After my mishap with the Mane n' Tail Detangler, I reevaluated what I did with my hair during the week. Then I realized that an integral part of my regimen was missing. You may already know that I usually apply extra virgin organic coconut oil to my scalp a couple times a week. Well the past few weeks, I unintentionally stopped applying the coconut oil to my scalp.
How did that happen? It's another case of having my products stored in several places around the house. I have a 54oz tub of coconut oil that I keep in the upstairs bathroom. I don't use the coconut oil straight out of the tub, rather I pour it into an applicator bottle and keep it in the master bathroom. When I used up all of the oil in the applicator bottle, I completely forgot to refill it. I didn't realize because I've been using my jojoba oil to seal after I moisturize.
So last week I applied the coconut oil to my scalp and when I washed this weekend, I noticed a huge improvement in my hair. My hair detangled much easier than it has been in the past few weeks. The only reason I got the Mane n' Tail Detangler was to help me detangle my dry hair before I washed. Well as it turns out, I was having difficulty detangling because I stopped applying the coconut oil to my scalp. The coconut oil soften my newgrowth and makes detangling much easier.
This is a great example of how being consistent with your regimen is key to retaining length and avoiding setbacks.
