Natural Hair Condition & Scalp Massage Challenge Update

Sunday was Day 9 of my Condition & Scalp Massage Challenge. It went like this:

Wash day.  I’m so excited. I get to engage in some much needed self-care, give my hair the love and attention it needs to keep my hair healthy and my curls defined. People always ask if I do twist outs or curlers to make my curls pop. Nope. Not at all. Nothing but TLC for me. Self-care is on of the reasons I started my 30-day Condition and Scalp Massage Challenge. Today is Day 9. Follow me through the process.

  1. I’m spraying my hair with aloe and water. I made the mixture 50% purified drinking water and 50% aloe juice.
  2. I’m pre-pooing my curls with Tresemme Bontanique Conditioner by sectioning my hair and coating each section with the conditioner. Some people use coconut oil or olive oil to pre-poo. I like this. 
  3. Next I’m slapping on a pastic cap for 15 minutes. The heat from my head helps my strands soak up conditioner. 
  4. Next I’m cleansing my hair. I’m using As I Am Cleansing Pudding. I’m out of the Co-wash so I’m using my mom’s. Love You Mom.
  5. Now I’m deep conditioning. This is the long part. I’m gonna use Shea Moisture Raw Shea Restorative Masque and grape seed oil using the same process as the pre-poo. Section, apply and slap that plastic cap back on the night. I put my silk bonnet on top of it.
  6. I rinse out the conditioner I massage my leave-in onto the ends of my hair and work my way down to the roots.
  7. Finally I massage my scalp. I like to start at the top of my head and work my way down with my Jamaican Black Castor Oil. This is the best part. I take my time, spending at least five minutes on my scalp. (Thats long enough for me. Feel free to take more time for yourself when needed. It’s so relaxing. I rub the excess oil on the ends then style as usual.

There’s still time to join the challenge. Let me know if your interested.

I recently realized I have a passion for natural hair during on my journey toward self-acceptance and love. So much of who I am has always revolves around my hair. It reflects how I feel about myself internally. When I am depressed or stressed, I don't do my hair. If I do look like a million bucks, I feel like a million bucks, even if I'm flat broke. I started documenting my transition on Facebook and it spread to Instagram. I have been amazed at how I have come to love my kinks and curls. I didn't even know how to care for it when a started transitioning. It has been so liberating. I assumed the name LoveLEE around the same time as my transition because I needed to remind myself that I'm worthy of love. The image of women like me is skewed by the media and negative stereotypes. I refuse to confine since of love and beauty to society's standards. I'm starting this blog so other women will know that they don't have to be boxed in either. You are beautiful and flawless just the way you are.

Thanks for joining me.
