Relaxed wash routine

Wash day | August 29!


During the week my schedule was a bit off. For example, moisturizing my hair in the morning and not at night. Then there was some days I didn’t use a scarf at night. On the positive side I did more protective styles, like cornrow braid or cornrow twist my hair.

Pre poo treatment
It’s been a while, but it was definitely time for a pre-poo. I used Extra Virgin Coconut Oil all over my hair and Jamaican Black Castor Oil on my scalp. I did this treatment for an hour without heat. While I was applying the oil to my hair I noticed I had a lot of hair loss. The hair loss comes from not moisturizing my hair properly during the week.

Washing treatment
For this wash I decided to co-wash my hair. In the beginning of my hair journey co-washing was my friend, so I planned to do it more often. I used TRESemmé Naturals Nourishing Moisture Conditioner to co-wash.

Deep condition treatment
I used Aunt Jackie’s In Control Conditioner mixed with added supplements (Vitamin E oil x Sesame Seed oil x Peppermint oil x Glycerine). To speed up the process I used a hooded dryer. Deep condition for 15 minutes.

Styling process
I wasn’t sure how I was going to style my hair. In the afternoon I went out with my sister for some errands, so I decided to air dry my hair – it was a sunny weather –. I applied Cantu Shea Butter Argan Oil leave in cream all over my hair and sealed with Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Treatment. I like to air my hair with a high bun.

At night time (around 23:00 pm) I got home and decided to use curl formers to get some curls. My hair was 90% dry, so I used my water mix (Rose water x water) to damp my hair. Then I moisturized my hair with Aunt Jackie’s Curl La La Defining Curl Custard and sealed with Almond Oil. This was my first time using the curl formers.

The next morning my hair was 100% dry and nicely curled. I styled my hair and went on with my day.

Co-washing is good to keep the moisture
