Deep Conditioning Awesomeness

It’s been about 3 months now that I’ve been basking in the awesomeness of my current deep conditioning favorite. Creme of Nature’s Aragan Oil Intensive Conditioning Treatment has really been doing my hair right!

I have a lot of trouble retaining moisture and this product has really helped with that. I currently deep condition and baggy once a week. Although this is not a leave in conditioner I personally find that I get my best results when I leave the product in my hair. I will typically baggy with the product for at least 4 hours.

Some of the major benefits I’ve seen with this product and process are:

Significant moisture retention
Incredible shine
Light soft hair
Split end & single strand knot reduction

I’m loving this product so much that I’m thinking about bringing it into my regemin twice a week. I’d also say that trying out some of the other products from this line is also in my future.

So Twisted

I absolutely love the bun life. I have a different bun for every day of the week.  But this week, I decided to do small twists as my primary protective style.

These twists took me about 4 hours to do.  I twisted on co-washed and conditioned hair (Tresemme Flawless Curls and Cantu leave-in).  Typically when I do these twists I prefer to use a locking creme like Carol’s Daughter Loc Butter along with my Eco Styler gel.  It just so happens that I was out of both of these fabulous products but was still committed to getting the twists done before the week began. I ended up only using Cantu’s Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, a product I am heavily relying on during my growth challenge.  Consequently, because I didn’t use anything to really lock these twists in, I don’t expect them to last very long at all.  I’ll be really happy to make it to Friday.  Personally, I think that four hours of twisting for 4-5 days of not having to really do anything to my hair is a pretty great trade-off, but that’s just me!

I am moisturizing and sealing my ends at least every other day, if not every day with Bioinfusion Olive Oil Shine Serum and the Grow Strong Strengthening Treatment, Cantu’s Creamy Hair Lotion or Motions Hydrate My Curls Hair Pudding.

That’s about it!  Still protective styling and treating my hair for maximum growth! Off to drink two cups of water and take my vitamins. Let me know if you’d like to see a tutorial on these twists.  Be you beauties!
