I'm Doing the Greenhouse Effect (GHE) on my hair again!

Yes. Again.

I haven’t done this in a while and I remember three years ago when I was doing it, I was thinking about transitioning, which didn’t work out for me. I was pleased with the results overall.

Greenhouse Effect (GHE)

This time I am just using one oil– Shikakai enriched Herbal hair Oil. Here are the ingredients (from Amazon)

As you can see, I am wearing a very warm hat. When I moved to DC, I realized how treacherous the wind chill was pretty quickly. You literally get brain freeze in the winter when the wind blows. This is the second warmest hat I have ever owned! I have a gray one similar to it but it’s way more fluffy! Underneath the trooper hat I am wearing a shower cap and a black sleeping cap. This is my first night wearing the trooper hat to bed– hopefully I won’t wake up in the middle of the night and throw it away. I am sure I will get a lot of steam this way. Last night I just wore the shower cap and the black cap and it was fine, my hair was still pretty wet when I woke up. I plan to do the GHE at least five (5) day a week. and then wash on the 6th day. I will do this for exactly one month and check my progress on THIS

Result of a darn closure, wet hair

THIS is the result of a closure. NO MORE CLOSURES OR U-PART WIGS FOR ME! I am petrified that this happened and I really hope it grows back. I will just stick to my wigs from now on! Speaking of which, while I am doing this of course I cannot wear my hair out, so I will be wearing a wig, which I normally do anyway.

Wish me luck!
