|It's a wig!|
protective styling with
this full cap wig by Freetress
Right now, I only have two wigs and plan to purchase a couple more. I'll also be styling my hair in buns, braids and flat twists when I'm not wearing a wig. I'm doing all of this to keep myself from manipulating my hair. I suspect that the constant styling
I'm used to has led to my hair length plateau. For me, more styling
tends to lead to more trimming.
|The moisturizer that saved the day!|
I thought that the products and the fact that my hair was braided meant that my hair would stay moisturized under my wig. Boy was I wrong! A couple of days later I took my hair down and my hair was so dry. I quickly applied some moisturizer and then sealed with the grapeseed oil again. I braided it back up and hoped for the best. The next day, I could tell that my hair was feeling softer but I still wanted to give it more moisture. I ended up cleansing my hair again and conditioning. I decided to do a wash and go style using a heavy conditioner as my leave-in, moisturizer, oil and then gel. My hair had so much life! The moisturizer I think was the key. My leave-in conditioner was not enough on its own.
|My current combination of products|
to keep my hair moisturized while protective styling
I can tell a huge difference in how my hair feels. If this combination of products works for me, I will continue to do this throughout my protective style challenge.
