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.

Wash day 15 February ‘14

So I finally decided to wash my hair. What I’m doing lately is really really bad. On February 9th I took down my u-part wig. It was two weeks already and my edges needed a break. But I was sooo tired that I really didn’t had the energy to go and wash my hair. So I told myself I will do it on Monday, after work * side eye *.

Step 1

The last time I clarify my hair was in September. I need to step my game up, but yeah it’s time to clarify my hair. For this routine I used ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo. I sectioned my hair in 8 parts. Working in parts works for me. after the wash my hair was rough, this shampoo really clarifies. When I was done washing I applied Redken Real Control Conditioner for some boost. I’m starting to like this conditioner. It’s a light weight conditioner so I left in for 5 minutes.

For about 6 minutes I t-shirt dried my hair. In the mean time I mixed my conditioner with some oils (Creme of Nature Professional Moisture Extreme Conditioner with castor, grape seed, peppermint, rosemary oil and glycerine). I deep conditioned for 45 minutes with a hooded dryer. When I’m done conditioning I let my hair cool off for 5 minutes. This conditioner is definitely a K E E P E R.

Step 3

I always start late with my routine, I don’t know why I always do that. In the evening I had a date with my girlfriends. I applied Garnier Fructis Nutri repair 3 leave-in  all over my hair and without detangling my hair I put it in a high bun and I was ready to go. I didn’t use a lot of product because the next day I planned to flat iron my hair.

Washing your hair is always a good thing. I’m 18 weeks post and  I love how my new growth feels.

2014.01.25 Wash dayOne week has gone by and I’m ready for my protective style again. I live in the Netherlands and the weather here SUCKS!!! So to protect my lovey hair I will be rocking my u-part wig with a closure.

Step 1
I started my routine with a pre-poo oil treatment.  I used my oil mix (click on the link, to see what my pre-poo oil mix is). In small section I applied the oil on my scalp and hair. I make sure that I massage my scalp with the oil and concentrate on my ends. After that I used my hooded dryer for about 30 minutes. I love the way my hair feels after this treatment, it’s so shiny and my ends are alive again lool.

Soooo .. this wash routine was a mess !!! I don’t know what’s up but for the past 2 weeks I have been slacking. Going to bed without moisturizing my hair or put a scarf on. Because of that my hair is breaking and shedding like crazy. I even skipped my washday on Sunday.
