Hi lovelies! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week as I am. (Thank God for HIS mercies).
Last week Thursday, I loosened my hair from a bun I had been wearing for the whole week in order to wash my hair. Throughout that week, I had been moisturizing my hair with Aweni Organics moisturizing hair pudding.
I had no clue what products I would be using when I started, but I eventually settled on;
- Beautifully Crafted Hot Oil Treatment with Hemp Seed Oil
- Midas Naturals Brazen Curls Detangling Co-Wash and;
- ManeChoice Crystal Orchid Biotin Infused Styling Gel
I applied Beautifully Crafted Hot Oil Treatment with Hemp Seed Oil from my roots to tips on dry hair, I sprayed some water and then covered my hair with a shower cap. I didn’t have time to rinse it out that night so I wrapped my hair to work the next day.
Once I was ready on Friday evening, I decided I wasn’t going to use shampoo and proceeded to apply Brazen curls Detangling Co-wash to my scalp, root and the ends of my hair. Then I detangled and twisted my hair into 10-12 sections and covered it again with a plastic bag. ( I couldn’t find my shower cap). Once I was done, I went to bed. 😀
There is no rule book to wash-day. Take your time and adjust it to your lifestyle.
So I dragged my wash-day to Saturday evening after work and this time I simply rinsed out the conditioner and pre-poo treatment with cold water after steaming for about 10 minutes.
To STYLE, I squeezed out the excess water with a t-shirt and applied the ManeChoice Crystal Orchid Biotin Infused Styling Gel to each of my sectioned twists then pin curled it. I did not know what to expect because, I have actually never tried pin curls or pin curling with a gel so I was wondering what my results would be like.
As you can see from the pictures above, I took down my gelled up pin curls before they dried and I was left with slightly elongated defined curls which gave me a Wash & Go look.
Full Video of how I achieved this Wash & Go can now be viewed on YouTube.
Did you notice? 3 out of the 4 products I used are Nigerian Brands! Aweni Organics, Beautifully Crafted & Midas Naturals.
…and let me quickly add that, I don’t fuss or panic about wash-days, rather I just create time for it. Understand that your hair is yours and a part your body that should not be a chore or a day to avoid. Rather, see it as a day (or in my case days) to completely pamper oneself. 🙂
I just think this meme is hilarious by the way!
