Wash Day Diary - 4 Weeks Post Relaxer

Monday, November 02, 2015

Sunday's wash day had to be quick and easy as I had to to be ready and out of the door by 2.30pm for my sister in law's baby shower and I could not afford to be late.

Here are the steps followed for yesterday's washday:

Pre-pooed my hair with my virgin coconut oil on Saturday evening and left in overnight. On Sunday morning as soon as I woke up I shampooed using Crème of Nature Moisture & Shine Sulfate free Shampoo.

Towel dried for 5 minutes then deep conditioned with ORS HaiRepair Nourishing Conditioner mixed with my Castor oil mix of Lavender JBCO & pure castor oil, covered with a plastic cap and sat under hood dryer for 30 minutes, rinsing once cool.

T-shirt dried for 40 minutes before  applying my leave-ins; Crème of Nature Straight from Eden Detangling Leave-in, Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave-in and Crème of Nature Argan Oil. I detangled my hair in sections, added a few drops of Fantasia IC Olive Oil Serum then air dried with a satin scarf laying down my edges.

When my hair was 90% dry I moisturised and sealed using Root2Tip Triple M Miracle Moisture Milk and my Avocado & Castor oil mix (avocado oil, lavender JBCO and pure castor oil). I also oiled my scalp with my castor oil scalp mix; pure castor oil and lavender JBCO and massaged my scalp for 5 minutes before putting my hair in a loose bun and laying my edges with my satin scarf whilst I got ready.

The weather here in the south of the UK was amazingly warm yesterday so I decided to wear my hair down...

How was your wash day?

  2. Agreed! Your ends look so thick and healthy. Keeping that hemline together can be challenging. My wash day needed to be quick too. I am back to my good old bun! I've got to pick up on my castor oil. I need to get my hands on the Lavender JBCO too!

    1. Thanks Andrea, you're not wrong about keeping the hemline together but I'm trying to dust more often to keep the split ends at bay :)
