I went swimming yesterday. Unfortunately, my hair was in an old braid out. If you’ve read my swimming routine, you know I usually only swim while my hair is in twists. I didn’t have time to put in regular twists so I put in a lot of conditioner while sectioning the hair off in a few big twists.
After swimming, I began detangling. Let me tell you, it was a nightmare! I have never had a detangling session that bad. It just goes to show that I really need to stick to my swim routine.
After about 2 hours of detangling, I just decided to put in some big plaits. I then pinned the plaits up and slapped on a scarf. Wa-lah! A nice updo.
I thought I’d take this opportunity to “show off” my shed hair. I shed lots. I always have and probably always will. This is my shed hair after 3 weeks without combing. This is not from my recent horror detangling session but from the last time I washed my hair. I’ve been saving the hair in this bowl in order to share it with ya’ll (I’m sure my husband officially thinks I’m a freak LOL)
Remember, shed hairs will always have a tiny white bulb on the end. Broken hairs will not.
Anyway, back to the swimming. I’m going to try keeping these plaits in until I swim again, which should be this weekend. I’m going to try the same swimming routine, but with the plaits to see if it would work as well. I will update next week on how it goes!
