Feed Me Seymour!

By January 27th, 202111 Comments

That’s what my hair is telling me right now. I haven’t done a good deep condition in more than 3 weeks. It’s also telling me:

  • Seal me!: I’ve been a bit lax lately on the sealing and day to day maintenance of my style. My ends aren’t splitting or breaking, but they are dry and tangly. I need to do something ’bout it!
  • Fatten me up: It’s been nearly a month since my last henna treatment, and boy can I tell! My once thick, and bountiful mane is a bit more scalpy and on the thin side. For me, the effects of henna last about 3 weeks. After that, the thickness, intense shine, and subtle loosening diminishes. My hair returns to its thin, fine, and dainty self.
  • Water me: Although I complained about a 45 minute detangling session a couple of weeks back, and vowed to NEVER EVER let my hair go that long between stylings again…I keep doing it! I’ve only been styling my hair once a week, and I’m paying for it! On one hand, it’s less manipulation, and more time to do things unrelated to hair. But on the other hand, it takes FOREVER to get the knots out, and I lose more hair than I should.
  • Take your vitamins!: I need to do this on a much more regular basis.

If you get really still, and listen, your hair is telling you what it desires. What are your curls telling you, and whatcha gonna do about it?!

    LOL at Libra!!!! I feel you! I have been going through so much conditioner its scary. My hair is probably telling me that it wants to be moisturized (even though I have a million and one and cannot find the right one.) But honestly i can't really tell what my hair wants…thats probably why it is sad…..

    My hair is telling me that I need to start eating better and working out more often because nothing I put on it externally will get it as healthy as it could be…. *sigh* I'm starting today…

    My hair shouldn't be telling me anything. I've been DCing twice a week. If anything, I should be telling it to get a job because of the extra conditioner I'm using lol

    My hair is telling me to be alot more gentle and take my time handling my hair. Lately I've beeen doing a rush job of detangling. My hair is also telling me to give it a bit more attention like I did when I was transitioning.

    Mine are telling me to cut off the relaxed ends. I am waiting to let my new growth grow out more before I do the big chop, but my curls are being held hostage by the ends. We clip my ends every 8 weeks. My top & back are totally natural and it curls so nicely, but the front and sides are begging to join in.

    Mine is telling me to DC more and be more consistent with my vitamins. I will say, since adding a little olive oil to my Herbal Essences HH condish, it's been a lot more moisturized 🙂

    My hair wants one thing, pure and simple – MOISTURE. I'm trying to do weekly henna glosses mixed with Aubrey Organics in addition to deep conditioning every other day for the rest of the summer AND protective styling. So far my hair is loving me, but I don't know how long I can keep it up!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    girl, i know! I'll do better 😀

  • Maria says:

    Now now Nicky you should know better! LOL But the good thing is that your hair is also saying "I forgive you" LOL and so go back to the pampering and taking care of it. My hair is saying "I heart you!" I rollerset 5 days ago and I've been bunning it since then, applying hemp seed butters to the ends every morning, just treating her oh so well. Me and her are still in love. *LOL*
