Your hair as with your body adapts to it everyday environment, my hair is a city girl like myself and it is not use to the salty air. Therefore after spending nine days by the sea my hair was showing the effects. I did pack a hair care kit but in the end the sweat salty air won out so I spent most of my vacation either with a ponytail or two plaits. For an entire week I did not comb my hair hence a tangled mess. I did however, moisture the best I can before bed each night.
Here is how I got my hair back in balance;
Prepoo- Detangled with a mix of coconut, grapeseed, avocado and tea tree oil, before applying Cantu Shea Butter leave-in conditioner repair cream under a plastic cap and head tie for 45 minutes.
Shampoo- After allowing my hair to cool, I rinse the prepoo mix out with warm water, then shampooed with Optimum Oil Therapy Ultimate recovery Shampoo. I usually lather once but to ensure I get all the dirt and sand out I lathered twice and rinsed with warm water.
Deep Condition- Once the shampoo was thoroughly rinsed out I wrapped my hair with a t-shirt to get the excess water out. I then apply Shea Moisture JBCO Strengthen, Grow & Restore treatment Masque and sat under my conditioning cap for an hour. Once my hair was cool rinsed with warm water. To get an extra layer of moisture I applied Loreal Balm and let it sit for five minutes before rinsing with warm water followed by cool water to close the cuticle.
Leave- in conditioner and Moisturizer- After rinsing out the conditioners I wrapped my head in a t-shirt for 10 minutes. Applied Creme of Nature Strength and Shine leave-in conditioner, Ettenio Moisture Reign and OGX Anti-breakage Coconut Milk Serum before setting with 18 perm rods.
In the morning I fluffed the roots and left the curls at the end, I got plenty of compliments , so I may add this style to my limited style diary. At the end of the day even though we were having a heat wave my hair felt and looked moisturized.
