Hello lovely people! I hope your week is starting off very well!…I’m off today so you know what that means….blogs!!!
Yesterday was wash day for me so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to show you what products I use, method, and an update on my hair. The main reason I am going to be doing these kinds of blogs is really for me; to keep up with my hair journey progress.
Firstly, I would like to mention that I am going to be wearing wigs for a protective style all the way until my next relaxer. Let me tell you! I am loving this wig!
Ok enough of the selfies lol…wash day was yesterday! I actually love wash days. It is a great time for a little tlc for my mane!I first did a hot oil treatment with coconut oil, avocado oil, and Herbal oil because I have been experiencing some dryness.I sectioned my hair this time and applied the oil to make sure all of my strands get some oil. I let this sit on my head under a plastic bag for 30 min while I did some cardio to stimulate more heat.
After a nice workout, I washed my hair with As I Am Co-wash. Co-washing means conditioner wash. Washing your hair with regular shampoo is very drying to your hair. Instead you should wash with a conditioner sometimes. I personally co-wash once or twice a week and wash with a shampoo whenever I feel like my hair is itching more than usual or it needs a deep cleaning.
After, I t-shirt dried my hair and on 50% air dried hair applied my deep conditioner. Again I sectioned my hair so that all of my strands get some deep conditioner on it and let it sit under the plastic bag. I mixed all the products below and added some coconut oil to make my conditioner.
Before washing the deep conditioner out I detangled with a wide-tooth comb and then wash out using cold water (Your last wash should be a cold wash. This closes your cuticles and retains the moisture you just put on your hair) . On 80 % air dried hair I added my leave-in and continued to do the *LOC method to retain the moisture.
*The LOC Method : L= leave-in or liquid
C= cream (I use Shea Butter)
To end my wash day, I flat twisted my hair because I don’t know how to corn row yet. I will sleep with a satin scarf and continue to wear my wigs!
What are some of the products you use on your wash days??? Do you use any of these products?
