I can’t believe we’re two months into my first healthy hair care challenge. Time goes by so fast. At the beginning of the challenge in August I maintained my hair regimen with no concerns but lets be honest sometimes doing our hair all the time can become time consuming. So in September I decided to switch it up between two protective styles.
My first style was my favorite D.I.Y of havana twists. I oiled my scalp every other day using Tropic Isle Living: JBCO and sprayed it daily with aloe vera juice. After two weeks I took them out and prepped my hair for my next style. Prepping for me is a wash routine with extra TLC followed by moisturizing my hair with Camille Rose Naturals Coconut Water Leave-In Treatment, Almond Jai Twisting Butter and lightly sealed with JBCO.
Up next was a first for me, tribal braids. I loveddddd these braids, my stylist Daisa Hair Studio never disappoints when it comes to feed-in braids. She takes her time and it shows. My braids latest three weeks and the take down took no time. My hair had little shedding which is always a plus. Afterwards I did an extra special wash day routine which included my hooded steamer. I always feel like after wearing braids for a while you should always give your hair a little more care than normal simply because while your hair is protected it can be hard sometimes for your hair to stay moisturized.
It has been almost a week since I’ve been protective style free and I can definitely notice changes in my hair. Its been said that JBCO helps not only with hair growth but possibly can help thicken your newly grown hair as well. I have been using JBCO consistently every other day for two months and I can say confidently say it has played a major part in contributing to my healthy hair growth. Also, I have started taken liquid biotin. Liquid biotin absorbs faster in your body which means all that goodness takes effect quickly. Check out an updated clip on my hair below:
For the month of October I will definitely continue giving my hair all the love it needs and having fun with more protective styles. The switch up has been fun.

Love and light always,
