I'm so upset right now!
Two days ago I decided to take my weave out and wear my real hair for about a month to let it breathe until it was time for me to get it done again.
The process was going smooth, I had about another inch of growth and was so excited!
Once I removed the weave, I proceeded to shampoo my hair with a clarifying shampoo. I always clarify my hair to rid it of any residue
and dirt after removing braids, or weave.
I didn't have my normal Clarifying Shampoo from Mizani, so I decided to use something different. BIG MISTAKE!
This time I had someone else shampoo my hair and once my hair was shampooed I noticed two huge knots almost like locs, in the top of my head. There was one on each side.
I reached my hand up to feel my hair and all I can say is O-M-G! My hair was in such a huge knot that I cant even begin to explain that I saw and felt.
During the detangling process I applied my K-PAK, and Moroccan Oil and started to detangle. That helped to loosen it up a bit.
While my hair was being detangled I could hear my hair breaking and ripping! 3 1/2 hours later over 90% of the knots in my hair was
By this point I was in tears! I was too scared to access the damage‚ but when I did my worst fear had come to life.
Some of my hair was only 2 inches long in some areas of my head! My hair went from being healthy, thick and long to scraggly, thin, and short in some areas.
The worst part was when I got home I had areas that were still in knots! I used some Miss Jessies detangling products and that worked wonders! I wish I'd had that earlier, maybe if I did I'd have more hair.
So right now I'm deciding if I should cut my hair and start all over or just keep going and even it up later. I'll let you know what I decide.
Regardless, my plan is to keep my hair in sew in's and load up on the AfriGrowth60!
It's an amazing product! If you're having any growth issues, definitely give it a try I'll be sure to keep you posted on my progress.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas!
