Six weeks can sure enough fly by fast! It’s time for my trim on my natural hair so that means visiting Fahrenheit the Evolution on Fifth Ave and sitting in Shalaya’s chair. Since her book has opened to new and returning clients I have remained consistent with my trim every six weeks.
The picture above is my hair after a wash N go, and this is typically how I leave my hair when I visit the salon. Of course it’s a few days old when I visit. The process includes washing my hair with shampoo and conditioner, massaging my scalp, blow drying my hair after using a heat protectant oil and then trim. I don’t get my hair styled because I do not flat iron my hair so I style it myself once I go home. For this type of appointment the cost is under $40.
When Shalaya blew my hair out we both couldn’t believe how much my hair has grown since my last trim on April 1st. I recently shared with you all that I prefer a twist out over a wash N go because my hair shrinks so much, but they say the more your hair shrinks the more healthy it is. See the picture below and you will see that the shrinkage is real.
Once I got home I thought to myself embrace the afro you’re teaching hair goals slowly but surely. I found a small scarf from my mother and I used it as a head wrap and I received so many compliments.
No matter what stage you’re in for your healthy hair journey, embrace and own every step no matter how long, short, thin or thick, all hair is beautiful. Not every hair product will work for everyone. Develop your own hair regimen and use what works for you.
