Next up in my The Basics Series, is shampooing. Not a long video, but pretty thorough in how I wash my hair. And a good method for anyone with medium to chin length hair such as myselft.
So, why wash in sections? There are two main reasons:
1. It keeps tangles to a minium and makes it easier to put it in twists later.
2. Allows me to really get my scalp clean. And clean scalp is the key to healthy hair.
All in all, since my hair has gotten longer, i bave really had to make sure that I keep my scalp clean, especially in these winter months. I’ve also changed up the frequency to every two weeks, with a water and moisturizer and seal on my off shampoo week. This has given me
1. Less breakage
2. Some length retention
3. Allows me to really stretch without heat.
The latter has really helped with acheivibg nice and lasting twistouts.
So I hope you find these videos helpful and don’t forget to leave feedback. The next video will be up this week and that’s detangling, and twisting.
Stay tuned and thanks for watching.
Now live on my channel, Winter Favorites. Let me know if you would like to see a roundup of 2013 favorites. I can’t even believe we are saying that.
Coming up this week, continuing the series with wash day on Sunday. And a special haul. Stay tuned.
Here’s my newest video in my basics series. This week it’s cleansing, conditioning and styling. First up, the pre poo.
When Mt hair was shorter. This was a step I didn’t do because I felt it wasn’t necessary. Now that my hair is longer, I find that it helps me in three ways.
1. Helps me retain more moisture as I have very porous hair. And because I shampoo, it can often feel stripped after shampooing, even with milder and low sulfate shampoos
2. Detangling is easier before shampooing than after. I also don’t waste water in the shower. I also find I use less conditioner after shampooing.
3. I’ve noticed less breakage.
You don’t have tondonit the same way, but it definitely does wonders. The serum used is available at Target.
As the temperatures drop, we think of protecting our tresses, but we need to protect our necks and hands as well.
I’ve always crocheted. Made a few single scarves, wash clothes. This however is my first attempt at a ‘real’ scarf.
I’ve followed ‘But Sug,’ for a while now, and this is on her other channel, ‘Gaudy is Good.’ She has a lot of great tips, ideas and projects. So I picked the easiest one to start on, a scarf. And it’s something I can do while I deep condition, or catch up on my favorite shows.
Here’s the start
I can’t wait to see how it turns out.
If you would like to follow along, here’s the link to the video.
As for the title, if you’ve spent any time back east (New York in particular) then you already know the relevance. If not, you may know the cold by it’s other names, Hawk being the other one.
Either way, stay warm. And stay tuned, more videos up next week, including my continuing series, The Basics.
New video schedule starts next Sunday. Not to worry, I still have my series for natural hair as well as my sweater weather tag. In the meanwhile, enjoy my November IPSY review.
Thanks for watching.
