Since I've had my straight bundles installed, I've been in L-O-V-E!!!. This hair is swangin' ya’ll. There’s minimal shedding and the luster was on point. One day I started to notice hair on the floor. My hair looked a bit dull. I was con-fused! At this point I had my hair installed for about 2 months, and shedding was never a problem so I had to figure out what was going on. Being a full time nurse, entrepreneur and trying to get my waist snatched takes a lot out of a girl. When I thought back, I realized that I hadn’t washed my hair for a month (I know,I know smh). In the beginning I was very good about washing my bundles every week or two when I would re-lay my frontal. But the last time I did frontal maintainence I was lazy. I was not trying to wash my hair, blow dry it, lay my frontal THEN style my hair. Uh uh, NO. I just cleaned the least amount of the lace frontal that I could get away with and slapped that baby back on.
After I came to this conclusion I decided to co-wash my hair( washing with conditioner only) then I deep conditioned it. I wanted to put as much moisture back into my bundles as possible. I let it air dry half way, then got impatient and blow dried it and styled it. SHE WAS BACK! Luster on 100! Light, flowy, and smelling great. The ultimate test; combed through my hair and ran my fingers through my hair—2 strands!!. I did this for a couple of days with the same result. Now I feel like a bomb stush doll again.
Take home point: Remember that your bundles are an investment so treat them like one. So Stush bundles are virgin human hair. It needs to retain moisture just like your real hair does. Maintain its moisture by routinely applying light oils to the hair, sleeping with a satin scarf, bonnet and/or pillowcase and washing your hair regularly, alternating using shampoo and just co- washing.
