July-August Update: Gwenda (#8)

Hair
Hey Curlfriends! Well, I am so ashamed to say that this is the only update I got around to doing! I have been going through a bunch of life transitions lately, so I’ll let that be my excuse! I ended up trading out my complicated and stupid long regimen for one of simplicity. The reason I did away with my original regimen was based upon the fact that it took way too much time! I would end up not doing anything to my hair just because I dreaded doing all that stuff to my hair!

I adopted a KISS plan! I wash and deep condition my hair once a week. After I wash and condition I apply a leave in, apply castor oil to my scalp and ends, and then apply a cream moisturizer. After my hair dries, I do a roll, tuck and pin protective style. I wash my hair with the SheaMoisture Moisture Retention shampoo. I DC with the SheaMoisture Deep Treatment Masque. I use SheaMoisture’s Moisture Retention conditioner or the Giovanni Leave-In as my leave-in and then I use the Curl Enhancing Smoothie from SheaMoisture as my cream moisturizer. This new regimen keeps all the work in one day and plus my hair is super moisturized and healthy now! My hair has never felt this good and this strong!

I had box braids twice, for about 3 weeks each season. Other than that I have been rolling, tucking, and pinning! Wash and go’s and puffs have also been plentiful.
The amount of growth I have seen makes me so … Giddy! Look at these two pictures!
I actually had 3 inches of growth in six months! I didn’t get to arm pit length, but shoulder length made me happy! The front section went from not touching my nose at all, to being nostril length. The sides went from being collar bone length, to being chin length. Finally, the back went from being collar bone length, to being full on shoulder length! I had around 3 inches of growth on all sides and, the thing that gets me is, I wasn’t even putting my all into my hair care! I was seriously slacking! Just imagine what I can do if I actually put forth effort! I stopped taking Biotin, but I plan on starting back on those. I

When it came to following a fitness regimen, that went all the way out the window. But, I also plan on actually starting and sticking to a weight loser challenge! Time to get fit!
