So far...So good





My computer has been broke for about a month now.....(should've gotten a MacBook Pro), but I'm back. I will be seven weeks post on tommorow and right now I have about a little over a half inch of new growth. Its really hot where I live so I've had to adapt my regimen because I sweat so bad (embarassing). I've been washing my hair twice a week with Elasta QP creme conditioning shampoo. I am in love with this stuff. It detangles like a dream and is very moisturizing. But best of all its sulfate-free!! I also deep conditioning twice a week after I wash. I let my hair airdry and throw some bantu-knots in and I'm good to go until the next wash. I try to keep it very simple. I personally think hair thrives off simplicity. I really haven't been combing my hair after I wash it because the products I'm using now are really working for my hair. Now I know some of you are like WHAT! I don't let two weeks go by without combing it because I have to get out the shed hairs. My deep conditioners (Kerapro and KeraMinerals) have really been doing most of the work for me. I'll rinse my hair with cool water and glide my fingers through my hair under the water and that helps alot too. I put my leave-in conditioner in my hair followed by an oil/serum, and then I gently smooth my hair with my fingers until its about 85% dry and then do the bantu-knots. Now I do have fine hair....so that, plus the products I'm using probably aid in easy detangling. I hope this continues up until week 12 in my stretch. If so, I might extend my stretch!!

How's your stretch going?
