Candice's Hair Diary: Fall 2014 Update

I'm usually not excited about my hair routine. But I was
loving this stretched twist-out.

Sometimes hair maintenance gets boring. Wash, condition, twist, repeat. So... I've decided to try new things. I'm going to be searching for new products to try for the fall/winter season. I have already noticed increased dryness in my hair. Summertime was so easy-going this year. But the fall season is already like "Turn down for what!" So I have to devise a game plan:

Step 1:  Deep Conditioning. I've got to deep condition more often. I'm thinking once a week. I definitely need to condition at least 3 times a month. I don't have a problem with growth or length retention, but I know that I should beef up my deep condition schedule before the split ends take over my hair.

Step 2: Cleanse. I'm going to make it a point to do a thorough cleansing of my hair at least once a month. I admit: I became comfortable with co-washing because it makes my hair look awesome and it saves a step. But I need to get back in line with at least a monthly shampoo and / or ACV rinse.

Step 3. Trim. It's totally time for a trim. I'm going to take a trip to a salon because I can never get it right on my own. I've noticed that as soon as my hair gets dry, the single-strand knots start to multiply with the quickness. They are so annoying!

Step 4: I really didn't have a step four. I did this to have an even number of steps. I rhink I'll make this one random. I should do more protective styling. Speaking of which: I bought a wig! But I'll talk about that in a separate post. I've noticed my edges growing back. I'm SO HAPPY. They aren't where they should be, but thank God they aren't where they were a few months ago. Also, I'm really focused on health and wellness. I've been working on fitness. Expect more fitness related talk in future hair diaries.

The last time I found a product I loved, it was on accident. Where do you look to find new hair products? What changes are you making to your winter hair routine?
