I have two moisturizers that I am dying to get rid of. I have found better moisturizers for the same price. I hate wasting money, so I would hate to throw away this whole bottle of Africa's Pride Moisturizer (the other one is Dark and Love moisturizer). HOWEVER, I have came up with a solution. I am only 3 days into this Protective Styling Challenge. I know that there are days where I am not going to want to take down my protective style so that I can make sure that my ends are moisturized. That is why I bought this huge spray bottle.
Where am I going with this? I took some of my moisturizer, some water and some oils and mixed it into this bottle (not in this order). When I tried it out, I realized that it was extremely watery and that a couple of squirts goes a long way. That is great news to me. I have made this "bun moisturizer", and it can stretch maybe this entire challenge. ***fingers crossed*** It really made a substantial amount. Well, after I sprayed my hair and my ends with it, my hair was very shiny. It was very moisturized. And the best part, IT WAS NOT GREASY. Nothing throws me off a ponytail/bun faster than a greaseball head. Lol. Back to this, I am so happy with this new mixture. I cannot wait to continue to use this during this challenge. I believe this will really help me wake up dull/dulling buns.
OAN: I have switched up the position of my bun to avoid tension breakage. I have seen alot of young ladies have breakage right where that ponytail holder lies. That usual area is where my most shorter pieces are due to my long bangs. I am trying to grow that entire area out because I am trying to avoid cutting my hair to the length of that area, which would put me at full neck length. I mean, my hair would look so gorgeously thick if I cut it back, but I am hoping that it will eventually grow out. So, I am going to have to stop cutting me a bang and letting it all grow out. I am ready for the challenge.
Thanks for reading.
