itched at all. Even my edges are doing well, and I haven't done much but brush them down a little. I haven't been sleeping with a satin scarf because it's too hot, and it's uncomfortable with all of these twists. I do sleep on a satin pillowcase, though.
I'm hoping that when I do go back to wearing my hair out, my hair will respond just as well to the spray!
