Week in Hair | Goodbye January... hello February!

I'm filming my weave vid tomorrow! Whoop whoop! I was supposed to get my hair layered last week before filming but my schedule has been ridiculous! Where have all the hours in the day gone? Either way I've grown to love the hair regardless. 

In other news I went swimming on Saturday... I wore a supermarket carrier bag, 2 headscarves and my swimming cap and guess what...

My hair was still D-R-E-N-C-H-E-D! 

I'm just glad my wash day was simple and quick- I didn't feel any manipulation at all.

Weave wash day Regime
- I separated my leave out hair and weave and commenced to pre-poo 
using Philip Kingsley Elasticizer Extreme because my Gingernut Brulee pre-poo had finished.

- I then rinsed out the pre-poo and went on to co-wash and 
deep condition using two new products I was sent to review
1] Goldwell Kerasilk Ultra Rich Care Treatment 
2] Kerastase Nutritive Nutri-Thermique Masque

I was also sent some samples from both brands such as the
 Kerastase Paris Resistance Fibre Architecte which has one seriously enticing 
product description... Can't wait to try it!

[I didn't do my usual DC with heat because I simply couldn't wait to finish, put my feet up, watch a movie and relax!!!]

- I followed up with a Leave-in which doubles up as a heat protectant, 
and added a few squirts of Pantene Serum before commencing with blow-drying and straightening my hair.

Had to cop me this Aztec skirt after seeing it on the Gina [NaturalBelle]! Cheers love ^_^
 How were your weekends? I'd love to hear :D

Avec amour...

  1. So pretty..x

  2. what type of weave is that and how many inches?

    1. Hey Kiki - Its 12, 14 and 18 inches all together an i'm going to have a video on the type of hair tomorrow :)

  3. I'm convinced there is no way to protect your hair when swimming. That is too funny.
    I have a different issue with keeping my hair dry. I'm starting to do bikram yoga again and was reminded that it makes me sweat so much I might have well been in a swimming pool. I'm going to have to do this on the weekends only because I am too busy/lazy to be washing my hair after each class.

    P.S. You're gorgeous & your hair looks great.

    1. Haha i'm convinced too! Im going to try and up my carrier bags though!!! See if if it makes it any better !!! Yeah yoga, the gym, anything that works a sweat is a task on the hair *sigh*

      If not for chlorine i'm sure i'd not want to wash either!

      Thank you :) xxx

  4. Hair looks good. was you deep conditioning just your own hair or the weave also?
    Saturday I went to the west end to try out a new place i heard about called 'wahaca' have you been there? Its Mexican food. I recommend it now I've been.

    I spent my Sunday after church washing my hair, it was good. I like wash days :-)

    1. Thank you Maureen! Yes i did- i eased up with the conditioner on the weave though because I know they are not cheap so i'm holding on to them!!!

      I'm so glad you replied... no i've never heard of it... but that's now on my to-do list, I love Mexican food!!!! Maybe i'll go the next time i'm around :)

      Weekend wash days! I guess that makes two! xxx

  5. Aww don't you look gorgeous!

    Looking forward to finding out more about this hair.

  7. Very pretty!! My weekend was spent taking care of my sick son. I did get my wash day in and I'm currently debating if I will do a flexi rod set tonight or wait til tomorrow.
