Wash Day Diary - 5 Days Post Relaxer

Sunday 4th January

After my corrective relaxer in my last post, I also decided to flat iron my hair and by the time Sunday came, I could not wait to wash my hair. I have not flat ironed my hair for years and I have not missed having bone straight hair at all, I did not enjoy .. I did not enjoy having flat ironed hair and could not wait to have my air-dried hair back…

The week after my relaxer touch up I usually follow this up with a hard protein treatment for my next wash day. For some reason I completely forgot….

Here are the steps followed for Sundays wash day:

Deep conditioned on dry hair with L'Oreal Elvive Full Restore Hair Masque and sealed with my oil mix; avocado oil, peanut oil, EVOO and grapeseed oil, covered with a plastic cap and sat under my hood dryer for 40 minutes.

Shampooed with CON Argan Oil shampoo.
Tea rinsed with Green tea and let sit on my hair for 5 minutes.
Rinsed and did a quick condition with CON Argan Oil conditioner mixed with JBCO, covered with a plastic cap and sat back under the dryer for 10-15 minutes.

T-shirt dried for 30 minutes.

Sprayed hair with Mane & Tail Detangler and finger detangled my hair, then detangled with a wide teeth comb. Once detangled, I applied my leave ins; Root2Tip Triple M Milk, Shea Moisture Yucca & Baobab Thickening Growth Milk and Orifluido Argan Elixir before air-drying using the scarf method.

Once 80-90% dry I then went on to moisturise and seal with Root2Tip Triple M Milk and Grapeseed oil and EVOO.
