Last wash routine for the month March and it’s time to detox my scalp. I was contemplating to do a clarify routine or detox, but yeah detox it is!
“Let’s wash all the dirt away”
Last time I detox my scalp I noticed that my hair was a bit dry, that is why I decided to do an oil treatment before my wash. For my ‘hot’ oil treatment I used my own mix (Jojoba, Castor, Olive, Tea Tree & Rosemary oil). In sections of four I applied the oil to my hair & scalp. To give this treatment an extra boost I really focused on my problem areas, that will be my edges, nape & crown area.
In my previous post, I talked about me dealing with hair breakage. As I’m stretching my hair to 20 weeks, I need to be on my A-Game!
With the oil treatment I sat under a hooded dryer for 15 minutes. I was hyped, my hair felt good, because it had a soft feel to it.
“This oil mixture is definitely a keeper”
To detox my scalp I mixed SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Shampoo with 5 drops of Tea Tree & Rosemary oil. In sections of two I shampooed my hair and massage my scalp longer than I normally do. I wanted to will give my hair some TLC, especially my problem areas. Because I did a treatment before shampoo, I noticed that my hair wasn’t stiff or dry. So doing an oil treatment is a must to retain the softness.
You know what time it is? Condition time! When my hair was 60% dry, I applied the SheaMoisture Manuka Honey & Mafura Oil Intensive Hydration Conditioner. Applying the conditioner was quick and & simple. In sections of four I applied the conditioner to my hair and sat under the hooded dryer for 30 minutes.
“Let’s hydrate this hair strands”
To end my routine I used Mizani D’tangle Moisturizing Leave-In Milk spray, for moisture, and Cantu Shea Butter Leave in Conditioning Repair Cream, for protein. Because of Corona, we are staying in, so I styled my hair in a bun and called it a day.
How was your wash routine?
Take care of your hair & see you the next time, Eems!
