Curly Hair Update
Hey chicas! So, here's my curly hair update for December. Not sure if I'm going to get around to doing a video update this month, but I did want to let you guys know what's been going on with my hair.
For those of you who saw my Birthday Hair, Makeup and Outfit post, you know that I straightened my hair the first week in December. After rocking the straight look for a week, I washed and deep conditioned my hair using Aphogee's 2 Minute Reconstructor. I felt that my curls were limp from the heat and I therefore needed protein to re-strengthen them.
I've been getting quite a few messages lately on heat damage and may do a video on that soon, as it is a very real issue for those of us that use heat. I still have heat damage--a part of which I feel is inevitable especially if you have fine hair and use heat often, but at least the damage I'm suffering from today is nowhere near as bad as it was in the past. Let's put it this way, the heat damage doesn't jack up my curly hairstyles, so I'm good!
Anyway, because I did a protein treatment the last few times I washed my hair, I decided to do a moisturizing deep conditioning treatment today. I started out by doing my regular detangling and EVOO pre-poo treatment last night:
