#Co Wash Wednesdays

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

My hair has been feeling a big *ugh* lately. I want to say that its being ambiguous but I’m not sure at the moment. My Sunday wash day was horrific so I was eager to do my Co-Wash Wednesday.

But, after today, I’m feeling a bit insecure about my hair…

“Simplicity is Key”

[1] Pre-poo: I pre-pooed using JBCO to my scalp and massaged it in using my fingers. My scalp is feeling a bit sensitive so that massage felt really good. I put on a shower cap and left it in for about 4 hours, due to my best friend.
[2] Under warm water, I rinsed my hair within 4 sections to really allow my hair to open up to absorb the moisture in.
[3] Co-wash: Applied my favorite conditioner, Herbal Essence Hello Hydration Conditioner. I put on a shower cap and let the conditioner sit on my hair a bit as I finished my shower.
[4] Under cold water, I detangled my hair to help with rinsing the conditioner out.

Results: My hair felt so weird. It felt a bit stringy and felt as if there’s a film over it. I haven’t clarified my hair in a while so I might have to do that very soon. It also was weird to me because my hair did not feel mushy at all. I don’t know if my hair is in dying need of protein.

The reason why I said I’m insecure about my hair is because of my problem area, the front section. My edges have been struggling a lot lately and I had a receding hairline since I was a little girl. This was wayyyy before my mother relaxed my hair. I’ve never seen it look like that before and it just made me feel very ugly and caused me to have doubts again.
But, I’m not giving up!

[5] Styling: I proceeded using the L.O.C method using my favorite trio:
            L: Water
            O: Shea Butter
            C: BB Oil Moisturizer with Castor Oil and Aloe

Twists are not my thing anymore so I decided to braid my hair in big plats. I’m so happy that my braids are not taking me so long anymore. Usually, it takes me roughly 1 hour 30 minutes to do my braids but it only took me 30 minutes to do this. Once I was finished with the braids, I decided to use perm rods on the ends.

I’ve been using Simplicity Oil recently to my edges and nape area. Hopefully this will help out with my problem area. I’m not giving up.

How was your wash day experience?

The Wash Day Experience


  1. I want to try the JBCO. Have you seen any results with the massages? BTW great post and don't get discouraged you're doing great.

  2. I've had JBCO for a while but I haven't religiously applied it to my hair so I haven't really noticed any growth. But now since I'm having this setback, I will be applying it more so hopefully I will see more results. And thank you so much for your motivation. I just felt as if I take 2 steps forward, I take 3 steps back. This time, I'm not giving up! :)

  3. I struggle with thin edges too. Use the JBCO consistently and you will see results.

    1. Thank you! I've been using Simplicity Oil on my edges lately as well.
