Hello everyone I have been MIA for a bit but to be honest it was not completely my fault. I have been battling breakage. Not a lot of breakage a few short strands here and there. What have I been doing about it? 

Well before tackling my hair with everything i know about breakage in the book, I decided to observe my hair see if I can pick up what could possibly be the cause of my problem. I touched it ever so gently and tried to forego manipulation as much as possible. What I noticed happening was as soon as i tried to comb (not from the roots of course, I comb from the ends first) I would hear at least one loud snap. I thought to myself time for a strand test. Sure enough without applying much pressure the strand snapped more quickly that a twig.

I jumped on the internet right away looking for a well compiled list of moisture based Deep Conditioners I found this blog and well this post in particular was very helpful I then made a list of which of the moisture based deep conditioners I thought I may be able to find at one of the beauty supply stores here. That list was not very long. In fact I had the wonderful option of Organics deep conditioner or Queen Helene Cholesterol. I did see the one from organics but the line was so long in that store I would probably be back five hours late from my lunch break. I settle for Queen Helene which contains mineral oil by the way.

The next day which was my wash day I shampooed as usual and then blotted my hair put some in a little bowl and proceeded to apply the conditioner withe my applicator brush used for relaxers. Deep conditioned until I lost track of time I mean I think it was an hour and a half but I cannot be quite sure. Then rinsed with warm water as the cholesterol is hard to rinse with just plain cold water. My hair has drastically improved. What I take from this whole experience is that my hair was slowly overloading with protein from deep conditioning with Organic Roots Stimulator Replenishing conditioner. I did another strand test and my hair strand now stretches and then reduces to its original length. I will now mix it up with my conditioners so i do not overload on protein or moisture.

I did see five short strands today I will now reevaluate the products I have recently added which granted is just one but I will stop using it for a bit and see what happens if anything happens at all.

Until Next Time

  1. Great way to tackle the problem chica

  2. Thanks hun but i'm beginning to think there is more to it than just a normal imbalance lol.

  3. We're on two sides of the coin here. I'm suffering from a moisture imbalance. I too have to do an evaluation of my regimen.

  4. I think I will start to co- wash for a while. I guess this is just another way for us to get to know our hair.


Talk to me. You know you want too. Thanks for stopping by. :)
