Saturday evening I went to a birthday party and I new I was fucked for the next day. I really wanted to wash my hair before I went to church, because my hair was DEAD!!! So I decided to start my wash routine at night.
 Before I went to bed. I decided to do a pre-poo treatment overnight. Because of the HairlistaCoconut Challenge I used Coconut oil on my hair and applied an oil mix (black castor oil x peppermint oil) on my scalp. I warmed the coconut oil with my hand, that’s the easy way.
– I love me some pre poo treatment. In the morning my hair was so shiny and moist –
Ow boy my hair needed a wash. I’m not the type to wash my hair two times a week, but sometimes I think it is necessary.
I started off with a wash. I used Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo. As always I wash my hair in 4 sections. During the wash I detangled my hair with my fingers. When I was done, my hair was really fluffy, and the funny part is I still don’t know if this shampoo is a KEEPER!!
I couldn’t find my t-shirt so I dried my hair with a towel. After that I let my hair air dry for a little bit (15 minutes) and then deep conditioning with KeraCare Intensive Restorative Masque. It was my first time using this product and so far so good. I’m not really familiar with masque conditioner, but the texture of the product feels light, like a normal moisturizing cream. I deep condition for a hour without heat. My hair was soo bouncy- fluffy- soft when I rinsed out the conditioner. It was just hairlicious !!
In the beginning of my hair journey Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Repair Cream was my BABY and lately I have been neglected it. In sections I applied the leave-in and gently detangeled my hair with a shower comb. I really concentrated on my problem areas, my ends, edges, crown and nape. I pinned my hair up for it to air dry. In the evening my hair was still damp, but I had to moisturize my hair before I went to bed. I applied ORS Hair Lotion on my hair and didn’t use an oil to seal – laziness -.
 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.
 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.
 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.
 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.
Last year I made a list for myself about products that I wanted to try out. Unfortunately I’m a product junkie. I am always buying stuff and the bad thing is some I don’t even use. So the list was really helpful for me.
My list in 2013
The products that I bought:
– Salerm Protein Shampoo
– Creme of Nature Moisture Extreme conditioner
– Mane N Tail Deep Moisturizing Conditioner
– Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine leave-in
– Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango Butter
– Jamaican Black Caster Oil
I’m in love with some of the products, and when I say in love … ow boy I’m hooked, lool. My number one love is the Elasta QP Olive Oil Mango Butter. This creme really .. really helped me. I will do a review about it. And the second place goes to …….. Creme of Nature Moisture Extreme Conditioner. This conditoner … what!! Lool. I’m so glad that I found this conditioner.
From all the products that I purchased I’m not sure if I will buy Mane N Tail and Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine leave-in again.
My hair was screaming for a wash. I was free from work .. so I decided to wash my hair .. Well co-wash my hair. I haven’t co-washed my hair in a long time. I remember the days that I loved co-washing my hair .. I need to do it much more often.
 I deep condition my hair on dry hair. I used ORS replenishing conditioner (I finished the bottle). When I condition my hair I always use oils. For this DC I used: macadamia, grape seed, castor, peppermint and rosemary oil. I randomly picked this oil except for castor oil. Castor oil is one of my fav oil for DC. I used my hooded hair dryer (Braun Drying Hood Elegance HLH 20) for about 30 min and then DC another 30 minutes without heat.
