Cowashes = Thickness!

I started nursing school a few weeks ago! *Yay!*

My schedule has been hectic and I'm just now adjusting to it. A hectic schedule means my hair priorities were definitely put on a hold. I've lost some length in the past few weeks :( But one thing I definitely hated was how thing my ends were becoming, it was pretty bad!

So for the last three weeks, I've light-proteining, shampooing and then deep conditioning with the normal products on Sunday. I airdry and braid, and then half wig my hair for the rest of the week. I was able to moisturize maybe twice the entire week and no co-washes at all! My hair was dry tangled and brittle by the next deep condition. And it was shedding everywhere.

I started moisturizing and sealing with castor oil but my hair was still thin. So, this week, I was able to co-wash on Wednesday night. I was amazed by how much cleaner my scalp looked, and how healthier and thicker my hair was ... with just one co-wash! My hair still shedded some but now until it dried and then it wasn't as much as before.

I flat ironed my hair today (two days after my co-wash) and my hair has still retained it's thickness.

You never know what you have until you live without it! True about many things, instead of co-washing. I used to believe co-washes weren't all that necessary for good hair growth but now I see it's definitely causing more benefit than harm (no harm, just the hassle of doing it!)

I'm still using my MN mix, but only once or twice a week and then I baggy!

Happy labor day weekend
