Happenings & hair!

7 May

So much has happened since I last posted!!!

1. I received my Certification in Volunteer Management! I’ve already received my B.A. and M.A. so, I’m excited to add something more to my level of knowledge! They had a wonderful graduation feast and I had lots of fun!

2. I was a chaperone for my job’s Mega Party! We had lots of fun and I decided not to workout that morning! Boy was that a good call, being the fact I walked nonstop with 4 cute 2nd graders!

3. I celebrated Cinco De Mayo with some delicious Mexican food from Santo Coyote! Love that place!

4. UPDATE-For the first time ever, I pre-shampooed my hair, and let me tell you, I will ALWAYS do this from now on. Pre-shampooing or Pre-poo as some call it, is a treatment that you do to your hair before you shampoo. Hairfinity, reveals in their Faster Hair Growth Secrets, that it can help infuse your hair with moisture! Since I have all of the Essentious products (minus the daily moisturizer), I decided to give it a try. I decided to Pre-Shampoo my hair with Organic coconut oil. I applied it to my hair and left it on with a plastic cap about 45 minutes (Typically you should only do 30 min, but I lost track of time).

Afterwards, I rinsed my hair a bit, then proceeded to shampoo my hair. Following washing my hair, I gave myself a protein treatment, and sat under the dryer with a cap on my hair for 20 minutes. Afterwards, I followed with a moisture treatment. You all may be wondering why I did so much, but you have to remember I constantly do Zumba about 4 times a week and I spend this Friday in the sun, with a hat on my head and it was 90 degrees outside. When I got home, my hair felt dead and lifeless. It was very dry and felt kind of brittle. Therefore both protein and moisture were lacking in my hair!

I moved forward with my moisturizing treatment for 15 minutes, and then rinsed my hair out. I then got under the dryer for a lil bit after wrapping it, to start drying my hair. My hair is very thick and I sometimes don’t like the look of it, after getting from up under the dryer, so I put a heat protectant on my hair, and decided to blow dry it for 10 minutes. Typically not something I would do in trying to get my hair healthy, but hey, we all have to do what we have to do that works best for us! I decided to run my flat-iron over a few of my ends just to give it a bump.

Let me tell you.

I was pleasantly pleased with my results! Because it was late, I didn’t think to take a picture just then, but I did the next day!

The previous picture shows my hair WITHOUT any heat being put on it the next day NOR any product. Now you guys may so, of course you didn’t put anything on your hair you just washed it the day before! But let’s be honest and real, when you have dry hair, you typically ALWAYS have to put something on your hair, always do something to your hair, but what it comes down to is the healthy regimen you’ve adapted for your hair. Here is one up close:

That’s the natural shine from using products that are suited for my hair, and making sure to take care of my hair! Usually I could only get a look like this using lots of heavy products or going to the salon. If you invest in the right products you can get healthy looking hair yourself! I’m still taking Hairfinity (just started my 4th bottle) and looking forward to even more growth! I’m having fun on this hair journey!!!

Just wanted to share with you all an update, and inspire you to stop paying all these ridiculous prices to go to the salon and take healthy hair into your own hands rather it’s relaxed or not!

Until Next Time, Much Love,

Mrs. SPJ 🙂

P.S.-Do you have any hair tips?
