Almost one year ago, I stopped the use of silicone-laden hair products as part of my weekly regimen. Since then, not only has the condition of my hair improved but the issues I had with my itchy scalp have greatly diminished. Although my hair was in pretty good shape while using silicones, I noticed a problem with my scalp when I started using Aussie Moist 3-Minute Miracle.
I loved the deep treatment for my hair but it did a number on my scalp causing itchiness and build up. It had gotten to the point where I'd find myself washing my hair every 4 days which quickly became a pain. It was then that I decided that I decided I'd leave products with silicones alone for good--whether water soluble or not.
Even though I've nixed silicones from my weekly regimen, I have found that their use has been seriously beneficial as a heat protectant and have resigned to use them only when straightening my hair. Last time I straightened my hair, it lasted nearly 5 weeks frizz free and unaffected by humidity.
You've already seen the pics of my successful hair straightening experience, now here are pics of my hair going back to curly:
In order to keep my hair from tangling as it reverted back to curly, I seperated my hair into four sections and braided each one, securing them with a bobby pins at the end. (I never use rubber bands on my hair)
After dousing my hair with water in the shower, my curls began to revert.
|That's water droplets, not dirt by the way...I'm just sayin' LOL|
Complete curl reversion success
The curls as back and in full affect. My first twist out wash day.
More on my new regimen and the products I currently use coming soon.
