I haven’t done to much of anything with my hair lately. I’ve been sort of lazy but in actuality a bantu knot-out is a bantu knot-out. A twist-out is a twist-out. It’s all the same and nothing really changes.
My main issue has been my issue since 2011 and that’s dry brittle hair. I have worked on achieving and maintaining moist hair for years and I am still working on it.
I’ve tried lots of products designed to keep hair moist and lustrous but nothing really worked. However, my homemade mix of raw shea butter with pure castor oil incorporated with a leave-in or regular conditioner has helped.
My curls can stay out maybe two days but after that I have to put my hair in a protective style so it can regroup and moisten up.
I am also trying to grow my hair. I take biotin and other supplements and vitamins but at the moment nothing seems to be working right now.
I’m keeping it real. Maybe I’ll get an afro weave one day.
