I'm finally back from my trip and one of the first things I wanted to do was wash my hair. I haven't been treating my hair the way I wanted to. For 4 weeks I haven't done a hot oil treatment or rinsed my hair with green tea.
But that changed on yesterday. (Thursday). My wash day went like this.
 Pre-shampooed with my hair with my castor oil mixture.
 Shampooed with Paul Mitchell Instant Moisture Daily Shampoo.
 Rinsed with Green tea. I also brewed the tea with a blend of the Orange Pekoe and Pekoe Cut Black tea. I don't know if there are some benefits to using Pekoe but it was in my stash of teas. Lol
 Applied Just for me hair milk conditioner right after the tea, and covered with a plastic cap.
 I rinsed the product out in the shower and wrapped my hair in a cotton shirt until it dried about 70%.
 Applied my leave-ins
I've been trying to grow out the nape of my hair. It has always been shorter than the rest of my hair but now that I've been reading many blogs I realize that it doesn't have to be that way. I'm going to try braiding my hair differently and babying my nape until it reaches its full potential.
