I'm currently in the Castor Oil Challenge at Hairlista.com. So, I've been rubbing castor oil into my scalp two and sometimes, three times a week.
Although castor oil is thick and sticky feeling to the hands, it is a nourishing emollient for hair. It assist is helping to maintain moisture. It is also touted toward hair growth.
Two weeks ago, I did my fourth henna treatment. I always follow a henna treatment with a deep conditioning treatment of Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose and Olive Oil.
Last week, I did a pre-poo of conditioner with oil and slept with it over night and most of the next day. After co-washing, I applied a mix of deep conditioning treatment of Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose and Olive Oil. My hair felt great but thinner and more easily manageable while styling.
So, this week, I did a pre-poo and deep conditioned again.
While styling I saw several short sections of hair while styling in one section. It didn't looked damaged at all.
I get an average amount of shed hair while detangling and always see at least a few short hairs due to my styling technique.
I haven't noticed any hair on my clothing and nothing out of the ordinary with my hair.
I have changed my routine recently from Qhemet Biologics Amla Olive Heavy Cream and Olive/Honey Hydrating Balm (Moisturizers) with aloe vera gel (styler) to Ohm Body Sweet Hair Pudding and castor oil. Ohm Body's Sweet Hair Pudding is a base of Aloe, Shea Butter and Castor Oil along with other yummy ingredients so, it's a moisturizer and styler in one.
So, is it shed hair or breakage?
