During the month of August I spent most of my time away from home. It was essential for me to make travel sizes of my products in order to travel. I washed my hair only twice this month but it still maintained its luster. When I returned home from my trip I deep conditioned it with the Blended Beauty Conditioner mixed with olive and castor oil. This brought the elasticity and shine back to my hair. I also trimmed my hair this month taking off a half of an inch all around. Now that the summer is winding down, I will wear wigs as a protective style and will not manipulate my hair as often. I am very happy with my hair’s consistent and stead growth and health and will continue to manage it under the wigs.
