Hey Queens! 👋
I am one to always wear my hair in mini twists. Here in Jamaica, we call them rope twists. Yesterday, I installed another head of rope twists and I noticed that my hair was as soft as ever than before. I was in awe.
I washed my hair on Thursday -the whole works of shampoo, deep condition, condition, apply a leave-in and then applied my black castor oil infused with argan oil mixed with coconut oil. This is the process I always used when washing my hair but I tweaked it a little. I wasn’t home by the way when I washed my hair. I was staying at my cousin’s house. Now, at his house he has a water heater.
I would like to think it’s the warm water that caused this soft hair. Before applying my leave-in conditioner and oils. I pulled out all my twists that I usually wash my hair in and ran my hair under all that warm water. My scalp and hair felt great from this warm water drenching process. I then applied my Cantu-Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioning Repair Cream immediately then my castor oil infused with argan oil mixed with coconut oil to my hair.
I also want to think it’s the castor oil infused with argan oil because I’ve never used used this product on my hair before.
Also I tried not to manipulate my hair after washing it. I just applied a little more castor oil and twisted up my hair and let it air-dry. I didn’t even use my cotton t-shirt for drying my hair.
Who knows? I strongly believe it was all three. The warm water opened my cuticles allowing my hair to be fully saturated with moisture from the leave-in conditioner and oils. Leave-in conditioner and oils are great way to get moisture back into your hair. In addition to that, knowing I have low-porosity hair. My cuticles need to be open in order to get moisture into my hair and the warm water assisted the leave-in conditioner and oils in doing so.
How do you achieve soft hair? Explain below in the comment section.
Until next time,
Peace & Love. 💋
