HOW TO CARE FOR 4CHAIR AFTER 3 MONTH PROTECTIVE STYLING

By Posted on 0 2 m read 267 views

The Universe delivered my Mushu and me from regression. For real for real! All my 3 months of protective styling could’ve gone down the drain with the rest of my 3 years worth of growth! Scarry?? You bet!

More of that gist in  #6monthsprotectivestyle: 3MONTHS UPDATE

And this is how I delivered Mushu out of these box braids after 3month of protective styling

 

HOW TO DETANGLE 4C HAIR AFTER LONG PROTECTIVE STYLING

My ends were nicely finessing, but my roots were like bruh. Because new growth pushes the root and braids leaving your hair exposed. Dust, and Dirt, conditioner, oil.., lol you name it, all of this has coagulated to leave a nice chunk on tangle between your new growth and where your braid started. Do not be alarmed.

TOOLS FOR THE JOB:

PATIENCE

NEEDLE WITH THREAD

SPRAY BOTTLE DETANGLER BOX

ESSENTIAL OIL MIX

TEAZER/DETANGLER BRUSH (can also finger detangle)

 

METHOD:

In the old days I wash boujee. Flash back to December Essentials: Natural Hair Things I am loving

Where I did the whole shabang after taking down my faux locs. But this time products used:

LAVENDER OIL

SHEA MOISTURE DETANGLER

TALIAH WAAJID SHEA COCO DETOX SHAMPOO

SHEA MOISTURE STRENGTHEN AND GROW TREATMENT MASK

APHOGEE TWO STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT

These days I still do the same things without the fancy coffee rinsing. And I probably also should have ACV rinsed, but eh, Lazy Natural problems neh. At least I used the detox shampoo

 

After my scalp massage, (READ 5 REASONS TO SCALP MASSAGE), I wet air and Depp-conditioned to loosen the knots. The next morning when my hair was softer and moisturized, I proceeded to take each fairy knot with the needle.

Check out this video showing how I detangle using a needle.

HOW TO DETANGLE 4C HAIR FROM EXTREME SHRINKAGE

 

I took about 3 detangling sessions to finally get all the shed hair out cos ain’t nobody gat time. If you can’t be patient enough to tangle each knot with each conscious breath please put it away and come back to it. My boo, there is a reason why headwraps exist other than to display beauty 😉 Just beware of your plastic cap slipping through you

I completed my wash and deep condition, and proceeded with a simple protein treatment. Mushu is back to normal.
