- Rubber bands
- Nizoral shampoo(review next post!)
- Jamaican Mango and Lime Locking Gel (review next post!)
- Spray Bottle filled with AVC rinse (10 parts water:1 part AVC)
- Duck clips....a lot of them :-)
I proceeded to spritz my hair with the AVC mixture and covered with a plastic cap and left on for 30 minutes. When I took the cap off, the dandruff seemed to have loosened from my scalp and my hair felt very soft. I washed with Nizoral and left it on my scalp for about 2 minutes.
I rinsed and used the JML + duck clips to secure it. Not as bad as I thought it would be. The parts really kept well since I used the rubber bands so I had no trouble whatsoever finding my parts. I was relieved!
The end result: TA DA!
I was happy to know that I could do my own hair without distaster being the end result but I was a little put off by the puffiness so I immediately took to the forums. My girls on Nappturality.com told me not to worry though and assured me that the puffiness is normal around this time. Once my hair locks, it will condense and the puffiness will go away. Thanks girls!
Knowing that I can do my own hair is such a rewarding thing. I can save money and be the only set of hands to touch my hair. I can do it from the comfort of my own home! I don't have to wait on unprofessional hairdressers! No more worrying about canceled appointments! This is the ultimate freedom for me. I am loving it so far.
