So I have been on my HHJ for almost a week now (Sunday marks a week). I can already see a difference in my hair. I'm pleased for the most part, but my hair is still missing the shine. I noticed the Cantu Shea Butter leave my hair flaky if not rubbed in properly. While I absolutely love the smell I'm not sure it is moisturizing my hair the way it should. I think this is preventing my hair from shining. I'm thinking of changing my moisturizer to Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship leave-in conditioner. I may give it a few more weeks to make my final decision.
I've been M&S everyday in the morning and night with the exception of yesterday. Yesterday I did it one time. I left my scarf on my head most of the day. I was thinking about getting a relaxer today, but after a week of daily manageable new growth I decided to wait til around Christmas or right before the start of my last semester of school.
Here is a copy of my hair yesterday. This is my braid out from Sunday I blowed dried a few strands of my hair yesterday. I said I wouldn't use heat but that may be impossible. I may have to blow dry occasionally.
