Wash day (Thursday)

My hair was screaming for a wash.  I was free from work .. so I decided to wash my hair .. Well co-wash my hair. I haven’t co-washed my hair in a long time. I remember the days that I loved co-washing my hair .. I need to do it much more often.

[1] I deep condition my hair on dry hair. I used ORS replenishing conditioner (I finished the bottle). When I condition my hair I always use oils. For this DC I used: macadamia, grape seed, castor, peppermint and rosemary oil.  I randomly picked this oil except for castor oil. Castor oil is one of my fav oil for DC.  I used my hooded hair dryer (Braun Drying Hood Elegance HLH 20) for about 30 min and then DC another 30 minutes without heat.

Wash day – Sunday 10 March

HOT OIL TREATMENT

I started with hot oil treatment. I have been looking for the best oil to use. Ugh there are so many options. So I decided to use my regular oils. What are my regular oils … well coconut, castor and olive oil. I used coconut oil for the length of my hair and my mixture of castor and olive oil (that I wanna finish) for my scalp. I warmed the oils up with hot boiled water and left it on my hair for 40 minutes. I love the way how my looks so shiny .. Let see what other benefits is has for my hair.

SHAMPOO
I used Tresseme Naturals Nourishing Moisture Shampoo. I’m in loveee with there conditioned but I never used the shampoo .. so it was about time. I was my hair in 2 sections. It make it easier for me to wash my hair. I like the shampoo but I’m not in love with it yet. I’m planning to use this shampoo for the whole month.

Washday

So last Sunday I decided to take off my u-part wig. I have been rocking my u-part wig as a protective style for some weeks now … 5 weeks :). Normal after 2 weeks I’m done with these protective style … but man because of the frickin’ cold weather I needed to protect my hair.

So I took off my u-part wig .. Ooee I was so happy to see my hair loool .. I missed it. Anyway it was late and I was watching a Nijah movie .. so I was lazy to comb my hair. Monday it was time to wash my hair. Because I haven’t wash my hair properly for 5 weeks .. I decided to clarify my hair. I used ORS Olive Oil Creamy Aloe Shampoo.

SHEDDING!!!!!

Ow woow what a week .. my hair has been shedding like crazy .. I think it’s because of the weather and also too much direct heat. I live in the Netherlands so  its autumn season #smh. Normally my wash day is on Saturday .. but I had some plans yesterday. I went to a M.A.C. workshop .. I had a good time.

So I’m washing my hair today. Because of the shedding I’m going to steam my hair with a towel .. yes a towel and a hair dryer. I learned this technique from http://kara-zeytin.blogspot.nl/. Below you will find here YouTube video.

I DC with ORS replenishing conditioner and mixed it with different oils (Olive/Castor/Peppermint/Rosemary/Almond oil). I sat under the dryer for 30 minutes and then co-washed my hair with TRESemme.

I really need to concentrate on my hair more. Lately I’ve been slacking.

Washday

Every Saturday is hair time. What I mean by that is washing day. Today it was time to clarify my hair. I used ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo. Today I tried something new. I put an amount of the shampoo in a different container and mix it with a little bit of water. Why?? I don’t prepoo my hair before a clarifying wash… so I mixed my shampoo with water to retaining moisture. After my wash ..  I co-washed my hair with TREsemme (iLove Tresemme).

Second step: deep condition .. Today I tried a new product, Motions CPR treatment conditioner. It’s my little sister DC and she loves it. So it thought let me try it and see if it will work for me.

Motions

The DC is thick and its mixed with some herbs. Normally I mixed my DC with oil, but because I’m using it for the first time I left that out. I wanna see how it works.
