Ashiya's Hair Diary: Creamy Crack Part II

Changing my routine over the past month revealed an addiction I did not realize I had.  I left the world of relaxers only to find new creamy crack: cream conditioners.  I traded cream conditioners for hot oil treatments over the last month and am very pleased with the difference.  I have always been a fan of oils, but there was still a part of me that felt as if I weren't conditioning my locs if I didn't use a "regular" conditioner periodically.

My hair feels so free and light now that I've adopted oils for all of my conditioning treatments.
When I noticed the difference between my locs feeling "soft" and feeling "weak" after conditioning, I did a bit of research and found out I was late to the party.  It seems that more and more people with locs are turning to oils for conditioning as well.  I also realized this could be a huge contributing factor to the thinning I was experiencing with my hair.  

Black Earth Products Enhancing Herbal Conditioner: My favorite of my addictions.

I could knew some of the conditioners didn't work well for me, so I decided they were off my product list and moved on.  I didn't think to look at the type of conditioner in general.  A few more trips through Google and I found Yannie The Locologist who hosts weekly hot oil challenges for her clients and readers.  I'm going to commit to hot oil treatments as necessary until the end of the summer and check the progress of my hair at that point.

My creamy fix when I needed it quick and cheap.
I also plan to try some herbal rinses after some inspiration from my hair muse Esosa Edosomwan, I've a also decided to give herbal rinses a try.  I'm sure it will take some time to make a rinse that works well for me, but I'm looking forward to experimenting!

Now that I have a whole new world to explore without looking back, let me know your favorite hot oil treatment.  If you've tried herbal rinses, let me know!
