WASH DAY

WASH DAY

Wash Day came early this past week because I got new products that I couldn’t wait to try. My list of new products can be found here.

First of all, I Shampooed with one of the samples of the Shea Moisture Superfruit 10-in1 Renewal System. I applied this directly to my dry scalp like I was oiling it before rinsing it out with water. I learnt this from Felicia Leatherwood when she spoke at the Nigerian Natural Hair and Beauty Show last week and it really helped. (I have always had the problem of getting rid of that buildup that is hidden on my scalp between my twists but with this tip thats no longer a problem).

Secondly, I Deep Conditioned with Obia Naturals Babassu Deep Conditioner. I applied this product from my roots to tips and left it under a plastic cap and shower cap for about an hour. When I was done rinsing, I had super soft hair and even hands!

Next, I did a quick cold apple cider vinegar rinse to seal my hair cuticles and add shine.

Following that, I applied Giovanni Direct Leave-in conditioner and detangled and twisted my hair with Camille Rose Naturals Almond Jai Twisting Butter.

I hardly do twist outs because I don’t like how they look on me but these results are making me change my mind.

How was your last wash day? What did you do differently?  Share below!

    That definition! I love!
    Did you rinse out the Giovanni conditioner completely or you left it in?

      Thanks dear! I didn’t rinse out the Giovanni Leave in but I specifically used it before the butter because it does nothing for my hair in regards to curl definition or softness. So I’m sure it’s all from the Camille Rose Almond Jai Twisting Butter.

    Question — how long did you leave the twists in before taking them out? And, how would you maintain it daily? I’m always fighting moisture problems in my daughter’s hair and tangles (she’s 6 — so she’s a bit hard on her hair). Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! I just found your blog and love it.

      Thank you Shauna!
      My hair takes two days to completely air dry because of how thick it is. But when I wear my hair in twists, it takes less time. In that post, I took the twists out the next day and achieved those results. My advice on dealing with tangles is to wash her hair in twists and also keep her hair stretched in a particular style till her next washday. I know it’s a bit difficult with kids seeing how playful they can be but ten big braids should help. As for maintenance, I spritz my hair with a water based moisturiser every two or three days. My two favourites are Taliah Waajid Protective Mist Bodifier and Sulphur 8 Braid spray.

    Some how my comment got lost — I’ll try again. How long did you leave the twists in before the twist out? Also, how do you maintain this look daily. I have a 6 year old and I’m always trying keep her hair moistured, but when her hair is free, it gets dry so quickly and very tangled (mind you, she’s a little rough on her hair). Any advice you have, would be great. Thanks. I love this look. I also just discovered your blog and I think its great. Thanks!
