If you read my 'I'm Ready...' post you'll know that I'm taking a stab at transitioning to natural. To keep you in the know, as well as a way of tracking progress, I thought it would be nice to do monthly check-ins. So as the title says, I'm now 4 months post (well as of last week). It's been a while since I've taken a picture of my hair on this blog so this is the perfect opportunity.
I'm in major need of a trim as you can see! I've been dusting my ends now and then at home but I haven't had a proper trim since April. 'So bad, I know. I think I'll probably do it myself to save some money and to avoid the tuts and frustration of my hairdresser, who I know will try and convince me to relax my hair lol.
Anyway, this month has been stress free really. Styling hasn't been difficult at all. I've been wearing a bun everyday and I try not to touch my hair again until it's time to moisturise and seal in the evening. I've had a few 'pops' from combing my hair too much so I'm trying my hardest to stay. away. from. the. comb. which is going well so far.
Regimen- wise, nothing has changed. I can still wash my hair normally, but in the coming months I may have to switch to washing in sections. I'm still shampoo- washing and deep conditioning once a week and co-washing as normal. The only slight change is that I no longer deep condition after co-washing. I don't think it's made any real difference and its saving me so much time. You can check out my hair care routine here.
Products- wise I'm using exactly the same products but I've incorporated the Mane 'n Tail Detangler into my wash- day routine as it's getting slightly harder than before to detangle my hair. This product has been a godsend for me! I just spray it onto my hair after drying it with a t-shirt and before I apply my leave-in conditioner. I wasn't sure it would work at first but it really does. It leaves my hair feeling fluffy and light. It has a nice, fresh scent and so I find myself liberally spraying it on my hair (which they encourage in the instructions lol).
I'm yet to try the detangler on dry hair, but when I do, I'll be sure to give my review.
I think that's all I have to report for this month :) Take care!
