Wash day 19th April ‘14

untitle_Fotor_Collage_Fotor[1] I started with a pre-poo treament. The  coconut/olive oil mix was applied on my hair and  the black castor /peppermint oil on my scalp. I used hot water to warm up the coconut/olive oil mix.

 [2] Since last week I have been using Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger. So far this shampoo is oke, but I’m not sold yet. After the wash I did a quick conditioning treatment with Redken Time Reset conditioner. In section applied the product on my hair. After 5/6 minutes I rinsed it out.

[3] After drying my hair with a t-shirt I applied Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner mixed with macadamia, rosemary and peppermint oil. I deep condition with heat for 50 minutes. After that I let my hair cool off for 20 minutes.

[4] Lately I don’t know what to do after a wash. I’m planning to stop with air drying for a while, but as usual I went for the air dry method. I used Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine and Olive Oil & Mango Butter Leave-In H2 Conditioner.

I sealed my hair with John Frieda Frizz Ease serum and then styled my hair in a high bun.

2014.01.18 Wash day

For the past 4 weeks I have been wearing my u-part wig with a closure. Hahaha let me tell you .. I was so afraid for the closure. I bought the closure last year in March and I finally decided to use it. I will write a post about how I maintain my hair with a u-part wig.

When I do this protective style I make sure that I was my hair every two weeks. So yesterday  was time for a wash.

2013.12.15 wash day

Step  1 -Pre-Poo

 [A] every time I start with my wash routine, I make sure that my hair is detangled. I do my detangle method in four parts, it’s easier for me that way and less damaging to the hair. [B] Each part I apply my oil pre-poo mix first, then I put some oil on my scalp and massage it. To make the treatment complete, in small sections I apply the pre-poo mix. I made sure that I gave my problem areas (nape, edges and ends) some extra love.  [C] I cover my hair with a plastic bag and sit under the dryer for 30 minutes.

Step 2 – Wash

[D] My wash routine is so simple and short. For this wash I used Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo. I can’t wait to finish this bottle, I don’t like it. It’s supposed to be a moisturizing shampoo, but I don’t agree. Because I don’t like this shampoo I only washed my hair once, normally I wash it twice.

Step 3 – Deep condition

[E] After the wash I cover my hair with a cotton t-shirt for about 20 minutes to soak up the water. I applied Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner on each section, covered my hair with a plastic bag and sat under the dryer for 45 minutes.  What I love about this conditioner is that you don’t need a lot of product. I didn’t mix this conditioner with an oil. It’s the first time that I use the shampoo and conditioner together. Let’s see how that will work out.

Oke so after washing my hair I wasn’t happy. My hair was moist from the conditioner but my hair was still stiff from the freaking shampoo. I was extra gentle with my hair while rinsing out the conditioner.

Step 4 – Leave-in-conditioner

[F] I applied Garnier Fructis Repair leave-in all over my hair. Normally I will apply the leave-in in small sections, but I’m lazy. I concentrated on my ends, nape and edges. [G] After applying the leave-in I let my hair air-dry.

Step 5 – Moisturize & Seal

[H] In small sections I applied my moisture mix (ORS Hair Lotion x Rosewater). For sealing I used John Frieda Frizz Serum. My hair wasn’t 100% dry when moisturizing my hair. The rest of the air-drying was overnight.

Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo is not my friend !!!

Wash day 20th October ’13

[1] I started my wash day with a pre-poo. I really need to stick with my weekly pre poo treatment. For my scalp I used an oil mix (castor + peppermint oil). On my hair I applied Herbal Essence ‘Hello Hydration’. Before applying the conditioner, I sprayed my hair with water, just to make my hair a bit damp.  I really like this conditioner for a pre-poo and co-wash treatment. I pre-pooed my hair for 30 minutes without heat.

[2] I used Nexxus ‘Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing shampoo’. This is my 3rd time using this shampoo and to be honest I don’t find it moisturizing. It does make my hair soft, but I can’t connect on the ultimate moisturizing part. 2013.10.20 wash day
