|I had this done when I went home for my 2-month vacay last year|
I did stop having it rebonded or straightened permanently because about a couple of years ago, I learned to love my natural wavy hair. I thought it was part of "personality" and that wavy hair is sexy if you just know how to style it.
But anyway, it was too late.. I did go on hot oil treatments once in a while but not religiously so that really didn't change anything. All I could do was dream about having healthy, shiny hair.
It was only about several months ago when I decided to just put an end to the torture I was putting my hair through and actually make an effort in trying to take care of it. I haven't dyed my hair since January this year so what I have on now is my natural hair color. I'm probably the last girl on Earth to find out about this but apparently, you're supposed to put like a serum/ cream, whatever on your hair before you expose it to heat such as- flat irons, curling irons, blow dryer. Just like how you have to put Sunblock on your face everyday. So if you haven't been doing this, well that makes the two of us and we should really start making it a habit if we want healthy hair :)
My Mom got these hair products for me (picture above and below) and I could swear on the amazing things that coconut oil can do to your hair. I've been using these (pic below) since last month and I could already feel that my hair has become smoother and I miraculously have no more split ends. Of course I had it trimmed before, but I usually would have split ends like after 3 weeks. That was how bad my hair was/ how cruel I was to my hair. :( If you do a research on coconut oil and how it works for your hair, what it basically does is it makes it smoother, conditions your scalp and of course it restores the moisture to dry and damaged hair.
|I leave this on my hair overnight, every night.. You guys should try it. Its amazing :)|
|I use this before I blow dry/ curl my hair.|
|Feel free to compare pics of my hair then and now. You'll notice that its really more "shinier" now.|
I'm actually contemplating on whether I should grow my hair back or I should keep it short for a while.. What do you guys think?? I'd really like to hear what you have to say. :)
And if you have any hair care regimens to share, just leave a comment! :)
