It’s easy to neglect taking care of our hair tools and depending on how often you use them, product buildup could lead to the accumulation of dirt and germs that have harmful effects to your hair. The frequency with which you use your hair tools would determine how often you need to wash and clean them. Personally, I choose a day of the week to do that.

I’ve gotten a lot of questions on how I care for my hair beneath braids/twists and weaves, although I have no strict regimen for that, I’ll try to be as detailed as possible in this post. Before I got the Dark and Lovely Braids n Weaves hair care line (which was an answer to a silent prayer), my regimen consisted mostly of just spraying with water and oiling, I tried getting dry shampoos over here because sometimes I just don’t want to get your braids/weaves wet from shampooing/washing with water, the closest I got to a dry shampoo was Batiste from Jumia and it didn’t work well with my hair. I’ve used the Dark and Lovely range and it does exactly what I want it to do.
HAPPY NEW MONTH YOU GUYSS
CONGRATULATIONS ON OUR NEW PRESIDENT NIGERIANS
It’s my birthday month too, I’ll be a year older on the 11th, which is another Election Day coincidentally. Last month made this blog a year old! I think a giveaway is in order and I’ll let you guys know as soon as possible.
Now on to the matter of the day, if you’re one of the ladies that believe once you get a sew-in weave, you’re free from all wash day duities, stop reading this and apologize to your hair and weaves (seriously). Sometimes you pass by some females and the stench from the weaves just make you want to stop breathing (this used to be me 3 years back, welp). On Monday, I finished from school early and decided to wash my weave, I had been postponing this for about 2 days. It’s a short weave so you might want to make out a day to wash longer weaves or use the dry shampoo method; I’ll put up a post on that later.
Currently, the weather over here has been less than favorable and we have been receiving more than our normal share of the cold, dry, harmattan winds. Our hair has to be kept well hydrated just as our skin this period. Protective styling is the first thing that should come to mind, because no matter how dedicated to caring for your natural hair you are, leaving it out during this period and going through bi-daily moisturizing and sealing would take its toll on you. If hair is not properly taken care of, it would become dry and prone to breakage.

This is really just an impromptu post. Before this evening, my hair was tucked beneath a weave but then I started having an awful headache and I have a test to study for, I had this overpowering itch to pour water on my head but I was considering other things like; I just had this weave installed less than two weeks ago, I have no idea what I’ll be doing to my hair next if I decide to take it out. In the end, I gave in and took it out. Now the super lazy part of me kept pushing me to wash the hair without loosening the cornrows the weave was attached to and I did 🙈
