This past month has been pretty uneventful hair-wise, well at least in comparison to previous months. I haven't changed my hair or skincare routine since Shampoo-Free (Months 5 & 6) + My All Natural Skincare Routine, but I have noticed that my hair seems to be growing like a mofo in the past 2 months especially.
I continue to wash my hair once a week with either baking soda and water or an egg, and I condition with apple cider vinegar and water or fresh lemon juice and water.
I feel like my hair might benefit from weekly deep conditioning but I haven't bothered to do anything about it because for the most part my hair is in a ponytail with a kitty ear headband so I don't feel a sense of urgency to do something different at this point. Also, the fact that my hair is up 99% of the time means that overall I'm pretty unaware of what my hair is up to. It's only when I wear it down to go dancing that I notice its condition and length and both are a nice surprise. No complaints! My waves seem to be pretty happy when they are free to float around, and I'm just enjoying not needing to do anything special with my hair to have it look and feel great.
I'd really like to get out of the daily ponytail habit though because I know elastics aren't good for my hair. I don't use regular elastics, mind you. I use fabric ones but I can't imagine it's a great thing for my hair, regardless. I know there are some great elastic options on the market I can explore that are pretty safe for hair and I'm sure I'll look into those eventually. But for now, I prefer my hair out of my way while I live life in Mandyland.
See you in month 8!
