'There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less'. - G. K Chesterton
I decided that after taking my braids out, I wanted to try the ' Conditioner Only Method', but modified. So I went and bought different conditioners to give a try and see which one I will eventually stick with. Below is what I came away with on my recent shopping trip. Not much but it was good.
My 3 new conditioners
Klippoteket Balsam - Normal Conditioner with Aloe Vera ( and 'Beer Yeast extract - great for detangling, protection and strengthening')
Pantene Nature Fusion - Moisture Balance Conditioner
Paul Mitchell Original - the Conditioner ('Leave in moisturizer, helps to balance moisture, prevent dryness and improve texture')
Tangle Teezer - Black (The Professional detangling hairbrush)
what it looks like
Three facial masks
Fudge warm mask ( for deep cleansing) Ingredients include Mediterranean clay, Glycerin, Vanilla extract, Zeolite (Volcanic mineral), Kaolin (fine clay).
Chocolate Mud Mask ( for deep cleansing and re-hydrating skin) Ingredients includes Cocoa and Shea butter, Kaolin, Illite (clay mineral) and Dead Sea minerals

A closer picture of the Tangle Teezer
I was the Happiest person when I saw the Paul Mitchell and Tangle Teezers in the stores. I was the most unhappiest when I saw the prices, but hey charge it to the game (so always wanted to use that phrase!!!!!). I will do a proper review on the Tangle Teezer as soon as I have used it.
About my hair. I took out the braids. Forgot to take pictures. Gasp!!!!!! I know.
However, I didn't lose as much as I thought considering this is my first time after having Maya that I am dealing with my hair - it was in braids for 9 weeks. And its postpartum hair. I did however notice that my edges have broken at the temples. I did do a quick length check and my hair reaches under my arm pits but I wont know for sure till I do a proper roller-set and perhaps flatiron to really get an accurate length idea.
For now, my hair is in large chunky twists and tied in a bun. Which is the reason for hair bands. I keep loosing them or they seem to be with the one sock that never gets to be with its partner. My hair is very soft though and I noticed a lot more thinner then before. And so much more manageable. Its really not as thick as it was before I got pregnant. So am really excited to see what pregnancy and postpartum has left my hair.
Note: All these products were bought and paid for with my own money. This is not a paid advertisement. I will be trying these products for the first time.
