With my first marathon completed (February 19th 2012) and almost a full year of my healthy hair care journey acheived (May 2012)...my goals now are to stay vegan, stay running, and continue forward. I can already see ultramarathons and trail marathons in my future. Plus lots more interesting vegan and hair experiments. So I hope you continue to stay with me and join in. You all help to keep me honest.
I did my protein treatment today! I'm proud of myself! Although the hair process hasn't been completed yet. (I have in the deep conditioner as I write this).
Aphogee STINKS!!! For those that have tried it already, you know. But for me it was an unpleasant surprise. I also hate hooded dryers. It's uncomfortable, hot, and it burns my eyes and my forehead.
I am, however, doing the protein treatment once a month. Right now I don't notice anything special. I probably need to use it a few more times.
Anyway, I'm just happy I got out of my laziness to do it!
I also tried a different process washing my hair to save water. Instead of detangling in the shower I did it before I washed. I put my hair in sections, about six, then sprayed them with plain water. Once it was saturated with water I added my Suave conditoner and started removing shed hairs. I then twisted each section back up.
After that I got into the shower and shampooed my hair in sections. It worked out pretty well. The next step was:
The protein treatment
Sitting under the hooded dryer until it was hard
Rinsing it out
Putting in the intense moisture conditioner
Once I wash out my deep conditioner I'll do the rest of my routine. The laziness is setting in so I'll probably do super humongous twists and leave them in until Wednesday.
My husband and I are going away from Thursday-Friday because our 3-year anniversary is on Sunday! He doesn't know about it yet because it's a surprise. But I will include a post next week with pictures on where we went! But I think I want my hair out for the trip.
Since I didn't wash my hair last Sunday my hair hasn't been in twists this entire week. I alternated between buns and Updo #1 as well as Lazy Day Style #4. It wasn't that bad. Not as much "work" as I expected. Maybe I'll alternate weeks.
