During summer, I tried the Cherry Lola Treatment, which is supposed to reduce frizz and define curls. I liked it a lot, even though it smelled like stir fry, but since BC’ing, I just hadn’t really thought of it. Also, I wasn’t sure about putting baking soda in my hair. Then, last week, I looked at my old post and decided to do it again. I’ve done the treatment about 3 times this past week, and I gotta say, damn! My hair loves this treatment, and really doesn’t have a problem with the protein in the yogurt or the baking soda.
I actually changed the formula a little bit – I used less baking soda and more amino acids. I also added a glob of my Elucence Moisture Balancing Conditioner to the mix. Oh, and the second time I did a DC after, but didn’t really see a difference in the results doing this. After treatment though, my hair seems much “clearer.” That’s the only word I can really use to describe it. It seems to smooth my hair cuticle and dramatically reduce my frizz/flyaways at the roots. My hair hasn’t gotten hard, but I am also sure to moisturize and condition like crazy. I read about some people experiencing their curl being loosened with this treatment, but I haven’t gotten any results like that really….if it has loosened my curl, it’s totally minimal and I really can’t see a difference. Anywho, just check out the pics.
On another random note…I think my hair is getting darker…Not sure what it is, I would say it’s my oil (it has henna and amla in it), but I’ve only been using it for a week? I dunno, weird…I’d like for summer to come now so I can get my natural highlights back!
