So it has been 2 weeks today since I last washed my hair with shampoo! To find out why click here.
The alternatives that I have used so far are an egg and lemon wash, Cassia Obovata and just good old water.
I was suppose to take a picture of my hair after the cassia obovata wash but I forgot. I know I'm useless (can I still blame it on baby brain even though my youngest is two?!)
Anyway I used the cassia obovata on Friday and it's now Wednesday and this is what my hair is looking like now...
|It's not green yey|
The cassia obovata was really weird to use, it's thick like clay and you have to kind of layer it onto your head as if you are icing a cake. It also smells a little funky!
I made up my paste with the cassia obviata powder and water and then caked my head in the lot. I then covered my head with a shower cap and left it on for 1 hour.
After an hour I rinsed it off (as best I could, that stuff is stubborn) and then just left my hair to dry naturally.
Personally I thought my hair looked awful, it felt like straw and smelt odd and I wasn't sure I had used it properly. However I went out for dinner the next evening and I got a lot of compliments about my hair (Mainly that it look full of volume) and I must say that it did curl really well afterwards. So perhaps it wasn't too bad after all.
I'll be using it again in 6 weeks so just have to wait and see what happens next time.
Today, 5 days after using the cassia obovata, my hair looks very greasy but it still has lots of volume and feels a lot thicker than normal? (probably not helped by the fact that I haven't brushed it all week, I know lazy girl!) I also swear that it has changed colour a bit, it's darker but brighter if that makes sense.
I'm going to wash my hair tonight with just water (don't really want to use the egg and lemon wash as I don't know how that would react with any cassia obovata left on my head). While washing it I'll also give it a good massage to get the oils moving around and see what it looks like tomorrow.
I'll keep you posted (if I remember lol) x
