Not very much to update this month. I purchased one gallon of coconut oil. I plan to co-wash less now that the weather is cold and I'm hoping for a softer fro. I have added coconut oil to my spritz and apply it daily as a moisturizer. So far the results are positive. I still enjoy the Kinky Curly product line but have found that as my hair grows it is literally taking all day to dry. I am also military so I must consider that I have to wear a wool beret or hat while outdoors in my uniform which wrecks havoc on my hair especially when its wet or damp. I exercise 5+ days per week so I may rinse my scalp a few times during the week.
My new daily regime consists of: 1. Spritz with water/coconut oil mix or Spiral Spritz (Kinky Curly) 2. Add Kinky Curly Curling Custard only to areas I wish to slick down or add definition to
Weekly regime: 1. Shampoo with Come Clean (Kinky Curly) or one of Ida's Homemade Soaps 2. Condition with Knot Today (Kinky Curly) 3. Apply Knot Today as leave-in 4. Apply KCCC
RESULTS: Fluffier fro, softer hair, nice coconut fragrance, and an easier daily routine without dripping damp hair at work. My hair is not as sleek and a little more frizzy now that I am not rinsing or co-washing daily but still very attractive. I am learning to love a more natural look and embrace my hair with what it does naturally....fluff and frizz : )
One thing that I will try to improve is educating my stylist. I enjoy going to the Aveda Salon to get a scalp massage, shampoo, condition, and color rinse every two months; but I am not happy with the way my stylist combs through my dry fro. I will bring my own combs and or detangle my hair prior to going to the salon.
