Wash Routine

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.

When I was taking down my braids the hair loss was minimal, but I was afraid of detangling my hair. So when I took the braids down I let my scalp rest. Lool it felt like my scalp was gasping for air.

2014.01.18 wet hairStep [1] Before my wash I wanted to do a protein conditioner treatment, but I was lazy as always. So I decided to use Salerm Protein Shampoo. I washed my hair in 8 sections, yes 8 sections , because my scalp was sensitive.

Step [2] I used a t-shirt to dry my hair. Because of the protein shampoo it was necessary to use a good moisturize conditioner to give my hair a boost, that’s why I used Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner. After the wash my hair was so stiff, but as soon Nexxus touches my hair, I am on cloud 9!!!

I was a bit sad when applying the conditioner, because my hair was shedding.  Mind you I still haven’t  detangled my hair.

I deep conditioned my hair with heat for about 30 minutes and let it sit for a hour (I was busy watching Mob Wives lool).

Step [3] After I rinsed out the conditioner, I didn’t do much with my hair. I t-shirt dried my hair for some minutes and then applied Garnier Fructis Repair leave-in. After that I put my hair in high ponytail and let it air-dry.

Step [4] In the morning, it was time to moisturize and seal my hair. But there was a problem. I finished my ORS hair lotion & Elasta QP Olive oil & Mango butter and haven’t restock them yet. I need to go to the store ASAP!! But I had a plan B, thank God. I mixed my Herbal Essence ‘Hello hydration’ with Rose water. This mix really helped, it softened my hair and it really helped with detangling my hair.

Step [5] After moisturizing my hair I styled my hair in a low ponytail, but my edges was looking crazy. To get my edges sleek I applied Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera gel and put a scarf on it.
