*first time using the wordpress mobile app,so forgive any weird stuff.thanks*
So I decided to loosen my kinky twists(finally).It took me about 6hours,went to bed around 2am :(.My hair had matted at the roots&had started to loc sef,me and my weird dada hair..The plan was to loosen the hair in sections and detangle as I went along,but I got tired.So what I did was loosen everything,then pre-poo.
A pre-poo is a pre-shampoo oil treatment,you put oil in your hair overnight/as long as you want then wash it out.I used my oil mix(coconut,castor,olive&amla oils)liberally,put a nylon bag over my hair then my shower cap.I left it on overnight.
In the morning my hair was soft and a little dampish.The shed hair was out of this world though,there was so much of it in my hair.So I finger detangled to get most of the hair out.This was super easy,because my hair was really soft(not normal behaviour from my hair.lol).My hair had been in the kinky twist extensions for a month,so a co-wash was out of it.
I dampened my hair with water,and then poured a little vinegar on it.this loosened my curls up,making it easier to get the rest of the hair out.Then I shampooed and conditioned.
Since I was coming out of a long term protective style,I felt my hair needed tlc,so I deep conditioned with: honey,some conditioner,olive oil and ORS carrot oil.I put a shower cap on my hair again&left it on for 2hours.Since there wasn’t any protein in my mix,I did a tea rinse to wash the conditioner out.
*whew*basically took me two days to wash my hair.
Results: I lost very little hair,compared to taking a shortcut.Also,my hair was incredibly moisturized.
