The cold weather (and my numb fingers) this morning reminded me that I needed to do my Winter Challenge update. I haven't been updating as much as I hoped to, but oh well here I am, trying to make up for it.
Well, I gave up on journaling everything I do to my hair. I seriously don't have enough time or energy for that. So, I will stick to looking at my blog posts and seeing what I did to my hair, and what might need to change.
I have managed to resist the use of direct heat, and I am hoping to keep it that way for most of my transition. This will hopefully help with my length retention and general hair health. I have managed to keep up with my DCs, and my hair is almost always in a protective style or low manipulation style.
Last week I cut out the scalp massages because my scalp felt irritated by the use of the oil. So I just cut it out to see f it makes a difference. It hasn't made much of a real difference, so I guess I will do a clarifying shampoo, focusing on my scalp mainly this weekend and see if that helps.
I used up my other cheat again on alcohol. Peer pressure is real, let me tell you. I am left without any cheats and I needed a cheat for my birthday. Sigh, I think I will have to delete the no booze rule. I will end up breaking it a lot.
My next length check will be at the end of the month to see if I have made BSB (6'' on my length check shirt).
Have a great Wednesday :)
