I should be ashamed of myself but I am not.
I have never waited this long to wash my hair but it seems as if every time I would think about doing it something would come up. My hair was not stinky and did not look too terrible but I could feel the dirtiness of it. Have you ever just felt nasty? Well, that is the feeling.
My friend asked me to go out to dinner with her and she captured this picture and as you can see, my locs do look a little on the dusty side. I still think they are beautiful- just dirty and beautiful.
I have never looked at myself as a lazy natural but I guess you can say that I may have just become one. Or, it could be that I am just a busy body and do not get around to it as often as I would like to.
My friend is a snap chat Queen and I have no idea how to use it but she snapped away at us throughout the night and all I could think of when I saw the pictures was I ought to be ashamed. It had been two months since I washed my hair. That may not sound so bad being that people wear braid styles for up to six months without washing their hair but I have never gone more than a month. It started to really mess with me.
Daily I would apply spritz water and an oil of my choice. I did not have an itchy scalp or product build up so that was a good thing. My locs were stiff and felt like they needed some TLC.
Today I am feeling refreshed as I kind of rushed and washed my hair before having to head out to work. I couldn’t take it anymore.
I used Creme of Nature products and in all honesty, I rarely use this product line for myself because I tried a conditioner years ago from this line and my hair felt awful and began shedding a lot. I don’t know why, I just know I ended up giving it away to a friend who said she loved it.
I purchased a detangling and conditioner shampoo and conditioner near the end of 2016 from the Creme of Nature line and so far it works pretty good on myself and children. I try to steer clear of it for my locs because it is “detangling” but that is all I had on hand today. It is time to either create some products for use or purchase! However, my hair feels great now. I no longer feel like I have a nasty nest on my head. My locs are flowing in the wind. Ok, maybe not flowing in the wind but you get what I’m saying. They have life now!
I can not say that I noticed any damage to my hair by not washing it for two months. I did have shedding but this is normal and nothing to panic about. Do I suggest you go two months without washing your hair? That is up to you. I am sharing my two month dirty hair story so that you can know that even as a blogger, I don’t stay up on maintaining my hair as often as people probably think I do. My hair is still healthy and I am a O.K.
No need to panic or feel ashamed if you can’t seem to stay on schedule with your hair. Life happens so be like the waves of the ocean and just flow with it.
How long have you gone without washing your hair?
Opinions stated within my review for the product Creme of Nature are my honest opinion. I was not paid to do a review and products were purchased by me, not sponsored.
Thou should embrace your natural hair journey!
I chose to love my hair no matter what stage I was in and my locs have flourished!
