Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow... Well this color that is!
So this is my hair today...
I did a different kind of braid out and curl this time as my hair has been drying out from the heat and humidity and I needed to do something!
I read on Sisters With Beauty site yesterday that sometimes the humidity can suck the moisture right out of your hair so instead of my usual Infusium 23 Leave-In, with Shea Moisture's Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and coconut oil/Soul Purpose's Hair Balm, I used:
Giovanni's Direct Leave-In
Shea Moisture's Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie
Shea Moisture's Organic Coconut and Hibiscus Hold and Shine Moisture Mist
I figured that these ingredients would assist my hair in holding onto moisture and I applied in the order listed. I proceeded to braid up my hair in 14 braids and curl the ends with the gray perm rods last night, usually I shoot for 8-9 braids, but I wanted more curls this go round!
One thing about this process that was different already was that my hair didn't dry overnight! It was still rather damp this morning when I started to take out the rollers so I had to sit under the dryer for about 30 minutes before church! Made me later than usual! :(
Now what's the title about!? Well, next GOC post my hair will be a different color! I have decided to color so with my GOC Update Post, there will be a change to my overall look.
You only live once and I have NEVER dyed my hair before! With the coming season the leaves will be changing their colors so I decided to change mine as well! LOL! I will be doing a lot more protective styling in the fall and winter so I figured coloring my hair wouldn't be as damaging as it would have been if I did it in the summer when I wear it out so much more...
So that's that for today lovies! I will post an after pic tomorrow so that I can show you how this method of braid out worked out for me with the new products and number of braids.
