These were life :)
So, last night I tried something out of the ordinary, and I’m going to incorporate it more into my regimen. Instead of washing my hair, I decided I just needed to rise my scalp a little and give my hair a boost of moisture. I’m starting not to feel the need to layer on 9000 layers of product to get my hair moisturized.when water can solve all that. The day before, I had detangled my hair with sunflower oil and slept with the chunky twists still intact. I just took them down and let the water run over them while smoothing the curls in a downward motion and massaging my scalp a little bit to start getting rid of the impurities on my scalp.
I know someone, somewhere is going to find this super weird, but my hair seems to like it. I think that instead of cowashing once or twice a month, I’ll just do this. Not only was I able to get rid of some of the eczema flakes on my scalp, but I was able to cleanse some of the product that had been building up too. No, not as much as if I had used shampoo, but enough that my hair felt lighter, almost like a shampoo.
I’m at a place where I’m starting to fully understand that what works for my hair doesn’t work for another and vice versa. Until this water cleansing thing gives me a reason to stop, it’s going to be permanent.
