Backstage hair diaries #2. Single strand knot galore! Daily combing!
The Backstage Hair Diaries is an attempt to document my journey to find a hair regimen that suits me. I am looking for a regimen that pleases me with regards to aesthetics, hair thickness, hair length and ease. I don’t mind being experimental with my hair until I find something that works.
After my last wash day, I noticed that I had a number of single strand knots on the rear section of my hair. I trimmed them off. I think it had to be from my days of not moisturizing my hair last week. Backstage hair diaries #1: lazy with the hair.
This week, I have embarked on an experimental regimen which involves spraying a leave-in mist on my hair and detangling it nightly. After detangling, I braid the base and roll the ends to keep them smooth. I tie a satin scarf and go to bed.
The following morning, my hair is usually dry. I just smooth it out with my fingers, brush the top lightly and put it in a bun.
This morning, however, my hair was still damp when I was leaving the house and I think it is because I left earlier than I usually do.
I’m still undecided about this regimen but it has helped me manage my ‘texlaxed’ hair and keeps my hair looking relatively sleek. It is however not as soft as I like. It’s not crunchy but just not as soft as I want. Will continue it for the next month and see…..
Have a lovely evening!
