Cut cut cut 16 February ’14!!

 The last time I trimmed my hair was in March’ 13. I was in shock when I looked up the date. This year I need to do better. I’m slacking with my regimen and it’s really showing. My problems are that I have uneven and thin ends.  The only way for me to correct it, is to cut my hair.

blog 2014.02.19 productsSaturday night before I went to bed. I prepped my hair. – Off course I washed my hair in the afternoon. See my recent post ‘wash day 15 February ’14’.-  I already applied Granier Fructis Nutri 3 leave –in when I was done washing my hair. I will say that my hair was about 50% dry in the evening. I sprayed Creme of Nature Argan Oil Strength & Shine Leave-in Conditioner all over my hair. I use this leave to give my hair some strength because I planned to flat iron my hair. I then used ORS Wrap/Set Mousse. To protect my hair I used John Frieda Frizz Ease serum. Two pumps of this product is just enough. I styled my hair in a low bun, put a scarf on and I was ready for bed. I didn’t apply any heat on my hair.

wash day 15 December ’13

2013.12.15 wash day

Step  1 -Pre-Poo

 [A] every time I start with my wash routine, I make sure that my hair is detangled. I do my detangle method in four parts, it’s easier for me that way and less damaging to the hair. [B] Each part I apply my oil pre-poo mix first, then I put some oil on my scalp and massage it. To make the treatment complete, in small sections I apply the pre-poo mix. I made sure that I gave my problem areas (nape, edges and ends) some extra love.  [C] I cover my hair with a plastic bag and sit under the dryer for 30 minutes.

Step 2 – Wash

[D] My wash routine is so simple and short. For this wash I used Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo. I can’t wait to finish this bottle, I don’t like it. It’s supposed to be a moisturizing shampoo, but I don’t agree. Because I don’t like this shampoo I only washed my hair once, normally I wash it twice.

Step 3 – Deep condition

[E] After the wash I cover my hair with a cotton t-shirt for about 20 minutes to soak up the water. I applied Nexxus Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing Conditioner on each section, covered my hair with a plastic bag and sat under the dryer for 45 minutes.  What I love about this conditioner is that you don’t need a lot of product. I didn’t mix this conditioner with an oil. It’s the first time that I use the shampoo and conditioner together. Let’s see how that will work out.

Oke so after washing my hair I wasn’t happy. My hair was moist from the conditioner but my hair was still stiff from the freaking shampoo. I was extra gentle with my hair while rinsing out the conditioner.

Step 4 – Leave-in-conditioner

[F] I applied Garnier Fructis Repair leave-in all over my hair. Normally I will apply the leave-in in small sections, but I’m lazy. I concentrated on my ends, nape and edges. [G] After applying the leave-in I let my hair air-dry.

Step 5 – Moisturize & Seal

[H] In small sections I applied my moisture mix (ORS Hair Lotion x Rosewater). For sealing I used John Frieda Frizz Serum. My hair wasn’t 100% dry when moisturizing my hair. The rest of the air-drying was overnight.

Nexxus Therappe Luxurious Moisturizing Shampoo is not my friend !!!

Quick wash routine 28 November ‘13

Last week Sunday I didn’t wash my hair, don’t ask me why (laziness ughh L). This week my hair was screaming for a wash but I couldn’t  find the time to do it. Last night (Friday) LeHomie had

2013.11.30 quick wash routine

a FABULOUS DINER EVENT. I was so lost what to do with my hair, but the important thing what needed to be done is wash my hair.

I normally don’t do a full wash routine during the week, so I was really lost how to go about it. It was late, I was tired and had to go to work the next day. So I decided to do a quick wash around  23:00 PM (giving myself the side eye).

Wash day 20th October ’13

[1] I started my wash day with a pre-poo. I really need to stick with my weekly pre poo treatment. For my scalp I used an oil mix (castor + peppermint oil). On my hair I applied Herbal Essence ‘Hello Hydration’. Before applying the conditioner, I sprayed my hair with water, just to make my hair a bit damp.  I really like this conditioner for a pre-poo and co-wash treatment. I pre-pooed my hair for 30 minutes without heat.

[2] I used Nexxus ‘Humectress Ultimate Moisturizing shampoo’. This is my 3rd time using this shampoo and to be honest I don’t find it moisturizing. It does make my hair soft, but I can’t connect on the ultimate moisturizing part. 2013.10.20 wash day
