As for me, with the hot weather and having been busy, I've just been practicing benign neglect on my hair this week.
That simply means that while I haven't been going out of my way to do deep treatments or anything in particular to enhance my hair's health, I've just been putting it up, forgetting about it, and doing it no harm.
Since I touched up my roots on Sunday, I've been able to go three days between washings, as seems to be the norm immediately after colouring. After about a week and a half, I do find that I need to wash every other day, as I've mentioned before.
It's actually quite nice to be in a benign neglect phase, because it means I'm not thinking about my hair's length, progress, or its condition. At the same time, just putting it up in a protective updo is making sure it doesn't get damaged.
When it gets hot and humid like this, I am very thankful that I don't live down south in a place that has this weather for much longer than we experience it. I know that a lot of people love the heat, but while I love summer, heat and humidity really does make me wilt.
I do love the changing seasons, as well. I wouldn't give it up for anything.
I wish everyone a lovely and happy weekend.
