I joined Jay and Jen’s 30 Day Hot Oil Treatment Challenge. For most of this stretch I’ve been deep conditioning as a pre-poo treatment. With this challenge I think it will be a nice change of pace to switch back to hot oil treatments. My first wash day on the challenge, I’m using Olive Oil
Last week’s braid out was ruined by a run in with some serious rain. I tried to salvage it by re-braiding that night but that was a fail. I ended up having to cowash to reset and air dry in a bun. Since then I haven’t done anything but air dry into a bun.

I was so close to picking up CHI Infra Treatment on Thursday night. I was browsing the beauty section at TJ Maxx when I saw that they had the liter size on clearance for $10! I felt this instant compulsion to purchase it because of the massive savings that were available to me even though
