Progress and Products

Leilu: March 2009

I took a pic of my hair after relaxing March 2009. (I am using ORS Olive Oil relaxer)

Whats;s the plan, what have I been doing differently:
  • I discovered Phyto Specific and their Intense Moisture Range. I found no breakage after using their deep conditioning Vital Force Mask. I also use their Phyto Nectar as a pre shampoo conditioner.
  •  I no longer use heat on my hair.
  • Searched high and low on the Interweb and have finally found some Coconut Oil by Palmers on Amazon believe it or not. When you live out in the middle of nowhere like I do .... you look in unusual places.
  • I have tried a few other conditioners and so far the best I have seen are 
    • The PhytoSpecific Vital Force Mask - this is amazing no breakage after using this.
    • Joico K-Pak Reconstructor and Egg( just mix it in with the reconstructor and steam under a plastic cap for 1 hour. Joico is now my friend and I am going to try their split end mender as this smells great
  • I have been co-washing with Tesco Coconut conditioner.
  • I now have a personalised Pre-Shampoo Mix which I make up from the Tesco coconut conditioner, Coconut oil, BioOil and PhytoSpecific Intense Moisture Conditioner.
  • I only use shampoo once a month now after discovering washing with a conditioner and although don’t have all the facts yet, don’t really see the point of Shampoo!
  • The Phyto Specific relaxer I tried wasnt any better than ones I have used before.

So far the best products for my hair have been the Phyto Specific Range, but I am now trying Joico, and I found an Organix shampoo and a conditioner in Boots. I live in the country and a trip to Birmingham or London just isn’t possible.

Embrace Your Inner AfroDeity!
