Sunday 3rd January 2016
Sadly the festive season is over and it is time to go back to work, here is my first wash day for 2016.

Saturday night

I pre-pooed my hair with extra virgin olive oil and extra virgin coconut oil on Saturday 
evening and then left in overnight.

Sunday Morning
On Sunday morning I shampooed with Crème of Nature Moisture & Shine shampoo, lathering twice then towel dried for 2 minutes to rid of any excess water before applying Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor to the length of my hair, covered with a plastic cap and left on for 15 minutes whilst I made a coffee then rinsed.

I went on to deep condition my hair with Crème of Nature Intensive Conditioning Treatment sealed with extra virgin olive oil, covered with a plastic cap and then sat under the hood dryer for 30 minutes then rinsed once cool.

I t-shirt dried my hair for 30 minutes and then separated my hair into four sections. Then section at a time I applied my leave-ins; Crème of Nature Straight from Eden Detangling leave-in, Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave-in and sealed with Inecto Pure Coconut Oil Serum. I went on to detangle my hair in the same sections and then air-dried using a satin scarf to lay my edges.

Once 90% dry I removed my scarf, moisturised and sealed with Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter Moisturizer and my avocado oil & lavender JBCO and then put my hair in a loose bun whilst chilling around the house.

In the evening to go out for a meal I put my hair in a loose twist and ponytail style...

    1. My wash days used to take all day and I have no idea why! I also love how simple wash days are now I know what I am doing and what works for my hair x

  2. The volume of your hair is amazing!

  3. The hair’s natural oil binds to the hydrocarbons in car exhaust, sulfites, and metals, which, in combination with the oil, coats the hair.
