I’ve been more interested in doing a million other fun things that take care of my hair the last week. So it got quite dirty with both greasy sebum and the flaky, waxy stuff.
It really needed a good scritching and a CO-wash.
This morning I suddenly found myself obsessed with the colour difference between my ends and the roots. I get those fits from time to time. It doesn’t matter how much I tell myself that it’s just natural and the result of me being outside in sunlight and general wear from the last 12½ years. Or that everyone has fade of some degree.
So, acting on my fade-fit, I threw my braid up in a bun and slathered raw honey on the scalp-hairs. My thought was that a quick honey-lightening would even out the colour. I pretty much covered everything except the bun and used a comb to “rake” the honey down a bit.
5 minutes later I was full of regret and jumped in the shower to rinse the honey out.
Gotta say that for my random fade-fits: They come in strong, but fade fast. Haha.
With the honey out of my hair, I had lost the desire to further clean my hair and just braided it and ignored it.
But now I just realised that all the flakes are gone. They honey must have sucked them up?
My hair is still pretty greasy and need a wash, but the waxy stuff is completely gone.
Honey removes waxy build up but not grease?
So honey + flakes + rinse = Flakes are gone, but the oil remains?
This requires more experimentation.
