hi, ladies! happy thursday! :-)

so, i washed my hair after swimming last night.  used sheamoisture antibreakage dc - good dc, but i have used it only 3 times and the jar is pretty much done. argh!  

anyway, i realize that my daily use of my new found oil, avocado oil, and almost daily moisture spritzes (they have protein - amino acids) caused problems for me! i noticed little broken hairs when i was detangling and that never happens.  then it dawned on me - i don't do well with coconut oil for the very same reason (unless it is rinsed out)...and here i am spritzing these new things PLUS using avocado oil which acts like coconut oil. ARGH!

my hair has enough protein so adding protein or things that act like protein can be an issue for me. as a result, i never do protein treatments and only use a light protein spray after every other wash.  this reggie works well for me.

needless to say, i have stopped using the avocado oil and will just use it on my face (it is an awesome moisturizer) and as a dc.  i am just doing moisturizing stuff now and will be back in medium size twists from sat and small twists after swimming next wed.

so glad i know my hair and spotted that something was awry that day! but still, sigh.

@Heavy, thanks for reminding me that avocado oil acts like coconut oil! My hair loves it in DCs, and I was considering adding it to my leave-in oil mix. I'd forgotten about this property, though, and I'm protein sensitive as well. Crisis averted, lol...glad you were able to nip the problem in the bud.

I need to cowash and DC, but I've been soo hair lazy these past couple weeks. Ouch I'm beginning to wonder whether it would be better to just throw in some box braids and call it a day, but I really want to do some experimentation first. I'm so over wigging it though. I think I may rock phony buns and puffs for a while instead.

I realized that I haven't updated in awhile but then again there is nothing really new to report hair wise
I haven't been going anywhere so I been keeping my hair in bantu knots under my scarf (I have to run to the store or something I just through my hat over it, lol)

Heavy,
 
Glad to hear there is another swimmer amongst us.
I place a plastic cap under my swimming cap and wash my hair immediately after.. is there anything that you can suggest to protect my hair from thechlorine?

^^ I guess it would help if I let you know what I wash with!
I currently use either shea moisture moisturizing shampoo or burts bees shampoo and follow with either the shea moisture deep conditioner or elucence moisturizing conditioner and then apply kimmay leave in...
 I have been washing with the cornrows in my hair as I rock a wig during the week as a protective style...do you think I should take down the cornrows to d/c...I just don't want the chlorine to ruin my hair.
 
thanks

hi, everyone. Not much has changed with my hair, just keeping it braided up. But, I have started to mix my curl activator spray and the Aphogee pro vitamin treatment in my spray bottle. My hair loves protein and was getting over moisturized too easily. I weave an afro kinky curl upart wig right now, so no heat is necessary. 


sorry about the huge pic
