Back to the original content of this blog, HAIR TALK. Lately I have been so chill with my hair that it actually just look like a pile of strands sitting on my head. I really haven't done anything to my hair in about a week other than wash it a few times. So today, I decided to give it a treatment and a proper trim. I had a hard time deciding on which treatment I wanted to give this mane.

Tonight, I decided to give my my hair back its shine and the look of fullness so I went with the classic old oil rinse. Prior to the oil rinse, my hair looked a hot mess. So dry that it could break off easily. I mean it also could have been because I have been so tired of doing my hair lately that I honestly have been neglecting it, which is never a good thing.

So what I did was mix a tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) and Safflower Oil. I then separated my hair into four sections and then applied the oil through the scalp to the ends as if I was shingling my hair. I then put on a plastic cap and let sit for about 20 minutes, then rinse it out. Next I continued to use shampoo and conditioner as normal.

When I got out of the shower, my hair was so soft and shiny that it felt new and light. These shots are taken without any product on my hair.


Lastly, I shingled my hair, strand by strand (or close to that). I applied Pink Oil Moisturizer and let it dry to about 75% then put in six huge bantu knots. Tomorrow I will unravel after it is completely dry and wear big waves. 

Here are the results of the Oil Pink Moisturizer after the oil rinse. It does have a lot of shine.

Even though this is not a length check, notice how much it has grown since my big chop in September. hehe I'm thrilled to be back at APL when it is straight.
