Today I pre poo'd with castor oil and the Loreal Everstrong. My scalp gets itchy exactly 7 days.  So far I've pre poo and co-wash every seven days.

Next because of the itchy scalp I'm going to start adding different oils to my castor oil to thin it out and help my scalp. I read on K.I.S.S. to add peppermint oil, eucalyptus oil and rosemary oil.

I'm also going to try black tea rinses to stop my shedding. My shedding has slowed down. However Thursday night I was not nice to my hair I SLEPT on it no scarf on a cotton pillow case BOOOOOO.

I have to stop that!

Bantu knots

This week I tried Bantu knots overnite to produce soft waves. This was my first time trying this style. I'm 4 weeks post and my hair has some new growth. I'm bored so I decided to try somthing new. I went to K.I.S.S  and Tracee had just did a tutorial so I was siked! I twisted  4 knots basically parted hair into four sections.  I used my diluted wrap setting lotion on each section twisted and held with a hair pin. Followed by a misting of CHI and I wrapped with a silk scarf and went to bed.

In the morning I untwisted each knot and separated the knots. I sort of liked it was really wavy. Since my hair  is SL it was a little bushy.  I think it will look much better at APL or BSL. When I do this again I will only do two knots until my hair reaches the above mentioned lengths. Maybe the waves will be looser.
