2014-06-01 WASHDAY

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.

[1] Before I went to bed. I decided to do a pre-poo treatment overnight. Because of the Hairlista Coconut 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 –

MY HAIR DETANGLED

[2] I’m trying to keep up with co-washing my hair. In February I bought Organix Repairing Awapuhi Ginger Conditoner and it was time to try it out. I co-wash my hair the same way I wash my hair with a shampoo.

Wash day Sunday 27th April

IMG_0400Ow 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 -.

Cantu Shea Butter why did I ever leave you??

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.

Wish ‘hair products’ list

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.
