Wash Day: July 19

For my new regimen, I changed my wash days from Saturday to Sunday since I rarely do anything on this day. But, I’ve been MIA so I’m just going to sum up everything that happened since my last post:
  •   My hair needed protein and it helped to take the tangles away from my last wash day which is posted here
  • My hair + rollersets do not mix! I might have to wait until my relaxer day to try to do a rollerset
  •  I straightened my hair with my flat iron instead which only lasted a few days due to the rain and I oiled my scalp
  • Yes, I was looking a complete mess. My new growth was so thick that one of my combs broke

So, I had to grab some of my products and turned Saturday into my Sunday’s wash day.
[1] Pre-poo: I used Hollywood Beauty Olive Cholesterol + 6 Drops of Hollywood Beauty Sweet Almond Oil in each section. I had my pre-poo on for 30 minutes with heat using Laila Ali Conditioning Cap
[2] Shampoo: Aussie Moist Shampoo
[3] I decided to try an oil rinse just so that it can help to soften the hair as well as helping me to retain moisture
[4] I also added Aunt Jackie’s In Control Moisturizing & Softening Conditioner for 1 hour with heat.
Babyyyy when I say S L I P! This oil rinse gave me life. My hair felt like butter afterwards and I didn’t want to take my hands out of my hair. I only had a few tangles but I detangled in the shower with a wide tooth comb and an alternative Denman brush. I didn’t have a lot of shedded hairs even though I haven’t touched my hair in a week.

[5] So, it was my mother’s birthday and we went out to dinner so I was running out of time to air-dry my hair. I decided to do the LOCO method since I would be using a blow-dryer.
L- Water that was already on my hair from rinsing the conditioner
O- Oil of choice: Coconut Oil
C- Garnier Fructis Sleek & Shine Leave-in Conditioning Cream
O- Oil of choice: Coconut Oil
I got super hungry so I decided to air-dry for an hour so I can make myself some lunch, help take out my sisters hair and find some clothes to wear.
[6] An hour later, I blow dried my hair with the cool setting and wore it in a pony-puff.

Have you ever tried an oil rinse? If not, will you ever try it?
