Week in review: 9 weeks post|| Wash day || biotin

OK, ladies. If I'd been told that I'll be sharing a week 9 post with you, I would have laughed it off. However, I know that since I brought my "other person" to this place, I haven't really been surprised. I mean 2 years ago, this 9 weeks would have been a norm.
Anyway, this week has been an inversion one. I inverted from Tuesday to Thursday because honestly the dizziness I had whilst inverting on one of the days scared the day light out of me so I quit.

Wednesday

Mira of mzdirectiongh was able to get me a bottle of 1000mcg Spring Valley biotin. It says to take up to 5 times a day but I take one. I haven't had breakouts with biotin of 5000mcg so I don't think this would.

 

Thursday

From the day I got the cornrows installed, I've been applying jbco daily to the scalp. The worry I had was since I couldn't wash the hair, it might smell badly. I decided to try the baby wipes on Friday.

Friday

I decided to undo the style to switch it up which could also help with using the wipe to clean. Once the style was undone, I couldn't stand the "stench"! The jbco mixed with black seed oil on my scalp daily was a big mistake. Add that to inversion oiling and you get overdose. The last thing I need is to have that smell ( for many reasons I can't share here, a smelling hair is out of the question). Wiping wasn't going to help since the smell was due to the oils trapped in the rows. I took the for rows down! I know it was one of my March mini goals but if I couldn't stand the smell, you can imagine what others would think. Add that oil to my sweaty scalp, and you get double doze. I'm happy that for ONCE I wasn't eager to take down this style regardless of how boring the one way style was. I wasn't also using a braid spray as I hadn't gone to buy one yet so that was another cause. Lesson 2: if you are going to be using oil on your scalp, get a braid spray.

When I first applied the jbco to my scalp, my scalp itched like crazy! The same happened on the second and third applications. It stopped after that.

I didn't want to wash as I had no light but when I laid down my head on my bed, I had the most disgusting smell left on my pillow. Yes, gross but I want to tell you exactly what it is so you don't do daily oiling! I grabbed a few products and cleansed the hair.

I have some almost used up products which is good. I'd wanted to buy more products; I've changed my mind. I will let more run out before replacing them. However, I'm going to get some shampoo bars to use. That will mean item no 3 is out of my product list. Yeah!! I've eyed shampoo bars ever since EbonyCPrincess of longing4lengthhttp://www.longing4length.com shared her cool experience with them.

I look forward to next week when I do a bit of celebration ( you will know when it happens).

PS: Wash day post will be up soon.

  1. Glad you found a remedy for your hair. I can't oil my scalp everyday for similar reasons. Have you tried just rinsing the hair?

    The middle part was twist and that was going to be difficult to wash as it would have unraveled smh. I didn't know she didn't burn the ends.
