It’s been a long time that I wrote a post about my washday, but don’t worry I’m back. This couple of weeks has been a bit of a struggle with my hair. The struggle are the hair loss and split ends. I have been lazy with moisturizing my hair at night and I notice that my hair reacts immediately to that – dry hair means breakage –
For the routine I wanted to start with a pre-poo treatment, but I changed my mind – laziness -. In two section I washed my hair using Mizani Moisturfusion Milk Bath Shampoo. I think it’s my third time using this shampoo and I like the fact that is has a milky texture and I doesn’t dry my hair out. My hair feels good after the wash. It’s bouncy and I can easily glide my finger through my hair.
This week I was free from work. So I decided to wash my hair on a Wednesday. I have been slacking again sleeping without a scarf during the week. I need to buy a satin pillow case to protect my hair.
For the pre poo routine I mixed Organix Pomegranate Green Tea Conditioner with the new oil mix (Grape Seed x Sesame Seed x Coconut). Before applying the conditioner I damp my hair with regular water. In sections of four I applied a decent amount to the hair and made sure that my ends was covered. With this routine I didn’t pay any attention to the time. When think about I let the treatment sit for more than an hour.
It was all about heat this washing routine. I’m planning to use heat (a hooded dryer or a steamer) regularly because of the cold weather. My hair had a good week. Almost every morning I moisturized with ORS HAIRepair Intense Moisture Crème. Why in the morning. Well I was lazy to moisturize my hair in the evening.
I started with a pre-poo oil treatment. I made a new oil mixture and I’m loving it – post about the mix coming soon – . In four sections I applied the oil. I really focused on my ends. I still suffering from split ends, it’s driving me CRAZY!! For some stimulation I applied Jamaican Black Castor Oil x Peppermint oil on my scalp. When applying the oil I massage my scalp. – when I was massaging my scalp I could feel my lovely new growth – I used a hooded dryer for a hour.
So I’m finally home from my trip and it was time to wash my hair. Because of my braids I had to find a different way to do my wash routine. To make it easy I used a spraying bottle.
I started with conditioning my hair. I mixed Cream of Nature Professional Moisture Extreme Conditioner with castor , rosemary oil and glycerine. I dilute the mixture with a little bit of water. I applied the mixture on the beginning of the braids. I deep condition my hair for about 1 ½ hours without heat.
Ugh i’m still slacking with my weekly hair routine. I think it’s time for a protective style, my dear friend the u-part wig lool.
–> I started with a pre-poo. For this pre-poo I used an oil mix (castor + olive oil). I will write a post about this mix. I pre-pooed for 30 minutes with heat. After the pre-poo my hair was so shiny.. my dead ends where a live again *happyface*
–> For my wash I used Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture & Shine Shampoo. I almost forgot about this shampoo. It’s is nice shampoo and it’s sulfate free.
